Sporta International 2016
16-21 May, Guatemala, $50k

21-May, Final:
It's Golan in Guatemala

Second seeded Spaniard Borja Golan beat Mexico's Cesar Salazar in straight games to capture the Sporta Open title in Guatemala to claim his 31st and biggest PSA title.

20-May, Semis:
Salazar and Golan deny Egyptians in semis

Another all-Egyptian final was on the cards in Guatemala, but semi-final victories from Mexico's Cesar Salazar and Spain's Borja Golan put paid to that.

Salazar, the eighth seed, came from two games down to deny sixth seed Zahed Mohamed, while second seed Golan eased past third-seeded Mazen Heaham in straight games.

19-May, Quarters:
Seeds assert in Sporta Quarters

All four quarter-finals went to the seedings in Guatemala, but none of the eventual semi-finalists had easy passages.

Having beaten top seed Marwan Elshorbagy in the opening round, Peru's Diego Elias couldn't follow up as he lost out in four games to eighth-seeded Mexican Cesar Salazar, and in the semi-finals he'll meet Zahed Mohamed, the sixth seed who needed all five games to get past Alfredo Avila.

Mazen Hesham was another Egyptian five-game winner as the third seed came from 2-1 down to beat Steve Coppinger, setting up a semi-final with second seed Borja Golan, winner of a tough four-game encounter with Omar Abdel Meguid.

18-May, Round One:
Houston finalists beaten in round one

A dramatic first round in Guatemala saw the finalists of last week's $50k Houston Open both beaten - top seed Marwan Elshorbagy, champion in Texas, fell in straight games to world junior champion Diego Elias, while Mohamed Abouelghar, seeded four here, lost out in four games to Mexico's Alfredo Avila.

The remaining six seeds all won through to the last eight, although second seeded Spaniard Borja Golan needed all five games to get past qualifier Arturo Salazar.
