Koukal Celebrates Tour Hat-Trick In Dourados

Czech number one Jan Koukal celebrated his third consecutive PSA World Tour title success in style in Brazil when he upset top seed Rafael F Alarcon in the final of the inaugural $10,000 Cerdil Squash Open at the Physical Center in the city of Dourados.

Second seed Koukal, competing in his 13th Tour event of the year, reached the final after fighting back from a game down to beat England's No4 seed Eddie Charlton in the semi-finals.

And the final followed a similar pattern when the 26-year-old from Prague recovered from losing the first game against local hero Rafael F Alarcon.

Koukal, ranked 60 in the world, battled for 72 minutes to overcome the world No37 from Sao Paulo 8-11, 11-9, 14-12, 11-5 in 72 minutes to win the 15th PSA Tour title of his career.

The win also marks Koukal's third title triumph in six weeks, after winning the PSA Northern Ontario Championship in Canada in April and the Tour De Las Americas El Salvador Open in San Salvador earlier this month.

Seeds Safely Through In Dourados

The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the Cerdil Open after safely surviving the quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its inaugural year in the Brazilian city of Dourados.

Top seed Rafael F Alarcon now carries local hopes of success alone after Brazilian compatriots Tiago Cabral and Manoel Pereira exited the tournament after straight games losses to fourth seed Eddie Charlton and second seed Jan Koukal, respectively.

Alarcon, the world No37 from Sao Paulo, defeated sixth-seeded Argentinean Gonzalo Miranda 13-11, 11-9, 11-5 in 38 minutes to set up a semi-final clash with Dutchman Dylan Bennett.

The third seed from Eindhoven was the only semi-finalist to drop a game - and did so against Paraguay's Esteban Casarino before overcoming the fifth seed 11-6, 11-3, 9-11, 11-7.

Casarino Denies Brazilian Interest In All Quarter-Finals In Dourados

Paraguayan Esteban Casarino battled for 67 minutes in the opening round of the Cerdil Open to deny host nation Brazil representation in all four quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its inaugural year in the city of Dourados.

The fifth seed from Asuncion recovered from two games down to beat Brazilian qualifier Vinicius Rodrigues 10-12, 6-11, 13-11, 11-7, 11-9.

Casarino will now face Dutchman Dylan Bennett, the third seed who despatched Argentinean Nahuel Hernan Ramos 11-5, 11-4, 10-12, 11-6.

Brazil's Rafael F Alarcon is seeded to win the title. But the 33-year-old from Sao Paulo is through to the last eight without striking a ball - thanks to the late withdrawal of opponent Vinicius Costa, also from Brazil.

Alarcon is expected to meet Czech champion Jan Koukal in the final. Just four days after winning the El Salvador Open, the indefatigable second seed began his 13th Tour event of the year with an 11-5, 11-6, 11-7 defeat of experienced Brazilian Ronivaldo Santos.
