Fuller Fells Jaume to Lift IMET Open Title

Top seeded Englishman Chris Fuller (right) played to his seeding to capture his first PSA World Tour title in over two years, beating Spainís Bernat Jaume in the final of the IMET Open, PSA M5 event.

Fuller was in devastating form throughout the tournament, dropping just one game en-route to the semi-final before sweeping past the promising Daniel Poleshchuk in a superb performance. Jaume had gone one better, failing to lose a game although he didnít meet any seeded players on his way to the showpiece event.

It was the 20-year-old Spaniard who took a highly-charged opener which saw both players push each other to the limits as the rallies hit all four corners of the court with regularity. Jaume eventually rose to claim a one-game advantage courtesy of some fine winners that put Fuller under pressure.

The Englishman recovered though in the second and third. Despite being dogged by a tenacious Jaume throughout, Fuller managed to keep his opponent at armís length and took both games without reply to establish a lead for the first time in the encounter.

Game four was again a hard-fought battle but it was to be Fuller who eventually made the breakthrough, completing an 11-13, 11-8, 11-7, 11-9 victory to earn his second career PSA World Tour crown.

Stunning Showdowns Ahead In Slovakia

#PSAWorldTour

The main draw of the IMET Open, PSA M5 event begins on Friday December 11 and sees a multi-national draw battle it out for honours in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Englandís Chris Fuller is the title favourite and is on the hunt for his first PSA World Tour silverware since November 2013.

The 25-year-old has had a promising year and has reached five PSA World Tour finals but Fuller has been unable to convert those final appearances in to titles thus far, missing out narrowly with four of those matches going all the way to five games.

If he is at the top of his game, Fuller will be a force to be reckoned with in the latter stages of the event and he lines up against compatriot Richard Williams in the opening round.

Defending champion Jan Koukal is also one of the players most likely to take the title and he will be hoping to add to the 33 PSA World Tour titles he has won throughout his career, a figure that has put him joint third on the list of current PSA World Tour title winners.

Koukal, who has won this tournament on three occasions, gets his tournament off to a start against a qualifier and could face Frenchman Auguste Dussourd in round two if both players win.

Israelís Daniel Poleshchuk meanwhile will be hoping to channel the form that has seen him lift both the Global Relocations Israel Open and the LOC Charing Cross Classic earlier this year.

He dropped out of his last event at the quarter-final stage due to injury but will be hoping to stay fit when he meets Sam Ellis in the opening round.

Manuel Wanner is a dark horse for the crown and recently reached the semi-final of the Airport Xmas Challenger before losing out in straight games to Benjamin Fischer. Wanner is yet to claim a PSA World Tour title but could have a strong run if he plays to his potential. He does battle with Emyr Evans for a place in the second round.
