Richards Romps to Vitis Victory

May 26, 2009

England’s top seed Tom Richards beat seventh-seeded Mexican Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira in the final of the inaugural Seegarten Vitis Open to win the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash title at Vitis Sports Center in Schlieren, near Zurich, in Switzerland.

The 11-4, 11-1, 12-10 victory gives Richards, the 22-year-old world No34 from Surrey, his second PSA Tour title of year – and the third of his career.

“Tom won convincingly as Ferreira seemed to feel the effects of his semi-final marathon from the day before,” reported tournament organiser John Williams. “Ferreira had a brief reprise in the third game as he led most of the way, but it was Richards who was able to re-assert his authority around the middle of the court, playing the ‘end game’ to perfection to capture the Seegarten title.”
