54 players were competing in 5 categories. For the first time, the Ettelbruck Squash Open was a WISPA Challenger tournament, counting for the women’s world ranking.
8 women competed in this draw, and Ivy Pochoda (USA) beat Orla Noom from the Netherlands in a very tense and hard fought final. The game ended 3-2 in favor for Ivy. Congratulations!
The women’s B-field was won by Angélique Wiertz, who beat Jutta Phillipps in straight sets. After being on the edge of losing against our Nathan Sneyd, Raj Nanda beat Marc Burke 3-0 in the Men’s A-final. The Men B tournament was dominated by Tony Felfel from the Czech Republic. Let’s hope he fixes his shoe-problems soon… Finally in the Men CD we saw Keith Darlington cruise into the final, were he beat Renaud Parentelli 3-2.
Thanks again to all the participants. Squash Club Ettelbruck hopes that you all had a great weekend, and that you come back next year…
