Razik Stops Qualifier Khan In Calgary Final
Canadian number one and tournament top seed Shahier Razik won the Talisman Energy Bankers Hall Open title after ending the giant-killing run of Pakistan qualifier Majid Khan in the final of the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event at Bankers Hall Club in Calgary.

It took Tour veteran Razik 76 minutes to overcome the 24-year-old from Peshawar 11-9, 9-11, 11-8, 11-10 (2-0) to pocket the $2,600 first place prize.

"It was a tougher match than I would have expected from him," said Razik, who lost last week's final at the Comfort Inn Open in
Vancouver.  "He got better and better as the match wore on.  He has a very clashing style and a choppy rhythm to his play."

After losing the second game, Razik felt he needed to make some adjustments.

"I had to slow the pace down," said the 30-year-old world No21 from
Toronto.  "But in the end the entire match just went back and forth.  At the end he made some crucial mistakes and I was able to capitalise on them."

The victory gives Razik the 18th PSA Tour title of his career, in his 27th final.

Qualifiers Khan & Salazar Secure Semi-Final Slots In Calgary
After taking out high-seeded opponents in the first round, qualifiers Arturo Salazar and Majid Khan continued their giant-killing run in the Talisman Energy Bankers Hall Club Squash Open to secure semi-final slots in the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event at Bankers Hall Club in
Calgary, Canada.

Salazar, a 20-year-old Mexican from San Luis Potosi, took out Egypt's No7 seed Amr Swelim 11-9, 7-11, 11-4, 11-4 in 51 minutes to set up a meeting with local favourite Shahier Razik. The 30-year-old from Toronto despatched Bernardo Samper, the sixth seed from Colombia, 11-3, 11-6, 11-2.

Majid Khan defeated unseeded US player Christopher Gordon, ranked 23 places higher in the world, 11-7, 11-7, 11-9 in 41 minutes - and will now face a second Mexican in the last four.

Perhaps energized by his fellow countryman's win, eighth seed Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira upset 2006 champion Matthew Giuffre, the fourth seed from Canada, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, 11-10 (3-1).
