Just a week after losing to the lower-ranked Pakistani in the
opening round of the Edmonton Open in Canada, Mexico's
Alfredo Avila earned his revenge in the ideal way by beating
Farhan Zaman in the final of the 5th Annual Betty F
Griffin Florida State Open Squash Championship to win the
PSA World Tour Challenger 10 title at the Lifetime
Athletic Club in Boca Raton in the US state of
Top seed Avila reached the final - his seventh on the Tour -
after a four-game win over Hisham Mohd Ashour, the former
World No.11 from Egypt making his return to the international
circuit after a seven-month break.
Second seed Zaman, the World No.68 from Peshawar, also needed
four games to overcome unseeded Frenchman Johan Bouquet
in the other semi to reach his third Tour final of the year.
Still smarting from his premature exit in Alberta, 22-year-old
Avila was determined to make amends.
The World No.62 from Mexico City duly despatched Zaman 11-9,
11-7, 11-5 to win the fifth PSA World Tour title of his career -
and his second Florida State Open crown since 2010.
