2011 PSA Tournament of Champions Final in New York

January 27, 2011 2 comments

 The final of the 2011 PSA Tournament of Champions in New York was won by the Ramy Ashour in a 52 minute master class at New York’s Grand Central Station. Ramy took the match to Nick Matthew in the 1st game, with an 11-3 demolishing, but the World No.1 fought back in the 2nd to level things up 1-1.

However it was the young Egyptian who was able to keep his lead in the 3rd & 4th games and hold the Englishman at arms length as he pressed home his advantage 11-9 11-7.

A jubilant Ashor said “The really good thing about tonight is that I was moving well and was in touch with my body.” (a reference to his injury prone season). And to top things off for Ramy his mum was there (for the first time in 5 years) to see him lift the title.

Artemis BSPA & WISPA Events at Edinburgh Sports Club

January 26, 2011 1 comment

 Daryl Selby and Dominique Lloyd-Walter were crowned 2011 Champions at the BSPA and WISPA Artemis Squash Tournament at Edinburgh Sports Club this weekend.

 Daryl beat the very exciting and attaching Andy Whipp (No.3/4 seed) in three straight games. And although the quality of the match was excellent it was always going to be physically tough for both players to raise their game’s after both had tough 3-2 victories in the semi-finals (Daryl’s lasting an hour and a half!)

 Dominique also won 3-0 against No.2 seed Orla Noom (from the Netherlands) and celebrated her first victory after a 6 month injury-forced lay off.
