Diego Elias bags world tour hat-trick in Pittsburgh

Diego Elias’ 2023 continued in sytle at the weekend as he landed his third title of the year to remain undefeated on the world tour.

In capturing the Pittsburgh Open title with a 3-0 win over Marwan ElShorbagy, the Peruvian will also head to World No.2 in the PSA rankings.

Elias, who had already banked the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions title and the Sturbridge Capital Motor City Open crown this year, stretched his winning run to 13 matches and last lost at the Hong Kong Open in December.#

“It was a very tough match with Marwan – the start was very important I felt and I’m just very happy with the result.

“I think all the hard work before this tournament is paying off – I did a lot of work for this and I’m incredibly proud of myself for winning three tournaments in a row.

“I had to be very strong mentally at the start. I knew I was in for a long match, but I stayed solid and patient and at the end it paid off.”

Elias and ElShorbagy next head to Egypt for the Black Ball Squash Open, which takes place between Mar 2-7.Result: Pittsburgh Open Final
