2nd seed Englishman Jonathan Kemp (pic) destroyed all home hopes when he overcame US-boy Julian Illingworth in 5 tough games in the KIG Open final in Los Angeles. The world No22 was 2 games ahead before Illingworth, the world No34, clawed back to level the match. In the final game the Englishman had the better start and never allowed the American to come back. The 11-7, 11-8, 7-11, 7-11, 11-6 victory was Kemp’s 2nd win in 2011 and his 12th PSA Tour title in his career.
