Hemubo Trophy 2009
29-31 May, Almere, Netherlands, $3k

31-May, Final:
Lane clinches Hemubo Trophy
Tommy Berden reports

Gilly Lane showed great skill and stamina today at the Hemubo Squash Trophy 2009 in the Dutch city of Almere. The 23-year old American, ranked 78 in the world, first squeezed past England’s Neil Cordell in the semi finals, before securing an impressive straight game victory over Joe Lee in the event’s climax.

After beating Cordell 11-9 in the fifth earlier in the day, the Dutch based player seemed likely to start slow against his four year younger opponent who only needed three games to knock out Andre Haschker from Germany in his semi final.

However, top-seeded Lane dominated play from the outset against the talented Englishmen and never looked in danger throughout the opening two games. The third was a different story though. Lee raced to a 7-1 lead, only to find Lane clawing his way back into a 10-9 advantage.

The first match ball was saved, but not long after the American clinched the match with yet another great winner: 11-5, 11-7, 12-10.

It was Lane’s second PSA Tour Title in his career, both won in the last six months. At the end of November last year, the US number two proved victorious at the KEAN Delft Open 2008, also held in his ‘adopted’ country the Netherlands.

30-May, Quarters:
Favourites through in
Hemubo Trophy

All favourites moved through to the semi finals of the Hemubo Squash Trophy 2009 yesterday in the Dutch city of Almere.

American Gilly Lane ended Dutch interest with a four game win over regular training partner Bart Ravelli. The world number 78 dropped the first, before stepping up the pace and claiming a semi final berth in his ‘home club’. The top seed will now face Neil Cordell, after the Englishman knocked out Peter Creed from Wales, also in four games.

The bottom half of the draw features another young and talented English player and an experienced German. Second seed Joe Lee proved a little too strong for Swiss international Reiko Peter in his quarter final and fourth seeded Andre Haschker survived a close four game match with Mark Fuller, also from England.

Lane favourite to win
Hemubo Trophy

Dutch based Gilly Lane is seeded to win the second PSA title of his career this weekend at the Hemubo Squash Trophy 2009 in the Dutch city of Almere.

The 23-year old American moved to the Netherlands at the beginning of 2008, a move that clearly paid off as he rose from 117 in the world to his current ranking of 78. In the mean time Lane conquered the KEAN Delft Open 2008 in his ‘adopted’ home country and reached two more finals in the last six months.

Lane will face stiff opposition from a field that includes seven English and three Dutch players, as well as players from Wales, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland and Finland. 19-year old Joe Lee is seeded to reach Sunday’s final and is looking for his maiden tour title.
