Koukal Captures Ontario Crown

Czech squash star Jan Koukal held off a 70-minute challenge from local qualifier Shawn Delierre in the final of the inaugural PSA Northern Ontario Championship to win the $10,000 PSA World Tour title at Sudbury YMCA in Sudbury, Canada.

It was one match too far for Delierre, the 27-year-old from Montreal who made the main draw after qualifying, then strung together a series of upsets before reaching the final after surviving a marathon 140-minute five-game semi against his top-seeded compatriot Shahier Razik.

Delierre twice led in the final, but second seed Koukal held his nerve to close out the match 9-11, 11-3, 5-11, 11-1, 11-7 - thereby celebrating his fourth Tour final appearance in North America this year with his second title triumph.

"I felt OK about the match today, but I lost control," explained Delierre later. "I had to wait for his errors and he wasn't making very many. I kept stringing myself along and I wasn't hitting my best. It was tough, very tough."

Jan Koukal, the 26-year-old world No63 from Prague, now has 13 PSA World Tour titles to his name, since winning in his first at the Czech Open in February 2004.

Delierre Ensures Home Finalist In Northern Ontario Championship

Qualifier Shawn Delierre ensured domestic interest in the final of the inaugural PSA Northern Ontario Championship after claiming a surprise place in the semi-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at Sudbury YMCA in Sudbury, Canada.

After undergoing leg surgery last year, the 27-year-old from Montreal is enjoying his fourth successive success as a qualifier in a North American Tour event over the past six weeks. Delierre made his Sudbury breakthrough in the first round, when he upset England's fourth seed James Snell.

Then, in the quarter-final, the former world No40 defeated unseeded compatriot Matthew Serediak 11-5, 11-5, 11-4 in 27 minutes to set up a semi-final clash with another Canadian Shahier Razik.

Top seed Razik, the world No25 from Toronto, defeated top-ranked Austrian Aqeel Rehman 12-10, 11-3, 11-1.

The other semi-final will be an Australian/Czech affair between third-seeded Queenslander Zac Alexander and second seed Jan Koukal. Alexander beat sixth-seeded Canadian Andrew McDougall 11-2, 11-7, 11-3 while the Czech number one defeated English qualifier Olivier Pett 12-10, 11-9, 11-5.
