Delierre Celebrates Hat-Trick In Pittsburgh

Canada's Shawn Delierre brought a sensational end-of-year run to a magnificent climax when he won the Pittsburgh Open, the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at Rivers Club in Pittsburgh, USA.

It was the third Tour title triumph against the odds in four weeks for the 28-year-old from Montreal. Delierre began his run in Rhode Island, USA, in November when he won the Rhodysquash RI Open as a non-seed - then continued his form at the beginning of the month on home soil where he claimed the Edmonton Open as the No7 seed.

The fourth seed in Pittsburgh, Delierre made his breakthrough in the semi-finals where he despatched top-seeded American Julian Illingworth in four games in a repeat of the RI Open final.

The Canadian number two, ranked 63 in the world, took a two-game lead in the final against Stephane Galifi - but the second-seeded Italian fought back to draw level.

Delierre kept up the pressure, however, and after 76 minutes closed out the match 11-8, 11-8, 4-11, 8-11, 11-8 to secure the ninth PSA title of his career.
