Simpson Celebrates Vancouver Victory

Chris Simpson celebrated his first PSA World Tour squash title in almost two years when he beat fellow Englishman James Snell in the final of the $10,000 BC Honda Dealers Open at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.

The 23-year-old top seed from the Channel Island of Guernsey recovered from a game down to beat surprise opponent Snell, the fourth seed from Exeter, 10-12, 11-3, 11-6, 11-8 in 64 minutes.

"Chris played steady and strong and in the end prevailed over James who put up a valiant effort after having a fantastic week of squash," said Tournament organiser Shauna Flath.

Simpson - whose previous Tour title triumph was also in Canada, at the Edmonton Open in December 2008 - was delighted with his latest success: "I am very pleased with how I played. It has been a long time since I have been the No1 seed and I have been nervous all week, as crazy as that sounds.

"To finish it off from the very first match of the tournament and to close it out is a fantastic feeling," added Simpson, who now has three PSA Tour titles to his credit.

Snell Sets Up Surprise All-English Final In Vancouver

A surprise all-English clash will bring the BC Honda Dealers Open to a climax in Canada after James Snell upset second seed Jan Koukal in the semi-finals of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.

Fourth seed Snell recorded his biggest career win when he beat Czech number one Koukal, the world No53 from Prague, 11-4, 11-5, 8-11, 11-9 in 58 minutes.

"It's my best win to date," said the 22-year-old from Exeter, ranked 91 in the world "I went in relaxed and the key for me was to keep up the pace of being fast and not letting the games go at a slow pace."

The former British U13 champion will celebrate his fifth PSA Tour final appearance against top seed Chris Simpson, the world No51 from the Channel Island of Guernsey who fended off the challenge of fellow Englishman Joe Lee to beat the third seed 11-6, 11-7, 11-8.

"I am looking forward to tomorrow against Chris," added Snell. "I lost to him at the British Nationals, so I am looking forward to the match tomorrow."

Tournament organiser Shauna Flath was delighted to see Simpson make the final for the first time: "Chris has been here every year we host a PSA and this was our club's fifth PSA. It is fantastic to see how he has grown as a player and a splendid match with compatriot and fourth seed James Snell is in prospect."

Simpson, now based in Harrogate in Yorkshire, is marking his third Tour final appearance. The 23-year-old boasts a 100% record in his previous finals - but Vancouver will be his first for almost two years.

Englishmen Excel In Vancouver

Top seed Chris Simpson led a trio of Englishmen through to the semi-finals of the BC Honda Dealers Open, the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver, Canada.

The Guernsey-born 23-year-old beat fifth-seeded compatriot Lewis Walters 11-7, 9-11, 11-5, 11-8 to set up an all-English semi-final against Joe Lee, the No3 seed.

Lee, runner-up in last week's GoodLife Open in Ottawa, defeated one of three Canadians to lose out at the quarter-final stage. The 21-year-old from Surrey beat Vancouver-based qualifier Justin Todd 11-1, 11-9, 14-12.

It is Czech number one Jan Koukal who stands in the way of an all-English final. The second seed from Prague - who is competing in his 18th Tour event this year - will face Devon 22-year-old James Snell after beating Canada's 8th seed Tyler Hamilton 11-9, 11-6, 11-5.

Snell, the fourth seed, reached the semi-finals after resisting a determined fightback from Andrew McDougall - eventually beating the No6 seed from Calgary 11-5, 11-7, 3-11, 7-11, 11-4 in 57 minutes.
