2. BAILEY GETS “FOG CITY” WIN There wasn’t any fog in San Francisco the
weekend that the WISPA tour came to town. Amidst brilliant blue skies
in San Francisco, The final event of the WISPA tour four-week Americas
swing was the San Francisco International Challenge. Tania Bailey took
the prize over Holland’s Vanessa Atkinson. The event featured some great
squash from Bailey, Atkinson, and Natalie Grinham. Plans are already being
made in San Francisco for an expanded WISPA event next year. You can get
a recap of the event by reading the daily tournament reporting at http://www.squashtalk.com/html/news/bay2000draw.htm.

3. SUPER SERIES FINALS The Equitable Life Super Series Finals gets underway
Monday June 5 in Central London. As one of only two major international
events in the UK, this eight-man event will garner a lot of attention.
All of the top players have particular motivation this time around. Peter
Nicol want to show he can continue his three-tourney streak. Jonathon
Power will want to reestablish his claim to number one. Simon Parke and
Ahmed Barada have both been runner-up at this event: they will want to
do better. Martin Heath wants to show his showing in New York in January
was for real. Johnson, Hill, and Evans will want to show they belong here.
And SquashTalk will be there all the way. The Super Series Final is previewed
by Martin Bronstein on Squashtalk. Read it and follow the daily event
coverage at http://www.squashtalk.com/superseries2000. You will find the
historical results, player profiles, the draw, last years daily reporting
by Bronstein, and more.

and a dream, continues his quest to produce squash videos that will engage
squash player and non squash player alike. The accolades for his TOC productions
keep arriving. Here is a small sample: “…without a doubt, these are
the best squash videos ever produced to date. The colours are brilliant.
You have the feeling you are very close to the action, like you were there.
I’ll continue to watch out for new productions from Jean Delierre and
will not hesitate to recommend to my friends…” “De Lierre … has stepped
up to the seemingly daunting challenge of presenting Squash in an entertainment
quality package, i.e. with multiple camera angles, color commentary AND
the very important aspect of humanizing the players. This humanizing element,
if I may refer to it that way, captures the players expressions and emotions
which connect the spectator more with how the players feel in there. He
mixes inside camera work with closeups and slow motion too… “Hats Off”
to this pioneer who may single handedly get the sport of Squash into a
presentable TV entertainment package that can be sold to the public, and
significant sponsors.” De Lierre will produce full coverage of the Super
Series Finals next week. Through next friday, these will be available
in a special pre-production package, that you can obtain at http://www.squashtalk.com/videos/superseries

5. World Champion Challenge Postponed. The World Championship Challenge
event mentioned in the last newsletter, featuring Sarah Fitz-Gerald head-to-head
with Cassie Campion, will be postponed indefinitely.

6. FINAL NORTH AMERICAN PRO RANKINGS The North American “PSA Challenger”
tour this winter comprised fourteen separate events. The complete results
for the tour can be found at http://www.squashtalk.com/psachallenger.
The final rankings for the 99-2000 season have now been compiled and can
also be found online at the same web location. Two sets of rankings were
produced: One comprising specifically the results of the Challenger tour.
#1 ranking was earned by Angus Kirkland, with Clive Leach at #2. The second
set of rankings comprised the overall record of North and Central Americans
worldwide. #1 ranking was earned by Jonathon Power with Graham Ryding
at #2. Kirkland, who has been the head pro for the past five years at
the Harvard Club in Boston, will be returning to the UK to continue his
studies. Kirkland, who has been instrumental in growth of junior squash
in New England, was recently honored in Boston with the creation of the
“Kirkland Cup” to be awarded annually for contributions to Junior Squash
in Massachusetts. Kirkland was also the inaugural recipient.
