Home Favourite Peter Triumphs in Pilatus Cup

Defending champion Reiko Peter came out on top in his final fixture with second seed Joshua Larkin in the 2016 Pilatus Cup, PSA M5 tournament to retain his title on home soil in Kriens, Switzerland.

Peter, who defeated Austria’s Aqeel Rehman in last year’s final, dropped a solitary game en route to the final with three straight wins over his countrymen, while Larkin met a trio of qualifiers to seal his spot in the showpiece event.

The first game went in Peter’s favour as he dominated the ’T’ and moved Larkin into all four corners of the court to take it 11-4.

A determined Larkin came into the match more in game two but struggled to cope with Peter’s fast-paced, accurate hitting and went further behind as Peter took a step closer to lifting the title.

Despite a spirited display from Australian Larkin, Peter remained composed and pushed an 11-4, 11-5, 11-7 victory over the line to clam a fifth career PSA World Tour crown for the man from Lucerne in front of his own fans.

"I played very well today," said Peter.

"I can’t think of being so accurate at a fast pace in a while. I’m really happy to collect my fifth PSA title, especially at my home club. I wanted to say thanks to all my sponsors and supporters that came to cheer me on today.

"Also, a big thank you to all the organisers and all the volunteers behind the scenes."
 

Peter Powers Through In Pilatus Cup

#PSAWorldTour

Title favourite Reiko Peter made a winning start to his campaign at the Pilatus Cup, PSA M5 tournament with a confident 3-0 victory over wildcard, compatriot and tournament promoter Remo Handl seeing him through to the quarter-final on home soil in Kriens, Switzerland.

Peter blitzed to a one-game lead and it was one that he wouldn’t relinquish as his consistent hitting caused problems for Handl and he recorded an 11-4, 11-7, 11-7 triumph to reach the last eight.

“It was a good first round,” said Peter.

“I know Remo has been organising a lot and wasn’t playing much, so a huge thank you to him for all the work he does for the squash festival.”

The World No.77 is in line to play another fellow Swiss competitor in Jonas Daehler after the number five seed came through an almighty five-game affair with English youngster Patrick Rooney.

Another all-Swiss first round battle took place between 18-year-old qualifier Dimitri Steinmann and Manuel Wanner, with the former overcoming his more experienced opponent in straight games. Up next for Steinmann is second seed Joshua Larkin, who eased past Enzo Corigliano in three.

Fourth seed Benjamin Fischer makes up the Swiss quarter-final quartet thanks to his win over Alex Noakes and his reward is an upcoming fixture Peruvian qualifier Andres Duany, who advanced courtesy of an impressive 3-1 victory against Patrick Miescher.

Martin Svec and Victor Crouin will contest the other quarter-final fixture after they claimed respective wins against Emyr Evans and Christopher Binnie.
