Northerns PSA Satellite tournament results

The men’s finals of the Northerns PSA Satellite tournament saw last year’s runner-up Kelvin Ndhlovu take on Kundanji Kalengo, who due to only recently joining the PSA, had to qualify for the main draw. Both Zambian players had epic 5-setters in the semi-finals against eventual 3rd place Dewald van Niekerk (SACD) and Gary Wheadon (WP, 4th) respectively.

The pace and quality of the squash was relentless. Kelvin pulled ahead 1-0 but Kundanji came back to make it 1-1 and then edged ahead to 2-1. The 4th set was a short one where Kelvin fired in the winners and Kundanji seemed to be taking a breather, Kelvin taking it 11/2 to set up a decider. Kelvin eventually proved to be too strong and closed out the match 11/8 in the 5th with Kundanji a very tired man.

In the ladies’ final Lizelle Muller was just too strong for her SACD teammate Alexa Pienaar and took the match 3-1. Both players were seeded 5/8 but had little trouble reaching the finals without dropping a game. In the 3/4 playoff, Jenny Preece (CG) beat Northerns’ Helena Coetzee 3-1.

Sandile Masondo beat Jason Phillips in the men B-section final and in the C-section, youngster Jarrod Cousins beat Sifiso Musi in the final.

Here are the full results of the tournament: NSA PSA Closed Satellite tournament 2020.

Northerns PSA Satellite tournament

This weekend Northerns will host a PSA Challenger series satellite tournament at the Pretoria Country Club. Players get to earn PSA points that count towards their official world rankings. Play will start with play-offs for the A-section on Friday afternoon, followed by the first round later in the evening. Inbetween, the other sections will play their first rounds.

Some of the players to watch this weekend, are Kelvin Ndhlovu (Zambia), Gary Wheadon (WP), Dylan Groenewald (CG) and Dewald van Niekerk (SACD). Dewald has been playing some good squash in recent weeks, which earned him a 3rd place in the recent PSA Satellite tournament at Parkview.

In the ladies PSA section the 5/8 seedings of Alexa Pienaar (SACD) and Lizelle Muller (SACD) are probably not a fair reflection of their actual playing strength and they will set out to prove that against the likes of number 1 seed Bongi Seroto (CG) and 2 seed Jennifer Preece (CG).

Here are the full updated draws at 19h00 on Saturday: NSA PSA Closed Satellite tournament 2020
