Milou and Iker conquer in
The 2017 Jersey Classic titles were captured by top seeds
Milou van der Heijden and Iker Pajares after they
completed four game wins in the finals at Jersey Squash and
Van der Heijden claimed her sixth career PSA
title as she beas Scottish qualifier Lisa Aitken. In control for
the first two games, Milou couldn’t contain a determined
fightback by Lisa in the third, but steadied to move ahead again
in the fourth.
fightback from Lisa saw he level at 9-all, but the final two
point went the Dutch number one’s way to seal the match.
“I think I played well in the first two games,” said a
"Lisa put me under a lot of pressure in the third and fourth, I
was glad to te able to finish it off in four.
“It’s been a really good tournament, Jersey, the club, the crowd
have all been great, although at times today I felt as though I
was playing a Jersey player!
“Looking forward to a good rest now, getting ready for the World
Games in July.”
Pajares took on second seed Jaymie Haycocks, 12
year his senior and with much more squash in his legs after
three five-game wins on the way to the final. That didn’t seem
to affect Jaymie in the first game though, as he stayed ahead
throughout to take the lead 11/9.
The young Spaniard took charge from the outset of the second
though, playing determined squash at a relentless pace, and the
Englishman had no answer as Pajares took the next three games
for the loss of a handful of points.
“Maybe I’ll try playing less games before the
final next time,” joked Jaymie, “but he played very well after
was delighted: “Over the moon to win a second title this
month,” he beamed, “I knew I had to make it hard for Jaymie at
the start, he had a lot of squash in his legs.
“After losing the first I really focused, tried to play fast and
low, and felt very confident in my game and my shots.
“Now it’s time for a rest before my next tournament in
Switzerland. It’s been a great event, thanks to Nick, Jersey
Squash and all the sponsors for putting it on - Jersey, the
Club, the Tournament, everything was perfect and I’ll be back!”
