REPORTS

Vargas & Ayman Book World Champs Spots


Kenzy Ayman and Juan Camilo Vargas with the Bermuda Open trophies

Colombiaís Juan Camilo Vargas and Egyptís Kenzy Ayman have become the last two players to secure their places at the 2021-2022 PSA World Championships, after the pair won their respective finals at the Bermuda Open on Saturday evening.

For the Colombian, this was a second attempt to make the World Championships, after he lost out in the final of the Val de Reuil Normandie earlier this season. After losing out in five there, Vargas had to fight to win in five at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association, overcoming Scotlandís Rory Stewart for the victory.

After winning the first game on a tie-break 14-12, the tournamentís No.6 seed then fell behind, after Stewart won both the second and third games quite comfortably. Vargas fought for his place in Cairo, though, with an 11-9 scoreline in the fourth, before taking the final game easily, winning it 11-3 to book his spot at the sportís premiere event.

In the womenís draw, Egyptís Kenzy Ayman completed an incredible week, as she downed top seed Georgia Adderley in four games to secure a place at the PSA World Championships. Prior to the final, Ayman had already gotten the better of No.2 seed Nadia Pfister and No.3 seed Karina Tyma.

She lost the first game in the final, as the Scot came flying out of the blocks, but the young Egyptian was able to regroup, coming back to win the next three games to win in four, taking both the second and fourth by 11-9 scorelines, to book her spot in Cairo.
 
Finals Set At Last World Champs Qualifier

The finals are set at the last qualifying event for the 2021-2022 PSA World Championships, with Scottish involvement set to be in both finals of the Bermuda Open, which will take place on Saturday, May 7 at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association.

Top seed Georgia Adderley had to go the distance to make it through her all-British semi-final contest with Englandís Grace Gear, holding off a late charge from the tournamentís No.4 seed. After losing the first, Adderley fought back to go 2-1 up, mainly thanks to a second game tie-break victory, but Gear fought back to win the fourth, sending the match into a decider. A tight fifth went the way of the Scot 11-9, who eventually claimed the win after 77 minutes of action, advancing to the final.

Adderley will face Egyptís Kenzy Ayman in the final on Saturday, after she claimed yet another scalp in the tournament. A day after beating No.2 seed Nadia Pfister, the young Egyptian overcame the challenge of the drawís No.3 seed, Polandís Karina Tyma. The first two games were comfortable, with Aymaan dropping just nine points in total, but the third went deep into a tie-break. The Egyptian eventually won it 16-14 to book her spot in the final.

There will also be Scottish representation in the menís final in Bermuda as well, with No.4 seed Rory Stewart spending more than 80 minutes on court during his semi-final contest with Colombiaís Ronald Palomino. His contest went in exactly the same way as his compatriots, coming from behind to lead 2-1, before his opponent won the fourth game. The deciding game in Stewartís match was slightly more comfortable though, as he took it 11-7 to advance to yet another final on Tour this season.

He will now face another Colombian in the final on Saturday, after Juan Camilo Vargas, the No.6 seed for the competition, downed Egyptís Seif Shenawy in straight games. The Egyptian had already taken out the top seed en route to the semis, but Vargas was too strong, dropping just 15 points across the contest to book his place in the final.

The finals will take place at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association on Saturday, May 7, with the winners guaranteeing themselves a place at the 2021-2022 PSA World Championships in Cairo.
Shenawy And Vargas Gatecrash Semis

The Bermuda Open, the fourth and final qualifying event for the 2021-2022 PSA World Championships, continued on Thursday evening at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association, with a trio of players causing upsets to make it into the last four of the competition.

After taking down the top seed in the second round, Egyptís Seif Shenawy came up against Englishman Robert Downer for a place in the last four of the Challenger 10 level competition. Downer had won their most recent meeting, at the University of Birmingham Open four weeks ago, but this one went the way of the Egyptian, thanks to a 13-11 scoreline in the third, as he claimed a straight games victory.

Shenawy will now face Colombiaís Juan Camilo Vargas, after the World No.83 caused another upset to defeat Canadian No.1, and the tournamentís No.3 seed, David Baillargeon. Vargas found himself 2-1 down in the contest, but fought back to win the last two games quite comfortably, coming through after 66 minutes of action to make the semi-finals.

The other menís match in the last four of the Challenger 10 level tournament will see another Colombian in action, in Ronald Palomino, as he takes on Scotlandís No.4 seed Rory Stewart for a place in the final on Saturday.

There was just the one surprise result in the womenís draw, as another Egyptian, in No.5 seed Kenzy Ayman, downed No.2 seed Nadia Pfister in straight games. Despite sitting eleven places below the Swiss No.2 in the World Rankings, Ayman won in less than half an hour to book her place in the semi-finals of the tournament.

She will now face No.3 seed, and Polish No.1, Karina Tyma, after a straight games victory over Alex Haydon saw the Pole advance to the last four. The other womenís semi-final will see top seed Georgia Adderley take on Englandís Grace Gear in an all-British battle in Bermuda.

The semis of the Bermuda Open will take place on Friday, May 6 at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association, with places in Saturdayís finals up for grabs at the Challenger 10 level competition.
Shenawy And Taylor Take Out Top Two Seeds

The Bermuda Open continued at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association, and there were two big surprises, as the top two seeds from the menís event were knocked out of the tournament, after great performances from Egyptís Seif Shenawy and Welshman Owain Taylor.

After winning his opening day clash, the Egyptian came up the tournamentís top seed, and World No.53, Faraz Khan in the second round in Bermuda and after two games nothing could separate the two of them. Both men then had their chances in a lengthy third game tie-break, but it was eventually Shenawy that won it 15-13, and that was crucial as he kept the momentum into the fourth to take the 3-1 victory, and book his place in the last eight of the tournament.

He will now face Englandís Robert Downer for the second time in four weeks, after a tense battle at the University of Birmingham Open, the most recent qualifying event for the PSA World Championships. The Englishman overcame Australian No.1 Joseph White in four games to make his way into the quarter finals.

In the bottom half of the draw, Welshman Owain Taylor ousted the eventís No.2 seed, Christopher Gordon, in a five-game battle. Taylor, who was in Eindhooven last week with his country for the European Team Squash Championships, fell behind twice in his second round contest with the American, but fought back on both occasions, before going on to win the fifth, and advance to the last eight.

He will face No.7 seed Ronald Palomino in the quarters after the Colombian got the better of Canadian Cory McCartney on Wednesday evening.

There were no surprises in the womenís event, as all eight seeds safely made it through to the quarter finals of the fourth World Championships qualifying event. Only Polandís Karina Tyma and Switzerlandís Nadia Pfister went past three games in their opening matches of the competition, with both winning in four, 3-1.

The quarter finals of the Bermuda Open take place on Thursday, May 5, with the last eight battling it out for places in the semi-finals at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association.
 
Action Underway In Bermuda

The Bermuda Open, the last of four qualifying tournaments for the 2021-2022 PSA World Championships, got underway at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association on Tuesday evening, with players aiming to take the last chance to make it through to the sportís premiere event.

The Challenger 10 level tournament kicked off yesterday, with a pair of Bermudans making it through to the second round of the womenís event on home soil. Just three womenís matches were played due to some late withdrawals, but Emma Keane and Hailey Moss will carry home hopes through to the last 16.

Both beat compatriots, with Keane overcoming Shannon Mann in straight games, while Hailey Moss had to go the distance to defeat Juliette Ferrari-McComb, withstanding comebacks from her opponent to eventually make it through the deciding game, winning in five. Moss will now take on top seed Georgia Adderley, with Keane facing No.8 seed Diana Garcia in the second round.

Just two matches in the first round of the menís event went past three games, with Welshman Owain Taylor and Guatemalaís Ricardo Toscano both winning 3-1. The pair overcame Canadaís Liam Marrison and Maximilien Godbout, respectively, to make it through to the last 16.

The seeded players will come into the draw in the second round, with the likes of the American duo of Faraz Khan and Christopher Gordon both in action.Canadian No.1 David Baillargeon and Scotlandís Rory Stewart make up the rest of the top four seeds in the menís draw. The action continues on Wednesday, May 4, with 16 matches taking place at the Bermuda Squash Rackets Association.

The Challenger 10 level tournament will be the fourth qualifying tournament for the World Champs, following the Odense Open, Val de Reuil Normandie and the University of Birmingham Open.

Hana Moataz will be the top seed for the womenís event, and will be aiming to win in back-to-back weeks after winning the biggest title of her career at the weekend, when she claimed the Richmond Open title in Virginia, USA. Scotlandís Georgia Adderley, Switzerlandís Nadia Pfister and Polish No.1 Karina Tyma will make up the rest of the top four seeds.

USAís World No.52 Faraz Khan will lead the menís draw, with compatriot Christopher Gordon and Canadaís David Baillargeon as his nearest competitors in terms of seeding. Scotlandís Rory Stewart, who comes in from a great week at the European Team Championships in the Netherlands, will be one to watch. Englandís Robert Downer and Tom Walsh, along with the Colombian pairing of Juan Camilo Vargas and Ronald Palomino, will also be among the top eight seeds.

A total of ten Bermudan players will be in action for the Challenger 10 level tournament, with Emma Keane, Juliette Ferrari-McComb, Isabella White, Hailey Moss and Shannon Mann in action in the womenís event.
