Fernandes dominates…As many who have been following events over the past few days would know, Guyana has taken somewhat of a beating on Day Two of the ongoing Pan-American Games on August 31, 2018. The action is on at the Sound Squash Club in the Cayman Islands, as Guyana aims to qualify for participation in the Pan-American Games to be held in 2019 in Peru.Out of Guyana’s lonely depths of despair there emerged light at the end of the tunnel, as her leading squash player, Nicolette Fernandes, crafted a name for herself by dominating her opponents. Currently ranked 73rd in the world and 39th in the World Series, Fernandes is the recipient of a gold medal at the 2006 Central American and Caribbean Games, which is a major boost for Guyana. Everyone expected her to dominate when she arrived.In the first match of the day, Guyana’s ladies team slumped to a 1-2 defeat, as the lone winner of that match was Nicolette Fernandes, who defeated Catalina Pelaez (Ranked 72nd) 11-8, 11-6, 12-10, and made known why she is one of the best there is in the game of squash. Mary Fung-A-Fat and Ashley Khalil were not as lucky, losing to Laura Tovar and Maria Paula Tovar 4-11, 7-11, 4-11; and 7-11, 4-11, 2-11 respectively.The men’s team had similar misfortunes as their female counterparts, recording their second defeat of the tournament, this time to El Salvador 0-2. Sunil Seth lost to Israel Abrego 6-11, 3-11, 7-11; and Richard Chin lost to Ernesto Molina 11-6, 6-11, 9-11 and 7-11.Being so defeated on only Day Two of the Pan-American Games tournament, Guyana will have to get her act together and hit back if she aims to qualify.
