Czech Open 2004
18-21 Feb, Prague, Czech Republic, $6k

21-Feb, FINAL:
Koukal Claims
Czech Title

Czech squash star Jan Koukal chose the ideal location to celebrate his first title success on the PSA Tour when he beat top seed Peter Genever in straight
games in the final.

Koukal, 20, known as 'Kouki' by his legion of loyal fans in the Czech Republic, despatched the English favourite 15-9 15-12 17-15 to clinch his first senior international title in his third PSA final.

"Kouki's win in Prague, of all places, made him very ecstatic," said tournament organiser Tomas Cvikl. "He is in very good shape and in excellent health.

He took the advantage of home turf to the fullest, and his fans offered great support. Simply, Kouki is very happy!"

18-Feb, Qualitying:
No joy for Czechs in Qualifying

Two rounds of qualifying action today saw all the Czech players lose out, with only Jan Zemlica reaching the qualifying finals, where he went down in straight games to Italy's Andrea Bianchetti.

This leaves Czech number one Jan Koukal to carry the flag into Thursday's first round.

England's top seed Peter Genever is aiming to repeat his Czech success of 2003, with Wales' David Evans seeded to meet him in the final.
