Chris Hanson’s $5, 000 PSA Colony Ford Lincoln NSA Open campaign is off to a winning start following an opening victory against Canadian wild card Cameron Seth Wednesday night at the National Squash Academy in Toronto.
Hanson, the top seed, now faces sixth-seeded Canadian Mike McCue in the quarterfinals at 7:30pm ET.
NSA Open’s Jamie Nicholls reports from Toronto: “Chris Hanson has been keeping a low profile all week—as the tournament’s No. 1 seed, he knows that fifteen other competitors are gunning for a shot at him. First up to the plate was wild card and Canadian Cameron Seth who is a notorious grinder and as mentally tough as they come.
“Hanson passed the first test of the week with a straight forward 3-0 victory over the former junior Canadian champion with the precision expected of a top 100 player—tight drives from everywhere on the court, thoughtful tactics and another gear when required on both defense and offense. Hanson advances to take on the home court favorite Mike McCue in the quarterfinals.”
