Kashif Captures Auckland Crown
Top seed Kashif Shuja captured the Auckland Open Squash Championship title in New Zealand after beating Australia's Mike Corren in the final of the PSA Tour event at the North Shore Squash Club in Auckland.

The kiwi number one has claimed the maximum PSA world ranking points on offer after surviving a hard-fought four game victory over surprise opponent, third seed Mike Corren.

Shuja won the first two games, but dropped the third before bouncing back to claim the fourth and seal his 11-9, 11-10 (3-1), 5-11, 11-10 (4-2) victory in 54 minutes.

The success marked the Pakistan-born 28-year-old's sixth PSA Tour title, and his fifth on his adopted home soil.

It was a case of second time unlucky for Corren, however.  The 33-year-old, who is now based at the North Shore club and won the Australian National title for the first time this year, was also runner-up in the 2006 Auckland Open.

Corren Stretched By Compatriot Again In Auckland
For the second time in 24 hours, Australian Mike Corren was forced to battle back from two games down to overcome a compatriot in the Auckland Open Squash Championship at the North Shore Squash Club in Auckland, New Zealand.

Now through to the final of the PSA Tour event for the second year in a row, third seed Corren upset second-seeded fellow Aussie Steve Finitsis 3-11, 11-9, 4-11, 11-10 (3-1), 11-7 in today's (Saturday) gruelling 73-minute semi-final encounter.

Corren, now in his 22nd Tour final, also won his quarter-final in five, taking 82 minutes to dispose of another Aussie, Cameron White.

The 33-year-old will now need to dig deep into his energy reserves for Sunday's title decider against top seed Kashif Shuja. The kiwi number one is through to the 13th PSA Tour final of his career after beating fourth-seeded Australian Ryan Cuskelly 11-4, 11-9, 9-11, 11-7 in 64 minutes.


Corren Tested In Auckland Open Quarters
The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the Auckland Open Squash Championship - but third-seeded Australian Mike Corren was taken the full distance before surviving today's (Friday) quarter-finals of the PSA Tour event at the North Shore Squash Club in Auckland, New Zealand.

The 33-year-old New Zealand-based Aussie was given a run for his money by compatriot Aussie Cameron White, twice coming from behind before eventually prevailing 11-3 in the deciding fifth game of an epic 82-minute battle.

Top seed Kashif Shuja is safely through to the last four after beating fellow kiwi Campbell Grayson in four games, while third seed Ryan Cuskelly also won in four against fellow Australian Matthew Karwalski.

Second seed Steve Finitsis continued the trend of winning in four, beating compatriot Luke Margan in a 42-minute scrap.

 

Karwalski Ousts Wong In Auckland Upset

Australian qualifier Matthew Karwalski caused the biggest upset in the opening round of the Auckland Open Squash Championship when he beat fifth seed Wai Hang Wong in the PSA Tour event at the North Shore Squash Club in Auckland, New Zealand.

 

The 21-year-old from New South Wales despatched the former Hong Kong champion 11-4, 11-2, 10-11 (1-3), 11-9 in 46 minutes - and will now face fourth-seeded compatriot Ryan Cuskelly in the quarter-finals.

 

The only other match to go against the form books saw seventh seeded New Zealander Martin Knight make an early exit from the draw when he was beaten 11-1, 11-2, 11-6 in just 26 minutes by unseeded Australian Cameron White - a win which guarantees an Australian in Sunday's final.

 

Top seed Kashif Shuja advanced untroubled into the second round, disposing of fellow kiwi Jared Conning in straight games, while second-seeded Australian Steve Finitsis also won 3/0 against New Zealand's Chris Lloyd.

 

Conning Lands Kashif In Auckland Comeback

Local star Jared Conning caused the biggest upset in the qualifying finals for the Auckland Open at the North Shore Squash Club in Auckland, New Zealand.

 

The 25-year-old from Auckland is through to the main draw of the PSA Tour event, after beating Australian Steven Robinson 11-7, 11-10 (2-0), 11-2. His reward for his first appearance in a Tour event for two years is a first round clash against the top seed, New Zealand number one Kashif Shuja.

 

Fellow kiwi Chris Lloyd has also qualified for the main draw, after a thrilling 8-11, 11-9, 11-8, 6-11, 11-6 victory over England's Will Jones. Lloyd will face North Shore-based Australian Mike Corren - runner-up in the event last year - in the first round.

 

The other two qualifying spots have gone to Australians Matthew Karwalski and Jacob Lohrisch.
