[Men's Draw]   [Women's Draw]
Christopher Gordon, playing out of the UK in the hotbet of pro squash PR, is used to having his efforts followed by the squash press, Ben Oliner labors in relative obscurity. Today, Oliner was on the verge of a big upset, standing one game up and on the verge in the second; but Gordon escaped on a close play and close game, recovered and advanced to the semi finals.

Meanwhile, Jamie Crombie, veteral pro and US Team member was upset by All-American college player, Gilly Lane, the #1 player at UPENN.

On the women's side, newly crowned US Women's Intercollegiate champ, Lily Lorentzen stopped Harvard grad Louisa Hall.

Young stars Meredeth Quick, Michelle Quibell, Preston Quick and Julian Illingworth all advanced.
