Final Semi Finals Quarter Finals


Coleman Claims Holtrand Title After Marathon 3-game Finale

Englandís Ben Coleman collected the seventh title of his career to date on the PSA World Tour after coming through an epic 130-minute three-game final with local favourite Shawn Delierre to clinch the 2016 Holtrand Open, PSA M10 title, in the Canadian town of Medicine Hat.

Just 24 hours after surviving an equally tough 98-minute semi-final encounter with compatriot Nathan Lake, in which he fought back from two-games down to prevail, Coleman demonstrated his new found confidence and maturity on court as he withstood everything Delierre could muster in what what a stop-start encounter.

The 24-year-old eventually secured the title courtesy of an 11-9, 13-11, 12-10 scoreline that saw him notch his first ever victory over the experienced Canadian campaigner, having lost out in their two previous PSA encounters, and boost his hopes of breaking into the top 50 in the rankings next month.
Holtrand Heroics From Peter And Lake

In the quarter-finals of the 2016 Holtrand Open Englandís Nathan Lake and Switzerlandís Reiko Peter came through a pair of gruelling and bruising five-game encounters with both men eventually emerging triumphant and booking a place in the semi-finals after more than 100 minutes on court.

Lake, the number six seed, came from 2-0 down against number four seed Martin Knight to record an impressive come-from-behind victory, playing with tenacity and desire as he rescued three straight games to come through after 105-minute to set up a last four showdown with top seeded Ben Coleman, who defeated Chi Him Wong 3-1.

Peter took the honour of the dayís longest match and an encounter that went in the opposite way to Lakeís. The Swiss number three seed got off to a strong start against Angus Gillams, taking a close opening game before doubling his advantage quickly thereafter. A tense third game went the way of the Englishman and he used momentum to level the scores at 2-2 and force a nervy decider.

With the duo trading points through it was Peter who eventually pulled away to take it 11-9 and move into the last four after a brutal 108 minutes, where he will now face Shawn Delierre after he came through 3-0 in an all-Canadian battle with Andrew Schnell.

Coleman Claims Holtrand Open Quarter-final Berth


Number one seed Ben Coleman safely secured his passage into the quarter-final of the Holtrand Open, PSA M10 event with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Matthew Serediak in the eventís opening round.

Coleman wrapped up the victory in just 25 minutes after a scintillating display that saw him dominate proceedings in Medicine Hat to wrap up a comfortable 11-6, 11-1, 11-5 triumph.

Facing Coleman in the next round is Hong Kongís Chi Him Wong who came through a hard-fought five-game encounter against number eight seed James Huang to make a strong start to his first PSA World Tour event of the year.

Home favourite Shawn Delierre, meanwhile, came from a game down to defeat fellow Canadian and qualifier Nicholas Sachvie 3-1. The number two seed looked to be heading to a shock defeat at the hands of a player ranked 131 places below him but the World No.57 but soon upped his game to take the victory in four.

Fifth seed Andrew Schnell will meet Delierre in an all-Canadian quarter-final clash after he eliminated wildcard Brock Janzer in straight game.

There were also comfortable victories for Martin Knight, Reiko Peter and Angus Gillams who defeated Bryan Byrne, Adam Murrills and Matias Tuomi, respectively.
