Delierre Takes Saskatoon Title


Canadian number two seed Shawn Delierre defeated 2013 runner-up Martin Knight on home-soil to earn his second PSA World Tour title of 2014 at the Saskatoon Movember Boast, Challenger 10 tournament.

The pairing clashed in a magnificent match that saw 32-year-old Delierre roll back the years to beat Knight in straight sets and claim his third victory in a row against his opponent from New Zealand.

Number three seed Jamie Haycocks fell short of expectations when he went out to Andrew Schnell in the quarter-final. Schnell had already been through a gruelling five-game encounter with his brother Graeme in the first round but there were no signs of any tired legs as he put in a dogged performance against the Englishman.

The shock of the event was undoubtedly qualifier Youssef Solimanís victory over Dane Sharp in the quarter-final. Soliman, who had already shocked Canadian Michael McCue in the previous round, dropped the first game by a 11-9 scoreline but he had enough in his locker to turn the match on its head and take the next three games in a row.

His progress was cut short by Knight in the semi-final when the New Zealander gunned Soliman down in a 3-1 victory.

Knight was also number six seed Matthew Serediakís conqueror. The 30-year-old Canadian would have been hoping to progress to the latter stages of the event but was unfortunate to meet a dominant Knight in the quarter-finals.

Knight was brutal in his dismantling of Serediak and won it 11-9, 11-2 and 11-7 in the pairís first ever meeting on the PSA World Tour.

Carlos Cornes Ribadas, the only Spanish representative in the draw, made it to the second round courtesy of a 3-0 win over qualifier David Baillargeon but his progress was halted by Delierre en route to his tournament triumph.
