Top seed Larkin wins Inno Wood title

 It was an enthrilling final today played between Australian Joshua Larkin and Chi Him Wong.

After a brilliant start from Larkin, Him Wong had to dig deep to recover from a 2-0 deficit. But the Hong Kong Chinese managed once again to go over the full distance.

In a close fifth game, Larkin was able to produce always a small lead.

This lasted until the very end when Larkin was up with matchball and took his first chance to close out and win the PSA Inno Wood title.

A big thank you to both players, who showed a packing battle on court in front of all the organisers, visitors and European juniors.

Now the Squash-Festival goes on with the already started European Under 19 Junior Championships ...

18-Mar, Semis:
Top seeds through to final in Kriens

The first semifinal was a affair on very fast pace. Both players tried to bring the opponent out of position with low kills and hard hitting.

But Josh Larkin never seemed to get out of his body control and brought back almost every ball. In the end Daniel Mekbib looked a bit flat and his shot quality was not good enough anymore.

The second semifinal was from the beginning hard fought. Both Chi Him Wong and Edmon Lopez Moller gave everything they had, until it went to the very end of the fifth game.

As he did yesterday, Him Wong managed to get a small lead and closed out the very tight match 11-9.

So tomorrow the final now Joshua Larkin against Chi Him Wong, so all according to the seedings.

The organisation and the European Juniors, who arrived today, will watch the final curiously.

17-Mar, Round One & Quarters:
Qualifier Mekbib makes the semis

It was a busy day in Kriens with two rounds which saw the semi-finalists decided.

In Round One six of the seeded players made it through, in addition to qualifiers Daniel Mekbib and Dimitri Steinmann.

In the evening quarter-finals Mekbib continued his to beat Beni Fischer in four to set up a meeting with top seed Josh Larkin.  Steinmann just lost out in a five-setter against second seed Chi Him Wong, who now meets third seed Edmon Lopez Moller.

The last match of the day between Chi and Steinmann was a real nail-biter. With the crowd behind him Steinmann pushed until the very end of the deciding fifth game against Chi Him Wong, but did not succeed in producing another upset. Him Wong carried the very close match away 12-10 in the tiebreak.

16-Mar, Qualifying Finals:

Qualifiers are decided as all winners come through in three games.

Daniel Mekbib
had only to fight hard in the last game, but still managed to bring the victory home with a 15-13 tiebreak win.

Jakob Dirnberger wasn't able to keep up the pace of Peruvanian Andres Duany, as well as Christoph Zust against in form Dimitri Steinmann.

In the last match of the day we saw Englishman Robert Dadds winning in good shape against local player Alex Imhof.

Tomorrow is up a very intense day as there is a double round on schedule. So we will know tomorrow who is going to be in the Inno Wood Semis.

15-Mar, Qualifying Round One:

One big upset today as Local Spot receiver Alex Imhof takes out Remo Handl in five games. After being two-love up, Handl managed to fight two games back, before eventually losing the fifht pretty clear.

In the other matches everything went according to the seedings. Jan Kurzmeyer and Cedric Kuchen were the only one's who could take one game of their opponents. The other matches were all a pretty clear affairs.

Tomorrow's qualification finals will see Swiss youngstar Luca Wilhelmi taking on Daniel Mekbib.

Jakob Dirnberger will have to fight hard to retain his seeding and win against good playing Peruvian Andres Duany. In an all Swiss final, Dimitri Steinmann is up against Christoph Zust.

And the last match of the day sees the winner of the day, Alex Imhof against Englishman Robert Dadds.
