KINGFISHER GRAND PRIX 2015 - WEEK 8 RESULTS

Week 8 Report

6 July 2015

Daniel Moses met Martin Gunn, who was still recovering from a weekend of competing at the Heritage Oil tournament - and this time the tables were turned and Daniel won in 3 straight games.

Roger Woolven-Allen and Rick Leachman held the longest rallies of the night in an epic close 5-set battle for a place in the final 8 of the main event.

In the consolation rounds it was a good night for the junior players as Joe Barraclough beat Melvyn Lovegrove in 3 straight games (12-10, 11-9, 11-9) and Katie Shepherd drew the crowd's applause as she scored a win against John Liddle, staging a comeback from 2 games down (11-9, 11-7) to take the next three (11-4, 11-7, 11-7).

Once again the main event saw a Moses-vs-Girdler final but this time it went to 5 sets.

Ian Girdler retains his place at the top and extends his lead over Hari Gehlot. Daniel Moses has climbed another 5 places into 8th position, now just behind Daniel McTiernan.
