Fri 25th May 2012, Day TWO, Qualifying  Finals

Four nations through to Sekisui main draw

It was a mixture of nationalities who came through tonight's qualifying finals in Kriens, but Switzerland's Cedric Kuchen was unable to add to the local interest in the main draw as he went down in straight games to France's Jerome Dadot.

Karamatullah Khan stopped a French double, but only just as he edged past Antoine Camille-Petrucci in a close five games, while German last-minute callup Carsten Schoor beat David Haley in three and Michael Harris came from a game down to beat fellow-Englishman James Simpson.

Im so unhappy to lose this kind of matches. I feel Im training for nothing, because I dont have the ultimate aim to win.

The solution is in my head and only there. I have to train more and more to win some matches again.

That was hard and close. He is so fast and steady, but my shots start working many nicks...happy.

Thanks to my super brother Kaleem (my coach). I am happy the way I played.


He was too strong for me today. I have to be much fitter to win matches like this one. I am looking forward to Australia and the trainings before.

I am very happy to beat Cedric 3-0. I know him since junior tournaments very good. I was very stressed before my match but when I was playing the stress went away.

I am in the main draw and it was my goal. I am enjoying my game and hope that it well continues tomorrow.
Enjoyable Swiss tournament.

Sunshine, fesh air, mountains, lake and a win. That describes my day. I played David Haley today and could get him under pressure. I tried to focus on my lenth because a good length is very important on these hot courts.

Luckily he played a few mistakes which were easy points for me. All in all I can say that it was very tuff to play him and especially beating him because he is very strong in his mind.

I played a good first game but after that I stopped hitting winners. Mike started playing some good deceptive shots and was in control. I started the 4th better by raising the pace but in the end he was too good today.

Glad to get through that in 4 games.

James is very tall and hard to play on a hot bouncy court. So I had to play a very restricted game.

Very happy with the win.
