Grupa O2 Cup, PSA $5k, 01-04 Dec, Warsaw, Poland
The top four seeds win through to the semi-finals in Warsaw …
Joel Hinds bt Sebastian Weenink 3-1 (11-8;11-8;7-11;11-5) 49 min
Joel: It was quite a though match. First two games were pretty tight. In the 3rd I was 6-4 up and then he hit 6 nicks… so I didn’t do much wrong. I’ve got a good start in the 4th and manage to hang on
Rasmus Nielsen bt Amr Swelim 3-0 (11-9;11-9;3-0 ret.) 39 min
Rasmus: Happy to get a 3-0 win. It was a very tight match. I don’t know what happened to Swelim that he had to retire (Amr said it’s hamstring injury). All I am happy about is that I got through
Chris Truswell bt Matias Tuomi 3-1 (4-11;11-5;11-5;11-8) 41 min
Chris: Fairly though match. He is training in Birmingham at the same club as I am. We’ve only trained once, but I’ve seen him playing so I knew what to expect . I was a little bit nervous in the first and he got a good start, but I knew that I had to stay on court and be aggresive which I did in the 2nd and 3rd. I felt comfortable then. In the 4th I was happy to close it out, it was tight, but I was able to squeeze few mistakes at the end.
Kashif Shuja bt Steven London 3-0 (11-1; 11-7; 11- 4) 25 min
Kashif: I knew that he had a hard match yesterday so I knew that he struggled. I made sure that I kept the pace from the start to the end. I am sure that he will learn how to recover from the matches better. Pleased to get through.
