Maiden Title For Miranda

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 British Virgin Islands Open,
Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Maiden Title For Miranda

Argentina's Gonzalo Miranda won the first PSA World Tour title of his career when he beat Manoel Pereira in an all-South American final of the British Virgin Islands Open Squash Championship, the PSA Challenger 5 event in its second year at Pasea Estate in Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

Top seed Miranda reached the final after dethroning defending champion Christopher Binnie, the third seed from Jamaica, in the semi-finals.

Unseeded Brazilian Manoel Pereira, ranked outside the world top 200, made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he defeated fourth-seeded Canadian Thomas Brinkman. A semi-final win over Englishman Tom Pashley took the 28-year-old from Sao Paulo into the first Tour final of his career.

But Miranda, the 23-year-old world No84 from La Plata, was on top throughout the final - despatching Pereira 11-2, 11-2, 11-4 in 37 minutes to take the trophy.
