Top seed tumbles in B19 ...
Arnold van der Hars reports

At the Frans Otten Stadium in Amsterdam we had day three of the Dutch Junior Open 2010. The day ended with a big BBQ in the garden.

Before we could even think about the BBQ, we had an upset in the boys under 19 category. In the semi final between the two Egyptian compatriots, we have seen some good squash, lovely touches and a big mental game. Number one seed Karim Ali Fathy lost the first game 11-5, probably the nerves. He lost those nerves in the second: 9-11. The third games was for Moustafa Bayoumy (3/4) again and the fourth went to Karim. The decisive game took a while and after a total of 63 minutes of squash, the top seed was tumbled: 11-6 to Moustafa.

The other semi final was on the glass court also between local hero Rick Penders (3/4) and Englishman Robert Downer (2). Unfortunately for the Dutchman, he couldn't reach his normal level due to a minor injury. Robert Downer showed no mercy and went in straight games to the final: 11-6 11-9 11-4.

An all English final in the girls under 19 will be played on Finals Day. Both girls had lost no game on their route to the final. Top seed Millie Tomlinson had some trouble with Tesni Evans (5/8) from Wales: 11-7 11-5 11-7.
Emily Whitlock, second seed, had also a good warm up for the final against Columbian Catalina Pelaez (3/4): 11-8 11-3 11-8.

The two Egyptians needed only three gasmes in the quarters to get through, while Rick and Robert needed both a marathon match to get to the semis, both five games.

Arnold van der Hars reports

Day one at the Dutch Junior Open 2010 is finished, h hot and sweaty day for players, parents, coaches and crew. We saw some good squash and quality matches.

In the boys under 19 most of the top seeds got safely through the last 16, but three upsets were noted - Tom Dwyer (5/8) from England lost to Tarek Salah El Dein from Egypt in straight games, Konrad Tyma from Poland (9/16) lost to Taylor Tutrone also in straight games, and home player Marc ter Sluis created the third upset by beating Sebastia Munar Palmer (9/16) from Spain in five.

So the top four seeds: Karim Ali Fathy, Robert Downer, Rick Penders and Moustafa Bayoumy made it comfortably to the last 16.

In the girls under 19 there were also three upsets - Rebecca Quiney (9/16) from England beat Hannah Jane Davies (5/8) from Wales in three, Canadian Jennifer Pelletier had two upsets in a row: first by beating 5/8 seed Sandra Polak from Austria in three in the first round, and then beating Jade Thompson (9/16) from England in four games. Alexandra Sawin from the USA also had a pair of upsets, she beat Nanna Frederiksen (9/16) from Denmark in three games in the first round, and in the second round Alexandra needed four close games to beat 5/8 seed Brogan Lane from England.
