Top Seeds To Contest London Open Final
Top seeds Stewart Boswell and Jonathan Kemp will contest the final of the Coronation London Open after dismissing their semi-final opponents in the $20,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its third year at the Cumberland Lawn Tennis & Squash Club in north London.
England's Jonathan Kemp, the defending champion from Halifax, needed four games to end compatriot Chris Ryder's run, beating the sixth seed from Leamington Spa 11-3, 8-11, 11-3, 12-10.
It was a powerful performance from the second-seeded left-hander who underwent hip surgery in July. Kemp is celebrating the 15th Tour final of his career and his third of the year.
Australian Stewart Boswell, the event favourite, earned his place in the final in straight games - but took 47 minutes to get the better of third-seeded Canadian Shahier Razik 11-2, 11-4, 11-4.
The Manchester-based 32-year-old former world No4, currently ranked 19, is marking his 34th Tour final - and looking to notch up his 20th title triumph.
