Illingworth Nets Third Tour Title In Rhode Island


US number one Julian Illingworth romped to the third PSA World Tour squash title of his career when he beat Egyptian Amr Swelim in the final of the Rhode Island Open, the $10,000 event at St George's School in Middletown, Rhode Island, in the USA.


The 25-year-old top seed from New York survived a tough five-game test in the semi-finals where he faced another Egyptian, the former world No13 Mohammed Abbas.


But second seed Swelim was also taken the full distance in the other semi - where he took 62 minutes to overcome Ireland's No4 seed Liam Kenny.


But world No30 Illingworth was fully in control in the climax, beating Swelim 11-8, 11-9, 11-7 in 49 minutes to consolidate his status as the USA's most successful squash player of all-time.

Mixed Fortunes For Malaysians In Rhode Island


Malaysians experienced mixed fortunes in the Rhode Island Open as unseeded Kamran Khan and Elvinn Keo succeeded - but sixth seed Muhd Asyraf Azan failed to reach the quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at St George's School in Middletown, Rhode Island, in the USA.


Khan battled for 82 minutes to overcome compatriot Ivan Yuen, the No8 seed, 11-7, 11-9, 7-11, 11-8.  The 19-year-old from Kuala Lumpur will now face top seed Julian Illingworth, the 25-year-old world No30 from New York who is bidding to become the first US winner of this Tour event in its second year.


Unseeded Indian Siddharth Suchde, a Harvard graduate now based in the UK, excelled on his return to North America by upsetting Muhd Asyraf Azan 12-10, 11-7, 7-11, 8-11, 11-6 in a 110-minute marathon.


The 24-year-old from Mumbai will now face Irishman Liam Kenny, the fourth seed.


But the highest seed to exit was South Africa's Regardt Schonborn, the fifth seed, who went down 12-14, 11-8, 11-7, 11-9 to Malaysian Elvinn Keo.
