Qualifying Match Reports

Round One:

Match 1: Jake Hooker 3-0 Brock Janzer
Coming off of his wildcard spot at the Medicine Hat Open Brock Janzer looked to a spot in the main draw of the MRU Open. Unfortunately his tournament would be short lived with a 3-0 loss to Jake Hooker. A very clean game with very few calls and long rallies but Jake showed his experience and only took 3 games to eliminate Brock from the qualifying round.

Match 2: Abdelrahman Dweek 3-2 Hojung Kim
Fresh off his recent 4th place finish at the British Junior Open, Calgarian Maan Dweek won his debut match on the PSA world tour in convincing fashion against Honjung Kim of Korea. Going in, nobody in the crowd knew anything about Kim, and the match was shaping up to be close. The first game was over in a blur, with Kim making some nervous errors and Dweek looking solid. During the second game, Kim began to find his length and cut down the errors, but Dweek stayed solid and consistent. Although Kim fought to the very end and pushed hard, Maan took the game 11-9. During the third game, Dweek pushed hard to keep the pace high and was just too solid for Kim, taking the third 11-4.

Match 3: Alex Scherer 3-2 Francois Auger
Francois came into the match as the highest ranked local that plays out of Mount Royal University, he was definitely the underdog against local Alex Scherer but that didn’t stop Francois from jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead by taking the first two games 11-7. Alex showed great determination and continued to wear on Francois which caused great fatigue leading to several unforced errors. Alex came back from 0-2 to win 3-2 winning the final 3 games 5-15, 6-11, 5-11.

Match 4: Noel Heaton 3-0 Kiefer Waite
In the first game it looked like Kiefer tried to just keep the ball in play for as long as possible and keep it away from his strength areas of his forehand volley and backhand front corners; unfortunately this strategy fell short and so did Kiefer dropping the first game 11-5. The second game was eerily similar, with Noel taking the ball much earlier than Kiefer was comfortable with and continued to attack well. 11-5 Noel. Going into the third it looked like Kiefer tried to change his strategy and go short more often but this resulted in short rallies with Noel feeding on the loose shots. 11-1 Noel.

Match 5: James Jelinski 3-1 Ryan Jadusingh
Yet another all Calgary battle in match 5 with two last minute reserves playing each other. The first game saw the players battle back and forth with tight shots and reasonable play with very few calls but games pulled away at the end stealing the first. The second game saw Ryan battle back and after James got it to 5-6 Ryan put him away winning 11-6. The final two games were absolute battles with both games going right down to the wire but in the end James pulled out the upset defeating Ryan 12-10 and 11-9 to win the first qualifying match 3-1.

Match 6: Brett Schille 3-0 Tim Landeryou
The third match on court B featured yet another top Calgary junior in Brett Schille against pro racquetball player and Squash Alberta President Tim Landeryou. Tim may spend more time on a racquetball court than on the squash court, but his athleticism and focus from racquetball make him a tough player to break down. The match started off tight, with Brett having a slight edge for the entire game. Brett 11-8. Although Tim managed to keep the rallies close and the scoreline reasonable, Brett's pace and consistency proved just a bit too much for Tim, as Brett closed out the next two games 11-7 and 11-7.

Match 7: Matthew Henderson 3-0 Ibrahim Elserafy
With Matt Henderson on reading week from school in Ontario he was hoping for a spot in the main draw but he would have to get through Edmonton local Ibrahim Elserafy. Ibrahim looked overmatched in the first game with Matt jumping out to a 8-1 lead and finishing the first game off quickly 11-3. Perhaps with the nerves out of the way Ibrahim looked to have a much better second game battling hard to force extra points but falling short. Matt 12-10. The third was again quite a quick match with Matt getting a 10-3 lead before Ibrahim fought off a couple of match balls but in the end the inevitable happened. Matt 11-5.

Match 8: Santiago Orozco 3-0 Ciaran Godfrey
The first game was over in a flash, with Ciaran making flurries of unforced errors trying to outshoot Santiago's speed. 11-2 Santiago. The second game proved to be a completely different story. Ciaran raced to a 6-1 lead, playing some silky smooth drop shots and forcing the Colombian to play at an uncomfortably high pace. However, Santiago started to make some incredible gets to keep the ball in play, working his way to game ball at 10-9. Facing down game ball, Ciaran stepped up and used all of his experience to hit a miraculous inch perfect frame winner off of the serve to force extra points. However, Santiago was able to hold out for the win using his incredible speed to take the game 12-10. The third began with the players exchanging points evenly, but Santiago pulled away at the later stages of the game closing out confidently at 11-7.


Match 9: Abdelrahman Dweek 3-2 Jake Hooker
The first match of the evening qualifying matches featured two players that know each other very well from their time at the Edgemont Club in Calgary. An absolute battle in the first game with some controversial calls but overall the refs kept the players in check and kept the game going. Dweek 14-16. Game two picked off right where game one ended with more fierce rallies with both players anticipating well clearly familiar with each others games. Jake 11-9. In game 3 it looked like Hooker was struggling slightly with something being off, after the 3rd Hooker requested a new ball, but after review request for new ball was denied. Dweek 11-6. The fourth saw Hooker fight back and force a fifth making relatively quick work. Jake 11-6. The final game it looked like Hooker was out of gas and Dweek fought through and ended up winning the long rallies and ultimately the game and match. Dweek 11-4.

Match 10: Noel Heaton 3-2 Alex Scherer
Two very evenly matched locals took to the court for match 10 of the day. The first two games looked like Alex and Noel were feeling each other out and they split the first two 11-5 one going to each of them. In the third game the intensity seemed to pick up with some more controversial calls on ‘lets’ this seems to build the intensity of Scherer, Noel takes the third game 11-9. The fourth game sees Alex storm back and jump out to a 9-4 lead before ultimately closing the game out 11-5. The final game was very tight with both players exchanging long rallies and points to 7-7 before Noel broke away and earns a spot in the main draw with an 11-7 win.

Match 11: Brett Schille 3-0 James Jelinski
After both James and Brett had relatively easy matches to get into the second round of qualifying – they were lined up for a spot in the main draw. James had his work cut out for him facing the #3 junior in the country. The skills of Schille really showed in the first game with him taking the game easily 11-2. The second game saw some of the jitters worked out of Jelinski and he put in a solid effort trying to extend rallies but the consistent play of Schille won him the game 11-7. The third was much like the first with Schille taking advantage of loose shots and playing at a much higher pace than Jelinksi. Schille 11-4.

Match 12: Matthew Henderson 3-2 Santiago Orozco
With Sanitago Orozco making the long trek from Colombia he was itching for a spot in the main draw however he learned quickly in the first game that he would have his work cut out for him if he was going to beat Henderson. With his incredible speed and amazing gets at both the front and back of the court Santiago was able to take the first game 11-9. In the second more unforced errors from Santiago and cleaner shots by Henderson led to a quick 11-2 victory. Refocused for the third Santiago came back and battled hard to fight off Henderson’s consistent play and win 11-9. The fourth was almost a mirror image of the 2nd game and saw Henderson make quick work of Santiago. Henderson 11-1. The fifth was shaping up to be a very tight match as there were long rallies and some amazing gets but unforced errors from Orozco gave Henderson a 9-2 lead and let him coast to an 11-6 victory.
