Australian Ryan Cuskelly celebrated the biggest win of his career at the BC Honda Open in Canada when he defeated Canadian opponent Shahier Razik in the final of the established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Jericho Tennis Club in Vancouver.
Cuskelly was leading 11-5, 11-9, 7-7 when Razik, the Canadian number one, walked off court after receiving a conduct stroke against him.
The 24-year-old from New South Wales had struggled through the quarter-finals against young Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar but was in superb touch in the semi-finals and final to claim the seventh title of his career, but the first since he took out the China Open two years ago.
"It was a tough week, especially in the quarter-finals where I was down 8-3 in the fifth against Abouelghar and I came back and won 12-10 to take the match," Cuskelly said.
"I just kept digging in and it paid off.
"I played very well in the semis against Joe Lee of England and I played my best squash in the final. It was unfortunate to finish the way it did in the third," added the New York-based Aussie.
"Razik got a couple of bad calls then a conduct stroke and then walked off court, so it was a pretty weird ending."
