Sunday, 29 August 2010

Australian Geoffrey Davenport claimed a record-equalling fourth title in the 2010 World Masters Squash Championships, the 10th staging of the World Squash Federation event in Cologne, Germany.

The 52-year-old favourite and defending champion defeated Scotland's No3 seed Alan Thomson 11-9, 11-3, 11-8 in the final of the Men's Over-50 event. Davenport won the Over-45 World Masters title in 2003 and 2006.

It was legendary fellow Australian Heather McKay who became the first winner of four World Masters titles in 1995.

A second crown also goes to Australia after former World Open champion Vicki Cardwell, the top seed, beat second-seeded Scot Pauline Douglas 11-5, 11-7, 11-3 in the Women's Over-55 final.

England claimed six titles: Averil Murphy successfully defended her title in the Women's Over-60 event, beating Australia's No2 seed Marilyn Kennedy 11-9, 8-11, 6-11, 11-5, 11-4 in the final.

Top seed Mark Cowley, the Over-55 British Open champion, defeated fellow Englishman Peter Alexander 12-10, 11-8, 13-11 in the Men's Over-55 final.

In another all-English final, third seed Keith Jones beat outsider Peter Leary, a 9/16 seed, 11-4, 11-9, 11-9 in the Men's Over-60 final.

Chris Ansell, also a British Open champion in the category, battled to an 11-4, 16-18, 8-11, 11-8, 11-2 win over fourth-seeded South African Antony Michael Martin to take the Men's Over-65 final.

The 'oldest' title also went to England after top seed Malcolm Gilham overcame unseeded fellow countryman Raymond Rook 11-6, 11-2, 11-7 in the final of the Men's Over-75 championship.

And 54-year-old Julie Field successfully defended her Women's Over-50 title, beating second-seeded South African Lisa O'Grady 11-13, 11-4, 11-9, 11-4 in the final.

There was popular home success in two women's events: Favourite Sabine Schoene, a former world No6 from Munich, defeated Karen Meakins, from Barbados, 11-7, 11-8, 11-7 in the Women's Over-35 final - and fourth seed Simone Korell produced a surprise German win after beating New Zealand's third seed Judith Casbolt 11-9, 11-2, 11-7 in the Women's Over-40 event final.

The biggest shock in Cologne came in the Women's Over-45 event where unseeded South African Leora Greenwood battled through to the final where the 47-year-old beat Dutch opponent Bea de Dreu-Spitse 11-9, 11-3, 11-1 to take the title.

There was further unexpected South African success in the Women's Over-65 event when second seed Sheena Worwood beat England's Norma Fulling 9-11, 11-5, 11-8, 11-7 in the final.

In the Men's Over-70 final, Welshman Brian Phillips beat New Zealand's defending champion Barry Gardiner 12-10, 11-2, 11-9 to win his first World title.

And popular Irishman Derek Ryan, a fourth seed, secured his first World Masters title in the Men's Over-40 event after beating third-seeded Dutchman Lucas Buit 11-5, 11-3, 11-5 in the final.

(dsqv, 26 August 2010)

The German Squash Federation has evaluated the problems reported about the tournament and match schedules of the 10th World Masters Championships.

We would like to express our deepest concern on these problems and offer an apology to all participants of the World Championships as we are convinced that this never should have happened. We were sure that we had done our very best efforts to secure a smooth running of the tournament. The Organising Committee and the team of all volunteers have worked very hard in the last days to eliminate the problems.

As a consequence of the findings the German Squash Federation has decided to replace the tournament director Peter Köck. Alan Hathway will take over the position of tournament director with immediate effect.

“As tournament director of this greatest tournament existing Peter suffered heavy health problems recently but still was ambitious to run the tournament. Being the responsible Vice-President for Masters Squash of the German Squash Federation for so many years Peter Köck has done his utmost in the last two years of organisation to make the event a success and wanted to finish this job perfectly. We express our gratitude for his work and great contribution in so many years”, stated Wolfgang Bauriedel, President of the German Squash Federation and Honorary President of the Organising Committee of the World Championships.
