RESULTS: PSA Challenger 10 TAQA Bankers Hall Club Pro Am,
 Leo Au (HKG) bt Raphael Kandra (GER) 11-5,
9-11, 4-11, 11-5, 11-3 (74m)
survived a thrilling five-game battle against Germany's
Raphael Kandra in the final of the TAQA Bankers Hall Club
Pro Am in Canada to become the first Hong Kong winner of the
PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event celebrating its
11th year at the Bankers Hall Club in Calgary.
"In front of another standing room only crowd, Au produced a
gritty at times display of squash which saw the match ebb and
flow with each player seemingly taking control only to have it
removed from them," explained tournament promoter Bob
Ballinger, the club's Head Squash Professional.
"Despite the fact that four of the five games score-wise were
not close, do not be fooled - as the rallies were long with
great exchanges by both players using all areas of the court in
particular - each of them showcasing their amazing hands and
front court game.
"After 74 minutes of great all around squash, Au prevailed 11-5,
9-11, 4-11, 11-5, 11-3."
The triumph marks 22-year-old world No47 Au's fourth PSA Tour
"So another PSA event and amateur event is over for another
year," added Ballinger. "Great crowds throughout the week for
both components of the tournament simply enhanced what this
event has evolved to become over the years.
"We look forward to January 2014 and doing it all over again!"
