Kandra Downs Hope Delierre to Capture Bankers Hall Club Pro Am Crown

Germany’s Raphael Kandra secured his first ever Bankers Hall Club Pro Am, PSA M10 title at the third attempt after a fine 3-0 victory over Canadian No.1 Shawn Delierre in the final.

Kandra, who lost out in both the 2013 and 2014 finals, was in imperious form in the build-up to his clash with Delierre and dropped a single game as he scythed through to the final. Delierre, meanwhile, had to negotiate an extremely difficult quarter-final clash against Eric Galvez and, after coming through it in five games, benefitted from an injury to top seed Shaun Le Roux in the last four to reach final.

World No.49 Kandra was incredibly precise and meticulous in his play in the opening exchanges of the encounter, keeping his error count low and his drives tight to build up a two-game advantage.

Backed on by the crowd on home soil, Delierre attempted to mount a fightback in the third and pushed Kandra all the way but ultimately fell short as 25-year-old Kandra prevailed courtesy of an 11-5, 11-5, 11-9 scoreline.

Kandra’s victory in Calgary has given him his 11th career PSA World Tour title and has also propelled him into the world’s top 50 players having been ranked at World No.51 before the title win.
 
 Seeds Sail Through In Bankers Hall Pro Am

#PSAWorldTour

There were no surprises in the first round of the Bankers Hall Club Pro Am, PSA M10 event as all eight seeded players progressed safely into the quarter-final.

The tie of the round was undoubtedly the thrilling encounter between Mexico’s Arturo Salazar and home player Andrew Schnell.

After a gruelling five-game battle, it was the former who came out on top, courtesy of an 11-5, 5-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-7 triumph to ensure that he will face third seed Ben Coleman in the next round after the Englishman defeated Matias Tuomi.

Top seed Shaun Le Roux, meanwhile, was given a bye and some much needed rest as he prepares to face Martin Knight in the last eight thanks to the New Zealander’s comfortable 3-0 win over Shahjahan Khan.

Elsewhere, Eric Galvez and Reiko Peter both gained straight games victories over Addeen Idrakie and Matthew Serediak, respectively. Galvez advances to Shawn Delierre, who beat James Huang.

Peter on the other hand will face Raphael Kandra after the German dispatched Chi Him Wong in four.
