23 Dec, Final:
Third seeds  Jie and Pajares triumph in Sarawak

Finals day of the 7th Malaysia Tour Squash Circuit 2016 in Sarawak startedc with the all-Malaysian women's final between good friends Rachel Arnold and Teh Min Jie, the second and third seeds.

Arnold was making most of the unforced errors in the early stages, but recovered to take a two-one lead. She lost that control though, and with Teh Min Jie playing most of the winning shots she went on to take the match in five and claim her first PSA title..

After surviving a 102-minute marathon yesterday, Spain's Iker Pajeras took out the second seeded Chi Him Wong in 38 minutes in the men's final. Iker got the better of most of the long rallies, forcing the errors from Wong as he collected his third PSA title.

The prizes were given away by Y.B Fazzrudin Hj Abdul Rahman Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri N6 Tupong.

22 Dec, Semis:
Top seeds fall in the semis in Sarawak

It will be an all-Malaysian women's final in Sarawak after a comfortable 3/0 win for Rachel Arnold  and a walkover for Teh Min Jie over top seed Sivasangari who was unfortunately unable to play due to viral fever.

The match of the day was from 3rd seeded Spaniard Iker Pajares who took 102 minutes to beat top seed Rex Hedrick in five games.

Iker took the first game in 11/4 easily, but the second was the highlight,  it took 37 minutes for Iker to go two-nil up 13/11. was 2 games up. Rex upped the pace and made iker run around the court,  taking the third and fourth 11/4, 11/3.

In the decider Iker took the early lead, 7-1,  a couple of unforced errors made it 7-3 but then Iker finished off the match 11/3.

Meanwhile, the other semi final match saw Chi Him Wong from Hong Kong beat Edmon Lopez in straight games.

21-Dec, Quarters:
Seeds through to semis in Sarawak

The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the last PSA event of the year, but getting there was easier for some than others.

Highlight of the men's matches was the clash between Iker Pajares and Sanjay Singh. It was a close one with Sanjay playing some great shots and Iker retrieving a lot. Iker won the first game 11-7 with great control and was up 10-5 before Sanjay recovered to take the game 15-13. Iker won the 3rd 11-8 after being 7-0 up, but Sanjay played some great squash to take the fourth 11-8 after being 8-6 down. In the fifth it was a lot of retriving from Iker and some great shots from Sanjay but eventually the higher seeded Spaniard took the match 11-8 after 69 minutes with a great counter drop.

He'll meet top seed Rex Hedrick for a place in the final, while the other semi will be between second and fourth seeds Chi Him Wong and Edmon Lopez after both won their quarters in four games.

In the women's matches, Aika Azman came back to beat Chan Yiwen after being 2-0 down and 11-10 match ball down in the fifth. Aika showed great courage and fighting spirit to make her come back and book her place in the semifinal. This match was also a great boost for Chan Yi Wen as she will be competing in the upcoming British Junior Open.

The all-Malaysian semi-finals will see Azman take on Rachel Arnold while top seed Sivasangari Subramanian - also headed for the BJO - faces Teh Min Jie.
