Mexico’s Arturo Salazar won his first U.S. Pro Series title and first PSA World Tour title since 2011 this weekend in the form of the Life Time Fitness Minneapolis Open, PSA M10.
The 27-year-old came through a mammoth five-game-thriller against Clinton Leeuw, who upset top seed Declan James in the quarterfinals, in his semifinal, while Wales’ two seed Peter Creed saw off Sebastiaan Weenink to book his place in the final.
It was Creed who started the better of the two edging the opener 11-9. Salazar, former world No. 36 and current world No. 116, fought back to level the score at 1-1, and continued his momentum into the third, taking the game 11-4. Salazar continued to press in the fourth and final game to wrap up a 9-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-2 victory to capture his seventh career PSA World Tour title.
The Minneapolis Open is part of the Life Time Fitness Grand Prix, which has seven touranments on the U.S. Pro Series calendar over the year. The final Life Time Fitness event of the year, the Betty Griffin Memorial Florida Open, takes place December 1-6 in Boca Raton.
The U.S. Pro Series resumes this weekend with two events, the RC Pro Series in St. Louis, Missouri, and the Madison Open in Wisconsin.
