Milnay never gave up and kept the intensity resulting in the 3rd game win for her but Rowan showed her class and amazing temperament for a 15 year old player clinching the 4th 11-9.

In the Menís Main draw no 2 seed Aqeel Rehman, Austrian no 1 beat unseeded Egyptian Hesham Mohamed Aly in 60 minutes 3-1. After winning the first game 11-4,

Aqeel found himself 3-8 down in the 2nd after Hesham raised to an early lead, never giving up he fought his way to 9-9 and then went point for point eventually clinching the 2nd 15-13. Hesham again started the 3rd game quickly easing into a lead and this time he hung on securing the game win.

Aqeel bounced back and showed some amazing skills of fetching and a steady temperament closing off the match 3-1 to win his 8th PSA final.

Milnay outclassed Cheyna Tucker to win in three games also yet to be truly tested in this event not having dropped a game.

Day 6 of the Keith Grainger Memorial UCT Squash Open
Kerr Rogers reports


In the Womenís PSA Main draw Egyptian U17 no 1 player, Rowan Elaraby continued her good form in South Africa still not dropping a game in 2 tournaments when she beat the no 1 seed Sina Wall 3-0 in 23 min.

Rowan again impressed with her speed to the front and collected and dispatched any lose balls putting her opponent under immense pressure by speeding the game up. All the top seeds in the bottom half of the draw proceeded into the semi-finals without dropping a game, including South Africa's Milnay Louw, pictured beting Sacha West.


In the Menís Main draw the talk of the evening was the upset of the tournament with no 6 seed JP Brits beating the no 1 seed Shehab Essam in 59 minutes. JP showed his intensity in the 1st game with his relentless speed and patience enduring long rallies to eventually secure a crucial 15-13 first game lead, he lost the second but came back firing in the 3rd winning 11-9 and kept this intensity into the 4th finishing off a great 3-1 win.

Unseeded Egyptian Hesham Mohamed Aly beat the no 5 seed Mark Broekman in 3 entertaining games. Tomorrows menís semi-finals promises to be an exciting evening with last weeks Assore Central Gauteng Open Finalists squaring up against each other again.

The match last week went for 92 minutes of thrilling squash with Leandro Romiglio winning 20-18 in the 5th against the no 2 seed from Austria Aqeel Rehman, both winning their quarter-finals tonight.

Day 5 of the Keith Grainger Memorial UCT Squash Open
Kerr Rogers reports


In the Womenís PSA Main draw all top seeds made their way into the quarter final fairly comfortably, it was only the no 2 seed Cheyna Tucker who had to fight through 5 games against fellow South African Kacey-Leigh Dodd to progress to the next round.

The first 4 games were closely contested requiring Cheyna to fight back from 1-2 down to level proceedings and then her experience shone through in the 5th. The crowds were able to get their first glimpse of talented 15 year old Egyptian U17 no 1 player, Rowan Elaraby who won in 3 straight games and comes up against the no 1 seed in tomorrows quarterfinals.

In the Menís Main draw the seeded International players made quick work of the local South Africans, all seeds progressed to the next round except for the no 4 seed Matthew Serediak from Canada who was beaten by Egyptian Hesham Mohamed Aly in 4 games.

Three South Africans still remain in the draw as we head into the quarter finals. All eyes will be on SA no 1 Rodney Durbach who takes on recent Assore Central Gauteng Open champion Leandro Romiglio in tomorrows quarter final.

Quarter finals start from 13h00 ending off with the final match at 20h00.
