Swiss bow out as three English and a Dane
make the Sekisui semis ...
match of the day was up and coming Englishman Lyell
Fuller against another qualifier and Swiss hope Jonas
First game was a close one until the very end of the game.
After a short blood-injury break, where Dähler put on his
long shorts to prevent from bleeding again - for sure not
the easiest thing to handle with as the court was once again
very hot, Lyell closed the game pretty fast.
The second and third
game were close as well, but in the end Dähler made too much
errors. Dähler gave away some points to easy and Fuller of
course took this advantage and closed the match.
Really happy to win today especially in 3 which leads me as
fresh as possible going into my first semifinal of a 10k
Really looking forward to tomorrow
and would like to take this time to thank my new travelling
tour coach Ash Davies for his wisdom in between games.
Today I never felt comfortable. Far to many unforced errors.
But all credit to him. He never gave me the chance to get
more confidence. I want to thank the sponsors and organizer
for this great event.
encounter between Tom Ford and Tim Weber was a
more a less clear one. Although Weber came very close in
game one and three, you never really doubted that Ford would
lose the match. And as predicted Ford took the match in
I played well but he was better in the end. For me it was a
good performance. And I hope next week I can do the same.
See ya later :-)
I played a lot better today. I knew how dangerous Tim can be
so I was pretty wary. My straight game was a lot better and
I was finding the corners more frequently. At 9-2 or 7 I was
already in the showers so I?m glad I managed to get off in 3
qualifier, Ashley Davies, was up against number four
seed Kristian Frost. This match was an open battle
but Frost showed at the important stages why he was the
seeded player. Frost brought home the match with a 3-1.
Fair play to
Kristian he played great and really did out play me in the
first two games. Then I played some of my best squash to
take a tight 3rd. in 4th he was just a little too tough for
me. So I wish him the best of luck he deserved to win today.
I'm very pleased with the win. It was not an easy match and
in 4 games. I'm happy. Tomorrow is a new day, new battles to
the last quarterfinal Swiss hope was lost in a very short
time. Benjamin Fischer, who seemed to have some
problems with moving today, had no chance against Chris
Fuller. Fuller won the match in three very clear games.
Good win today. I don?t think he played his best but I was
very happy. I think tomorrow will be different but I am
looking forward to it.
Wasn?t feeling good out there today, couldn?t find my width
and started becoming negative. All credit to Chris, he
played very steady and made me work hard in every rally.
tomorrow for the semis there is one all-english battle as
Lyell Fuller and Tom Ford get on court at 4pm.
The bottom half will be decided between Kristian Frost (most
successful player in Kriens) and Chris Fuller.
Will there be an all-english final on Sunday? Or is Kristian
Frost able to overcome his seeding and get into a final in
Kriens for the sixth time?
We will see tomorrow...
