Double joy for the Maliks as Wall comeback rocks Rory

Day Two of the Springfield Scottish Squash Open in Inverness saw the top seeds join the fray in the $12k PSA Challenger events, with quarter-final places on the line.

It was a good day for the Scottish women as Georgia Adderley and Alison Thomson both won through, Adderley in a comfortable three games, Thomson coming from a game down to beat the sole Egyptian in the draw.

Elsewhere in the women’s draw five English players progressed, led by top seed Julianne Courtice but the performance of the day was by teenager Torrie Malik, who got the better of second seed Rachael Chadwick in five see-saw games to reach her first ever quarter-final at this level.

Malik will play compatriot Alicia Mead, Courtice meets Adderley while Thomson will face off against fourth seeded Gina Kennedy with the English quintet completed by Grace Gear who will meet third seeded Frenchwoman Marie Stephan for a place in the last four.

There were two seeding upsets in the men’s draw – Torrie’s brother Curtis Malik equalling his best ever PSA performance as he took advantage of an injured Welshman Peter Creed, and England’s Nick Wall ending home interest as he came from two down to beat third seed Rory Stewart.

Wall will meet India’s seventh seeded Abhay Singh while Malik goes up against second seed Rui Soares of Portugal, both beating English opponents in tough encounters.

Top seeded Frenchman Sebastian Bonmalais finally took the steam out of Spaniard Sergio Garcia Pollan, and he will face one of two Czechs in the last eight in Viktor Brytus.

The other Czech is fourth seed Jakub Solnicky, who ousted home favourite Alasdair Prott in straight games and he now faces Wales’s Emyr Evans who beat compatriot Elliott Morris Devred.
