Charlottesville Open Main Draw
South Africa’s Stephen Coppinger and Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly will contest the $35,000 U.S. Pro Series Charlottesville Open final Saturday evening at the McArthur Squash Center at Boar’s Head Resort in Virginia.
Coppinger, the tournament’s two seed, and eighth-seeded Cuskelly both advanced through Friday’s semifinals in three games to reach the final.
Cuskelly held off Egyptian Harvard graduate Ali Farag in his semifinal, 11-7, 11-9, 11-8, in forty-one minutes, after both players endured grueling five-game quarterfinals Thursday night. Farag had upset top-seeded world No. 111 Karim Abdel Gawad to reach the semifinals Thursday night.
Coppinger, world No. 14, needed over an hour to dispatch unseeded New Zealander Campbell Grayson 11-9, 11-8, 11-5.
The final will be the fourth time Coppinger and Cuskelly have met on tour, with Coppinger having won all three previous encounters.
