Miguel makes a bit of history in Caracas

Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez added a further chapter in squash history when he beat Robertino Pezzota in the final of the Isiven PSA Caracas Open to become the first winner of a PSA  title in Venezuela.

The top-seeded Colombian number one reached the 29th final of his career - and his fourth in a row in five weeks - when he overcame Argentina's Hernan D'Arcangelo in straight games in the semi-finals at the Caracas Theater Club.

His opponent, a newly-ranked qualifier from Argentina, made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he defeated Matthew Serediak - the No3 seed from Canada - in straight games.

Pezzota, a 29-year-old born in Rosario, opened his account against Rodriguez in impressive style, taking the opening game against the favourite ranked more than 400 places higher!

But Rodriguez reclaimed the upper hand, closing out the match 10-12, 11-5, 11-9, 11-5 in 47 minutes to win his third PSA title this year, and the 21st of his career.
