15-Sep, Final:
Graham wins marathon final in Costa Rica

It was the top seeds Anthony Graham and Arthur Gaskin who contested the final of the Costa Rica Open in San Jose, and if the audience both at the Costa Rica Tennis Club and those watching the live coverage on national TV were expecting an exciting match, they weren't disappointed.

Irishman Gaskin took the first two games but Graham, the to seed from England and the younger of the pair at xx compared to Gaskin's 27, mounted a stirring comeback, finally taking the match after 77 minutes to become the first English winner of the trophy, and record his first PSA title.

"Graham had a perfect 5th game, Gaskin lost his concentration and that was it," said tournament spokesman Tomás Restrepo. "Awesome week of squash!!"

13-Sep, Quarters:
Canadians crash out in Costa Rica Quarters

Squash Canada was pleased to report that four Canadian players had progressed to the quarter-finals in San Jose, and that none of tem were due to play each other.

That brought with it chances of a Canadian clean sweep, but also the danger of a quartet of losses, which is exactly what happened.

Top seeds Anthony Graham and Arthur Gaskin would have been expected to progress, and they beat Mike McCue and Andrew McDougall respectively.

" I thought they were going to have at least 2 in the semis," said tournament spokesman Tomás Restrepo.

It wasn't to be though as fourth seed Thomas Brinkman and third seed David Letourneau both fell in five games, to Mexicans Jonathan Ramos and Erik Tepos.

"It was a great night," added Restrepo, "almost 5 hours of very good squash!"

12-Sep, Round One:
Canadians advance in Costa Rica

Each of the four quarter-finals of the Costa Rica Open will feature a Canadian competitor after the first round of action in San Jose which saw the four seeded players safely through to the last eight.

Mike McCue faces top seed Anthony Graham, Thomas Brinkman meets qualifier Jonathan Ramos, David Letourneau is up against Erik Tepos and Andrew McDougall's reward for beating compatriot Matthew Serediak is a clash with second seed Arthur Gaskin.
