Aspin Cup Report

 

 

Report on the Quarterfinals:

It must have been a great summer's training for Cameron Seth as the PSA world #178 has definitely created a stir by defeating his second opponent ranked considerably higher.

 
His game of tight, consistent, patient play, along with winning backhand drops in the front of the court was a game that was just too much on the day for Danish star Kristian  Frost.
The most entertaining match was junior phenom Mostafa Asal overcoming the creative and aggressive style of Finn Henrik Mustonen. Without question this was great fun for the small but packed house on the #1 court of UPEI, as both players utilized all four corners from anywhere on the court with such an array of shots never seen before in this small province. Asal won the key points at the end of each game and after 43 minutes of great squash he walked off the victor.
Vikram Maholtra, the Trinity College graduate from India has one thing on his mind, win the Aspin Kemp and Assoc. Open. He met some early resistance from Swiss Reiko Peter as they split the first two games, but then Vikram's committment to get every ball and not make errors was too much for Reiko losing the final two games at 5 and 7.
Some of the most intense squash was saved for last. Second seed Alfredo Avila having beaten Mike McCue 3-0 the week before seemed to have the match under control after winning two games in just over 30 minutes and was leading in the third. But McCue dug in and came back to win it 11-9. A back and forth 4th game had the spectators on the edge of their seats hoping that their fellow Canadian would push it to the 5th game. With two game balls it did indeed it did look that way. But our speedy Mexican just didn't let it happen and after an hour of play and a 14-12 score he could now think ahead to the semi-finals.

Cameron Seth d. Kristian Frost 9-11, 11-1, 12-10, 11-3 (56 min)
