Diego Elias with the Canada Cup Squash trophy

Elias Defeats Coll to Take Canada Cup Title

Peru’s World No.9 Diego Elias prevailed in a five-game thriller with New Zealand’s World No.7 Paul Coll to lift his biggest PSA title at the Troilus Canada Cup Squash title in Toronto, Canada.

It’s the Peruvian’s first title since the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open when he defeated Mexico’s Cesar Salazar back in 2016 and his fifth PSA title overall.

The two players were facing each other for the first time since last year’s U.S. Open when Coll defeated the Peruvian in straight-games , but it was Elias who got the better of the Kiwi on this occasion as he twice held off a comeback from Coll to take home the PSA Silver title.

The two players went toe-to-toe throughout the gruelling 98-minute encounter, which saw the momentum swing between both players until the final game when Elias was able to close out an 11-8, 6-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-7 victory.

Result: Final
[4] Diego Elias (PER) bt [1] Paul Coll (NZL) 3-2: 11-8, 6-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-7 (98m)
