Kneipp Captures Canary Islands Crown
Joseph Kneipp has brought a PSA Tour title drought of almost seven years to an end by clinching the Prince Canary Islands Squash Open trophy in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Spain.

Runner-up in four Tour events since winning the Greenwich Open in January 2000, the 33-year-old Australian has had notable success on a doubles squash court this year winning the Mixed title in the WSF World Doubles Championships with compatriot Rachael Grinham in January, then the Commonwealth Games Mixed Doubles gold medal (with Rachael's sister Natalie Grinham) in Melbourne in March.

But the 33-year-old former world No10 from Brisbane was in fine form in Tenerife, where he reached the final without conceding a game.

The top seed's opponent in the $12,000 PSA Tour event's climax was England's Bradley Ball, the No2 seed celebrating his fourth PSA final appearance of the year.

Kneipp, currently ranked 39 in the world three places higher than Ball was too strong for the 30-year-old from Ipswich, winning 11-6, 11-9, 11-4 to secure the sixth Tour title of his career.

Perrin Punishes Gordon In Tenerife
Frenchman Yann Perrin became the only qualifier to reach the quarter-finals of the Prince Canary Islands Squash Open when he upset No7 seed Christopher Gordon in the first round of the PSA Tour event in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.

The 21-year-old from Marseille followed his good form earlier this month in Norway, where he reached the semi-finals of the Grays Oslo Open, by beating top USA player Gordon 11-8, 4-11, 11-8, 11-9.

Perrin now faces Scott Handley, the fourth seed from England who defeated local wild card player Pedro Espeleta 11-6, 11-10 (3-1), 11-6.

Top seed Joseph Kneipp, the former world No10 playing his first PSA Tour event since October, sailed into the last eight after beating Hungary's Andras Torok 11-5, 11-5, 11-1.

Quarter-final line-up:
[1] Joseph Kneipp (AUS) v [8] Sherif Moustafa Kamel (EGY)
[3] Amr Mansi (EGY) v [5] Kashif Shuja (NZL)
[4] Scott Handley (ENG) v [Q] Yann Perrin (FRA)
[2] Bradley Ball (ENG) v [6] Simon Rosner (GER)
