Expressing his condolences, PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough shared, “It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Rodolfo Vega. “Rodolfo was a talented player who had been playing some of the best squash of his career in 2023, winning multiple titles in Mexico and enjoying a career-high ranking just a few short months ago.
