Delasaux Retains Saskatoon Boast Title

England's Laurence Delasaux successfully retained his Saskatoon Boast Open title in Canada after beating Mexican opponent Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira in the final of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event in Saskatoon in the province of Saskatchewan.

Both players patiently moved the other around the court with very little difference apparent. The Englishman gained some points early with his deceptive front-court trickle boast wrong-footing Ferreira several times.

"This set up some good length for winners later in the match," said event spokesman Brad Birnie. "Both players appeared tired for the first time in the tournament and that led to a few more mistakes than we are used to seeing from them."

With Delasaux up two games to one, Ferreira gained control of the fourth game when he reeled off four straight points at 4-4. Although he seemed to be tiring, Delasaux stormed back to 8-8 and then 9-9, before the seventh-seeded Mexican ran out the game. The momentum was swinging in Ferreira's favour - it seemed.

All credit to Delasaux, the No2 seed from Yorkshire who held it close in the fifth game until rattling off four straight points to get to 8-4. It seemed that Ferreira was tiring - something the Saskatoon crowd could never imagine from the ultra-fit, ultra-fast 28-year-old from Mexico City. The play became a little tighter at that point and both players kept up the pace - but it was Delasaux who ultimately prevailed 5-11, 11-9, 11-4, 9-11, 11-6 after 72 minutes.

The win takes 25-year-old Delasaux's career total to six Tour titles.

Baltazar Battles Into Saskatoon Final

Continuing the form which led him to the gold medal in the recent Panamerican Championships, Mexican Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira upset top seed Scott Arnold in the Saskatoon Boast Open to reach the final of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event in Saskatoon, Canada.

It was after beating his higher-ranked compatriot Eric Galvez in the quarter-finals that seventh seed Baltazar Ferreira earned the unexpected bid to face Australian favourite Arnold, the world No61, in the last four of the event in its ninth year at the YMCA of Saskatoon.

And the in-form 28-year-old from Mexico City despatched Arnold 11-9, 12-10, 11-5 to reach the 14th Tour final of his career - but his first for over a year.

His opponent will be Laurence Delasaux, the second seed from England who ended Canadian interest in the championship by beating Ottawa's fourth seed Robin Clarke 11-1, 11-8, 11-7.

The final will be Baltazar Ferreira and Delasaux's second meeting in north America this year. The pair lined up in the Atlanta Open quarter-finals in May, with the Englishman prevailing in four games before going on to reach the final - his only other PSA final appearance this year.

Seeds Survive Saskatoon Openers

Home interest in the semi-finals of the Saskatoon Boast Open is guaranteed after all eight seeds survived the opening round of the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its ninth year at the YMCA of Saskatoon in Saskatoon, Canada.

Andrew McDougall and Robin Clarke will line up in an all-Canadian quarter-final after straight games wins over fellow countrymen. Fifth seed McDougall beat qualifier Andrew Schnell 11-7, 12-10, 11-7, while Clarke, the No4 seed, beat unseeded Matthew Serediak 11-6, 11-6, 11-4.

Mexico's Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira made it through to the quarter-finals in his bid to reach the final for the second time since 2006. But the No7 seed battled for 95 minutes before overcoming Canadian qualifier Dane Sharp 13-11, 11-13, 8-11, 11-3, 11-3.

The newly-crowned Panamerican champion will now face fellow Mexican Eric Galvez. The third seed, the Panamerican champion in 2009, beat Canadian Tyler Hamilton 11-3, 11-4, 11-3.
