Top seeds tumble in Santiago Semis

Semi-finals of the Santiago Open 30th Anniversary PSA $25k tournament saw the top two seeds ousted as room-mates Cameron Pilley and Simon Rosner set up a finals day meeting.

Pilley, the fourth-seeded Australian, powered past top seed Adrian Grant in straight games 11-7, 11-6, 11-5 in just 38 minutes.

"Movement let me down today on 'the fastest court in the world'," tweeted Englishman Grant afterwards. "Pilley played better than me on the day.. Taking the positives!"

Pilley was naturally pleased: "Played well tonight to beat Granty 3-0, And playing the final on #WorldSquashDay!!!"

Rosner, the third seed from Germany, took almost twice as long to disappoint the home crowd with a tough four game win over defending champion Borja Golan, the second seed playing in his home town.

"Final-time!" tweeted a delighted Rosner. "Beat Borja 3:1 - playing my roomie @campilley in the final of the Santiago Open!"

18-Oct, Quarters:
Seeds through to Santiago semis

Well, so far, not a match has gone over the hour mark and it's not with attackers Simon Rosner and Cameron Pilley that we were going to get over that mark, was it!

Simon match against Shaun Le Roux was still extremely close score wise and the South African could have turned the tables in both first and third games. Still, experience on the glass has probably a lot to do with the German closing it down in three.

Cameron got caught in Omar Abdel Aziz's unorthodox style of game in the first, losing it 11/9, but got more and more control as the match advanced to finish in the fourth with a severe 11/1.

For seeds one and two, well, an "easy ride" for Adrian Grant, I mean, when was the last time he won in three bless him, and apart from the first game where young Ivan Yuen offered good resistance, 11/8, the rest was pretty straightforward.

Now for the other side of the draw, home favourite Borja Golan, Englishman Adrian Waller gave a pretty good scare to the Spaniard. Never scoring less than eight points per game, Adrian's resilience and discipline probably took Borja by surprise, and the audience had all the intensity/suspense they wished!

So tomorrow, dream semis, with Adrian v Cameron at 7pm, wouldn't miss that. Mind, I wouldn't miss the second semi either, Simon versus Borja at 8pm. In each semi, contrasting style of squash guarantee some fireworks I say...

17-Oct, Round One:
Mixed success for qualifiers
but no sweat for seeds

Mixed success for the four qualifiers who got to start the first round in Santiago as Andrew Wagih fell in four games to England's Adrian Waller, Shaun Le Roux denied an English double as he ousted Joe Lee, also in four games, and Raphael Kandra fell in five games to Omar Abdel Aziz.

The fourth and final qualifier, Yann Perrin, was two-nil up against Ivan Yuen, but lost the third 12-10 as the Malaysian completed a fighting comeback win.

Then it was on to the top four seeds. Simon Rosner and Adrian Grant both moved through with 3-0 wins ...

No trouble for Cameron Pilley against Spanish hope and Wild Card Carlos Cornes.

But Borja Golan, home favorite, keep the Spanish interest alive and finishes the day with a clean 3/0 win against Saurav Ghosal...


Salut fram

Bon un ptit mot apres ma défaite, un peu amer je dois dire..
Je menais 2-0 10-8 puis j ai flanché!! Il n est pas etrangé à ca je dois dire mais qd meme!!

Bref, apres la balle est devenu de plus en dead, j'arrivais plus à la mettre au fond perte de confiance des fautes trop tôt qui lui ont redonné confiance et voila!!
Bref bon tournoi qd meme dans l ensemble juste dommage de n avoir pu finir mieux que ca!!
Maintenant retour en france pour les par equipes puis de nouveau depart dimanche pour l'espagne à Valence!!

Après le 1er tour

Un ptit message (ca fait bien longtemps d'ailleurs) pour te dire que tout se passe bien pour moi.

J'ai fait un bon match hier contre Jens malgré l'impossibilite de faire un practice.. Je me sentais bien malgré une petite perte de concentration au 3eme.

Aujourd'hui j'ai vraiment bien joué surtout les 2 premiers où j'étais vraiment bien physiquement, j'étais vraiment à l'aise sur ce cours. J'attaquais bien tout en prenant le temps de construire les échanges. Puis au 3eme à 4-2 pour lui, on a fait un gros échange que j'ai gagné et j ai l'ai senti un peu tête basse. Il a fait des fautes ensuite qui m'ont donné l'avantage et permis de prendre le large et donc de finir le match.

Je suis vraiment content d'avoir pris ma revanche sur le Canada il y a 2 semaines où javais perdu 3-0. J ai surtout beaucoup appris de ce match et ça m'a permis de savoir sur quoi il fallait que je travaille. Ce que du coup nous avons pu mettre en place avec Renan, Dédé et Thomas. D'ailleurs ceci n est pas étranger à la nouvelle organisation du Creps qui est vraiment positive pour tous.

Voila demain Yuen c'est un match à ma portée, à moi de pas me contenter de cela..

Perrin, Pett and Sharpes first through to qualifying finals

Le Roux & Kandra join in with 3/2 wins ... Wagih finished the day off
