09-Sep: Finals between a French and a Swiss, an English and a Belgium...

Ok, I'll give you a clue: the two men know each other for 15 years, that's right, Marche & Mueller, as for the girls, two of the nicest girls around - ok, that's tougher, as they are a few on this event, but it will be Gilis and Moverley tomorrow...

Defending champion Grégoire Marche booked his place in a third successive Nantes Open, final after he defeated Egypt’s Mazen Hesham to set up a final clash with Switzerland’s Nicolas Mueller - while Belgium’s Nele Gilis and England's Fiona Moverley also triumphed...

Marche went head-to-head in a high-octane encounter with Hesham which saw Les Machines de l'île turn into a cauldron of noise as the home fans got behind the French number one seed.

He saw a two-game lead cut in half by a resurgent Hesham but overturned four game balls in the fourth game to seal an 11-6, 7-11, 11-1, 14-12 victory that puts him one win away from a third straight title in Nantes.

Marche will take on Swiss World.30 Nicolas Mueller in the title decider after Mueller defeated England’s Ben Coleman to earn a place in his first Tour final since 2014.

Mueller, the Zurich-based 28-year-old, prevailed 11-5, 9-11, 11-6, 11-4 and he will look to claim a sixth successive victory over Marche in tomorrow’s final.

Meanwhile, Nele Gilis launched a superb comeback from two games down to beat top seed Millie Tomlinson, with a 7-11, 11-13, 11-6, 13-11, 11-3 triumph sending her into an eighth Tour final.

World No.27 Gilis looked like she was heading home after a virtuoso performance from Tomlinson saw her rise to a 2-0 advantage but Gilis refused to back down and stormed back to win three games without reply.

England’s Fiona Moverley stands between Gilis and the fifth title of her career, with the World No.24 from Hull seeing off Canada’s Hollie Naughton in straight games.

Naughton played some superb squash to defeat home favourite Coline Aumard in the previous round but Moverley played with unerring precision and confidence to record an 11-8, 11-5, 11-4 victory in just 24 minutes.
