Galvez Marks Historic Ten In Xalapa

Eric Galvez made history in the final of the Xalapa Squash Open when he became the first Mexican to win 10 PSA World Tour titles after beating Argentina's Gonzalo Miranda at Squash Insurgentes in Xalapa in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

The 30-year-old top seed from Puebla despatched three fellow countrymen on his way to the PSA Challenger 5 event climax - thereby notching up the 25th PSA Tour final appearance of his 14-year international career.

Miranda, the No.2 seed from La Plata, overcame unseeded Brazilian Manoel Pereira in straight games to reach his fourth Tour final.

But local hero Galvez, a former World No.33, was too strong for Miranda in the final - going one better than his runner-up finish last year by winning 11-6, 11-8, 11-8 to secure his first Tour title for more than two years, and his fifth on home soil.
