REPORTS
Ribadas rules in Château-Arnoux

Spaniard Carlos Cornes Ribadas also tasted success for just the second time in his career, winning the M5 Château-Arnoux Open in France.

Competing in the 76th tournament of his career the 27-year-old World No.81 went into the event, which featured a strong field full of promising talents such as Geoffrey Demont and George Parker, as the top seed and duly lived up to his billing as he secured a semi-final berth without dropping a game.

Ribadas then reached the final after semi-final opponent George Parker retired injured in the fourth game of what was a gruelling and highly competitive last four battle before then securing the title courtesy of a gargantuan five-game encounter with Christophe Andre.

The Spaniard found himself a game behind to the Frenchman before coming through a colossal second game, taking it 18-16, to restore parity. After splitting the following two games to set up an all-or-nothing decider that went all the way to the wire it was Ribabas who held his nerve in a final game tie-break to take the spoils in a hard fought victory.
