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.

What a well matched contest.  I must say at 15 all in the fourth it looked anybodys game with the increase of pace and pressure applied by both players. Sadly with the increase in speed came an increase in lets/reviews. I am of two minds whether the Review system and not convinced it worked any better, as it still left a lot of doubt in the players and spectators minds about the decisions made.  Critically, as usual, the let called for at 17/16 in the forth game went against Boswell.

This was an excellent match with tight length and great control with volleys from the centre court.

You could say Peter Barker took some unbelievable risks on crucial shots that paid  off making him the winner.
