Final

Damming Claims Maiden Tour Title

Rowan Damming

Dutchman Rowan Damming secured his maiden Tour title after beating top seed Andres Herrera in the final of the QPCC Premiere PSA Squash Tournament.

Damming, who took the World Junior Championship crown earlier this year, came into the Challenger 5 level competition in Trinidad and Tobago as the No.3 seed, and received a bye through the opening day’s action in Port of Spain.

He then had to go the distance in his opening clash of the tournament, beating Germany’s Jan Wipperfurth in straight games to move through to the quarter finals. The Dutchman then also went to five in the last eight as well. Damming defeated New Zealand’s No.6 seed Anthony Lepper in a 71-minute clash, taking the fifth game 11-4.

The semi-finals saw the World No.174 take on Frenchman Maceo Levy, and he fell two games behind in their clash on Friday. However, the Dutchman fought back strongly to send the match into a deciding game, one that went all the way to a tie-break. Eventually, Damming claimed a 16-14 win in the fifth to advance to the final in Port of Spain.

The final saw Damming come up against top seed Andres Herrera, and the Colombian won the first game 11-3. Damming fought back to win the second game 11-9, before then taking the third on a tie-break 14-12. He kept that momentum running to claim the fourth game 11-8, winning in four to secure his maiden Tour title.
 
Semi Finals

Herrera and Damming Win Monster Five-Gamers

It was a lengthy semi-finals day, with Colombia’s Andres Herrera and Dutchman Rowan Damming both going the distance to make it through to the final in Trinidad and Tobago.

Herrera, the tournament’s top seed, fell two games behind to No.4 seed Elijah Thomas in his last four clash. The Kiwi won both of the opening two games on tie-breaks, taking the first 13-11, before then doubling his advantage with a 12-10 vii tory in the second game.

The Colombian was able to get a foothold in the contest in the third game though, winning it 11-7, before then levelling the match after dropping just a couple of points in the fourth. The deciding game was tight, but it was Herrera that took the win 11-8, claiming victory in the tie after a whopping 111 minutes of action.

The top seed will now face World Junior Champion Rowan Damming in the final on Sunday. The Dutchman defeated France’s Maceo Levy in a five-game battle to make the final, having also been two games down.

Levy started strongly, and raced into that two-game lead, but Damming claimed a tight third game 11-9 to turn the momentum in his favour. He then won the fourth 11-4, sending the match into a decider. That final game was a lengthy one, with 30 points being played. Both men had match balls, but it was Damming that eventually got over the line, winning 16-14 to secure his spot in the final.

The QPCC Premiere PSA Squash Tournament comes to its conclusion on Sunday, November 6, with Colombia’s Andres Herrera and Dutchman Rowan Damming facing off for the title. You can keep up to date with live scores from the PSA Live Scores page.

Levy Gatecrashes Semi-Finals

Maceo Levy celebrates his quarter final win in Port of Spain

Just six points were dropped by the Frenchman in the last couple of games, as he won in four games to advance to the semis.

He will now face World Junior Champion Rowan Damming, after the Dutchman beat New Zealand’s Anthony Lepper. He lost the first game 11-8, but then won the next two games on tie-breaks, with scorelines of 13-11 and 14-12. Lepper won the fourth to send the match into a deciding game, but it was the Dutchman that came through to take victory after 71 minutes of action.

The Challenger 5 event, which is the first to take place in Trinidad and Tobago, saw all of the eight seeded players make it through to the quarter finals, but Herrera had to fight from 2-1 down to take the win in his opening contest of the week.

The Colombian took on Mexico’s Leo Vargas on Wednesday evening, and won the first game comfortably 11-5. He then lost the next two games, both by 11-9 scorelines, before having to fight back to win the fourth and extend the match. Herrera went on to win the fifth and final game 11-9, sealing the deal after a whopping 97 minutes of action, and to move through to the quarter finals in Port of Spain.

Dutchman Rowan Damming, the current World Junior Champion, also had to come through a five-gamer, despite going two games up. However, German Jan Wipperfurth fought back to win the next two games and send the match to a decider.

Elsewhere, the Kiwi duo of Anthony Lepper and Elijah Thomas will be in the last eight, along with England’s Noah Meredith, Canada’s Cory McCartney, Frenchman Maceo Levy and Mexico’s Carlos Vargas.
