Grayson Dispatches Lake to Triumph in Manitoba Open

New Zealandís Campbell Grayson avenged his final defeat in last yearís Qualico Manitoba Open, PSA M15 tournament by beating Englandís Nathan Lake in the final of the 2016 instalment to lift the crown.

The experienced World No.44 came into the final with fresh legs after his semi-final opponent, Chris Hanson, retired, while Lake achieved a highly impressive victory over second seed Karim Ali Fathi, an opponent ranked 34 places above him in the world rankings.

Grayson eased into a one-game lead after dominating the íTí and gave Lake very little to work with as his consistency, built up over a 13-year career, came to the fore.

A determined Lake refused to give up though and he made the most of his superb ability at the front of the court to level proceedings courtesy of an 11-8 triumph in the second game.

Fatigue appeared to be setting in to Lakeís legs in the third as Grayson powered back ahead and, despite an attempted comeback from Lake in the fourth and final game, Grayson held firm to record an 11-8, 8-11, 11-3, 11-9 victory.
 
Delierre And Schnell Lead The Way On Home Soil In Canada

#PSAWorldTour

Canadian duo Shawn Delierre and Andrew Schnell, the countryís number one and two ranked players, respectively, were cheered on by a partizan home crowd in Winnipeg, Canada as they both achieved first round victories in the Qualico Manitoba Open, PSA M15 tournament.

World No.53 Delierre went up against Nigeriaís Babatunde Ajagbe in the opening round and secured comfortable passage into the quarter-final after taking the victory in straight games courtesy of an 11-5, 13-11, 11-7 triumph.

The 33-year-oldís reward is a quarter-final clash against Nathan Lake after the Englishman defeated wildcard Matthew Serediak 3-0.

Schnell, on the other hand, was made to work hard for his victory as he overturned a 2-1 deficit against experienced New Zealander Martin Knight to set up a next round meeting against second seed Karim Ali Fathi who disposed of Canadian qualifier David Baillargeon.

Elsewhere, tournament favourite Alfredo Avila came out on top of his encounter with Eric Galvez in an all-Mexican affair and will face Chris Hanson in a last-eight showdown after the American defeated Joe Chapman.

Christopher Gordon and Campbell Grayson will meet in the roundís other fixture thanks to respective wins over Nick Sachvie and Leandro Romiglio.
