Serme Rallies To Rotterdam Title

#PSAWorldTour
 
Frenchman
Lucas Serme fulfilled his top-seeding in the Rotterdam Open when he won the PSA Challenger 5 squash title at Victoria Squash in the second largest city in the Netherlands.
 
The UK-based 22-year-old dropped his only game of the tournament in the quarter-finals when he was tested for 82 minutes by sixth-seeded Englishman
Mark Fuller
 
Serme recovered to soar past Germany’s No.4 seed
Tim Weber in a straight games semi to earn his eighth appearance in a PSA World Tour final.
 
His opponent, Spaniard
Carlos Cornes Ribadas Ribadas, celebrated his first ever Tour final appearance after upsetting Scotland’s No.2 seed Douglas Kempsell in the other semi.
 
The third seed from Santiago de Compostela was meeting Serme, the world No66, for the first time for almost two years.
 
But the lower-ranked Spaniard was unable to exact revenge, going down 11-8, 11-6, 11-3 in 45 minutes to give Serme the sixth Tour title of his career – and his second this year.
 
“I had a tough start in the match as I was still tired from yesterday’s matches,” explained the victorious Frenchman (pictured below, left, with Ribadas) afterwards.  “So, I aimed for long rallies, while trying to have Carlos move around the court a lot.
 
“When I saw he became more and more tired and started to make mistakes, I could relax and play basic squash, which paid off in the end.”
