Sachvie Wins On Home Soil

Canada’s Nick Sachvie has claimed the Black Knight Court Classic title, winning on home soil. He defeated compatriot George Crowne in the final to go one better than he did at this event last season. 

His week on home soil started with a bye through the opening round, before he then got the better of Colombia’s Santiago Orozco in the last 16. He got the better of the first ofthree compatriots, in No.6 seed Cory McCartney, to make it through to the semi-finals.

Sachvie then took down No.3 seed Salah Eltorgman in straight games in the semi-finals, before coming up against Crowne in the final on Saturday evening. The pair had previously met once before, in the quarter finals of the Oxford Properties Canadian Senior Championships last year, with the 30-year-old winning that one 3-1.

He got the job done in a more convincing fashion in the final at the Club at White Oaks, winning in straight games. The first two games were tight though, with Sachvie claiming both by an 11-9 scoreline, but he went on to win the third 11-5 to come through the tournament without dropping a game. More importantly for Sachvie, to claim a victory on home soil on Tour.
