What they said:

Jan Van Den Herrewegen:

I felt really confident on court today, having played quite some matches on this courts already.

The first game was quiet tough, but then I relaxed and went for it. Thanks of course to my couch Mark to come up from Belgium.
Looking for another good performance in the main draw tomorrow.

Jaakko Vahamaa:

I was struggling with the pace and end up trying too difficult shots when I was under pressure.

Jonas Daehler:
Happy to make the main draw again. It was really tough. I had a bad start in the first game with being 1-6 down.

Somehow I found my way into the game and won it 11-9. The second game was all the way close.

A few dives later, I was 10-4 up in the third. Managed to win it 11-7. Looking forward to play another day at my home club.

Trystan Eysele:

It was a tough match, both of us gave all. The first and the second game could have gone either way. He played the important points better than me today and that?s why he won.

I enjoyed playing this tournament and hope to do better next time.

Ashley Davies:

Well Tom is a class act and I looked up to him in the juniors.
So it is always hard to beat somebody you respect but I really kept my head together in the match and managed to sneak the match 3-1.

Tom de Mulder:

Felt like I couldn`t get enough oxygen in the lungs during the whole match. All credit to Ashley. He took my breath away.

Manuel Wanner:

Thanks to organizers and sponsors who put up another great "Squash-Festival"!

Lyell Fuller:

Happy to get through in 3 games meaning im fresh for the main draw. I know Manuels game well as we played some tough battles in juniors and I did well sticking to my tactics when in got tight. Looking forward to tomorrow.

26-May,Qualifying under way

The second World Tour tournament of this year's Squash-Festival in Kriens kicked off today. The qualification of the PSA Sekisui Open 2015 started at 3pm with two matches running simultaneously every hour until 6pm.

All higher-ranked players were able to win their matches and most of them got through easily without droping a game. Closest tie was the one between Swiss number seven and twenty-one - Jonas Dähler and Amadeo Costa.

Costa was able to take off two games from the higher seeded Dähler, before Jonas eventually closed the match with a clear 11-3 in the fifth. Also Cedric Kuchen managed to win a game against Englishman Lyell Fuller, but that was all.

Tomorrow should bring up some exciting Squash as all the seeded qualification players look out for a maindraw spot. Although most of the Swiss crew lost today, Swiss hopes are still alive as Manuel Wanner and Jonas Dähler are in the clashes for one of the last four maindraw places.
