19 March 2012
RESULTS: PSA International 35 Winnipeg
Building and Decorating Ltd Manitoba Open, Winnipeg, Canada
 Borja Golan (ESP) bt  Laurens Jan Anjema
(NED) 11-4, 11-5, 11-1 (42m)
Spain's Borja Golan celebrated the
biggest squash title of his career when he upset top seed
Laurens Jan Anjema in the final of the Winnipeg Building
and Decorating Ltd Manitoba Open, the PSA World Tour
International 35 event in its ninth successive year at
Winnipeg Squash Racquet Club in Winnipeg, Canada.
The 42-minute 11-4, 11-5, 11-1 victory
over the world No9 from the Netherlands - his second triumph
over a higher-ranked opponent in 24 hours - emphatically marks
Golan's comeback from a career-threatening knee injury which
took the Spaniard out of the game for eight months two years
"My game plan was to try and get a lead in
each game so that LJ couldn't gain confidence in his attacking
shots," explained the former world No10, currently ranked just
outside the top 20.
"I also did a very good job of getting LJ
out of the T and keep control of it myself.
"The greatest thing that I was proud of
was my concentration," added the 29-year-old from Santiago de
Compostela. "I was able to stay focused all the way through the
match and especially at the end of each game.
"This was a very good match for me and a
very good win," exclaimed Golan, whose PSA Tour title tally has
now risen to 26.
A despondent Anjema tweeted later: "Lost
badly in the final today. This is not how you want to play a
final. You don't want to be flat vs the hurricane. Congrats to
