RESULTS:  PSA Challenger 5 Madeira International Open Squash, Madeira, Portugal

Declan James Marks International First In Madeira
Declan James claimed his first overseas PSA World Tour title when he beat compatriot Chris Fuller in the final of the Madeira International Open Squash, the inaugural PSA Challenger 5 event at Onda Revital Club in Canico on the Portuguese island of Madeira.
Fuller, who was competing in only his third event since suffering an ankle injury earlier this year, looked a shadow of the player who had eased into the final without dropping a game, as top seed James romped to an 11-3, 11-3, 11-1 victory in just 39 minutes.
But while Nottingham-based James celebrated his third win in as many matches over the World No.119 since the turn of the year, Fuller was left lamenting the slippery on-court conditions after suffering a heavy fall during the opening game.
The second seed, who admitted afterwards that he tweaked his adductor during the slip, was forced to change his footwear twice during the match.
In contrast, World No.80 James ruthlessly exploited Fullerís tentative movement and amassed an impressive winner count to claim the opening two games 11-3.
Devoid of confidence and facing an uphill task, Fuller suffered another blow when his request to switch courts failed.
And despite winning the opening point of the third game, the 23-year-old capitulated spectacularly to lose the next 11 points and end his hopes of avenging his first round defeat at the Kent Open last month.
ďAnyone who has seen Chris play will know that is nowhere near what he is capable of doing and I just hope Chris didnít injure himself during the match," said James afterwards.
ďWe have all struggled slightly on the courts this week but I think I managed to handle the conditions a little bit better today," added the 21-year-old who now boasts a pair of Tour titles after making his PSA title breakthrough at the Nottingham Open at his home club last August.
"Iíve had a lot of bad starts this week, especially in the first games, so it was crucial to get the early momentum and I think that made it difficult for Chris to comeback.Ē
Fuller, who refused to make excuses for his below-par performance, paid tribute to his younger opponent.
ďIím not sure what was different today.  It was a strange match and I just didnít feel right and really struggled on court.
ďAll credit to Declan, he didnít do anything wrong and didnít give me any time to settle. Thatís now two finals Iíve lost against him so it would be great if I didnít play him in my next one.Ē
James (pictured below receiving his trophy) will now head to the Nottingham Open in August to defend his title, where he is seeded to face Fuller again at the quarter-final stage.
