Simpson Celebrates Edmonton Success

Chris Simpson, the fourth seed from England, won the inaugural Servus Credit Union Edmonton Open after beating local hero Matthew Giuffre in the final of the $10,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton, in Alberta, Canada.

The 21-year-old from the English Channel Island of Guernsey reached the final after battling for five games to beat Gilly Lane, the No7 seed from the USA, 11-7, 5-11, 9-11, 11-4, 11-5.

After making semi-finals following an upset over third seed Ryan Cuskelly, local hero Giuffre continued his giant-killing run by ousting Hungarian favourite Mark Krajcsak in the other semi.

But Simpson was too strong for the sixth seed from Edmonton in the final, beating Giuffre 11-8, 11-9, 11-5 to win the second PSA Tour title of his life.

 

Local Hero Giuffre Makes Edmonton Semis

Canada's Matthew Giuffre delighted his home town fans in Edmonton when he claimed an unexpected place in the semi-finals of the Servus Credit Union Edmonton Open after upsetting third seed Ryan Cuskelly in the quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA Tour squash event at the city's Royal Glenora Club in Alberta, Canada.

The 26-year-old sixth seed from Edmonton beat the higher-ranked Australian 11-6, 13-11, 7-11, 11-7 and will now face favourite Mark Krajcsak for a place in the final.

Krajcsak, the Hungarian number one from Budapest, will be meeting his third successive Canadian after dismissing David Phillips, the fifth seed from Montreal, 11-7, 7-11, 9-11, 11-8, 13-11.

Seventh seed Gilly Lane also upset the form book by beating second-seeded Dutchman Dylan Bennett 11-6, 6-11, 10-12, 11-6, 11-8. The 23-year-old American from Philadelphia will now face fourth seed Chris Simpson after the Englishman defeated Ireland's John Rooney 12-10, 11-6, 11-4.
