Colombian squash star Miguel
extended his haul of PSA
titles to 24 when he dismissed Peruvian teenager Diego
in the final of the Rancho
event in its inaugural year at Club
Rancho San Francisco
in the Ecuador capital Quito.
Appearing in the first Tour event in Ecuador for almost four years,
World No.14 Rodriguez reached the 32nd final of his career when he beat
Mexico's No.4 seed Eric
in four games.
Fifth seed Elias, the 17-year-old from Lima who made history in May by
becoming the first Peru player to win a PSA Tour title, made his
breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he upset second-seeded Mexican
Elias made his third Tour final in three months after seeing off
unseeded Mexican Erik
in the other semi.
Elias, ranked almost 80 places lower than the favourite, did his best to
make an impact against Rodriguez in the final.
But a flawless performance by the Colombian maestro saw Rodriguez win
11-6, 11-4, 11-5 in 33 minutes to claim his third Tour title in Ecuador.
