Marche marches to Nantes victory

Frenchman Gregoire Marche produced a scintillating performance to ensure that he played to his number one seeding to defeat Henrik Mustonen and lift the Open International de Squash de Nantes, PSA M10 title on home soil.

Marche had dispatched a tenacious qualifier, Jan van den Herrewegen, in the quarter-final before beating Eddie Charlton in four to book his place in the showpiece event. Meanwhile, Mustonen shot past Piedro Schweertman in five games before upsetting Lucas Serme in the semis to prevent an all-French finale.

Marche started on the front foot with a number of tight drives moving his opponent away from the tee and allowing the World No.30 to attack at the front of the court. This approach paid dividends in the opening game as Marche surged into a one game lead.

The Frenchman was even better in the second and Mustonen struggled to live with Marche’s all-action display as the 25-year-old doubled his advantage.

Game number three was the tightest of the lot with Mustonen refusing to bow down to the pressure as he kept up his work-rate to bring the game to a dramatic end. However, Marche narrowly edged out in front to take an 11-8, 11-2, 11-9 victory, lifting the fifth PSA World Tour title of his career.
