Top Four Seeds Into Goiania Semis

The top four seeds made it through to the semi-finals of the Goiania Powerade Open in Brazil after surviving contrasting quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Flamboyant Shopping Centre in Goiania.

Hopes for local success were kept firmly alive when top seed Rafael F Alarcon booked his place in the last four without lifting a racket. After producing a notable upset in the previous round, English qualifier Steven London was unable take his Goiania bid any further, and conceded the match to Alarcon due to an injury.

Brazilian Alarcon, the world No52 from Sao Paulo, will now face Yann Perrin for a place in the final after the third-seeded Frenchman despatched Paraguay's Esteban Casarino 8-11, 11-4, 11-4, 11-6.

Malaysia's Kamran Khan took more than an hour to overcome South African Clinton Leeuw 12-10, 11-7, 5-11, 11-6.

The fourth seed moves forward to line up against No2 seed Campbell Grayson. The 25-year-old New Zealander brushed aside Argentina qualifier Hernan D'Arcangelo 11-6, 11-1, 11-4.

Rafa Rallies Into Goiania Quarters

Players from eight different nations survived the opening round of the Goiania Powerade Open in Brazil, leaving top seed Rafael F Alarcon to carry home hopes exclusively into the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Flamboyant Shopping Centre in Goiania.

But the world No52 from Sao Paulo was taken the full distance by unseeded Maltese opponent Bradley Hindle before squeezing through 11-8, 6-11, 9-11, 11-5, 11-9 after 65 minutes.

Alarcon, seeded to win his 11th PSA Tour title on home soil, will now face Englishman Steven London, a qualifier from London who upset Mexican Fernando Lopez 12-10, 11-7, 11-6.

Argentina's Hernan D'Arcangelo became the second qualifier to earn a place in the last eight when he defeated Brazilian and fellow qualifier Ronivaldo Duarte 11-7, 11-3, 7-11, 11-1.

D'Arcangelo, competing on the PSA Tour for only the second time, will now line up against second seed Campbell Grayson after the New Zealander knocked out Englishman Adam Murrills 11-2, 11-6, 11-9.
