Squash player puts up fight

EVANS Head's Ryan Cuskelly bowed out of the City of Joondalup Open squash tournament in Perth on Sunday, but not without a bloody good fight. The promising 19 year old, who remains on target to lower his world rankings by 40 in the month of May alone, blamed a brutal quarter-final encounter the night before playing 21-year old Sydney-sider Scott Arnold in the semi. Arnold went on to win the world-ranked open, beating top seeded Dutchman Dylan Bennett. In Cuskelly's quarter, the game lasted two hours, until 11pm. Cuskelly was down 10-9 in the fifth game but came back to win 13-11. "I felt sick afterwards, and couldn't eat. " It took a while to get to sleep, and I had to play Arnold in the semi-final at 3pm the next afternoon," Cuskelly said. "I'm just not use to backing up after a big game like that." Cuskelly will play a few more tournaments in Perth before returning home for a well-earned rest, prior to heading overseas later this year.
