Delierre Marks GoodLife Hat-Trick

Canadian squash star Shawn Delierre delighted the crowd at the GoodLife Open in Ottawa by winning the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event at GoodLife Fitness for the third time.

The fourth seed from Montreal, winner of the title in 2006 and 2007, faced Martin Knight, the No3 seed from New Zealand who is ranked four places higher in the world.

It was Kiwi Knight who took the early lead, winning the first game with some tight length shots and finishing well with excellent backhand dropshots at the front.

Delierre regrouped in the second to draw level.

"In the third game, Knight got ahead in some long rallies, until he made three uncharacteristic errors in a row to let Delierre back in the game," explained tournament organiser Heather Wallace. "Delierre then followed up with some great drop shots to take the lead, leaving Knight to play catch up from then on.

"In the fourth and final game, Delierre picked up the pace and had Knight scrambling the full length of the court.

"Today Delierre just had too much in his arsenal for Knight and won a great four-game match."

The 4-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-7 victory in 67 minutes marks Delierre's first Tour title of the year - but the 11th of his career and the seventh on home soil.

Delierre & Knight Get To GoodLife Final

Former champion and local hero Shawn Delierre will face New Zealander Martin Knight in a surprise final of the GoodLife Squash Open, the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event in its eighth successive year at GoodLife Fitness in Ottawa, Canada.

Fourth seed Delierre, the 2006 and 2007 winner from Montreal, defeated unseeded Lucas Serme in a close match. Frenchman Serme had reached the semis after ousting Australia's defending champion and top seed Zac Alexander in the previous round.

"Shawn won the duels at the front of the court at the crucial times at the end of each game he won," said tournament organiser Heather Wallace. "His experience came through as he won 13-11, 11-9, 11-13, 11-5 in 51 minutes."

Knight, the No3 seed from Auckland, beat Clinton Leeuw, the South African who stunned second seed Chris Simpson to make the semis.

"Martin 'The Sponge' Knight was extremely sharp today as he soaked up everything Clinton Leeuw threw at him," added Wallace. "Knight, moving extremely well, ran down all of Leeuw's short volleys to take the first two games in a close battle, 11-9, 12-10.

"Leeuw started to make errors in the third game, losing his patience and Knight took it 11-5."

Delierre is celebrating his 16th PSA Tour final appearance - and his ninth on home soil - whilst Knight is marking the eighth of his career, but his first since April last year.

Serme Scores GoodLife Semi

Unseeded Frenchman Lucas Serme secured a surprise place in the semi-finals of the GoodLife Squash Open after ousting Australian title-holder Zac Alexander in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event in its eighth successive year at GoodLife Fitness in Ottawa.

"Lucas was very steady against No1 seed Alexander, losing the first game easily and hanging in the second game coming from two game balls down to win it," said tournament organiser Heather Wallace.

"Alexander squandered his two game balls with errors and Serme punished him with a couple of nicks to win it. Serme calmly played his way through the third game taking it, before Alexander took the fourth. Again in the fifth, Serme calmly handled everything Alexander did. With Alexander ultimately making errors, Serme took the fifth game easily."

The Paris-born 20-year-old's 5-11, 13-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-6 in 67 minutes takes Serme through to face Canadian Shawn Delierre. The No4 seed from Montreal continues to lead home hopes after beating Englishman Olivier Pett 4-11, 11-6, 11-3, 9-11, 11-1 in 60 minutes.

There was also an upset in the lower half of the draw where South African Clinton Leeuw removed England's No2 seed Chris Simpson 11-8, 12-10, 11-9.

"Leeuw dominated the T, putting Simpson under extreme pressure," explained Wallace. "Leeuw was on to the ball fast, attacking the volley and moving extremely well. Simpson managed to get one game ball in the second game, but could not convert it."

Cape Town-born Leeuw will now face Martin Knight for a place in the final. The No3 seed from New Zealand beat Austrian Aqeel Rehman 11-9, 13-11, 12-10 in 55 minutes.

Delierre Leads Home Hopes In Ottawa

Canadian number two Shawn Delierre single-handedly led home hopes through to the quarter-finals of the GoodLife Squash Open after beating Pakistan's Danish Atlas Khan in the opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event in its eighth successive year at Goodlife Fitness in Ottawa.

Twice champion Delierre, the 30-year-old No4 seed from Montreal, battled to an 11-8, 11-8, 11-5 victory over 18-year-old Khan in 54 minutes.

Delierre will now face Englishman Olivier Pett, the highest-ranked unseeded player in the draw who denied the crowd an all-Canadian quarter-final by beating wildcard Adrian Dudzicki 11-8, 8-11, 12-10, 11-8.

"The best match of the night was between local Ottawa boy Adrian who pushed Pett to four tough games," said tournament organiser Heather Wallace. "The difference maker being Olivier was too accurate at the front of the court."

Australia's Zac Alexander made a strong start in defence of the title he won last year. The top seed from Brisbane despatched Canadian Fred Reid 11-6, 11-9, 11-5 in just 22 minutes and will now face Lucas Serme for a place in the semi-finals

Frenchman Serme also overcame local opposition, beating Thomas Brinkman, a 23-year-old from British Columbia, 11-5, 11-4, 10-12, 11-5.
