Koukal Captures Caboolture Crown

Czech squash star Jan Koukal celebrated his second successive PSA World Tour title in Australia in a week when he beat Sebastiaan Weenink in the final of the Caboolture Open, the PSA Challenger 5 event in its fourth year at Caboolture Squash & Fitness in Caboolture in Queensland.

The world No74 from Prague reached the final - the 46th of his career - after only dropping one game.

A massive quarter-final breakthrough by Weenink saw the unseeded Dutchman topple second-seeded New Zealander Evan Williams in five games to reach the semis - when he again survived a five-game battle to overcame Hong Kong qualifier Tsz Fung Yip.

It was the Rotterdam-born 27-year-old's second appearance in a Tour final - and second in a row against Koukal!

Despite the effects of the previous two rounds, world No 117 Weenink took Koukal to a tie-break in the first game - but the top seed took control thereafter, winning 14-12, 11-4, 11-4 in 50 minutes to net the 26th Tour title of his career.

The Caboolture success is the latest milestone in a formidable year for the 12-time Czech national champion - who has already competed in 22 Tour events in 2013, reaching the finals on eight occasions and claiming four titles!
