Ryding Rides High With Winnipeg Windfall
More than 31 years after his birth in Winnipeg, national number one Graham Ryding celebrated his return to the west Canadian city by winning ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Open Squash Championship at the Winnipeg SRC.

Top seed Ryding, now based in Toronto, faced Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema, the second seed, in the climax of the $15,000 PSA Tour event.

Neither finalist had won a PSA Tour title in almost two years - and only two ranking positions separated the pair.

But after recovering from a game down, it was the Canadian world No22 who edged out Anjema, the world No24 from The Hague, to delight the local crowd by claiming his 6-11, 11-5, 11-6, 11-4 victory in 55 minutes.

The success marked the eighth PSA Tour title of Ryding's career - and the fifth earned on home soil!

Ryding & Anjema In Manitoba Final
Canadian number one Graham Ryding and Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema will meet in the final of the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Open Squash Championship after contrasting semi-final victories in the PSA Tour event at the Winnipeg SRC in the west Canadian city of Winnipeg.

Top seed Ryding, the 31-year-old world No22 from Toronto, defeated Edmonton-based compatriot Matthew Giuffre, the No4 seed, 11-8, 11-7, 11-7 in 42 minutes to reach the 17th PSA Tour final of his career.

Anjema, the second seed from The Hague, faced another Canadian - defending champion Shahier Razik, the third seed from Toronto.

The pair battled for 75 minutes before 24-year-old Anjema prevailed 11-4, 7-11, 11-10 (3-1), 11-4 to reach his 13th Tour final.

Neither finalist has won a PSA Tour title in almost two years - and only two ranking positions separate the pair.

Canadians Surge Through To Winnipeg Semis
Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema stands in the way of the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Open Squash Championship boasting an all-Canadian semi-final line-up in the west Canadian city of Winnipeg.

The second seed from The Hague reserved his place in the last four of the PSA Tour event at the Winnipeg SRC when he beat Egypt's No6 seed Omar Mosaad 11-5, 7-11, 11-9, 11-3.

Anjema will now face Shahier Razik, who survived a domestic duel with fifth seed Shawn Delierre. But the third seed from Toronto needed 75 minutes to extend his unbeaten record against his Montreal-based compatriot, eventually beating the fifth seed 10-11 (1-3), 11-10 (2-0), 11-6, 11-6.

The other match will feature a Toronto/Edmonton clash. Top seed Graham Ryding, from the Ontario capital, came from a game down to beat fellow Canadian David Phillips 10-11 (3-5), 11-4, 11-6, 11-4 in 61 minutes.

His opponent Matthew Giuffre, the No4 seed from Edmonton, ended the run of Khawaja Adil Maqbool - overcoming the Pakistan qualifier 11-8, 3-11, 11-9, 11-6 in 59 minutes.

Semi-final line-up:
[1] Graham Ryding (CAN) v [4] Matthew Giuffre (CAN)
[2] Laurens Jan Anjema (NED) v [3] Shahier Razik (CAN)

Maqbool A Surprise Winnipeg Winner
Pakistan's Khawaja Adil Maqbool caused the only upset on the opening day of action in the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Open Squash Championship when he beat Australia's No7 seed Steve Finitsis in the first round of the PSA Tour event at Winnipeg SRC in the west Canadian city of Winnipeg.

The Dubai-based qualifier twice came from behind to overcome the higher-ranked Australian 7-11, 11-4, 7-11, 11-10 (4-2), 11-10 (2-0) in 68 minutes to reach his first Tour quarter-final.

Maqbool, aged 18, will now face one of five Canadians who have made it through to the last eight. Matthew Giuffre, the No4 seed from Edmonton, despatched compatriot Andrew McDougall, a qualifier, 11-6, 11-5, 11-6 in just 29 minutes.

Canadian wildcard Josh Struthers, the Assistant Pro at the club, battled for 31 minutes with second seed Laurens Jan Anjema, but the Dutchman ultimately prevailed 11-3, 11-5, 11-2 to set up a quarter-final clash with Egypt's Omar Mosaad, the sixth seed.

Anjema is on course to meet top seed Graham Ryding in the final. Ryding, the Winnipeg-born world No22 from Toronto, defeated Czech number one Jan Koukal 11-5, 11-7, 11-3.

[1] Graham Ryding (CAN) v [8] David Phillips (CAN)
