22-Mar, Finals:
Swiss Takes Swiss

The Swiss Open started in 1974 and been run in the same club for the last 36 years and the nearest any Swiss has been to the title were Agnes Muller in 2000 and Lars Harms in 2001, both reaching the final – that is until today…

Nicolas Mueller proved too strong for Eddie Charlton and this popular young man went on to take the title in front of a packed home crowd at Geneva Squash Club.

This win now gives Nicolas four back to back PSA wins and he looks likely to continue his climb up the world rankings.

France's Camille Serme took the ladies title with a superb example of how to use a drop shot, beating Nicolette Fernandes in what was the best ladies' final we have seen in years. The match deciding point was at one game all and 12 all in the second, when Nicolette made a great opening and drove the ball into the tin. From that moment on the devastating short game of Camille took its toll.

21-Mar, Semis:
Second seeds fall in Geneva

England's Eddie Charlton lines up to play home favourite Nicolas Mueller  after a tough semi final match beating second seed Aqeel Rehman in five games.

Aqeel had the fresher legs after receiving a walk over in the quarter finals and this showed when he took the second 13/11 and the third 11/2 but Eddie worked Aqueel hard and somehow managed to stay in the match to take his place in the final.

Guyana's Nicolette Fernandes beat women's number two seed Orla Noom in a 3/0 sprint to the final where she will play Camille Serme, who beat the tired Carla Khan who had nothing left after beating the top seed seed in a gruelling quarter final.

21-Mar, Quarters:

Comeback Queens Carla & Nicolette

Two players making welcome returns after extended injury layoffs, Carla Khan and Nicolette Fernandes both continued to upset the seedings in the women's event. Khan came from 2/1 down to oust top seed Manuela Manetta in the quarter-finals, while Fernandes overcame fourth seed Celia Allamargot in four games.

20-Mar, Round One:
Two seeds fall at the first hurdle

Nicolas Mueller moves on to the next stage of his attempt to become the first Swiss to win the national title by beating his fellow country man Peter Reiko, who put up a brave fight in the first very fast set before succumbing to the pressure of the number 1 seed.

France's Joan Lezard, the no. 3 seed, lost to English qualifier Stephen Siviter in a tight five set match. Both players where playing good tight squash but the tenacity of Stephen put enough pressure on Joan to force the errors at the critical times.

Finn Matius Tuomi was too strong for the number 7 seed Issa Kamara, winning for the loss of only 7 points.

Number two seed Aqeel Rehman escaped a strong challenge from Alex Ingham to win his match in a thrilling five setter.

Swiss top seed for Swiss Open

Nicolas Mueller, the 19 year old Swiss Champion from Winterthur ,takes the top seed position in the Guardian Wealth Management 36th Swiss Open. Nicolas who is progressing steadily up the world rankings has reached his careers highest at 116 could be the first ever Swiss to take the title. He was the European junior champion in 2007 and is certainly no stranger to winning.

The ladies event has once again attracted a strong entry with Manuela Manetta world ranked 36 from Italy hoping to continue her run of victories but will have stiff competition from world ranked Emma Beddoes from England, Orla Noom ( WR 39) from Holland and the rapidly improving Camille Serne (WR 43) from France.

This year has seen a huge entry for both events which might be due to the change of format in the Men's event from a 32 draw to a 16 draw and due to boom in the popularity of our sport.

After 36 years of organising this event the tournament directors are delighted with the support from the players.
