Rodriguez Takes Tortugas Title

Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez emerged victorious in the final of the Tortugas Open between the event's top two seeds to win the $18,750 PSA World Tour squash title at Tortugas Country Club in Tortuguitas, Argentina - successfully defending the crown he won in the last staging of the event in 2005.

The event favourite from Bogota faced second seed Julian Illingworth, the 26-year-old six-time US national champion from New York.

Rodriguez took advantage of a nervous start by the New Yorker to take a two-game lead.

But Illingworth regained the initiative from the beginning of the third and led throughout to reduce the deficit.

However, the Colombian sped to a 10-2 lead in the fourth and, despite twisting his ankle at this point, held his nerve and fought off the pain to clinch a remarkable 11-3, 11-2, 8-11, 12-10 victory after 56 minutes.

Rodriguez, the 24-year-old world No32, was celebrating his 20th Tour final - and now the 13th title triumph of his career.

Perrin Powers Through In Argentina

Frenchman Yann Perrin claimed an unexpected place in the last four of the Tortugas Open after upsetting third seed Rafael F Alarcon in the quarter-finals of the $18,750 PSA World Tour squash event at Tortugas Country Club in Tortuguitas, Argentina.

The 24-year-old fourth seed, ranked 29 places below Alarcon, beat the Brazilian 11-7, 11-6, 7-11, 12-10 in 73 minutes - and will now face his third successive South American opponent in the event for a place in the final.

Perrin meets top seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez, the world No32 from Colombia who despatched Englishman Jaymie Haycocks, the No8 seed, 11-3, 11-5, 11-5.

An all-USA battle at the bottom of the draw saw six-time US champion Julian Illingworth prevail 11-6, 11-4, 11-7 over seventh seed Christopher Gordon.

The No2 seed from New York now lines up against fourth seed Eric Galvez following the Mexican's 11-8, 11-4, 11-3 victory over sixth-seeded Colombian Bernardo Samper.
