Precocious Peruvian Diego Elias is one of the most gifted youngsters on the PSA World Tour and looks set for an exciting career.
After joining the PSA World Tour in May 2013, Elias would lift his first title a year later at the Regatas Resistencia Open-Tour De Las Americas where he stunned the crowd despite being a wildcard for the event. In doing so, Elias became the first Peruvian to win a PSA World Tour title.
Three months later he claimed the distinction of becoming the first Peruvian to become the World Junior Champion after he failed to drop a single game during the event and defeated Omar Elatmas in the final.
The following month he doubled his PSA World Tour title tally as he lifted the Salt Lake City Open and in December 2014 he broke the world's top 50.
He captured his first ever PSA M15 crown at the Costa Rica Open with a straight games win over Alan Clyne in the final in June 2015 to cap an excellent 2014/15 season for the teenage sensation.
Elias started the 2015/16 season with a succession of quarter-final finishes.
Elias then made the semi-final at the Netsuite Open where England’s James Willstrop got the better of him to make it through to the final.
The Peruvian went on to make the semi-final but fell to defeat against Ryan Cuskelly at the Harrow Charlottesville Open in 2016, before going on to make the final the following week at the Nash Cup, where Declan James edged him over a gruelling five-games.
However, Elias did go on to claim his own title, this time coming out on top at the Reidbuilt Homes Edmonton Open in 2016, beating Cesar Salazar. This was followed by two semi-final appearances at the Suburban Collection Motor City Open and Holtrand Open in 2017.
The 2017/18 season started well for the Peruvian Puma, as he reached the semi finals of the Oracle NetSuite Open. He then reached the same stage of the Channel VAS Championships the next month.
Elias then made it to the final of the Sporta Guatemala XI Torneo Internacional PSA 2018, where he was defeated by fellow South American, Miguel Rodriguez.
He was part of the Peruvian team that won the doubles at the South American Games, as well as winning the singles himself. Elias then also won the Pan American Championship as well.
The Peruvian made another appearances in the semis of the Channel VAS Championships in 2018, before reaching the same stage of the Qatar Classic.
He then finished runner-up to Karim Abdel Gawad in the Pakistan Open, before losing out to Mohamed Abouelghar in the final of the Motor City Open at the start of 2019.
