ILT & COMMUNITY TRUST SOUTH 2019 SOUTHERN OPEN - Quarter-final results

Just when it looked as though the top four seeds would go safely through to tomorrow’s semifinals here at the ILT & Community Trust South 2019 Southern Open PSA in Invercargill, injury came into play in the final match of the night with second seed Christopher Binnie suffering a possible calf muscle tear.

First to take the court was top seed Henry Leung (HKG) against seventh seed Enzo Corigliano (FRA). The players hadn’t met before on the PSA circuit so it was new territory for them both with Leung looking very comfortable throughout the match despite Corigliano’s speed and agility around the court. Leung took the match in 3 sets to progress through to semi-finals tomorrow.

Next up was sixth seed Tang Ming Hong (HKG) against fellow countryman and third seed Chi Him Wong. Wong held a 5-1 win advantage and was in complete control of the match with the grueling rallies seeming to take a toll on Hong while Wong seemed to absorb the physicalness with ease, taking the match 3-0. Wong will face top seed Leung in tomorrow’s first semi-final at 5.30pm.

Fourth seed Evan Williams (NZL) faced fifth seed Sean Conroy (IRL) for a rematch of their first round battle last year. The first set began with both players trading point for point with Conroy looking determined to avenge his defeat last year, before Williams stretched out a lead and held on to take the first set 11-5. Williams started the second more aggressively, pushing up the court to take the ball early and force the errors from Conroy, taking the set 11-3. Conroy started stronger in the third, gaining a good lead before Williams clawed back the point to get to 10-9 before a No Let call took the game to tie-break. Williams scored the next point and then a loose shot by Conroy gave Williams a Stroke and the match.

The final match saw eighth seed Connor Sheen (ENG) taking on second seed Christopher Binnie (JAM). Sheen began very strongly, streaking to a 6-1 lead before Binnie dug deep to take nine points in a row to get set point. Sheen kept pushing, forcing three errors from Binnie to even the scores again and take the set to a tie-break. Binnie got the first advantage before Sheen was able to close out the set 13-11. To the dismay of everyone, Binnie suffered a calf muscle injury during the first rally of the second set and was unable to continue, giving Sheen a place in the semi-final where he will face New Zealand’s Evan Williams.

(1) Henry Leung (HKG) bt (7) Enzo Corigliano (FRA) 11-5, 11-8, 11-4 (30 minutes)

2018 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA - Final

2018 ILT & CTOS NZ SOUTHERN OPEN

Final Results

 

The 2018 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA final today saw Ivan Yuen succeed in his mission to win the Championship after missing out to Scotland’s Greg Lobban last year.

 

The match started with both Yuen and his opponent Rex Hedrick patiently rallying, waiting for the right ball to attack. Yuen was slightly more accurate, placing the ball tight and forcing loose ball from Hedrick.

The second saw a much more determined Hedrick, playing with more positivity and holding his shots at the front to send Yuen the wrong way. Both players were hunting the volley to up the pressure on the other, with Hedrick winning that battle in this set.

The third was a long, hard fought set, with both players working to increase the pressure, Yuen stepping it up a bit further at the end to win the tie-break and gain the one-set advantage.

Yuen again came out hard in the fourth, upping the pressure on Hedrick even further and gaining a strong lead. Hedrick would have covered several kilometres chasing Yuen’s shots down and beginning to come-back but it was not his day today as Yuen held his composure to secure the title.

 

Full Results:

(1) Ivan Yuen (MAS) bt (2) Rex Hedrick (AUS) 11-7, 7-11, 13-11, 11-8 (72 minutes)

2018 NZ SOUTHERN OPEN - Semi-final results

 

The ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA semi-finals went according to plan tonight in Invercargill, with both top seeds securing their spots in the final tomorrow.

 

Top seed Ivan Yuen started off very strongly against fourth seeded Angus Gillams, taking an early lead in the first set. Gillams fought back hard with some tight drops before placing one too low to give Yuen the set 11-8. Yuen again streaked to a quick lead in the second, with Gillams making a lot of errors. Gillams came out in the third playing a much more controlled game, applying pressure and reaping the rewards to take the set 11-4. Yuen was much more focused in the fourth, getting the lead early on and holding it to a three match-ball advantage. Gillams saved the first match-ball with an incredible cross court flick at the front, only for Yuen to seal the match with a cross-court nick on the return of serve.

 

Next up was the much anticipated all Australian match between second seed Rex Hedrick and third seed Josh Larkin. The local spectators knew from past years how both players are inclined towards long grueling rallies and they certainly didn’t disappoint tonight. Larkin began the match playing sharply and on form, moving Hedrick all around the court as he sought to get the ball beyond his reach, taking the set 11-6. Hedrick looked more in control in the second set, turning the tables and playing the ball from one corner to another, knowing how much work he needed to do to keep the ball beyond Larkin’s extremely flexible reach. Hedrick continued to apply pressure to a tiring Larkin in the third, taking a large lead before Larkin found his reserve tank and began to close back in. The fourth set saw Hedrick again streak out to a large lead, closing out the match and confirming his place tomorrow’s final against Yuen.

 

The final between Ivan Yuen (MAS) and Rex Hedrick (AUS) will play tomorrow at 3.00pm (local time) and is sure to be a hard fought battle with Yuen and Hedrick looking to secure their first Southern Open title after both having missed out in previous years – Yuen last year lost in the final to Scotland’s Greg Lobban, and Hedrick losing to Martin Knight in 2014 and being knocked out in the semis in 2016 and 2017.

 

 

Full Results:

(1) Ivan Yuen (MAS) bt (4) Angus Gillams (ENG) 11-8, 11-4, 4-11, 11-8 (42 minutes)

2018 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA - Quarter-final Results

SOUTHERN OPEN - Quarter-final results

 

It will be the top four seeds contesting the semi-finals of The ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open tomorrow as they all made their way through quarter-finals tonight safely.

 

First to take the court was top seed Ivan Yuen (MAS) against fifth seed Victor Crouin (FRA). The first two sets were closely contested with Yuen able to take them both and gain a two set advantage. Crouin (who has just been announced as one of eight players in the PSA and World Squash Federation’s SquashForward line-up) came back in the third, mixing it up a bit and forcing errors from Yuen, taking the set 11-7. Yuen returned in the fourth, much more in control of the rallies, closing out the match 3-1 to progress through to the semi-finals.

 

Evan Williams, the last New Zealand contender was up next facing fourth seed Angus Gillams (ENG). Williams got off to a great start, playing much more dynamically than on previous visits. With the first set to Williams, the crowd was hoping for him to make it two, but Gillams came out hard, applying more pressure and making Williams play a bit more defensively. The third set saw the players working hard for each point, with Gillams able to just sneak in 11-9. Gillams then continued upping his game, closing out the match 3-1 to make the semi-finals where he will now face top seed Yuen.

 

Australian training partners Josh Larkin (3) and Rhys Dowling (6) followed with an entertaining and fast-paced match. Both started the match hunting for an advantage over the other, with Larkin using his great retrieval skills to keep pushing the ball back at Dowling, eventually seeing errors creep into Dowlings game under the pressure. The third set came down to the wire, with Dowling equaling Larkin’s game-ball to force a tie-break, with Larkin having to dig deep to book his spot in the semi-finals tomorrow.

 

The final match saw eighth seed Addeen Idrakie (MAS) taking on second seed Rex Hedrick (AUS). Idrakie started well, moving Hedrick all around the court before Hedrick took more control of the rallies to pull out to a comfortable lead and take the set. Idrakie came back in the second set, moving to a three game-ball advantage at 10-7. Hedrick wasn’t having any of it however and worked hard to even the scores and then take the set 13-11. There was no stopping Hedrick from there and he will now face compatriot Josh Larkin in the semi-final tomorrow.

 

Full Results:

(1) Ivan Yuen (MAS) bt (5) Victor Crouin (FRA) 11-9, 11-8, 7-11, 11-6 (50 minutes)

2018 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA - Results from Round 1

The top 8 players have made it through the first round of The 2018 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open in relative comfort.

 

(1) Ivan Yuen (MAS) vs (Q) Asyraf Azan (MAS)

Yuen was very dominant in the first 2 sets, taking a quick lead in both and closing them out quickly. Asyraf came back hard in the third, giving everything he had to keep the match alive, taking it to a tie-break which Yuen had to really work to eventually take 14-12.

 

Darren Rahul Pragasam (MAS) vs (5) Victor Crouin (FRA)

Crouin also started strong, playing with great focus to take the first 2 sets. Pragasam came back to take the third, before Crouin upped the pressure in the fourth to close the match out 3-1.

 

(7) Evan Williams (NZL) vs Sean Conroy (IRL)

Conroy looked to be set to cause an upset, starting strong and taking the first set 11-6. Williams came back out on court with much more intensity to level the scores 1-1 and then gain a 2-1 lead. The fourth set was all Williams as he completely dominated, forcing errors from a frustrated Conroy and securing his spot in the quarter-finals.

 

(Q) Ryunosuke Tsukue (JPN) vs (4) Angus Gillams (ENG)

Gillams had to really work hard in this match, with Tsukue keeping it a very tight contest. The first set went to a tie-break after Tsukue staved off four game-balls to even the score. Gillams just edged in front 13-11. Gillams looked more in control of the second set, again gaining a four game-ball advantage which Tsukue fought hard to come back on but Gillams held on to take it 11-8. The third set saw Gillams up the pace to finish off the match.

 

(3) Josh Larkin (AUS) vs (Q) Velavan Senthilkumar (IND)

A battle of the two most deceptive players here, this was played at an intense pace, as both players sought to out-manoeuvre the other. Larkin was very accurate with his shots and held a 2-0 lead before Senthilkumar took a hard fought third set. Larkin was able to return in the fourth and take full control of the game and book his place in the quarter-finals.

 

(Q) Luke Jones (NZL) vs (6) Rhys Dowling (AUS)

Dowling started incredibly strong, streaking out to an 8-0 lead before Jones came alive and fought back to 7-8. Dowling was able to hold on to take the set 11-9. The second set saw Jones take the early lead before Dowling took eight points in a row to get game-ball, again closing the set out 11-9. Jones took another early lead in the third, but a focused Dowling proved too strong tonight, sealing the match in three sets.

 

 

(8) Addeen Idrakie (MAS) vs Joe Green (ENG)

Idrakie had a slow start which Green capitalised on to take the first set. Idrakie took a quick lead in the second and was able to convert this to even the set scores. He continued his momentum into the third and then the fourth sets to take the match 3-1.

 

(WC) Scott Galloway (NZL) vs (2) Rex Hedrick (AUS)

Galloway showed some great skills as he battled it out trying to move through to the next round, but Hedrick was just too good and was able to fend off the valiant efforts of Galloway in a three set match.

2016 ILT CTOS Southern Open PSA - Final Results

SOUTHERN OPEN – Final Results

 

The 2016 ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA final today saw Paul Coll succeed in his mission to win three in a row with win against Tsz Fung Yip of Hong Kong.

Despite Tsz Fung starting strong and taking an early lead in the first set, Coll was determined to earn points and began a focused battle to catch and pass Tsz Fung’s early lead with a straight run of points from 3-6 to take the set 11-6.

Coll maintained his momemntum in the second set and put in a very strong performance, dominating and not allowing Tsz Fung’s efforts to get back into the game.

The third set saw Coll take a quick lead and even match-ball before Tsz Fung decided to push even harder and a very tight battle of wills commenced with both players desperately searching for the set win, and plenty of lets called, Tsz Fung eventually sneaking the set 15-13.

Both players returned to the court clearly tiring but focused and seeking to push each other to the limits. This set saw great energy, athleticism and agility from both Coll and Tsz Fung, along with some great shots as they looked to earn every point. Eventually after a grueling 54 minutes Coll managed to close out the match 11-8.

SOUTHERN OPEN - Semi-final results

 

The ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open PSA semi-finals went according to plan tonight in Invercargill, with both top seeds securing their spots in the final tomorrow.

Top seed Paul Coll started off very strongly against third seeded Australian Rex Hedrick, taking the first set convincingly 11-4. Hedrick came back in the second set a bit stronger, using some better shot-play, and forcing the errors from Coll, just sneaking in to take the set 11-9. Coll refocused during the break and came back harder and more determined, flying around the court retrieving balls and using great decisions to take the third and fourth sets 11-4.

Seconded seed Tsz Fung Yip (HKG) took a quick lead in the first set before fourth seed Angus Gillams (ENG) began to edge back into the game with increased accuracy and fewer errors, Tsz Fung just taking it 11-9. The second set saw Tsz Fung play with much more precision and decisiveness in his shots, keeping Gillams off balance and out of position much of the set. Gillams started to turn the tables in the third set, edging to a slight lead and then maintaining patience to close out the set 11-9. It wasn’t quite enough however and Tsz Fung came back focused and with even more shot accuracy to take the fourth convincingly 11-2.

The final between Paul Coll (NZ) and Tsz Fung Yip (HKG) will play tomorrow at 3.30pm (local time)

2016 ILT CTOS Southern Open PSA - Round 2

SOUTHERN OPEN - Quarter-final results

 

The top four seeds have survived the quarter finals of The ILT & CTOS NZ Southern Open played tonight at Squashcity Invercargill with a crowd of spectators eager to view some intense squash, and the line-up of matches was sure to provide some excellent game-play.

 

First to take the court was top seed Paul Coll (NZ) against England’s Joshua Masters. The first set saw Coll forcing errors from Masters as he worked him around the court well with long hard rallies. Masters had a good start in the second set, pushing Coll to work harder as he kept the score even through to 6-6, and then Coll started to apply more pressure again forcing the errors from Masters. The third set was Coll’s for the taking with a very strong start that he maintained and built on to take the final set 11-1.

With both players having similar game styles, the match between Peter Creed (WAL) and Rex Hedrick (AUS) lived up to expectation with plenty of long, hard, fast paced rallies, with both players seeking to get the ball past their opponent and put them off balance. The first set went for a grueling 25 minutes with neither player showing any signs of slowing down in their race around the court, and some great sportsmanship displayed by Hedrick when a backswing let was denied to Creed and Hedrick said he felt a let should be played. Hedrick managed to take the set 11-7. An increase in unforced errors by Creed saw a much shorter second set, although no less fast paced, with Hedrick sealing the game at 11-2. The fast pace continued into the third set, with both players retrieving seemingly impossible balls, fighting hard to earn points, and Creed giving himself a pep-talk halfway through the set. Hedrick was able to hang on and took the set and the match 11-8.

Fourth seed Angus Gillams (ENG) looked to have his match against eighth seed James Huang (TAI) completely under control, dominating the court and working Huang into making errors throughout the first two sets. Gillams was attacking any loose balls, volleying to maintain the pressure on Huang. The third set started much tighter with Huang pushing Gillams to his backhand and errors began to creep into Gillams’ game as Huang controlled his own shots much better, managing to sneak the set in 12-10. Gillams came back much more focused in the fourth set and played with much more purpose and control again to take the match 11-3.

The final match of the evening saw second seed Tsz Fung Yip taking on Australian seventh seed Joshua Larkin in what was an exciting and entertaining match. Tsz Fung was able to pick up some great shots, with Larkin working hard all around the court and using his seemingly elastic arms to retrieve some balls well past, but Tsz Fung was able to close out more points and take the first two sets with relative ease. Larkin entered the third set clearly prepared to leave nothing out there and went after every ball with intense energy, speed, and agility, at times diving throughout the rally to retrieve balls and even playing a shot while on the ground, which saw a brief blood break when Larkin wounded his arm. On his return to the court he returned the serve of Tsz Fung with a crosscourt nick drop, however then served out and Tsz Fung closed out the match 11-8. The final rally was hard fought with neither player willing to stop trying, well worth a watch on the live-stream archive
