Razik Reclaims Manitoba Trophy

Two years after winning the title for the first time, Canada's Shahier Razik reclaimed the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Squash Open trophy after beating France's Jean-Michel Arcucci in the final of the PSA Tour event in Winnipeg, Canada.

Razik, the top seed from Toronto, recovered from a game down to defeat the fourth seed 8-11 11-3 11-5 11-9 in 65 minutes to win the 12th PSA title of his career.

Razik Rallies To Ross Victory In Manitoba

Canada's Shahier Razik made sure of local interest in the climax of the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Squash Open in Winnipeg – but it took the top seed 105 minutes to overcome his fifth-seeded opponent Stacey Ross in the semi-finals of the PSA Tour event in the Canadian province of Manitoba.

Ross, from Surrey in England, took the first game after winning the tie-break 6-4, but the Toronto-based favourite, the event champion in 2004, maintained the upper hand over the next three games to win 10-11 11-8 11-9 11-1.

In his 19th PSA final, Razik will face France's Jean-Michel Arcucci after the fourth seed beat England's sixth seed Scott Handley 11-9 11-5 11-8 in exactly an hour.

The 31-year-old from Oxfordshire will now face France's fourth seed Jean-Michel Arcucci, who ended unseeded Bernardo Samper's brave run by beating the Colombian 11-10 11-4 5-11 11-9.

Ross took just 45 minutes to overcome Mexico's third seed Eric Galvez 11-6 11-6 11-4. The 32-year-old from Surrey will now take on Canada's sole representative in the event Shahier Razik. The favourite from Toronto defeated Montreal-based Shawn Delierre, the seventh seed, 10-11 11-6 11-2 11-3.

Samper Scampers Into Manitoba Quarters
Unseeded Colombian Bernardo Samper caused the only upset on the opening day of action in the ADL Optical/Rodenstock Manitoba Squash Open when he despatched Bermuda's eighth seed Nicholas Kyme 11-7 11-7 11-3 in 40 minutes in Winnipeg, Canada.

The 23-year-old from Bogotá now faces fourth seed Jean-Michel Arcucci in the last eight after the Frenchman beat New Zealand qualifier Martin Knight 11-7 11-4 11-5.
