2013 Bluenose Squash Classic Lineup Set (Immediate Release: September 6, 2013)
Halifax, Nova Scotia - Preparations continue for the 2013 Bluenose Squash Classic – presented by Fiera Properties.
With just over one month until the start of play, the Professional Squash Association (PSA) has now finalized the field that will compete in the 8th Annual Bluenose Squash Classic.
Many of the players returning this year will be very familiar to the local squash community. Three of this year’s top 4 seeds have competed in multiple Bluenose events in the past. Daryl Selby, a finalist in the 2012 Bluenose Classic will headline this year’s draw as number one seed. Selby currenly maintains a world ranking of 13. The 3rd and 4th seeds are fan favorites Miguel Rodriguez and LJ Anjema respectively. Making his first trip to Halifax, and earning the 2nd seed is Alister Walker of Botswana who currently is ranked 15th in the world.
With the top four seeds all ranked between 13 and 18 in the world, we are likely to see some of the closest matches in Bluenose Classic History.
The 2013 field will be rounded out by Shawn Delierre, Campbell Grayson, Cesar Salazar, Shaun Le Roux, Martin Knight, Steven Finitsis, Eddie Charlton, Muhd Asyraf Azan, and four qualifiers to be determined.
