Delasaux Delivers With Wallingford Win
England's Laurence Delasaux pulled off two successive upsets to win the Hithercroft Open Squash Championship title today (Sunday) in the English town of Wallingford, in Oxfordshire.

In the semi-finals, the seventh seed from Hull overcame a first game deficit to beat compatriot Alex Stait, the third seed from Gloucestershire, in four games.

The 20-year-old then faced fourth-seeded Hungarian Mark Krajcsak, the 22-year-old from Budapest who reached his first PSA Tour final after upsetting England's top seed Stacey Ross in the other semi-final.
In his fourth PSA final, Delasaux took 45 minutes to beat Krajcsak 11-6 11-10 11-7 to earn the second PSA title of his career.
 

Ross Romps Into Hithercroft Final

Top seed Stacey Ross took just 17 minutes to claim his place in the semi-finals of the Hithercroft Open Squash Championship in Wallingford in the English county of Oxfordshire.

 

In marked contrast to his straight games victory in the first round, which lasted a remarkable 80 minutes, Ross raced to an 11-2 11-2 11-6 win over fellow Englishman Jago Nardelli, the eighth seed, to set up a meeting with fourth seed Mark Krajcsak.

 

The Hungarian came back from a game down to beat England's sixth seed Tom Richards 9-11 11-10 11-3 11-5 in 34 minutes.

 

There was disappointment in the lower half of the draw when Wallingford-based second seed Scott Handley was forced to retire injured in his quarter-final after twice holding the lead against compatriot Laurence Delasaux. The pair battled for four and a half games before seventh-seeded Yorkshireman Delasaux claimed his 10-11 11-10 5-11 11-8 6-3 win.

 

Mixed Fortunes For Locals In Hithercroft Open

There were mixed fortunes for two local players competing in the first round of the Hithercroft Open Squash Championship in Wallingford in the English county of Oxfordshire.

 

Unseeded Hithercroft 'import' Ryan Thomson, a 21-year-old from Namibia, stretched eighth seed Jago Nardelli to five games before bowing out 7-11 11-7 7-11 11-9 11-5 after an 83-minute marathon.

 

But Wallingford's own Scott Handley had more to celebrate as he despatched fellow Englishman Darren Lewis, a qualifier, 11-2 11-4 11-3 in just 24 minutes.

 

The second seed is due to meet Stacey Ross in the final but, in an exceptionally long straight games encounter, the favourite was kept on court for 80 minutes before he was able to overcome Egyptian qualifier Mohamed Ali Anwar Reda 11-9 11-9 11-9.


Lewis Lines Up Local Star Handley After Qualifying Marathon

England's Darren Lewis battled through three tie-break games before finally overcoming Welshman Jethro Binns 11-10 10-11 11-10 5-11 11-6 in a 78-minute marathon to earn a place in the first round of the Hithercroft Open Squash Championship in England.

 

Lewis, from Leicestershire, now faces second seed Scott Handley in this new PSA Tour event in Wallingford in the county of Oxfordshire. Handley, a former world No41, is based in Wallingford and will celebrate his 31st birthday the day after Sunday's final, in which he is due to meet England's top seed Stacey Ross.

 

Egyptian teenager Tarek Momen also came through the qualifying finals after a five-game battle, clinching victory 6-4 in a fifth-game tie-break. The 17-year-old from Cairo now faces Englishman Alex Stait, the third seed from Gloucestershire.
