Walker Wins Montreal Title

 

England's top seed Alister Walker denied local fans a home victory in the Midtown Sanctuaire Open when he beat second-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik in the final of the inaugural $21,000 PSA Tour squash event at Midtown Le Sporting Club Sanctuaire in Montreal, Canada.

 

Toronto-based Razik was vying for a second straight Tour win after winning his first tournament in over a year in last week's National Capital Open in Maryland.  And the world No33 put up a strong fight - especially following his 103-minute marathon victory over North American rival Julian Illingworth, the fourth seed from the USA, in the previous round.

 

But Walker, the Botswana-born world No18, had to battle for 76 minutes before overcoming Razik 11-9, 6-11, 11-9, 11-5.

 

The triumph marks Walker's third career PSA Tour title - but the 26-year-old from Leeds in Yorkshire's first for almost four years.

 

Walker & Kemp Set Up All-English Semi In Montreal

 

An English finalist in the Midtown Sanctuaire Open is guaranteed after compatriots Alister Walker and Jonathan Kemp battled to straight games wins in the quarter-finals of the inaugural $21,000 PSA Tour squash event at Midtown Le Sporting Club Sanctuaire in Montreal, Canada.

 

In the swiftest victory of the day, third seed Kemp defeated Frenchman Julien Balbo 11-4, 11-7, 11-4. 

 

The 27-year-old left-hander from Halifax will now face fellow Yorkshire-based player Alister Walker – the top seed from Leeds who need 54 minutes to overcome Czech Republic number one Jan Koukal, the fifth seed, 11-7, 13-11, 11-5.

 

The other semi will be an all-North American affair between four-time US champion Julian Illingworth and second-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik.  But third seed Illingworth toiled for 77 minutes to put paid to an all-Canadian semi when he beat local hero Shawn Delierre, the eighth seed from Montreal, 11-5, 12-14, 11-9, 11-6.

 

Razik maintained the winning form which saw him win last week’s National Capital Open in the USA – where he beat Illingworth in the final.  The 31-year-old from Toronto beat Hungary’s Mark Krajcsak 11-9, 11-4, 11-5.

 

Delierre Delights Midtown Fans In Montreal

 

Local star Shawn Delierre delighted the crowd at the Midtown Sanctuaire Open when he held off the challenge of Spaniard David Vidal in the first round of the inaugural $21,000 PSA Tour squash event at Midtown Le Sporting Club Sanctuaire in Montreal, Canada.

 

The 26-year-old from Montreal, seeded eight, beat the 30-year-old qualifier 11-7, 11-9, 11-7 in 45 minutes to set up a quarter-final clash with North American rival Julian Illingworth.

 

The fourth seed from the USA, fresh from his appearance in the final of last week's National Capital Open in Maryland, also prevailed in straight games, beating Australian Wade Johnstone 11-7, 11-7, 11-5.

 

Shahier Razik, winner of the Maryland PSA Tour title, will also provide Canadian interest in the last eight in Montreal.  The second seed needed 54 minutes to overcome South African Stephen Coppinger 11-9, 11-5, 11-7 - and will now face sixth-seeded Hungarian Mark Krajcsak for a place in the semi-finals.
