Goodlife Open, Ottawa, Canada, PSA M10

Ford Lifts Goodlife Open Crown

Englandís Tom Ford produced a majestic display to see off Geoffrey Demont 3-1 in the final of the Goodlife Open, PSA M10 tournament and secure his second PSA World Tour title of 2015.

Ford came into the final full of confidence after shocking home favourite Shawn Delierre in the previous round while Demont had been in fine form in the build up to the showpiece event, dropping just a solitary game as he romped to the final in Ottawa, Canada.

Despite his semi-final fixture against Delierre going the full distance to five games, Ford came out fighting in the early stages of the match and went two games ahead against an out-of-sorts looking Demont.

The Frenchman made amends though in the third as a number of attacking shots enabled him to rise to a 9-2 lead. Ford clawed his way back into the game but Demont saw it out courtesy of some stunning rallies that saw him clinch it with a tight backhand drop shot.

However, the effort of taking the third game appeared to take its toll on the 24-year-old who succumbed to an 11-2, 11-6, 9-11, 11-8 defeat in Fordís favour.

ďThe previous match [against Delierre] took a lot out of me emotionally and Iím really happy to win today,Ē said Ford.

 

Gruelling Matches Par For The Course At Goodlife Open

The Goodlife Open, PSA M10 main draw begins on Thursday November 5 with a veritable feast of action set to descend on Ottawa, Canada.

Three-time winner Shawn Delierre is the hot favourite as he makes his first appearance at this event since 2012 where he defeated Martin Knight in the final to capture the title.

The 33-year-old Canadian, who also won this tournament in 2006 and 2007, has been in decent form throughout 2015, winning the PSA Regatas Resistencia Open five months ago in addition to reaching the final of the Paraguay Open.

Delierre will be eager to add to the 15 PSA World Tour titles he has picked up so far in his extensive career and the World No.56 opens up against compatriot David Baillargeon in round one.

Reiko Peter has won a trio of PSA World Tour titles this year and represents Delierreís closest challenger to the crown.

The number two seed was eliminated from the first round of the Welaptega Bluenose Squash Classic in his last PSA World Tour appearance but will be determined to bounce back in strong fashion in Canada. Peter faces Lyell Fuller in the first round.

Englandís Tom Ford is also in the mix as he searches for his second PSA World Tour title of the year. Worcester-born Ford captured the Marlborough Open in January but failed to make it out of of qualifying at the recent CLIC Sargent St Georgeís Hill Open.

Ford lines up against Egyptís Ahmed Effat Ashoush in the opening round and could face number five seed Joe Chapman in a tasty looking quarter-final clash.

Frenchman Geoffrey Demont has plummeted down the World Rankings in recent months but showed that he was approaching something resembling his best form when he achieved a semi-final spot at the LOC Charing Cross Classic earlier on in the month. With a solitary PSA World Tour title to his name, Demont has shown that he certainly has a degree of title-winning pedigree but he will have to be at his very best to challenge in Ottawa. Jesus Camacho is his opponent in round one.
