Weekend Roundup: Salazar and Parker Secure Titles in Winnipeg and Winchester

Mexico’s World No.58 Arturo Salazar and England’s World No.140 George Parker triumphed at the weekend as they claimed the Manitoba Open and Hampshire Open, respectively.

Salazar, 29 and seeded third for the Manitoba Open in Winnipeg, defeated England’s Ben Coleman by an 11-6, 11-7, 13-11 margin to capture his 11th PSA World Tour title.

Parker, meanwhile, captured his first Tour title in 13 months – and his third overall – by beating fellow Englishman Chris Fuller in a gruelling 79-minute five-game battle, despite starting the tournament unseeded.

The 20-year-old from Leicester also defeated Fuller’s brother, Mark, en route to the final of the inaugural Hampshire Open.
