Alexander Storms to Second Tour Title In A Week

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 10 Prairie Autohaus Saskatoon Boast Open, Saskatoon, Canada

Australian Zac Alexander collected his second PSA World Tour title in a week when he dismissed Italian Amr Ramsy Swelim in the final of the Prairie Autohaus Saskatoon Boast Open in Canada, the PSA Challenger 10 squash event in its tenth year at the YMCA in Saskatoon.

The two players met in last week's quarter-finals of the RhodySquash RI Open en-route to the Brisbane-born 22-year-old's title success in Rhode Island, USA.

Unseeded Swelim, who reached the final after upsetting second seed Gonzalo Miranda in the quarter-finals, made many more mistakes in this match than in any earlier match. While he made good shot-making decisions when Alexander afforded him any opportunities, the Cairo-based 27-year-old failed to execute his shots time and again.

Swelim's frequent tins gave Alexander, who made far fewer mistakes, the first two games. Alexander seemed to take a break in the third, while Swelim, at least temporarily, found his game.

The crucial start of the fourth game saw steady pressure from Alexander, while Swelim again struggled to find his form. The top-seeded Australian remained strong, with very few unforced errors, and finished off the match 11-5, 11-6, 5-11, 11-8 with relative ease.

The win marks the 11th PSA Tour title of Alexander's career - and his fourth of the year.

Swelim Sweeps Into Saskatoon Semis

Unseeded Italian Amr Ramsy Swelim swept into the semi-finals of the Prairie Autohaus Saskatoon Boast Open in Canada when he upset second seed Gonzalo Miranda in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event in its tenth year at the YMCA in Saskatoon.

It took just 33 minutes for the Cairo-based 27-year-old to dismiss Miranda, the world No115 from Argentina, 11-9, 11-8, 11-5.

"Swelim was all smiles after the match and noted his game plan was to slow down the game and not play the fast retrieving game the South American players loved to play," said event spokesman Daryl Foreman. "He gave full marks to Miranda and advised he was a talented and improving player."

Swelim will now face fellow non-seed Dane Sharp, the 26-year-old from Toronto who ensured Canadian interest in the lower half of the draw by beating Malaysian qualifier Kam Hing Choong 11-9, 11-8, 8-11, 11-5 in 47 minutes.

Fourth seed Andrew Schnell leads local interest in the top half of the draw following his 11-7, 9-11, 11-4, 11-7 win over fellow countryman Thomas Brinkman.

Calgary-born Schnell will line up against Zac Alexander after the top seed from Australia defeated Spanish qualifier Alejandro Garbi Caro 9-11, 11-7, 11-6, 11-4.

Choong Chops Scott In Saskatoon Upset

Malaysian qualifier Kam Hing Choong produced the biggest upset on the opening day of action in the Prairie Autohaus Saskatoon Boast Open in Canada when he downed third seed Eddie Charlton to claim an unexpected place in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event in its tenth year at the YMCA in Saskatoon.

From two games down, the 22-year-old from Ipoh Perak clawed his way back into the game to draw level. After an accidental collision at six-all in the decider, both took a three-minute injury break - but after only two further rallies, Charlton was forced to retire - giving Choong the match 8-11, 6-11, 11-6, 11-7, 7-6 (ret.) after 55 minutes.

Alejandro Garbi Caro became the second qualifier to survive the first round when he outlasted France's Geoffrey Demont 11-5, 11-7, 8-11, 9-11, 11-5 in 74 minutes.

The 28-year-old Spaniard progresses to meet Zac Alexander. The top-seeded Australian defeated local hope Matthew Serediak, a 27-year-old from Toronto, 12-10, 11-8, 11-6 in 34 minutes.

But Canadian interest is assured through to the semi-finals after fourth seed Andrew Schnell beat Australian Scott Arnold 6-11, 11-9, 11-2, 11-5. The Calgary-born 20-year-old will now meet fellow countryman Thomas Brinkman, a 6-11, 10-12, 14-12, 11-6, 11-4 winner over Scottish qualifier Jamie Macaulay.
