Cuskelly Crowned BC Honda Open Champion

Australian Ryan Cuskelly celebrated the biggest win of his career at the BC Honda Open in Canada when he defeated Canadian opponent Shahier Razik in the final of the established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.

Cuskelly was leading 11-5, 11-9, 7-7 when Razik, the Canadian number one, walked off court after receiving a conduct stroke against him.

The 24-year-old from New South Wales had struggled through the quarter-finals against young Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar but was in superb touch in the semi-finals and final to claim the seventh title of his career, but the first since he took out the China Open two years ago.

"It was a tough week, especially in the quarter-finals where I was down 8-3 in the fifth against Abouelghar and I came back and won 12-10 to take the match," Cuskelly said.

"I just kept digging in and it paid off.

"I played very well in the semis against Joe Lee of England and I played my best squash in the final. It was unfortunate to finish the way it did in the third," added the New York-based Aussie.

"Razik got a couple of bad calls then a conduct stroke and then walked off court, so it was a pretty weird ending."

Razik Rallies To Second Vancouver Final

Four years after becoming the last home winner of the title, Shahier Razik is back in the final of the BC Honda Open in Canada after beating unseeded Dane Rasmus Nielsen in the semi-finals of the established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.

The 33-year-old from Toronto eased into the 36th PSA World Tour final of his career after overcoming Nielsen 11-5, 11-6, 11-5 in 34 minutes - ending the brave run of the 28-year-old from Odense who made his breakthrough in the first round where he upset third seed Jan Koukal.

Top seed Razik, the reigning Canadian national champion celebrating his second Tour final appearance of the year, will face Ryan Cuskelly, the No2 seed from Australia.

New York-based Cuskelly, from New South Wales, battled for 54 minutes to defeat England's No4 seed Joe Lee 11-6, 12-10, 11-3.

The Australian is marking the 11th Tour final of his career.

Nielsen Knocks Out Koukal In Vancouver

Denmark's Rasmus Nielsen claimed an unexpected place in the quarter-finals of the BC Honda Open in Canada when he crushed third seed Jan Koukal in the opening round of the established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.

It was an out-of-sorts Koukal, the Czech number one who reached the semi-finals in 2010, who went down 11-2, 11-2, 11-3 to the Odense-based Dane in just 19 minutes.

Nielsen progresses to meet Germany's Jens Schoor, an 11-7, 11-1, 11-7 winner over French qualifier Geoffrey Demont.

But Canada are assured of interest in the semi-finals after both Shahier Razik and Dane Sharp recorded first round wins. Top seed Razik, the world No31 from Toronto, beat fellow countryman Thomas Brinkman 11-4, 11-3, 11-4, while Sharp, also from Toronto, despatched Canadian qualifier Fred Reid 11-5, 11-8, 6-11, 11-9. The pair will meet in the quarter-finals.

Fourth seed Joe Lee came through in a tight fourth game against promising Canadian Andrew Schnell and was relieved that he closed it out.

"Andrew got some of the momentum but I was happy to close it out and didn't have to go to five," said the 22-year-old Englishman after his 11-8, 11-5, 8-11, 12-10 victory in 50 minutes.

Tournament organiser Shauna Flath added: "Andrew is coming up and started to get the belief in his match and put in a great effort. There's lots to come from him as far as the future of Canadian squash."

Mohamed Abouelghar became the youngest player to make the last eight when he beat England's Charles Sharpes. The 18-year-old Egyptian entertained the crowd with his 4-11, 11-9, 12-10, 11-7 win over 19-year-old Sharpes.

"Charles put in a fantastic effort but just fell short in the end," said Flath.
