Aspin Kemp and Associates Pro Squash

It was raining in Charlottetown today but the sun was definitely shining on the squash courts at the University of Prince Edward Island.  There were some serious battles as players from Canada and around the world were vying to move into Thursday's quarterfinals and onward.

Interesting stories were certainly created in the aftermath of the Nash Cup in London as 10 players moved east to gain more ranking points and bragging rights .World Junior Champion, Egyptian  Mostafa Asal was matched up against this year's Canadian champion Andrew Schnell and Nick Sachvie who showed that he was in great form with his London quarterfinal match against Asal was pitted against former world #35 Henrik Mustonen from Finland who is coming back from over a year's absence from the tour. Both matches lived up to their billing but it was Mustonen's creativity and Asal's steadiness that carried the day.

 But the real stir was created early in the evening by Canadian Cameron Seth as he locked horns with the tournaments #1 seed, England's Charles Sharpe. They went toe to toe for 65 minutes and it was the young man from Toronto (ranked 100 spots lower) who claimed his best ever victory. on the PSA Tour.

 The squash fans from this part of the world have never witnessed this level of play before and are thirsty for more.
