Life Time Chicago Open 2016
18-23 Oct, Chicago, Usa, $15k



23-Oct, Final:
Grayson comeback claims title in Chicago

Campbell Grayson won his first Life Time Chicago Open - his 11th career PSA title - in a five set thriller as he came from two games down to beat top seed Greg Lobban.

After being on court three hours more than Lobban for the event the odds were not good. After a gruelling five setter with Henrik Mustonen lasting 1h 40 min and a semi final five setter with Rafael Kandra which also went the full distance he started the match not as sharp as the previous matches.

Greg won the first two games 11/5 and 11/6 and the third was very close as Campbell dug in deep for every point. At 9-all Lobban ran for a ball and landed awkwardly on his knee and had to take a 3 minute injury break.

Campbell went on to win the game 11-9 and maintained his composure to win the fourth 11-7.

In the fifth Camp raced to a 7-3 lead and one could see Lobban was unable to lunge and move as quick as he was in the first two and a half games. Campbell closed out the match 11-4 and was still in disbelief that he won.

He will go to Cairo with great confidence. For Greg he will have to make the decision if he will go to Cairo as he was in serious pain after the match.

Tour Director Andre Maur said the quality of squash played on the weekend was amazing and world class. Congrats to Campbell on a fantastic tournament and winning the 2016 Life Time Chicago Open. A special thanks to Tournament Director Franz Schwerer on putting a brilliant tournament together.
