Koukal Marks Aussie Hat-Trick In Mackay

Koukal Marks Aussie Hat-Trick In Mackay

Czech squash star Jan Koukal rounded off a highly successful southern hemisphere tour by winning his third successive PSA World Tour title in Australia at the Mackay Open, the PSA Challenger 5 event at the Mackay Leisure Centre in Mackay in Queensland.

The top seed from Prague survived a testing semi, stemming a fight-back by Lukas Burkhart to beat the No 4 seed from Switzerland in five games.

And Koukal's opponent in the final - for the third successive time - was unseeded Dutchman Sebastiaan Weenink!

Weenink, the rapidly-improving world No 118 from The Hague, was also unseeded in the earlier Queensland Open and Caboolture Open - but outplayed a succession of higher-ranked opponents on both occasions to set up Koukal confrontations in the climax.

In the Mackay final, 27-year-old Weenink stretched the 13-time Czech champion to five games for the first time - after leading 2/1.

But world No 74 Koukal - celebrating the 47th PSA Tour final of his career - dug deep to overcome the Dutchman 11-6, 7-11, 9-11, 11-5, 11-6 after 67 minutes to notch up the 27th title of his career.
