Rosner Rallies To Black Sea Success


Germany's second seed Simon Rosner thwarted favourite Chris Ryder's hopes of celebrating his 29th birthday with title success in the first PSA World Tour squash event to be held in Ukraine when he beat the Englishman in straight games in the climax of the $10,000 Zenit Black Sea Open at the Fitness Club Forma in Odessa.


Rosner, the world No45 from Paderborn, was in control throughout the 41-minute match, upsetting the world No37 from Wolverhampton 11-6, 11-5, 11-4 to record the second PSA Tour title triumph of his career.


The 21-year-old German will now head to the English club where Ryder was the Squash Professional to compete in the Wolverhampton Open.  Unseeded, Rosner will take on England's No6 seed Jonathan Kemp in the opening round of the $20,000 championship which is being staged at the Wolverhampton LT&SC from 3-6 September.


Top Seeds Ryder & Rosner To Contest Odessa Final


Top seeds Chris Ryder and Simon Rosner will contest the final of the first PSA World Tour squash event to be held in Ukraine after surviving hard-fought four-game semi-finals in the $10,000 Zenit Black Sea Open at the Fitness Club Forma in Odessa.


English event favourite Ryder recovered from a game down to beat fourth-seeded Frenchman Stephane Galifi 8-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-4 in 55 minutes.


The world No37 from Wolverhampton will be hoping to celebrate his 29th birthday in style in the 14th PSA Tour final of his career, but his first this year.


But younger Rosner, the No2 seed from Germany, took nine minutes longer to earn his place in his third Tour final in the past five months.  The 21-year-old from Paderborn battled for 64 minutes to overcome former Egyptian Amr Swelim, the third seed now playing under the Italian flag, 11-5, 9-11, 11-1, 11-9.


Ryder In Sight Of Birthday Treat In Ukraine


England's Chris Ryder is one match away from celebrating his 29th birthday in the final of the Zenit Black Sea Open after beating fifth-seeded German Jens Schoor in the quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at the Fitness Club Forma in Odessa - the first Tour event to be held in Ukraine.


The top seed from Wolverhampton took 40 minutes to overcome Schoor 12-10, 11-6, 11-6 and will now face Frenchman Stephane Galifi in the semi-finals.  The fourth seed from Aix-en-Provence beat Englishman Neil Hitchens 11-5, 11-2, 11-7.


Germany's second seed Simon Rosner reserved his place in the other semi-final after beating Finland's Henrik Mustonen 11-5, 11-0, 11-8.  The ninth-seeded Finn had claimed his unexpected place in the last eight after a marathon 82-minute victory over Canada's Andrew McDougall, the No6 seed, in the previous round.


Rosner, 21, from Paderborn, will face third seed Amr Swelim, the former Egyptian who is competing in his first event as an Italian.  The Cairo-based 25-year-old defeated Denmark's No7 seed Rasmus Nielsen 8-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-9.


Seeds Survive First Hurdles In Maiden PSA Event In Ukraine


All top 16 seeds safely came through the first round of the $10,000 Zenit Black Sea Open at the Fitness Club Forma in Odessa, the first PSA World Tour squash event to be held in Ukraine.


Ukraine qualifier Artem Shandybin put up the bravest resistance amongst the nine local players battling to claim a place in the second round.   The 28-year-old, who has represented his country in the last four European Team Championships, extended tenth seed Issa Kamara to four games but eventually went down 13-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-9 to the 30-year-old from Sierra Leone after 50 minutes.


Unseeded Englishman Olivier Pett took the opening game against ninth seed Henrik Mustonen, but the Finn came flying back to win 8-11, 11-8, 11-5, 11-6.


Germany's No2 seed Simon Rosner took just 20 minutes to down Ukrainian Kostyantyn Rybalchenko 11-9, 11-4, 11-7 and will now face Englishman Joel Hinds for a place in the quarter-finals.  Hinds, the 14th seed, earned his place in the second round with the minimum effort after being given a walkover by Ukraine's Dmytro Scherbakov.  The 32-year-old from Kiev injured his back in his earlier successful qualifying bid.
