El Halaby Battles To Baltimore Success
Egypt's Yasser El Halaby captured the Baltimore Squash Cup in a thrilling final of the $10,000 PSA Tour event at Baltimore Country Club in Baltimore, USA.

It was a topsy-turvy match, and one which held the capacity crowd enthralled.   After losing the first game to USA's Julian Illingworth, the third-seeded Egyptian came storming back to take a 2/1 lead against an increasingly despondent looking second seed.

However, the American would not give up without a fight - and the fourth game turned into a classic. Towards the end of the game, there were some superb rallies, with both players attacking and retrieving in equal measure.

Illingworth won the game, but the effort took its toll and El Halaby always looked the stronger in the fifth, deservedly winning the title 7-11, 11-1, 11-2, 9-11, 11-4 in 70 minutes, having beaten both the top seeds.

The triumph marks the third Tour title of El Halaby's career - and his third of the year.

Seeds Progress In
Baltimore
The top four seeds progressed through to the semi-finals of the Baltimore Squash Cup, but they were made to work for their places in the last four of the $10,000 PSA Tour event at Baltimore Country Club in Baltimore, USA.

South African qualifiers Jacques Swanepoel and Regardt Schonborn both tested their higher-ranked opponents.  Schonborn and Bernardo Samper, the fourth seed from
Colombia, were team-mates while studying together at Trinity - and their familiarity with each others games was obvious.

There were some excellent points and the match was played in a superb spirit but Samper emerged the victor 11-7, 11-9, 10-11 (0-2), 11-6 in 55 minutes - and now faces US champion Julian Illingworth for a place in the final.
