Daryl wins in Scotland but injured Barker out of Swedish Open
The second game was a carbon copy, Le Roux again edged ahead for 10-8, Selby again taking the next four for another 12-10!
Le Roux came out firing in the third, was quickly 6-1 up and with Selby seemingly saving some energy it was quickly 10-1, then 11-3 to reduce the deficit.
It was pretty much the same story in the fourth, Le Roux again forging ahead, 7-3 and at 10-5 we were surely in for a decider. Not to be though, as Selby mounted another comeback, this time seven points in a row with Le Roux unable to find a finish. Selby’s precision was too much in the end as the South African maybe tried a little too hard to find a winner, clipping the tin three times before Selby finally took the match with a dropshot leaving his opponent stranded.
“I’ve certainly saved a few game balls this weekend,” said a delighted winner. “I’m very happy to win my fifth title here, I haven’t won a PSA title since 2012 so it’s nice to get a trophy on the shelf early in the year, hopefully there’s more to come!”
