and win the PSA

Incredibly, while Mexico's top seed Salazar cruised to a straight games
win over defending champion Julian
in one semi-final, second-seeded Kiwi Grayson needed more than 100
minutes to overcome fourth-seeded Mexican
in five games in the other.
"Still feeling the effect from his semi-final game, he managed again to
get past Cesar - who spent half the time on court as Campbell did in the
tournament," said tournament promoter Andre Maur
(pictured below flanked by Grayson, right, and Salazar).
"Every rally was won hard fought and at the end it was a lucky Campbell
who edged out Salazar 11-9 in the fifth."
Grayson's 11-8, 6-11, 11-6, 7-11, 11-9 victory brings up the New
Zealander's eighth Tour title triumph – but his first of the year.
the hard training over the last few months is paying off,"
said champion Grayson later. "I am
looking forward to retaining the title next year."
