The North Coast Open Championships wrapped up this afternoon with two entertaining finals.
The Women’s Open Final between Tamika Saxby AUS and Sunayna Kuruvilla IND saw Saxby dominate from the front with controlled tight drives and well placed shots to the high court as she forced Kuruvilla to defend early. With a two games lead Saxby stepped controlled the pace, using the high ball with precision placements, nullifying Kuruvilla’s efforts of getting into the game. Saxby closed out the match in three to retain the North Coast Title she won in 2016 and was pleased with her efforts.

Player Comments
After the match  Tamika stated “ pleased with how I hit the ball today and tried to keep it away from Sunayna. Sunayna will definitely be one to watch but really happy with how I played today and win here at home.”

Men’s Open Final

The Men’s Final between No 3 seed Dimitri Steinmann SUI and Qualifier Abhay Singh IND saw Dimitri apply some tight drives to the forehand court forcing Abhay to defend early in the opening game to take the points and go one up.  Dimitri raced away in the second game as Abhay appeared to struggle to find his rhythm and put any pressure on Dimitri. Down two nil, Abhay rallied better in the third but was unable to reproduce the form he wanted from his semi-final on Saturday going down in straight games. The win in the North Coast Open provided Dimitri with back to back titles having won the Tara Volkswagen Bega Open last weekend.

 Dimitri stated. “Pleased to win today as I was feeling good coming into the match. Enjoyed playing here in Coffs Harbour and hope to be back next year”

Report

  1. Rhys Dowling AUS looked sharpe against Amaad Fareed PAK holding front position for the majority of the first game. He continued to control the pace and appeared to only get better as the match progressed to close it out in straight games.

The amazing run by Qualifier Abhay Singh India continued this morning as he methodically wore down Solayman Nowrozi Australia after a tense first game won in a tie break before closing out the next two games to win in 3.

The next upset No 2 seed Matthew Hopkins AUS was unable to win the vital points in the opening two games against Belguim’sJoeri Hapers the number 8 seed who won the big points to close out the match and move into the semi-finals in straight games..

Player Comments
Rhys stated afterwards “ went into the match pretty nervous because Amaad is a good player. I felt comfortable throughout the match though and happy to get through in 3.

 Player Comments

After first match Tamika Saxby No 1 seed indicated “was good to get the win, happy with how the match went. For me was first match so nice to get the bugs out before semi-finals this afternoon”

NORTH COAST OPEN SEMI FINALS

Men’s Semi-Finals

  1. Rhys Dowling AUS lost Q Abhay Singh IND 6/11 5/11 12/10 11/9 11/8 (53M)
  2. Joeri Hapers BEL lost (3) Dimitri Steinmann SUI 9/11 11/6 11/2 12/10 (40M)Men’s Report

The match spectators had been waiting for proved to be worth it as Rhys Dowling AUS opened strongly taking the ball early and not allowing Abhay Singh India to settle. Rhys went out to a 2-0 lead and held  match ball at 10-7 in the third before Abhay withstood the pressure to draw level at 10-10 and take the game to get back into the match. It proved to be a turning point as he got the better of most of the rallies due to Rhys’s shift of momentum which saw the fourth game to Abhay to level at 2-2. The deciding game was level pegging but Abhay held his nerve to the end to deny the No 1 seed a spot in the final.

 Abhay came into the  North Coast Open as a Qualifier and has shown a tenacity to overcome his higher ranked players for a spot in tomorrow’s first PSA final which should prove to be a cracker match against Dimitri Steinman Switzerland.

 Dimitri Steinmann continued his good form with a win against Joeri Hapers of Belguim. Little separated the players early as Hapers took the first but Steinmann raised his efforts to take the next three games, the fourth in a tie break to move into his second consecutive final on the Squash Australia Tour having won at Bega the previous week.

Player Comments

Abhay  stated “ I felt flat at first and being down two games realised I went into the match with no real game plan. When down 10-7 I got to 10-10 and won the game. I started to sort it out from there an happy to be through to my first PSA final”

Dimitri summed up his  match “ I felt good but struggled a bit in the opening game but came out on top in the fourth” Thinking of the final Dimitri stated “have played Abhay once before 12 months ago which I won so hoping to repeat that in the final tomorrow.

 Women’s Report

Tamika Saxby Australia proved too steady for Yura Choi Korea establishing control from the front to take the first two games. Yura made a spirited fightback in the third but found the depth of Tamika’s shots hard to counter with Tamika wrapping up the match in three games.

 Sunayna Kuruvilla is playing in her first PSA event and is through to her first final after a tight struggle against the No 2 seed Lisa Camilleri Australia.

Player Comments

After the match Tamika stated “ felt good, worked my way into the match finding my length. Happy to win in 3 in semi-final. Look forward to final tomorrow and feeling confident to play well.”

Sunayna Kuruvilla is through to her first PSA final and summed up her win over No 2 seed Lisa Camilleri Australia. “It was a tough match. I needed to focus on hitting the all as I had nothing to lose. When down 2-1 I had to believe in myself and didn’t get rattled by the situation”

Happy to be through to the next round this afternoon.
