2022 Canberra Open – Great Work Remi!

Our very own squash superstar Remi Young was the only Western Australian who competed in the 2022 Canberra Open over the weekend.

Remi won his first match on Friday in a close five-setter against Robert Palmer (8-11, 11-5, 17-15, 6-11, 11-9).  Remi fought hard in his second match on Saturday morning against 3rd seed, Dubai’s Sandeep Ramachandran who proved just too tough to beat (11-5, 11-8, 11-7).  Saturday afternoon’s match was another tough one with Remi going down (but not without a fight) against 11th seed, Victoria’s Dylan Molinaro (12-10, 11-4, 14-12).  “It was a tough match against Dylan – I just didn’t feel like i was playing my game, but it did highlight things I can improve on.

In the 13th/14th play off, Remi took down 20th seed, Victoria’s Corben White in another nail-biter five-setter (9-11, 11-5, 11-8, 6-11, 11-9). “My last match was tough but I’m glad I got through it playing some better squash”.

Again, GREAT work Remi, everyone in WA is so proud of you – you really held your own.
