Illingworth Licks Alarcon For BH Title

North American Julian Illingworth dashed hopes of a South American win in the inaugural BH Open in Brazil when he beat local hero Rafael Alarcon in the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Academia Winner Squash in Belo Horizonte.

But fourth seed Alarcon, the Brazilian number one who has reached the final in all four Tour event appearances this year, took the opening game as the packed Brazilian crowd sensed their hero's second successive upset in Belo Horizonte.

Top seed Illingworth fought back, however. The world No31 from New York - ranked 40 places higher than his 35-year-old opponent - recovered the advantage and after 69 minutes closed out the match 9-11, 11-7, 11-6, 11-9.

The triumph marks the seventh Tour title of Illingworth's career - and the second of the year after winning the Northern Ontario Championship in Canada in April.

Home Hero Rafa Reaches Belo Horizonte Final

Top-ranked Brazilian Rafael Alarcon set up a mouth-watering South America v North America clash for the BH Open title in Brazil when he upset second-seeded Englishman Adrian Waller in the semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Academia Winner Squash in Belo Horizonte.

Alarcon, the fourth seed ranked 71 in the world, battled for 71 minutes to overcome world No50 Waller 14-12, 7-11, 11-8, 11-5.

The in-form 35-year-old from Sao Paulo is celebrating the 31st PSA World Tour final of his career - but his fourth in a row in only his fourth appearance in a Tour event this year!

Alarcon will now face North American rival Julian Illingworth, the US number one and record eight-time US champion.

The 28-year-old top seed from New York was taken the full distance by young Englishman Charles Sharpes before finally emerging victorious 11-8, 9-11, 11-4, 7-11, 11-6 in 85 minutes over the 20-year-old third seed.

"Lost 3-2 to Julian Illingworth tonight in the semis, disappointed to lose but a lot of positive to take from it," tweeted Sharpes later.

Rafael Rallies Through In Belo Horizonte

Fourth seed Rafael Alarcon successfully led home hopes through to the quarter-finals of the BH Open after beating Englishman Reuben Phillips in the opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Academia Winner Squash in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

But the experienced Brazilian number one, ranked 71 in the world, needed four games to overcome 20-year-Phillips, playing for the first time in Brazil, 11-5, 8-11, 11-8, 11-8 in 48 minutes to set up his quarter-final clash with Frenchman Geoffrey Demont.

The unseeded 21-year-old from Aix-en-Provence took over an hour to see off Martin Mosnik of Slovenia 11-5, 11-9, 1-11, 7-11, 11-1.

The top two seeds survived contrasting straight games wins to earn their anticipated places in the last eight.

US favourite Julian Illingworth defeated Manoel Pereira - but took 61 minutes to get the better of the Brazilian ranked more than 140 places lower 13-11, 11-7, 11-7.

In much less than half the time, second-seeded Englishman Adrian Waller despatched local qualifier Josimar Silva 11-4, 11-3, 11-3.
