SEMIS



GU19 Report*
[1] Nele GILIS (Bel) 3-2 [3/4] Emilia SOINI (Fin)
                 7/11, 11/7, 11/9, 15/17, 11/9 (65mn)

My my......

First of all, we had a superb encounter between Nele Gilis, hot fav and National Champion, beating her little sister Tinne in the final a few days ago)and Finn Emilia Soini.

Emilia really pushed the #1 to the wall, and the knowledgeable audience admired both the play and the esthetism of those beautiful young ladies. And the score speaks for itself, the last three games: 11/9, 15/17, 11/9. Great ambiance it was!

As for Marie Stephan, she gets her girl in 4, a few errors crepped in, and a bit of frustration, but she is now in the final. She really retrieved extremely well, and managed to find some superb length/width game, that really took their toll on her opponent. A good tactical construction that did pay off...

BU15 Report*
[1] Victor CROUIN (Fra) 3-0 [9/16] Ahmed El Mashad (Egy)
                            12/10, 11/2, 11/6 (38mn)                           
[3/4] Hugo MANDIL (Fra) 3/2 [2] Viktor BYRTUS (Cze)
                            8/11, 11/5, 4/11, 11/7, 15/13

A BIT EMOTIONAL....

Yeah, I know, I shouldn't. But it just happened that the two winners, Victor and Hugo are a bit of two protégés of mine, as I've seen them growing up. In the scale of things, the fact of them losing or winning is of no importance whatsoever. But it's more about the fashion they won today I guess.

Hugo had a big match today against Frenchman WallPiercing Alex Dubarry, and to be honest, I didn't see Hugo ousting the seed2 Viktor BYRTUS a few hours later. Little I knew...

The Frenchman was 1/0 down, and 2/1 down. The ending was nail bitting - talking of which, don't think his dad, mum or brother have got any of those left, and it looked to me that Danny his dad/coach had a few grey hair more at the end...

But there you have it, the Frenchboy clinches it, 15/13, toss of a coin, but today, coin fell on the French side. The spectators were happy, especially as it meant that a French Winner is garanted, as Victor won a tricky match as well.

According to Emmanuel his Dad/coach, Victor took a terrible start, 6/1 down, but clawed his way back to 9/9, managed to tin the ball, got a tie break still, and clinches the game 12/10, probably the turning of the match..

Ahmed El Mashad didn't really showed up in the 2nd, but came back strongly at the start of the 3rd, it was pretty close up to 3/3, but Victor, too confident now, zoomed to victory, 11/6.

"Victor played well today, he didn't rush to the front too soon, he was patient, and still managed to get a few nice winners", concluded the quite rightly proud dad...




BU13  Report*
[9/16] Utkarsh BAHETI (Ind) 3-1 [5/8] Srikar MUMMIDI (Wal)
                             11/3, 11/3, 8/11, 16/14 (25mn)                 
[3/4] Jared CARTER (Eng) 3-0 [2] Conor MORAN (Irl) 
                            11/9, 11/4, 11/4 (34mn)

The young Welsh took a bit of time to get into the match and to get used to his opponent's game/trust his own game. The Indian was hitting very good width in particular, and surprised the Welsh times and tems again.

But it eventually became a close game, that could very easily got to 5, as the Welsh only bows 16/14 in the 4th. There is potential there...

As for the second match, the Irish looked completely overwelmed by the loss of the first game - and the game of his opponent. Running of confidence, the English got better and better, while the Irish, getting more and more frustrated, just seem to lose a bit his way today.

GU15 - Report
[1] Nadiia USENKO (Ukr) 3-1 [5/8] Karina TYMA (Eng)
                             10/12, 11/7, 11/4, 11/6
[5/8] Engy HAMOUDA (Egy) 3-0 [2] Alina BUSHMA (Ukr)
                              11/8, 11/8, 11/8

Favorite Nadiia Usenko got a nice scare against Englishv Karina Tyma losing a very close game. After that, she refocused nicely to impose her game more assertively.

But I'm told that the other seed, also from Ukraine, Alina Bushma injured herself in the knee during the second game, which would have had a bearing on the outcome I guess (especially when playing an "all in touch" Egyptian. And so we have an upset, and Engy Hamouda is in the final, if you can call having an Egyptian squash player in a final an upset!!!...

QUARTER-FINALS

BU15 Report
[1] Victor CROUIN (Fra) 3-0 [5/8] Sanjay JEEVA (Bel)
                         11/4, 11/4, 11/6 (25mn)
[9/16] Ahmed El Mashad (Egy) 3-0  [3/4] Yannick WILHELMI (Sui)  11/6, 11/8, 11/7 (28mn)
[3/4] Hugo MANDIL (Fra) 3-1 [9/16] Alexandre DUBARRY (Fra)   1/8, 10/12, 11/6, 11/5 (37mn)
[2]  Viktor BYRTUS (Cze) 3-0 [5/8] Ziad AYMAN (Egy)
                         11/4, 11/3, 11/9

Most contested match these quarters was no contest the Franco French Derby Hugo Mandil/Alexandre Dubarry. I had a bit the impression of being Malcolm Willstrop looking at David Palmer and John White the first time they came to Pontefract, with Malcom telling them that piercing the wall was NOT the way to win a match...

Joking but bless them, they hit far too hard, far too often. In particular Alexandre who just doesn't vary his game enough, hitting 100% of his shots. He'll gain a lot in varying height and weight in his shots. Hugo weathered the storm pretty well, even if he wobbled a bit at the end of the 2nd, serving out and a tin right after.

To be fair, Alex has 2 very heavy 5 setters yesterday, and it must have been heavy in the legs this morning....

In complete contrast, lost of drop shots, Egyptian Ahmed El Mashad ousted the 3/4 Swiss Wilhemi, 3/0. Hot French favorite did a serious match, good deep game that opened the court nicely against Belgium Sanjai Jeeva. Top seed 2, Viktor BYRTUS didn't take any prisoners against Ziad Ayman, 3/0.

GU15 Report
[1] Nadiia USENKO (Ukr) 3-0 [5/8] Marion ROMBA (Fra)
                          11-0, 11-4, 11-5
[5/8] Karina TYMA (Eng) 3-0 [9/16] Maelle FUHRER (Fra)                  11/9, 11/2, 11/4 (18mn)
[5/8] Engy HAMOUDA (Egy) 3/1 [3/4] Fanny SEGERS (Fra)                  6/11, 11/7, 11/6, 11/2 (37mn)
[2] Alina BUSHMA (Ukr) 3-0 [5/8] Ellie MCVEIGH (Irl)
                         11/5, 11/6, 11/2 (16mn)

Si Nadiia Usenko et Alina Bushma n'ont pas traîné sur le court, pas plus de Karin Tyma contre la petite Maelle Fuhrer, grosse déception pour la France, avec la chute de Fanny Segers, qui après avoir pris le premier jeu, et malgré un public nombreux en soutien, n'a pas pu arrêter la petite égyptienne Engy Hamouda. Elle s'incline 3/1..

GU13 Report
[5/8] Lucinda CROSS (Eng) 3-0 Zeynep KABAKCI (Tur)
                          11-6, 11-7, 11-5

[5/8] Nour EL LAMEY (Egy) 3-0 [2] Marie FARGEAS (Fra)                 1-8, 12-10, 14-12

Bad day for the French Princesses, for Yuna Loaec, seed 1 and also for Marie Fargeas, #2, both bowing early in the quarters.

So, we'll have Lucinda Cross, England, who beats Turkey Zeynep Kabakci, versus Eve Coxon, for an English derby. Then Daniek Krukkert, Netherlands against Nour El Lamey.

Yesterday we had lost the seed 1, and today, we also lost 3/4 Sam Buckley who lost in 5, 11/8 in the 5th against Welsh Srikar Mummidi  Bottom draw, French Manuel Paquemar lost logically against Jared Carter whol'll keep on playing Conor Moran #2 in the semis...
