Rodriguez Romps To Second Sporta Success

years after clinching the Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta title for the first time, Colombian squash star Miguel Angel Rodriguez was again back on the winner's podium after upsetting South African Stephen Coppinger in the final of the PSA World Tour International 25 event at Sporta in the Guatemala capital Guatemala City.

The third seed from Bogota made his breakthrough in the semi-finals, dismissing event favourite Laurens Jan Anjema in games.

Now celebrating the 30th PSA Tour final appearance of his illustrious career, world No23 Rodriguez faced the in-form Coppinger, ranked five places higher.

Both players are currently coached by Australia's US-based former world champion David Palmer.

It was only the pair's second meeting - the first being on Rodriguez's home soil last September when the local hero secured a -game victory in the Colombian Open semi-finals.

Coppinger was after revenge - but again it was the Colombian who prevailed, winning 11-5, 9-11, 11-8, 11-0 to claim the 22nd PSA Tour title of his career.

Coppinger Coasts Into Sporta Semis

Second-seeded South African Stephen Coppinger scored his second successive straight games win in the VI Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta to secure a semi-final berth in the PSA World Tour International 25 squash event at Sporta in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

The 28-year-old world No18 from Cape Town despatched Mexican qualifier Erik Tepos Valtierra 11-8, 11-5, 11-1 and will now face a further Mexican Cesar Salazar for a place in the final.

It was 12 months ago that Cesar defeated Arturo Salazar in the event's final to end his twin brother's two-year reign as Sporta champion!

Cruelly, the pair met again in this year's first round, with unseeded Cesar winning in three games to earn a quarter-final clash with fellow non-seed Eddie Charlton.

The 25-year-old Mexican had to recover from 2/1 down to topple the Englishman 10-12, 8-11, 11-6, 11-1, 11-2 to set up his meeting with Coppinger.

Top seed Laurens Jan Anjema was also taken the full distance by Campbell Grayson before beating the New Zealander 11-7, 3-11, 11-7, 1-11, 11-6 in the top half of the draw.

The Dutchman ranked 17 in the world will now face third seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez following the Colombian's 11-6, 11-4, 11-4 defeat of US champion Christopher Gordon.
