Tuominen tested in home tournament

SH_486The third leg of the Finnish Elite-series events was lucky to have both Olli Tuominen and Henrik Mustonen competing in a home event.

Both players made their way to the final as easily as expected. In the final Henrik Mustonen managed to challenge Tuominen harder than perhaps ever before.

Olli took the first two games fairly easily and it looked as the match would be over in three games. Henrik did not agree and put in a hard fight in the third and managed to clinch the game in a tie break.

Henrik continued well in the fourth and had two game balls to take the match to the decider. Olli’s experience, however, saved him this time and he took the four following points to win the match.

Emilia Soini, the 17 year old Finnish champion tooka an easy victory by beating Elina Kononen in straight games.
