Cricket Club 10k: Douglas Takes Victory On Return To Tour

Playing in his first event in 21 months, USA’s Andrew Douglas came through the field to win the Cricket Club 10k, as the only American in the tournament in Toronto.

The Challenger 10 level tournament was held at Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club and Douglas was one of just two non-Canadians in the draw, and the only American who travelled north of the border. He was also featuring for the first time on Tour since the Oregon Open in February 2020.

Thanks to his pegged ranking of 109, the American was the No.5 seed for the tournament, and received a bye through the opening round of the competition, before getting the better of Jayden Shortt inside 21 minutes.

He then downed No.4 seed Nick Sachvie in straight games to reach the semi-finals of the competition, where he came up against the unseeded James Flynn, who had knocked out former Canadian No.1 Shawn DeLierre en route to the last four.

That did not faze Douglas, who won 3-0 to book his place in the final, where he would then get the better of another higher seed. He downed No.3 seed Michael McCue in the final, to win his first title on Tour since the BTMI Barbados Open in 2018, doing so without dropping a game in the entire event.
