COPPINGER LOSES IN GUATEMALA FINAL

Miguel Angel Rodriguez was again back on the winner's podium of the Torneo Internacional PSA Sportaafter in the Guatemala capital Guatemala City
May 13 2013
 

Four years after clinching the Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta title for the first time, Colombian squash star Miguel Angel Rodriguez was again back on the winner's podium after upsetting South African Stephen Coppinger in the final of the PSA World Tour International 25 event at Sporta in the Guatemala capital Guatemala City.

The third seed from Bogota made his breakthrough in the semi-finals, dismissing event favourite Laurens Jan Anjema in four games. Now celebrating the 30th PSA Tour final appearance of his illustrious career, world No23 Rodriguez faced the in-form Coppinger, ranked five places higher. Both players are currently coached by Australia's US-based former world champion David Palmer.

It was only the pair's second meeting - the first being on Rodriguez's home soil last September when the local hero secured a four-game victory in the Colombian Open semi-finals.

Coppinger was after revenge - but again it was the Colombian who prevailed, winning 11-5, 9-11, 11-8, 11-0 to claim the 22nd PSA Tour title of his career.

Semi-finals:
[3] Miguel Angel Rodriguez (COL) bt [1] Laurens Jan Anjema (NED) 7-11, 11-9, 11-3, 11-5
[2] Stephen Coppinger (RSA) bt Cesar Salazar (MEX) 11-7, 11-4, 11-4

Final:
[3] Miguel Angel Rodriguez (COL) bt [2] Stephen Coppinger (RSA) 11-5, 9-11, 11-8, 11-0
