Mighty Miguel Wins Medellin Crown

Colombian squash star Miguel Angel Rodriguez delighted the packed and partisan crowd at the Club Campestre de Medellin in Medellin when he beat Andrew Wagih Shoukry in the final of the Campestre PSA Medellin Open to win the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event in his home country.

"It was a vibrant match from beginning to end," said tournament spokesman Juan Carlos Santacruz of the much-anticipated clash between top seed Rodriguez, the world No27 from Bogota, and third seed Shoukry, the 21-year-old from Cairo who upset second-seeded Finn Henrik Mustonen to make the final.

"The Egyptian always faithful to his style attacked constantly yet covered every part of the court; it seemed small due to his incredible coverage of the court, yet Rodriguez compensated this with his speed, precision and rhythm," added Santacruz.

After surviving a long first game tie-break, Rodriguez went on to close out the match 14-12, 11-5, 11-9 in 45 minutes to earn the 19th PSA Tour title of his career, and his third on home soil.

Shoukry Outshines Mustonen In Medellin

Egypt's Andrew Wagih Shoukry shook off determined opposition by Henrik Mustonen in the semi-finals of the Campestre PSA Medellin Open to upset the second-seeded Finn in the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Club Campestre de Medellin in Medellin, Colombia.

"Mustonen won the first game, he pressured with deep lengths and rhythm changes while Wagih was erratic," explained tournament spokesman Juan Carlos Santacruz.

"Afterwards everything changed, Wagih became more precise in his attack; Mustonen's shots didn't seem to pass the mid court while the Egyptian's shots became generous and prolific, winning three consecutive games to the final."

Shoukry's 7-11, 11-4, 11-8, 11-9 victory in 50 minutes takes the 21-year-old from Cairo into the 12th PSA Tour final of his career - and his second in South America this year.

Colombian favourite Miguel Angel Rodriguez had a much easier route to the final when Welsh opponent Peter Creed, the No4 seed, was forced to retire early in the opening game with the score at 6-1.

"Semi-final withdrawal - hamstring strain!" tweeted Creed later. "Need to try and get ready for Bogota and Cartagena."

World No27 Rodriguez, the top-ranked Colombian from Bogota, is celebrating his maiden Tour final of the year - but the 26th of his career and his third on home soil.

Home Hero Rodriguez Rallies To Medellin Semis

Top-seeded Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez kept hopes of local success alive in the Campestre PSA Medellin Open when he beat Argentina's Hernan D'Arcangelo to reach the semi-finals of the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Club Campestre de Medellin in Medellin, Colombia.

A confident performance by the world No27 from Bogota saw Rodriguez despatch his fellow South American 11-3, 11-6, 11-9 in just 30 minutes to set up a meeting with Welshman Peter Creed.

Fourth seed Creed, the Welsh champion, defeated Canadian Dane Sharp 13-11, 6-11, 11-8, 11-7.

But third seed Andrew Wagih Shoukry was taken the full distance before earning his anticipated place in the last four.

"Wagih, 21, started playing with anxiety but with time he became more precise in his winning shots and in five games he advanced to the semi-finals," said tournament spokesman Juan Carlos Santacruz after the Egyptian's 6-11, 11-5, 11-7, 9-11, 11-3 defeat of England's Jaymie Haycocks in 62 minutes.

Shoukry will now face Finland's Henrik Mustonen for a place in the final. The second seed maintained his straight games run in the event with an 11-7, 11-8, 11-8 victory over Gonzalo Miranda of Argentina.

Seeds Make Medellin Quarters

The top four seeds safely made it through to the quarter-finals of the Campestre PSA Medellin Open after surviving contrasting first round matches in the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Club Campestre de Medellin in Medellin, Colombia.

Fourth seed Peter Creed, the Welshman who won the Gibraltar Open in his last outing on the PSA Tour, survived the longest battle of the day against unseeded Mexican Erik Tepos Valtierra. After winning the first game, Creed suffered a series of unforced errors which caused his lower-ranked opponent to draw level.

"In spite of this, the Welshman played with precision, and won the tie-break in the third game," said tournament spokesman Juan Carlos Santacruz. "He knew when to attack and won the match."

The 11-7, 9-11, 12-10, 11-4 victory in 82 minutes takes Creed through to a quarter-final clash with Dane Sharp, a Canadian who also arrived in Colombia fresh from PSA World Tour title success, at last week's National Squash Academy Open in his home town Toronto.

Sharp defeated Daniel Rios, a 24-year-old Colombian who qualified against expectation to make his maiden appearance in a PSA Tour event.

Colombian interest in the event is being led with distinction by the country's top-ranked player Miguel Angel Rodriguez. The world No27 from Bogota imposed his authority on Mexican Alfredo Avila to beat the 21-year-old from Mexico City 11-8, 15-13, 12-10 in 65 minutes.

"The best game of the night," said Santacruz.
