Teenager Nouran Gohar Wins In Fitzwilliam

16 year old Egyptian takes the womenís Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Squash Open Title.

Adrian Waller of England winís the menís title after a battle of attrition against Scotsman Alan Clyne in five games lasting 93 minutes.

Here at Fitzwilliam today we witnessed a great show of squash between the experienced Sarah Kippax of England and 16 year old newcomer Nouran Ahmed Gohar from Egypt, and the Egyptian went on to take the title winning three games to one in superb fashion, her second WSA Tour title after winning in Prague just before Christmas last year. 

[4] Nouran Ahmed Gohar (EGY) beat [2] Sarah Kippax (ENG) 11/3, 8/11, 11/8, 11/5. 49 mins.

The menís final which followed was an absolute battle of attrition between two experienced and forceful squash players who slugged it out for five games over 93 minutes before Englishman Adrian Waller played a great smash into the front wall to take the final game 11/6, thus stopping his opponent, Scotsman Alan Clyne, from winning two tournaments in succession.

[2] Adrian Waller (ENG) beat [4] Alan Clyne (SCO) 11/8, 10/12, 8/11, 11/7, 11/6. 93 mins.


Semi Finals

Gohar Goes Through To Fitzwilliam Final

Here at Fitzwilliam this evening we saw some good semi finals, but unfortunately the last Irish representative Arthur Gaskin bowed out of the tournament as he lost to Scotsman Alan Clyne 3Ė0.

In the two ladies semi finals, Nouran Ahmed Gohar (Left) the 16 year old Egyptian came through to beat her American opponent in three straight games, and in the second the experience of English lady Sarah Kippax, with her stylish, graceful squash, won out against the Welsh warrior Tesni Evans 3 games to 1.

Should be a great ladies final tomorrow.


Quarter Finals

Bad News For The Irish At Fitzwilliam

It was good news for the Irish at first as the Irish No 1 Menís player Arthur Gaskin has a fine win over England qualifier Mark Fuller in four games, in a great match that lasted 66 minutes.

Unfortunately Irelandís No 1 Womenís player Madeline Perry, ranked 8 in the world went down to unseeded American Olivia Blatchford (right) in five superb games over 53 minutes. A sad loss for Ireland but great credit to the young American for all her grace.

A great Scottish match earlier left Alan Clyne in the winners chair, and also a lovely ladies match between the two young Egyptians finished with the younger Nouran Ahmed Gouran the winner.

Another upset for Ireland came when Tesni Evans from Wales pulled back from 2 games down to beat Aisling Blake, Irelandís No 2, 3 games to 2.

First Round

Itís A Good Day For The Irish At Fitzwilliam

The first round of the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Open Squash tournament took place today, and it started off with a slight disappointment as Menís No1 seed Tom Richards had to retire through injury after just a few minutes of his match.

Fortunately after that start, the Irish players turned up trumps and gave us some good results. Irelandís top two lady players both got through their first round games but in different circumstances.

Madeline Perry had a fairly comfortable 3 Ė 0  win against qualifier Antonella Falcione, all the way from Argentina , but Aisling Blake won again 3 Ė 0 but against a much tougher opponent in Australian girl Sarah Cardwell, and all three games were very tight. In the match of the day Irelandís No 1 menís player Arthur Gaskin had a tremendous tussle in his match against qualifier Douglas Kempsell, as after taking a 2 games to nil lead Arthur lost concentration to let Douglas pull back to level at 2 Ė 2, but then managed to come back strong and win a very tight fifth and deciding game.

Unfortunately Galwayís part time player Bryan Byrne had his great run of success stopped by the tournamentís No 3 seed Ryan Cuskelly from Australia. There was also a very good win by Scotsman Alan Clyne, whilst two players, Mark Fuller (ENG) and Greg Lobhan (SCO) advanced to the next round thanks to their opponents retiring injured.

In the ladies tournament there were also good wins for Olivia Blatchford from America, Tesni Evans from Wales, and both young Egyptian players Nouran Gohad and Yathreb Adel had good wins to set up an all Egyptian quarter final tomorrow.

Qualifying Final Round

Byrne Wins In An Epic Match

Today we find out the players who will have earned the right to a place in the main draw of the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Open Squash Tournament. We saw some amazing squash all through the afternoon here at Fitzwilliam, but the best was definitely saved until the last when local club player Bryan Byrne won an amazing victory in front of a very vociferous Irish crowd, when he came back at the death to save two match balls then go on to defeat Dutchman Tom de Mulder, a younger and much more experienced player, in the longest match of the day at 66 minutes. The eight players through to the main draw represent seven different countries.


Qualifying Under Way In Dublin

Today sees the start here at Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club of the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Open 2014, which has now reached itís 10th year under the sponsorship of Cannon Kirk Homes, which in this period of economic downfall says an awful lot about Cannon Kirkís commitment to squash. We start as usual with the first round of qualifying in both menís and womenís tournaments.

Qualifying First Round Report

A great start to the day for the Irish supporters as 19 year old local boy Sean Conroy, ranked 261 in the world, came off court with a marvellous 3 Ė 0 win against 33 year old, much more experienced Austrian Jakob Dirnberger, ranked 220. Later in the evening young Conor OíHare put up a really strong fight against a much more experienced opponent, actually getting to game ball in both the first two games only to lose out in extra points.

In the last match of the day last local player Brian Byrne won a fabulous victory over the #2 qualifying seed Reuben Phillips of England in what was the best match of the day.

Unfortunately there was no luck for the Irish in the ladies section as all four local entrants went down in their first matches, even though youngsters Fiona Power and Griffin Gillanders literally stepped off the plane at Dublin Airport, arriving back from Finland after helping the Irish Team to sixth place in the European U 19ís Team Championship, and came straight to the club to play their games. And a special mention to club member Jody Hannon for stepping in at the last minute as a local entrant at the age of 35, and putting up a really good show against a very experienced Argentinian.
