Greg Lobban Runner Up at the $15K P.S.A. Victorian Open (Melbourne) 29th July-2nd Aug 2015

20150803_Greg-Lobban-SquashGreg Lobban was runner up to Ryan Cuskelly in the Victorian Open, PSA $15K title against in a dramatic final.

Ryan (No.1 seed and World Ranked No.35) swept past Mahesh Mangaonkar in the semi-final while Greg (No.4 seed and world Ranked 50) had a massive 5 game encounter to triumph against Steven Finitsis in his semi-final.

So in the final the first game was a tense affair with Cuskelly narrowly edging it on a tie-break. Game number two was even closer as both players traded a number of highly-charged blows with Cuskelly just edging it 13-11.

The third game again saw both players put each other through their paces, but Cuskelly eventually managed sneak home taking the match 11-9 and claiming his 13th PSA World Tour title in the process.

“It was a tough match,” said Cuskelly. “It was pretty physical and it was quite bouncy out there and, with the higher tin, difficult to really finish the ball. Greg was hitting the ball quite hard and trying to keep the ball really hot and I was trying to hit more winners so it was a real contrast of styles. I’ve just got a few minor things to change for next week and to step up for the $25k Australian Open.

Result – Final: Victorian Open 2015
[1] Ryan Cuskelly (AUS) bt [4] Greg Lobban (SCO) 3-0: 12-10, 13-11, 11-9 (65m)
