02-Mar, Quarter-Finals:

Three French in Kish Island semis

Second seed Mark Krajcsak is on course to reach the final of the Kish Persian Gulf Cup in Iran, but a trio of Frenchmen stand in the Hungarian's way of winning the PSA $10kin its fourth year at Kish Sports Centre at Kish Island.

The 28-year-old from Budapest ended Nathan Lake's run when he beat the English qualifier 11-2, 11-4, 11-7 in 30 minutes.

Krajcsak will now face Fabien Verseille, the fourth seed from Aix-en-Provence who ousted in-form Pakistani Muhammad Saqib Yousaf 11-5, 13-11, 11-5.

Top seed Yann Perrin offers Krajcsak's stiffest resistance in the lower half of the draw. The 2010 champion defeated Kuwait's Ammar Al-Tamimi 11-7, 13-11, 11-9.

The 26-year-old world No74 - ranked just three places higher than the Hungarian number one - will line up against fellow countryman Joan Lezaud in the other semi-final.

Lezaud, 26 and also based in Aix, was taken the full distance before overcoming Finn Matias Tuomi 11-9, 7-11, 11-9, 2-11, 11-6 in 47 minutes.


01-Mar, Round One:
Seeds sail  into Persian Gulf Quarters

There were no upsets in the first round of the PSA $10k Persian Gulf Cup in the Iranian resort of Kish Island - which is apparently the fourth most visited place in the middle east.

It was a good day for the France as Yann Perrin, Joan Lezaud and Fabien Verseille all made the quarter-finals, along with Hungary's second seed Mark Krajcsak.

The most notable match though, was that between Englishmen Nathan Lake and Reuben Phillips. Lake, a qualifier, beat Phillips, who got a 'lucky loser' spot, for the second time in two days to reach the last eight.
