Germany’s Simon Rosner celebrated the sixth PSA World Tour title of his career after triumphing in 4 games in the final of the Santiago Open in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

After making his breakthrough in the semi-finals, where he stunned local hero and defending champion Borja Golan in a 73-minute marathon, it took the world No18 from Paderborn a minute longer to subdue Australian Cameron Pilley in the climax, where Rosner held his nerve to close out the match 8-11, 11-5, 11-8, 16-14 to win his first Tour title of the year.

“I’m just so happy to have won my sixth PSA title,” said the jubilant German afterwards. “I have been working really hard and that paid off finally.

“I would also really like to congratulate my opponent and roomie for a great match and a fair final,” added the 24-year-old.
