The crowd enjoyed an exhibition match of former top 10 players between Joe Kneipp and Simon Parke. Joe won 2/1 after some very entertaining rallies.

Women's final was expected to be close and you can't get it any closer.

Lucie Fialova beat Olga Ertlova 10/12 14/12 11/6 10/12 12/10 in the longest match of the tournament which lasted for 93 minutes.

Olga was able to save 3 matchballs in the fourth game when she came back from 7/10 to 12/10. The fifth was close all the way to 7/7.

Olga won next two points to get 9/7 but Lucie won next three rallies to earn 4th matchball. Olga saved it with perfect backhand drop.

Lucie got her 5th matchball at 11/10 and this time she used it when Olga did not volley her serve which died in the back corner.

Men's final was a repeat of last year with the same result. Petr Martin fought well but Jan Koukal proved he is still by far the best player of our country and won his 12th national title.
