BC Honda Dealers Sun & Surf 2011
02-07 August, Vancouver, Canada, $28k

07-Aug, Final:
Teran takes the title at Jericho
Shauna Flath reports

Mexico's Samantha Teran won the BC Honda Dealers Open with fast, precise attacking squash against top seed Jaclyn Hawkes in the final.

Jaclyn couldn't get into the match at all as Samantha, the second seed, had an answer for everything and was on top of every ball.

Despite fears that Teran might suffer from tough matches in the previous two rounds, it seemed to be the lack of hard matches prior to the final that hurt Jaclyn as she just couldn't get into the match.

It was short and sweet and congratulations to Samantha for an outstanding week of squash here at the Jericho Tennis Club.

06-Aug, Semis:
The final is set at Jericho
Shauna Flath reports

It will be the top two seeds who contest the final of the 2011 of the Sun & Surf at the Jericho Club in Vancouver, after Jaclyn Hawkes and Samantha Teran prevailed in contrasting semi-finals ...

Two words for Jaclyn’s match - excellent length. Dying in the back, forcing the boast and the width on the cross court was exceptional.

Incredible in the first two games, she set herself up and Latasha didn’t have an answer … then Latasha picked up the pace to suit how she likes to play and forced Jaclyn a bit more, but Jaclyn won in the end three straight in just under half an hour.

The second semi between Samantha and Emma took a lot longer. Both players are solid and steady with their game style … not a lot of flair but steady … long rallies, great shot selection and patient.

Samantha took the first 11-7, then Emma took the next game 11-7 it was back and forth, a toss up it appeared for a while but in the end Samantha had more in the tank and pushed through to take the match in four.

The final is set for tomorrow a rematch of the last tournament they both played in Asia where Jaclyn won. The crowd is looking forward to it…

Jaclyn has a lot of gas in her tank as she has rolled through the top half of the draw and Samantha is strong and steady so it should be fun!

05-Aug, Quarters:
Quarters don't disappoint Vancouver
Shauna Flath reports

It started off smoothly with Jaclyn Hawkes and Misaki Kokayashi clean, controlled and efficient.

Jaclyn put in what she needed and won in style with a 3-0 performance. Misaki played well but Jaclyn’s shot selection and overall execution sealed the match in a quick 27mins and definitely has gas in her tank for tomorrow as she has not yet been fully put to the test.

Latasha Khan and Victoria Lust battled….

First game 18-16 back and forth tight all the way through. Latasha continued with solid play and so did Victoria but Latasha pulled through and won the hard long rallies to take the next 2 games 11-9, 11-8 to win in a long 3 games.

Emma Beddoes - “Beds” - was exceptional tonight….it has been 4 years since she was last her but her solid presence on the court and her perseverance showed through.  Heba El Torky the risk taker took some risks and took the first game but in the end it was the steady play of “Beds” that was solid in every rally. Different styles from both players but overall a great match, entertaining and Emma closed it out in 4.

Then the last match Engy Kheriallah and Samantha Teran  …

First two games were errors off of Engy’s racquet and Samantha did what she does best just getting the ball back and waiting for the mistake from Engy. Then the third…..Samantha hit with Engy in the face with her racquet….

Engy ...dizzy,  took her time and some ice….Karim will be very proud that she can take a hit to the chin…she’s got a bruise but nothing serious. Once she regrouped she went back on the court put in a great effort but Samantha closed it out in three.

Semi finals will be good tomorrow and everyone is looking forward to it!


04-Aug, Round One:
Round One in Vancouver
Shauna Flath reports

Another great night here at Jericho on the patio and on the squash court!

Engy Kheirallah, beautiful player, it is really good to see her on the court after a absence from tour events since October of last year. She sealed her match in style with excellent shot selection and defeated Carolyn Russell in three straight convincing games.

Misaki Kobayashi and Olivia Blatchford had a battle with back and forth rallies but Masaki prevailed in four as Olivia is a bit battered and tired just coming off the World Junior Team Championships.

Heba El Torky and Nayelly Hernandez had a great match as well with Heba showing her quickness and her fantastic working boast as it proved to be very effective against Nayelly. Heba is well rested with finishing the match in 17mins.

Lucie Fialova the hard hitting lefty from put up a fight by taking the first game from Victoria Lust 13-11 but Lust turned it around and played a much more tactical game and won the next three to take the match 3-1.

Latasha Khan was just too strong tonight for Alex Norman, with great ball placement and took control in the match to close out all games to take the match three-nil.

Samantha Teran played solid squash to win over Melanie Jans in three but not without a fantastic effort from Canada’s former #1 player. It was a treat for the fans as Mel played a great week of squash and we will miss her as her Mark and Ryder are off to Florida this fall.

Canada’s new #1 Miranda Ranieri played fantastic against Jaclyn Hawkes and put up a great fight for three hard games. Jaclyn prevailed and displayed why she is the #1 seed with an 11-4, 11-8 11-8 performance.

The sun is out, the tournament is full and everyone is having a fantastic time. We are all looking forward to the matchups tomorrow!

03-Aug, Qualifying Finals:
Upsets abound in Vancouver
Shauna Flath reports

Wow what a night for the last round of qualifying, exciting to say the least. Two Canadians have made it into the main round, Carolyn Russell and Melanie Jans, both returning to action after retiring from the circuit (Russell recently, Jans some years ago).

Carolyn defeated Samantha Cornett in a tough and physical four games. Melanie played outstanding tactical squash as she slowed down the pace with Leoni Holt and her patience and court awareness was definitely evident.

Also coming through in exciting matches were Kristen Lange, who battled back from being down 2-1 and finishing off the match with outstanding game 4 and 5 performances against Thaisa Serafini in the longest match of the night at 58 minutes, and Nayelly Hernandez, who defeated Stephanie Edmison in another long match with Nayelly closing it out 14-12 in the fourth.

02-Aug, Qualifying Round One:

Jans and Russell relive the old days

It was a good day for the hosts as qualifying got under way for the 2011 edition of Sun & Surf at Vancouver's Jericho Club, as four Canadians progressed to the final round of qualifying.

There were crowd-pleasing wins for former Canadian national team players Melanie Jans and Carolyn Russell, both now retired from the circuit (Russell only recently, Jans some years ago), who are joined in the final round by Samantha Cornett and Stephanie Edmison.

Cornett, the top qualifying seed who received a bye, now meets Russell while Jans faces England's Leonie Holt for a place in the main draw.
