Another beautiful day in Kirens,
Switzerland. Weather was awesome, no injuries and most important
good Squash. Perfect parity, with two Swiss and two Germans
making it to the main draw. But bad luck for Tim Weber that drew
another German, Jens Schoor...
The first encounter was the closest. Jakob manages to play
really well at the beginning of each game but couldn't quite
close them except for the second.
In the other matches all the winners where just a bit stronger,
faster, tighter. A little more accurate than their opponents...
I am happy to win this match today and to play in main draw
tomorrow. I do my best and its cool to be here.
I love you all ;)
Happy to win my match and make it to the main draw. Köbi was
giving me a hard time, sent me a couple of times the wrong way.
Somehow I managed to increase the pace and taking more volleys,
which made the difference today.
Looking forward to play another match at home.
Today I played Remo Handl, a colleague of my club and a good
friend of mine. I feel that he is improving every time we play
and it always gets harder to get a win against him.
So I am very happy to make the main draw and looking forward to
tomorrow in the main draw.
That was tough for a 3/0. Again one of these young and coming
players. And with the age, the eyes aren't getting better. I
couldn't see what he was playing. When I thought straight, he
played his deceptive boast on te backhand. And when I thought
this time it's definitely straight he went for a low crosscourt
“As he is just back from an injury now and will be trying to be
a professional Squash player soon, I wish him all the best for
Lucky me that I played him now ;-)”

was Swiss day in Kriens as twelve Swiss guys were
competing. Five of them got through to the qualifying finals and
will be fighting for a place in the main draw tomorrow.
Beside the swiss three other german speaking players got through
as Haschker, Weber and Dirnberger won their matches. We
will see how many home players manage to get a place in the main
I'm happy to be here. It's my first time for SEKISUI open and I
hope it's not my last time. I love to play Squash in Kriens.
Happy to win this one. He's physicaly very strong what brought
me in trouble today.The festival grew again this year!
A big thank you to Sekisui, Pascal, Mario and all the others who
make this event possible.
Nice to be back in Kriens! It took a while to get used
to the conditions here. The lower tin changes the game quite a
bit. Every game was close. In the end Dimi looked a bit tired.
Looking forward to playing tomorrow again with a chance to go to
the main draw.
I played a Local player who trains at the same club. So
I knew what to expect. Each game I had the better start, but he
just kept on digging and diving. Happy to beat this rookie 3-0,
because it will get more difficult in the future.
At this point I want to thank the people, who made it possible
again to run such a big event. You are doing a great job and I
am always happy to play at home.
Today I managed to get a win over a young english player.
It was a good match and he impressed me with some very deceptive
shots. I am very happy to win and hope to make it to the main
draw, as the last tournament was a bit disappointing for me.
I also want to thank Mario and Pascal for the organization of
the whole Squash-Festival, which are the tournaments on the tour
I enjoy most.
So also a big thank you to all the sponsors, especially SEKISUI,
who make this possible.
Happy to win in three, although I think Roman wasn't playing his
best Squash today. Had a good lenght and some nice drops.
Hopefully I will play tomorrow as good as today.
I would like to thank Mario, Pascal and his team which set up
the Squash-Festival once again. It's always nice to playat home.
Also a big thank you to Gor and SEKISUI!
Just got back from injury. Glad I was able to push through and
get my 1st win in my second match this season.
This is the first time that I played an opponent who is smaller
than me and younger :). So I took full advantage because at my
age you take everything you get.
And him: good technique, good understanding of the game and this
Seriousness - when I was 14 I couldn'd hold the racquet properly
These days, it's a bit better, I guess.
And maybe the last time I ever beat him...
