Weekend Roundup: Romiglio and Galvez Claim First Titles of 2017

#PSAWorldTour

Argentina’s World No.93 Leandro Romiglio and Mexico’s World No.114 Eriz Galvez captured their first PSA World Tour titles of 2017 after they managed respective triumphs at the Guilfoyle Financial PSA Squash Classic and the Mount Royal University Open.

Romiglio, the 26-year-old from Mar del Plata, was aiming to lift his first Tour title outside of his native country since April last year, and eased through to the final after dispatching Joshua Hollings, Kale Wilson and David Baillargeon without dropping a game.

And his dominance continued into the final as a composed performance saw him take out World No.87 Geoffrey Demont in straight games to pick up his fourth PSA World Tour title.
