Golan Wins In Winnipeg
Spanish favourite Borja Golan needed almost an hour to fight off the challenge of Malaysian Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan in the final of the Winnipeg Building & Decorating Manitoba Open to win the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event in its fifth year at Winnipeg Squash Racquet Club in Winnipeg in the Canadian province of Manitoba.

Adnan, the 21-year-old sixth seed competing in his first event in North America, caused a significant upset in the semi-finals when he removed second-seeded Canadian Shawn Delierre - thus leaving the final without local interest for the first time in its five years as a PSA Tour event.

But Golan, the 25-year-old world No24 from Santiago DC - ranked 67 places higher than his opponent - rushed to a two-game lead over the Malaysian before Adnan fought back to take the third game.

It was all to no avail, however, as the Spaniard reclaimed control of the encounter to close out the match 11-3, 11-6, 7-11, 11-6.

The triumph marks Golan's first Tour title of the year - but the 16th of his career, from 20 final appearances.

Cesar Salazar Silenced In Winnipeg Quarters
Cesar Salazar's
giant-killing run in the Winnipeg Building & Decorating Manitoba Open came to an end when the Mexican was beaten by Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan in the quarter-finals of the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event in its fifth year at Winnipeg Squash Racquet Club in Winnipeg in the Canadian province of Manitoba.

Salazar, a qualifier, upset fellow Mexican Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira, the No3 seed, in the opening round. But sixth-seeded Malaysian Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan was too strong for the 20-year-old, winning 11-3, 11-5, 10-11 (1-3), 11-4 to reach the semi-finals.

Adnan will face local hero Shawn Delierre after the second seed from Montreal defeated fifth-seeded American Christopher Gordon 11-3, 11-9, 11-10 (2-0).

The other semi-final will be the clash predicted by the seedings, between favourite Borja Golan and fourth seed Yasir Butt. Spaniard Golan had an easy ride through to the last four when unseeded Pakistani Majid Khan retired injured midway through their second game.

Butt, 19, from
Pakistan, beat Ryan Donegan, the No7 seed from the USA, 11-7, 11-5, 11-8.

Salazars Suffer Mixed Fortunes In Manitoba
Mexican twins Arturo Salazar and Cesar Salazar suffered surprising mixed fortunes in the first round of the Winnipeg Building & Decorating Manitoba Open, the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event in its fifth year at Winnipeg Squash Racquet Club in Winnipeg in the Canadian province of Manitoba.

Cesar, a qualifier, upset fellow Mexican Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira, the No3 seed, 11-9, 11-8, 7-11, 11-9 and will now meet Malaysia's sixth seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan for a place in the semi-finals.

But Arturo Salazar, the eighth seed who is also 20 and also from
San Luis Potosi, crashed out in a four-game upset to Pakistan's Majid Khan. Peshawar-based Khan, the 24-year-old who reached last week's Bankers Hall Club Open in Vancouver as a qualifier, maintained his fine form to beat his Mexican opponent 11-7, 11-10 (2-0), 2-11, 11-8.

Khan now comes up against Borja Golan, the top seed from Spain.
