ROAD Town, Tortola, VI – Defending Champion, Welshman Peter Creed won his second BVI Open Squash PSA Challenger 5 Championship with a 3-0 win over Jesus Camacho at the Tortola Sports Club on Saturday June 27, 2015.

Creed, who overcame Camacho, 11-3, 11-4, 11-3, was pretty much in command throughout, going 7-0 up in the first and moving the Mexican around the court with great lengths and control.

Camacho had taken a beating in both his quarter-final game and semi-final victory against Joe Chapman and was looking a little tired as the match went on, but he hung in there with a lot of spirit. He took 2-0 leads in both the second and third games but Creed continued to pile on the pressure and in the end it was all done in three.

"I have been on the road for seven weeks now so what a great way to end the season, winning my second BVI Open. Boat trip tomorrow to look forward to and relax!" commented Creed.

On Friday, Creed had overcome the tournament surprise, Cameron Stafford, 11-9, 11-8, 11-7.

Stafford hit a lot of outrageous volley-nicks, many off serve, to stay in the game but Creed was steady and patient throughout and never looked in danger, his speed and mobility allowing him to cruise through to victory in three straight games.

"[I] played within myself today and happy to be in the final again tomorrow," Creed had commented.

Camacho then lost the first game of his semi against Chapman before running out a winner: 11-7, 7-11, 7-11, 3-11. The match was a physical encounter, with the first game lasting almost 30 minutes, which appeared to drain Chapman and Camacho looked the fresher, taking the next three games to advance to his first PSA final.

“A long hard game and [am] pleased to make the final against Peter tomorrow,” Camacho had remarked.
