Qualifier Phillips reaches semis (photo:©2006 AIS)

David Phillips had a relatively easy 3/0 win over Scott Arnold tonight here in Ottawa.  Phillips won 11-4,11-5,11-5.

Bradley Ball & Eric Galvez also had 3/0 victories.

Undoubtedly the match of the night was between Shawn Delliere & hometown boy Robin Clarke.  Robin looked nervous in the first game being very tentative with his drops resulting in him clipping the tin on numerous occasions giving Shawn the first game.  In the second Robin settled into his game, playing patiently waiting for his opportunity to take the ball in short which paid off resulting in him leveling the match.  The third game saw Shawn take advantage of loose play by Robin, hitting some great winners to take a 2-1 lead. In the 4th game Robin took a 9-6 lead with the hometown crowd definitely behind him.  All credit to Shawn who played some great attacking squash to pull level.  Both players traded winners from that point on, Shawn finally taking the match after 71 minutes.
