Kemp Crowned KIG Champion

England's Jonathan Kemp celebrated a dramatic title triumph in the KIG Open in Los Angeles where he beat home hope Julian Illingworth in a five-game final of the PSA World Tour International 25 event in its second year at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

The second seed from Halifax disappointed the local crowd in the semi-finals when he ended the brave run of club coach Stefan Casteleyn, the 37-year-old former world No7 from Belgium who reached the last four after upsetting Egypt's fourth seed Omar Abdel Aziz in the previous round.

And unseeded Julian Illingworth reached the 13th PSA World Tour final of his career when he despatched Australian Ryan Cuskelly in the other semi. The New Yorker had made his breakthrough in the opening round where he ousted Shahier Razik, the top seed from Canada.

Left-hander Kemp, the world No22, opened up a two-game lead in the final before Illingworth, ranked 12 places lower, battled back to draw level.

But Kemp stuck to his guns and reclaimed control of proceedings before closing out the match 11-7, 11-8, 7-11, 7-11, 11-6.

The triumph marked the 12th PSA Tour title of Kemp's career - and his third in the USA.

Casteleyn KIG Campaign Lives Longer In LA

Belgian veteran Stefan Casteleyn maintained his giant-killing run on his home courts at the Los Angeles Athletic Club when he scored his second upset in the KIG Open to earn a surprise place in the semi-finals of the PSA World Tour International 25 event in Los Angeles.

Tournament organiser Casteleyn, a 37-year-old former world No7, recovered from 2/1 down to upset fourth-seeded Egyptian Omar Abdel Aziz 11-8, 1-11, 8-11, 11-5, 11-8.

Casteleyn, ranked 391 in the world, will now take on England's Jonathan Kemp, the only seed left in the draw.

Kemp, the second seed from Halifax, also ousted an Egyptian, qualifier Amr Khaled Khalifa, 11-2, 11-9, 8-11, 11-6.

Julian Illingworth leads home interest in the other semi-final where he will meet fellow unseeded opponent Ryan Cuskelly.

New Yorker Illingworth followed his dismissal of top-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik in the first round by defeating England's Chris Simpson 7-11, 11-6, 11-4, 11-3.

Australian Cuskelly earned his place in the last four after removing Egypt's No3 seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda 14-12, 11-4, 11-9.

Julian Jettisons Shahier In LA Shock

US squash star Julian Illingworth provided unexpected hopes for domestic success in the KIG Open in Los Angeles when he ousted top-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik in the opening round of the PSA World Tour International 25 event in its second year at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

The unseeded New Yorker, winner of a record six US national titles, clambered back from 2/1 down to upset Razik, the world No26 from Toronto, 11-6, 5-11, 8-11, 11-8, 11-4.

Illingworth, ranked 34 in the world, now faces England's Chris Simpson for a place in the last four. Simpson, the Guernsey-born world No43, defeated Frenchman Yann Perrin 11-6, 11-7, 11-1.

Tournament organiser Stefan Casteleyn showed that he has not lost the touch which took him to a world ranking high of 7 in 1999. The 37-year-old Belgian despatched New Zealander Campbell Grayson 11-9, 11-9, 11-9 to set up a quarter-final clash with Omar Abdel Aziz, the fourth seed from Egypt.
