Mexican nineteen-year-old Jesus Camacho upset the top three seeds on his way to winning the largest title of his career—the $10,000 Madison Open—this weekend at Madison Squash Workshop in Wisconsin.
Camacho first upset England’s five seed Chris Fuller in a four-game, first-round match, before taking out Seattle-based three seed Shahjahan Khan in a three-game quarterfinal.
The Cuautitlan Izcalli-native pulled off two major upsets in the final two rounds of the tournament. First, a three-game upset over two seed and U.S. champion Chris Hanson to reach Sunday’s final. In the final, Camacho held off a two-game comeback from top seed Piedro Schweertman to win the title 13-11 in the fifth game.
The Madison Open marks Camacho’s second career PSA Tour title in addition to the $5,000 2016 British Virgin Islands Open, and first U.S. Pro Series title.
