McWIL REDECO Wroclaw Open 2012
19-22 Jan, Poland, $5k

22-Jan, Final:

[4] Peter Creed bt [3] Eddie Charlton   11/7, 12/10, 11/9

'Braveheart' Creed
takes Wroclaw title

Final day of the tournament with Peter Creed (who earlier won against nr 1 seeded Yann Perrin) and Eddie Charlton (who beat nr 2 seeded Bradley Hindle).

Creed "bought" hearts of audience during his quarterfinal match, when he came back from 0-5 in final set. People called him "small Peter with big hear" or even "Brave Heart".

He started final very well with 11-7 in first game. Charlton was making too many mistakes in that game. However he started to play match better in next one. Quite long game with lots of beautiful shots, actions with "flying Peter" finally ended with 12-10 , so it was 2-0.

Third game was very tight at the beginning, but in the middle Eddie lost his concept of game and Peter was up a few points all the time, up to 9-7. Charlton won two balls and it was 9-9. We expected him to take over this game, but Peter played perfect kill straight into nick in the first ball.
Matchball, long rally and Peter winning last ball, 11-9 this set and whole match 3-0!

This is his first PSA title and he was very "moved" after this last ball and also at the ending ceremony. He thanked his Mum and Dad who helped him with his career.

Top seeds Poleaxed in Poland
First match with nr 1 seeded Yann Perrin against Peter Creed ended up with surprise - we expected Yann to win , however it was not his day, and Peter was playing amazing shots, getting impossible balls.

A lot of wonderful rallies and finally 3-0 with relatively easy sets 11-5, 11-9, 11-4.

Second match with nr 2 seeded Bradley Hindle against Eddie Charlton was expected to be a real battle, but Charlton was definitely better today.

He won first set 11-5 and was leading 10-6, when Bradley decided to stop playing due to his injury not letting him play 100% of what he would like to play.

Final of the tournament with Peter Creed and Eddie Charlton will be start 7,30 pm.

20-Jan, Quarters:
Top four through to Wroclaw semis

Today we had the quarter-finals of the Wroclaw Open, with the top four seeded players all in action.

First match was easy (35min) win for French top seeded player Yann Perrin. Young Englishman Robert Downer had no chance against Yann this day.

Second one was a real battle of older , bigger and more experienced Ben Ford and younger, smaller Peter Creed, great match with lots of emotions.

Ford won first game after really long and tight game. Creed won next two and it looked like he took over the match. However fourth set was " point by point " up to 7-7 and then at the end of very long rally , Peter hit Ben into his leg that caused a very long break.

Ben asked for longer break to have short massage of his leg and it took something like 25 minutes break. Medial support helped Ben to get back on court and get back to the game. He won this set and it was 2-2.

Peter started last set very nervous, making easy mistakes while Ben was playing all right shots. 5-0 up and it looked like he is heading to an easy win in this game. Suddenly Peter started to play better and better. Lots of nice rallies, beautiful shots, few "flying" actions and he came back from this bad result into 7-7, then he had 10-8 and Ben saved first matchpoint, however Peter won next ball and whole match 3-2, 11-9 in the fifth.

In third match Eddie Charlton won 3-0 against Geoffrey Demont, however it was not that easy, especially in first set that was very tight (12-10). Second one was a bit easier and third one 11-9, however Eddie had 5 matchballs starting
from 10-4.

Last match with second seeded Bradley "professor" Hindle was relatively easy win for him against Ben Coleman 3-0.

This last name of Bradley was announced by audience yesterday during his match in 1st round against polish champion Wojtek Nowisz when he played like "professor". Every ball exactly to the right place - that's why people called him this way.

Today he also played all shots very precise and Ben had no concept how to beat him or at least could not realize it.

Tomorrow semifinals with Perrin playing Creed and Charlton playing Hindle, starting 8pm.

Salut Fram

Je me suis incliné en 3 jeux contre Eddie.

Plutôt satisfait de la façon dont j'ai joué, je bougeais bien à l'avant donc des points positifs à retenir.

C'est ce genre de match qu'il me faut pour reprendre confiance en mon jeu.

Yann est en demie, il n'a pas trop eu à forcer pour le moment et est donc en forme pour aller jusqu'au bout.

Retour à Aix pour une bonne semaine d'entraînement avant de partir en Inde dimanche.



19-Jan, Round One:
Seeds through to Wroclaw quarters

No big surprises today - all 4 seeded players qualified to quarterfinals.

Yann Perrin (nr 1) play against Declan James and it was really nice and very tight match. 3-0, however all sets really close.

Bradley Hindle (nr 2) played Wojtek Nowisz (polish champion 2008, 2009 and 2010) , but it was not a long story - Wojtek started with 2-0 up .... and that was it. 5-11, 2-11, 3-11.

Eddie Chartlon (nr 3) also played only 3 sets with Steve London (4,7,5).

Last of the "top-4" Peter Creed had a bit longer battle - 3-1 against qualifier Alex Ingham.

Perrin will play Robert Downer, who won against Adrian Dudzicki 3-0, Hindle will play Ben Coleman who won against Bart Ravelli 3-0, Charlton will play Geoffrey Demont who played 4 sets against Daniel West to finally win 3-1 and Creed will play Ben Ford, who won against another qualifier Frank Hartkoren 3-1.

No big surprises a sall Poles are out:-)

Maybe small surprise of Carsten Schoor beating Karmatullah Khan 3-2, after getting back from 0-2.

Evening - 2nd round

A lot of exciting matched in the 2nd round of qualification.
We started 7pm and 4th final qualification match ended appox 11:30pm!

Good 1st match between Alex Ingham and Martin Mosnik (3-2, 11-9 in the final for Ingham).

Very dramatic 2nd match of Dan West who came back from 1-2 down against Neeraj Aggraval, saved 2 matchballs in 5th to finally win 13-11.

3rd match won by Hartkoren (Holland) vs Moineau 3-1.

And 4th exciting match - Robert Downer (England) was leading 2-0 after relatively easy games, then his opponent Carsten Schoor (Germany) leveled for 2-2.

And in the final game German was leading - 5-0 and 10-5...


Downer saved 5 matchballs in a row (from 5-10) plus next one at 10-11, and had his matchball at 12-11, saved by Schoor for 12-12. Next two balls for Downer and finally 14-12 in 5th!
