Koukal Makes History In Chateau-Arnoux Final


Jan Koukal became the first player to win a PSA World Tour title for a 12th successive year after he lifted the 3rd Open Squash Provence Chateau-Arnoux, PSA M5 title after beating Chris Fuller in a mammoth final.

Koukal came into the final in fine fettle, dispatching number four seed Robert Downer in the previous round. Fuller meanwhile defeated Mark Fuller in straight games to achieve his final berth.

Czech No.1 Koukal (below) took the opening game before he was pegged back by the Englishman in the second. Fuller grew in confidence after his success in the second game and took the third in a comfortable victory.

The experienced Koukal had to dig in deep but managed to swing the pendulum back in his favour and rose to claim the final two games to secure an 11-8, 8-11, 6-11, 11-4, 11-7 victory to earn his first PSA World Tour title of 2015.

The triumph put him fifth in the current list of PSA World Tour title winners with 32, behind Mike Corren (50), Ramy Ashour (36), Nick Matthew (33) and Amr Shabana (33).
Awe-Inspiring Aubert Through To Main Draw In Chateau_Arnoux


Frenchman Benjamin Aubert starred on home-soil to dump out top qualifying seed Xavi Blasco in the final qualifying round of the 3rd Open Squash Provence Chateau-Arnoux, PSA M5 tournament and advance to the main draw of a PSA World Tour event for the first time.

The 17-year-old demonstrated his enormous potential with a sublime performance that saw him storm to victory in straight games after he dropped just a handful of points throughout the whole match.

He will face England’s Ben Ford in the first round of the main draw as he aims to continue impressing in front of his home crowd.

Charlie Lee will join him there after he shocked number three seed Sindre Roaldsoy in a similarly dominant display. After romping to victory in three games, Lee has also made it through to the main draw for the first time and faces the main draw’s top seed Chris Fuller.

Miles Jenkins defeated Sam Ellis and Aitor Zunzunegui beat Robert Dadds to set up next round ties with Chris Hall and Jan Joukal, respectively.
