REPORTS

Schweertman Seals Katowice Open Crown

Dutch number one seed Piedro Schweertman produced a magnificent comeback from two games down to defeat surprise finalist Charlie Lee and lift the Silesia Katowice PSA Open, PSA M5 title - his first tournament win of 2016.

The 32-year-old displayed his title credentials earlier on in the tournament, with wins over Jami Aijanen, Victor Crouin and Mark Fuller sending him through to the final, while the unseeded Lee counted seeded players Jan Koukal and Matthew Hopkin among his conquests as he secured a maiden PSA World Tour final berth.

Games one and two were close affairs, with World No.215 Lee narrowly taking the opener on the tie-break before going on to double his advantage with victory in the second, putting the 18-year-old on the cusp of a triumph over an opponent 137 places above him in the World Rankings.

An improved Schweertman, who reached the final of the Malaysian Tour III on his last PSA World Tour appearance, halted Lee’s momentum impressively in the third and followed that up by taking the fourth game in comfortable fashion to level proceedings.

Both competitors went toe-to-toe in a high-octane decider with Schweertman eventually closing it out to capture his ninth PSA World Tour title with an 11-13, 9-11, 11-6, 11-4, 11-9 scoreline.
 
Masters Leads English Trio Into Katowice Open Main Draw

#PSAWorldTour

Top qualifying seed Bradley Masters spearheaded the English charge in the final qualifying round of the Silesia Katowice PSA Open, PSA M5 tournament after scything through Germany’s Hendrik Vossing in straight games.

World No.249 Masters dominated proceedings in Poland and romped to an 11-7, 11-3, 11-8 victory to seal his main draw berth.

Up next for Masters is a meeting with 17-year-old compatriot Kyle Finch, with the pair set to face off for the first time on the PSA World Tour.

Phil Nightingale and Matthew Broadberry are the other Englishmen to secure their places in the opening round of the main draw after respective wins over Vojtech Ryba and Tess Juttle.

Nightingale is set to line up against Ireland’s Sean Conroy for a place in the quarter-final, while Broadberry will go head-to-head with Norwegian Adrian Ostbye.

Sebastian Bonmalais and local player Marek Wojnarski contested the other final qualifying round fixture, with the former advancing to set up a maiden PSA World Tour main draw clash against second seed Matthew Hopkin.
