Player Info

Miguel Angel Rodriguez is known for being the first South American ever to make the top 10 in the world rankings. ‘The Colombian Cannonball’ has particularly excelled in his home country, winning the Colombian Open on three occasions in 2008, 2010 and 2014 and finishing runner up in the competition in 2006 and again six years later in 2012. In September 2013, Rodriguez became the highest-ranked South American of all time, exceeding Fernando Usandizaga in a year that also saw him emerge victorious at the Bluenose Classic and achieve a bronze medal finish at the World Games in Cali. 2014 was a successful year for the Colombian. After an impressive semi-final finish at the Canary Wharf Open, he captured the Rancho Open title along with the Colombian Open in August. The diminutive star broke into the top ten world rankings in January 2015 and made history again that month when he became the first ever South American to reach the quarter-finals of a PSA World Series event at the Tournament of Champions before winning the biggest title of his career to date, the 2015 Motor City Open, just one week later.
