Razik Keeps Edmonton Title In Canadian Hands

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 15 ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Top seed Shahier Razik held off a determined challenge from Malaysian Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan in the final of the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton in the Canadian province of Alberta to keep the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash title in home hands.

It was in the semi-finals that Razik, the Canadian national champion from Toronto, defeated fellow countryman Shawn Delierre, defending champion, in straight games.

In the other semi, Adnan saw off Ryan Cuskelly - but it took 88 minutes for the No2 seed from Kuala Lumpur to see off the third-seeded Australian 11-7, 11-9, 8-11, 12-10.

But the Malaysian show no ill effects in the final as he took the opening game - and then, after Razik drew level, the third for the loss of just two points.

However world No31 Razik, no stranger to lengthy battles on a squash court, dug deep to reel in the next two games to record a popular 5-11, 11-9, 2-11, 11-9, 11-6 title victory over the world No37 after 76 minutes.

"Tonight's match was by far the best final that we've ever witnessed here at the Edmonton Open," said a jubilant Jeff Williams, the club's Head Squash Professional.

The win is Razik's second PSA Tour title of the year - and the 22nd of his career.

Battles Royal At Royal Glenora

The first round of the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open in Canada produced a string of marathon encounters - with four matches going the full distance and three lasting well over an hour as players battled for places in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its fourth year at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton, Alberta.

Top-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik had one of the toughest matches - fighting back from two games down to overcome Australian qualifier Scott Arnold 8-11, 3-11, 11-5, 11-5, 11-5 in 70 minutes.

A home semi-finalist is now assured as Toronto-based world No31 Razik now faces fellow countryman Dane Sharp. By contrast, the 26-year-old from Toronto only needed 35 minutes to see off Canadian qualifier Thomas Brinkman 12-10, 11-5, 11-7.

Shawn Delierre, the fourth seed from Canada whom Razik is expected to meet in the last four round, survived the longest match en-route to his 11-9, 11-13, 11-6, 11-6 victory over compatriot David Letourneau in 89 minutes.

And it took third-seeded Australian Ryan Cuskelly 81 minutes to get the better of Hong Kong's Leo Au 8-11, 11-3, 11-6, 8-11, 11-8.
