Dunlop’s World No.9 Diego (The Peruvian Puma) Elias was the victor in five scintillating games against the World No.7 Paul Coll to lift the biggest PSA title of his career at the Troilus Canada Cup Squash title in Toronto, Canada.
It’s Elias’ first title since the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open back in 2016 and his fifth PSA title overall. The title came with perfect timing as Elias moved up to his highest ever ranking of World No.9 the week before.
The last time the two faced each other was as the U.S. Open when Coll defeated the Peruvian in straight-games, but it was sweet revenge for Elias who got the better of the two on this occasion as he twice held off a comeback from Coll to take home the PSA Silver title.
It turned out to be a thrilling 98-minute encounter, which saw the momentum swing between both players until the final game when Elias’ potential really shined through and he was able to close out an 11-8, 6-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-7 victory.
