Borja reclaims home title

To the delight of a packed home crowd in Santiago, home favourite Borja Golan recaptured the Trofeo Camimo de Santiago title, beating defending champion Adrian Grant in a lengthy four game battle in the Spanish number one's home town.

Having won the event in 2008 Golan made early exits in the last two injury-troubled years, while Grant finished runner up in 2009 before winning last year's event.

Coufal claims maiden title in Santiago

Austria's Birgit Coufal claimed her maiden WISPA title after beating Lisa Aitken in the final of the Trofeo Camino de Santiago in Spain.

Having taken out top seed Alexandra Norman in the semi-finals Coufal, the fifth seeded world #88, scored a second successive upset as she beat Scottish number one Aitken, the third seed ranked #68 in three close games to take the top prize.

The pair's only previous meeting had also been in Santiago, Coufal winning their first round encounter in 2009, and both were playing their first WISPA Final.

21-Oct, Semis:
Golan and Grant to contest
Santiago final


Top seed Adrian Grant will face local favourite Borja Golan in the final of the Trofeo Camino de Santiago in Spain, after both recovered from losing the opening game to beat Greg Marche and Ollie Pett in four games in the semi-finals.

The women's final will be between Scotland's Lisa Aitken, who beat second seed Siyoli Waters for the first time in three attempts, and Austrian Birgit Coufal, the fifth seed who recorded an upset win over Canadian top seed Alexandra Norman.
 

20-Oct, Quarters:
Grant squeezes through but Coppinger falls in Santiago

Top seed Adrian Grant had to come from 2-1 down to beat New Zealand's Campbell Grayson in the quarter-finals of Trofeo Camino De Santiago, but second seed Steve Coppinger was unable to build on taking the first game against English qualifier Ollie Pett as the South African fell 18/16 in the fourth.

Grant will meet young Frenchman Greg Marche, who came from a game down to beat Czech champion Jan Koukal, while Pett meets local favourite Borja Golan, the third seed who won his all-Spanish match against Carlos Cortes in straight games.

All the seeded players triumphed in the women's quarter-finals where Alexandra Norman meets Birgit Coufal and Siyoli Waters faces Lisa Aitken for places in Saturday's final.
 

19-Oct, Round One:
Golan and Cornes guarantee
home interest in Santiago semis


While the home fans fully expected third seed Borja Golan to progress well into the tournament being hosted in his home town, the prospect of seeing him play Carlos Cornes for a place in the semi-finals will be an unexpected bonus.

Golan beat English qualifier Joe Lee in straight games while Cornes, the world #174, pulled off a significant upset in beating Hungary's Mark Krajcsak in five games.

Top seeds Adrian Grant and Steve Coppinger progressed without undue worries, although Grant dropped a game to Stephane Galifi while Coppinger raced past qualifier Fabien Verseille in just 12 minutes!

The French have something to celebrate however in Greg Marche's five-game defeat of fourth seed Chris Simpson. Marche now meets Czech star Jan Koukal in the quarters.

Further unexpected success came the way of English qualifier Olly Pett who beat compatriot Adrian Waller 3/1 to set up a meeting with Coppinger. Grant faces New Zealand's Campbell Grayson who recorded a fine win over Mathieu Castagnet, ranked 11 places higher than the Kiwi at #50.
