PSA Gauteng Open men’s first round results

Day 1 of the main draw for the Mens Balwin Assore Gauteng Open. The biggest upset of the evening was Ahmed Effat Ashoush beating the number 4 seed Matthew Serediak from Canada 3-2. Ashoush maintained a steady length and kept the ball tight forcing Serediak to go for early winners and making the errors.

The only other upset of the evening was first time campaigner Vincent Droesbeke (FRA) who totally out played and out ran Ben Coates (ENG). Droesbeke just seemed to glide around the court and totally out played Coates.

The last 16 sees 8 of these players coming from South Africa.

Tuesday 19 April sees the women kick off their event. Matches start at 16:00 at Parkview Squash Centre.
