Today there were many close matches which could have gone either
way, but finally the top seeds made their way into the semis.
Last local hope Reiko Peter lost today so there will be no swiss
player in the last four. Anyway weíre looking forward to some
good squash tomorrow with the semis and the final played on the

Again happy to advance tot
he semis. All respect to Nathan. I think he played well
today and put me into really difficult positions and
situations on court. I had to work hard to get in
control and break his rhythm.
I think in the middle and tot he end oft he second and
third game I was the one who was able to push a little
harder and that made the difference. Looking forward to
a good rest after a good day of squash...
Tomorrow semis against Rasmus.
Tough match this afternoon turned out Carsten went to
get his big brother after. Beat him this morning, played
well in the second and third just maybe hit the wrong
shot at the wrong time in those pressure situations.
But all the best to Jens in the rest of the event.
Really enjoyed it here.
Well was a tough match.
Made 4 easy mistakes at the end oft he first and gave it
Made him work better in the next 2 which paid offand he
was tired in the fourth.
Well now I have to recover for Jens tomorrow Ė we always
have so hard matches but fair so looking forward to

Well, that was a pretty
long day for me; straight from the europeans. So I had
to stay really concentrate and discipline to get a
I know Reiko for many years, we probably play 200 times
in Swiss league, heís really dangerous and hast he
potential to make it really hard...
Really glad to pass through in three.
Iím really disappointed of course with how the game
went. I wanted to win today. But I couldnít maintain my
tactics. He really hung in there and made my life as
hard as he could, with success obviously.
I think he got tired in the end but I didnít play well
in the second. But in the first and the third it was
really close and I feel that it could have gone either

Morning Winners ... and
to get a 3-0 win, I tried to play consistent and it
seems it worked.
At the beginning oft he second game I relaxed a bit, but
then after that I managed to do my own game and took the
In the afternoon I have Kristian Frost a good match and

Happy to win the first round today... For some reason it
feels like the first match of a tournament is always the
Jerome played well today, especially in the second where
he gave all he had. Iím looking forward to tonight#s
Happy to get through 3-0. The courts are warm and bouncy
so with 4 matches on 2 days you need to save the energy.
Anyway felt good on courts and as soon as I get got use
tot he bounce I got my targets Iím so looking forward
tot he next match.
Happy to win in 3. The conditions are quite tough, even
though its my home club it feels really not on court.
But on the other side itís great to have so much support
oft he crowd. Hopefully I can play well tonight too.
really not happy with the way I played today. For too
many errors and lack of concentration. Carlos was
playing well, punished every lose ball I played.
Now I have 2 weeks till the next PSA, enough time to get
ready fort he last tournament this season.
In the beginning could control the T-position quite. At
gameball in the first, I searched the point to early.
After that I wasnít able to recover and he took
advantage of that.
All in all Iím disappointed, because I was hoping to
make it a bit harder for him. A big thanks to Igor,
Mario, Pascal and all the volunteers who make such a
cool event even possible.
I am happy with the tournament Jens Schoor plays very
good and Iíd like to thank Igor and the organisation.
because they made a good tournament. At the moment itís
my best PSA tournament.
No comments, I was too flat, didn't have power and Reiko
played too good ! I wish him good luck for his next
match. Itís a well organized tournament. Thank you Swiss
Against Christian I had nothing to lose, so I went for
my shots. I played quiet well but he was to good for me.
It was fun to have a good match at my home club. Great
It was very fast paced match and it took me two games to
get used to it. We had a tight last game with Rasmus but
in the end I unfortunately didnít manage to win.
Rasmus played very well and apart from few mistakes he
played a great match.
