Swiss fall in Sekisui Qualifying
It was not a good day for the Swiss as they all lost in
qualification except Cedric Kuchen, who won his all-Swiss match
against Yannick Lindemann.
They all fought hard, but the professionals were too strong
today. So Cedric will try to get a fifth Swiss player into the
main draw as he takes on Jerome Dadot tomorrow.

Iím very happy to win my
match today. Courts are very hot and the adaptation was

I played not bad, especially for my first PSA tournament
ever. Unfortunately I was not that ready mentally
because of the organisation of the tournament and my
exams. But it was a good experience and Iím looking
forward to further events to play.
happy to be in Switzerland for the second time in a
month. The tournament is well organised and I thank
everybody fort the good atmosphere. I had a good match
today and I hope I will win my second match to be in the
It was my first PSA match so I was a bit nervous. I am
happy though, it was a great experience. Now Iím looking
forward to my next PSA event.
I wasnít happy with the way
I played today. He dominated the T-position all over the
match and I wasnít able to come out of defending. Itís
hard to play a friend who youíre on court with every
day. I wish him good luck for his upcoming matches.
I had to play against my friend today. We are everyday
on court together, so we know each other very well. I am
happy to win in three games. Now I am looking forward to
my next match.
After the PSA office called
me at 12am saying that they have a withdrawal from my
mate Norman Junge and that there is a place available, I
got into my car and drove the 400km to Kriens.
Arrived here to play Joel from Switzerland. I played
quite well and could play my game. But still sometimes
on these hot courts Joel could get me under pressure and
didnít make my match that easy.
David was too good for me
today. It feels good to be back home and done with final
exams for the year though, looking forward to some hard
work over the summer.
Really pleased to win that one, especially 3-0. I was
quite nervous going into the match as Iíd heard he was a
good player. But I played well and didnít make too many
mistakes. Looking forward to tomorrow nowÖ
Bouncy & hot courts. The
ball jumps and jumps. It was a nice and friendly match.
I am happy to will in 3. But I know tomorrow gonna be
