Anthony Reimert reports

Auguste Dussourd 3-2 Edgar Zayas

The first game really set the stage for the match as it was an all out battle between two great young players. Battling back and forth until 10-10 it took Auguste extra points to put away Edgar in the first game. In the second game the battle continued as the players exchanged points until 4-4 before Edgar went on a run that saw him come back from being down 7-4 to winning the match 11-7.

In the third game Dussourd who was clearly frustrated at some of the referees calls was motivated to get that third game stormed on from 7-7 tie to win the game 11-7 in 14 minutes. In the fourth game Zayas continued to hang around in the match battling for each point and keeping it close until a breakthrough when the score was 6-6. At this point Edgar went on a run of 5 straight points to close out the fourth game 11-6 and force a fifth and deciding game.

In the fifth you could clearly see that something was bothering Edgar as his movement wasn’t nearly as quick. Auguste jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead and despite trying to hang around in the match Edgar eventually lost 11-3 to the young French man.

Andrew Schnell 3-0  Reuben Phillips

Clearly in a league of his own in this tournament Andrew Schnell cruised into the final. The first game saw Andrew jump out to a 8-2 lead and it just seemed like he was a half a step quicker than the Englishman. Reuben continued to battle but Andrew ultimately prevailed in the first game 11-4.

The second game brought a bit more fight from Reuben with them exchanging points until 5-5 but from then on Andrew had control of most of the rallies and won the second game 11-7. The third game was not really even a contest, Andrew continued his dominant style of play moving Reuben from front to back.

The closest Reuben got was at 2-5 but from then on it was all Schnell as he used the crowd to his favor and went on to win the game and match 11-2.


26-Feb, Quarters:

Andrew Schnell 3-0 Micah Franklin


Despite the long rallies Andrew Schnell proved to be too much for Micah Franklin of Bermuda. After starting 1-1 in the first game Andrew went on to take 10 straight points to win the first game 11-1. The second game was much the same with Andrew jumping out to a 6-2 lead and then extending his lead to 10-3 before closing out the game at 11-4.

In the final game of the match Micah put up a valiant effort but the Canadian was just too much for the Bermudan winning the game 11-5.

Reuben Phillips 3-0 Diego Gobbi

In game one of this 3 game match Reuben jumped out to a 4-0 lead before the young Brazilian got on the board. They exchanged tremendous shots and it was a battle right until the final point but Reuben managed to win 11-5.

In the Second game Reuben carried forward the momentum from the first game and came out firing taking a 7-1 lead, before Diego started to put up a battle right up until the final points when the game ended 11-6. Knowing that it was his last chance Diego worked hard to earn a 4-1 lead in the fourth game; however Reuben stormed back with 4 straight unanswered points to take a 5-4 lead.

After Diego won the next two points Reuben came back with another 5 points giving him a 10-5 lead and lot of opportunity to close out the match which he did at 11-8.

Edgar Zayas 3-1 Jesus Camacho

Another upset as Edgar Zayas continued his excellent play in the quarterfinals beating Jesus Camacho in 4 games. The first game was owned by Edgar as he played his way to an 8-2 lead giving him plenty of opportunity to close out the match, despite the great effort from Jesus he was only able to hold off Edgar for a few more points until the game was closed out at 11-6.

The second game was a different story, the young 17 year old Jesus came out firing and never let off of the gas as he cruised to an 11-1 victory in the second game. Edgar clearly motivated to improve on game two and Jesus looking to continue his momentum exchanged points until 5-5 and then Edgar took over and won the game 11-5.

In the fourth and final game Edgar continued his dominant play from the second half of game 3 and opened up with a 6-1 lead before Jesus fought back but could only get to 6-10 before Edgar closed it out at 11-6.

Auguste Dussourd 3-0 Shahjahan Khan

The number 6 seed and the number 2 seed faced off early in the afternoon and it was a battle through the first game as Auguste and Shah exchanged points until Auguste finally broke out at 8-7 and finished off the match with some tremendous shots to win the first game 11-7.

Clearly motivated by winning the first game against the number 2 seed Auguste broke out to an early 7-4 lead and only allowed Shah to get one more point before closing out the match at 11-5. The final game was a battle as the two player exchanged points from until 7-7.

Auguste then took a late lead at 10-7 giving him a couple of match balls which he was able to close out on his last opportunity winning the match 11-9.
