Powers To Proteva Prize
seed Alfredo Avila claimed the inaugural Proteva Sports Open
title after surviving a 50-minute all-Mexican final of the PSA
Challenger 5 squash event at Squash Insurgentes in Xalapa,
Veracruz, in Mexico.
this week's latest PSA world rankings, the 21-year-old from Mexico City
rose to a career-high No72 - becoming, for the first time, the second
highest-ranked player in his country.
opponent in the final was 29-year-old Eric Galvez, a long-time
former Mexican number one who is enjoying a significant return to form
over the past month.
Avila was too strong for the former world No33, now ranked outside the
top 100 - winning 15-13, 11-7, 11-9.
title triumph marks young Mexican Avila's fourth PSA World Tour title -
but his first on home soil.
