Qualifying finals

Mike McCue (CAN) bt Micah Franklin (BER) 11-5, 11-3, 11-5 (30m)

Aurangzeb Mehmund (PAK) bt Matt Serediak (CAN) 3-11, 11-5, 11-6, 11-8 (55m)

The first few rallies were long and close but after Serediak got a 4-2 lead, he cruised for the rest of the game. Mehmund got frustrated towards the end and started to make mistakes. Serediak quickly closed it 11-3.
Mehmund started playing much more patiently in the second and lifting the ball higher. This resulted in a lot of long rallies and Serediak started to look slightly tired. Solid squash from Mehmund coupled with unforced errors from Serediak – game to Mehmund 11-5.
The third was close up to 5-5 after which Mehmund started to play more physically especially in the middle of the court. The Pakistani won the third quite comfortably 11-6.
The physical game worked for Mehmund also in the fourth in which he got a 8-2 lead fairly quickly. Serediak got back to 8-6 but the Pakistani was able to eventually win the game with a crosscourt nick 11-8 and take the match in four.
