Barrington Battles To Oklahoma Glory
England's 'marathon man' Jonah Barrington battled for almost five hours over four matches to end up as the Osso/Bone & Joint Oklahoma City Squash Open champion at the Santa Fe Club in Oklahoma City, USA.

Like his illustrious father Jonah Barrington, the six-times British Open champion, 26-year-old Joey is no stranger to marathon encounters on a squash court.

Last week in Texas, Barrington endured a 140-minute final in the Sanders Morris Harris Houston Open, eventually emerging as runner-up after five games – three of which went to tie-breaks!

In Oklahoma City, Colombia's fifth seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez kept Barrington on court for 132 minutes before the Somerset star finally prevailed 11-9, 2-11, 11-7, 11-8 to earn his 12th place in a PSA Tour final.

The top seed faced Canada's No2 seed Matthew Giuffre for the Osso/Bone & Joint trophy. But despite having played three-times longer in the previous round than his opponent, Barrington maintained his momentum in the final to survive an 84-minute clash to beat Giuffre 9-11, 11-7, 11-10 (2-0), 11-4.

The hard-earned triumph takes Barrington's career tally to three PSA Tour titles, following his maiden success in the Ontario Open in Canada in March 2004, then the Brazil Open win in Brasilia in April 2005.

Richards & Rodriguez Romp To Oklahoma Semi-Finals
Englishman Tom Richards and Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez romped into the semi-finals of the Osso/Bone & Joint Oklahoma City Squash Open after producing impressive straight games upsets in the quarter-finals of the PSA Tour event at Santa Fe Club in Oklahoma City , USA.

Seventh seed Richards beat fellow Englishman Mark Heather, the third seed, 11-8, 11-3, 11-4 in 38 minutes. The world No76 from Surrey, who celebrated his 20th birthday this month, will now face Canada 's Matthew Giuffre for a place in his first PSA final.

The No2 seed from Edmonton twice came from behind to beat compatriot Ian Power 6-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-6, 11-5 in 67 minutes.

Miguel Angel Rodriguez, the fifth seed from Bogotá, needed just 36 minutes to overcome fourth-seeded Australian Raj Nanda 11-9, 11-7, 11-4 to claim his fourth successive semi-final berth on the PSA Tour.

The 20-year-old Colombian will now face England 's Joey Barrington for a place in the final. The top seed from Somerset battled for 53 minutes to quash eighth seed Christopher Gordon 11-7, 11-3, 11-8 in his second victory over the 20-year-old from the USA in a week.
