15-Oct, Final:
It's Kandra in three

14-Oct, Semis:
Kandra and Schnell through to final
Mark Anderson reports

It took nearly three hours of fantastic squash on Friday night to set the finals of the CSC Open.

World #45 and German #2 Raphael Kandra was pushed to the limit by Richie Fallows in the first semifinal. The 21 year old Englishman fought hard to take a tight fourth game 12-10 before finally succumbing to Kandra 11-8 in the fifth, earning a standing ovation from the packed house.

In the second semifinal, Canadian #1 Andrew Schnell went out to a quick 2-0 lead against #2 seed Charles Sharpes. Sharpes, who had a long five setter the night before, rallied in the third, taking the game 12-10. Schnell came back to take the fourth 12-10.

After the match, Schnell said of his opponent, "He has a reputation for being very, very tough to beat. He's one of those guys who never goes away... He sucks you into this rhythmic type of play and the next thing you know he's winning points and you don't even know why."

Both Kandra and Schnell have excellent records in PSA tour finals. Kandra has come out on top in 11 of his 18 finals, winning his last seven PSA finals appearances. Schnell has not lost in his three PSA finals.

The two have met twice on the PSA tour, each winning once. The most recent match, in 2013, saw Kandra win 3-1 in a 58 minute semifinal. Schnell looks to be the fresher player going into the finals, having dropped only one game on his way to the finals.

Join us at 5:00 PM for the final. The sponsors' junior clinic is at 1:00 PM and the adults play the pro is at 2:30 PM.
