Overview

Men's Event

Mohd Syafiq Kamal bridged a gap of over 30 World Ranking places to defeat top seed and title favourite Addeen Idrakie in the quarter-final of the Malaysian Tour Squash VIII, PSA M5 tournament.

The two traded a multitude of high-octane blows throughout the early stages of the match with the encounter finely poised at a game each heading into the third.

From there though, Kamal pulled away to open up an 11-9, 3-11, 11-9, 11-7 victory, reaching only his second ever PSA World Tour semi-final in the process.

He will duke it out with England’s Adam Murrills for a place in the final after the number three seed beat wildcard Bryan Lim Tze Kang in a straightforward 3-0 triumph.

Elsewhere, Valentino Bon Jovi Bong withstood an onslaught from surprise package Jaejin Yoo to reach the next round and he will line up against Chi Him Wong in the semi-final after the 21-year-old from Hong Kong saw off Ravi Dixit in three.

Women's Event

The top four seeded players will contest the semi-final spots in the Malaysian Tour Squash VIII, PSA W5 event after they recorded relatively comfortable victories over their unseeded counterparts.

Teh Min Jie overcame Noor Shadira in her match after a good start enabled her to build up a two-game advantage.

Shadira recovered well to claw a game back in the third but top seed Min Jie redoubled her efforts in the next game to wrap up an 11-5, 11-5, 12-14, 11-3 triumph to ensure that she will compete in the last four.

Her semi-final opponent, Rachel Arnold, achieved her place there after recovering from a 1-0 deficit to beat Aika Azman in four.

Sarah Cardwell remains on course for second successive PSA World Tour title after she came through a four-game battle with Sivasangari Subramaniam. Her reward is a semi-final matchup with Vanessa Raj who is looking to reach a fourth final on the 2015 instalment of the Malaysian Tour.
