[ Canadian Squash Classic Main Draw ]

[Preview][Report 1] [Report 2] [Report 3] [Report 4][Quarter-Finals] [Semis]

Toronto, Ontario – First round action on day one (Monday, January 8th) of the PACE Canadian Squash Classic confirmed Egypt’s pre-eminence position on the world squash stage.

Karim Darwish, (Egypt), seeded 8th for the tournament, dispatched 24 year old Montreal native, Shawn Delierre, with a textbook second and third game. Sport insiders felt it was a great opportunity for the young Canadian who earned his way into the main draw event yesterday (Sunday), beating American Chris Gordon.

Cairo native Wael El Hindi quickly sent Jean-Michel Arcucci back to France in a hasty 37 min, three game match.

Stewart Boswell (Aus) easily eliminated fellow Australian Dan Jenson in a 25 minute, no holds barred match, while 7th seed James Willstrop (Eng) beat 36 year old Alex Gough from Wales in a neatly contested 39 minute match.

Fourth seed Nick Matthews (Eng) was injured during the 4th game of his match with Egypt’s Hisham Ashour. Considered a serious ankle injury, tournament officials were waiting for hospital x-ray results to determine if the match continues later in the day or Matthew forfeits the match.

Action moves tomorrow (Tuesday) thru Friday to the glass court on the John Bassett Theatre stage at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
