Binnie happy with second pro title

first_imgKINGSTON: Jamaica and Caribbean men’s singles champion, Chris Binnie, recently won his second international Professional Squash Association (PSA) title, when he beat Jamaica?s number two ranked player, Lewis Walters, in an all-Jamaica final at the Securian Indian Summer Tournament in Minnesota, United States. Binnie, who defeated Walters in July to win his sixth All Jamaica title, knew his teammate would be looking for revenge when the two faced off again. The first game was a pitch battle, with Binnie managing to take the early lead 12-10. The Jamaican and Caribbean number one then consolidated his advantage by winning the second game 11-6. However, Walters regrouped to pull one back, when he won the third game 8-11. The rally sparked an all-out war in the fourth game, but Binnie prevailed 13-11 to take the title. “Both of us were pushing hard so it was a tough final and although it?s always hard to beat a teammate and friend I?m happy I was able to win it,” Binnie said. The victory gave the six-time Jamaica and Caribbean champion his second title since joining the squash pro tour in 2012. “I’ve done a great deal of training and this win shows that my game is coming along and I am making good strides. Now, I’m looking forward to my next tournaments and taking this momentum into future events,” he stated.last_img read more
