Squash Aust media report on ISS Canary Wharf quarter final match results.
"Australia’s Stewart Boswell suffered a heartbreaking loss to English rival Peter Barker in the quarter-finals of the Canary Wharf Classic squash tournament in London on Wednesday.
Boswell took the first game against the fourth seeded Englishman, dropped the next two then lost the fourth in an extended tiebreak, Barker clinching the match 8-11, 11-4, 11-7, 17-15 in a shade under 90 minutes.
The 32-year-old from Canberra was left ruing his lost opportunities.
“I started off really well but in the second and third I fell into a bit of a hole,” he said later.
“In the fourth I got so many chances to close it – I needed to take them.
“I’m very disappointed as I’m working very hard to winning against those top guys.
“I need to take those chances as they are not going to be there forever.”
Barker faces second seeded countryman James Willstrop, with the winner to play either world number one Nick Matthew or Frenchman Gregory Gaultier.
