FINAL:
Romain Romps To Sonderborg Success

Frenchman Romain Tenant scored his second successive PSA Tour title triumph in Scandinavia when he beat Hong Kong's Dick Lau in the final of the Fros Squash Open at Sonderborg Squash Club in Denmark.

The Swedish-based 26-year-old top seed reached the final of the inaugural PSA Tour event in Sonderborg without dropping a game.

By contrast, Dick Lau was taken to four games by local hero Morten W Sorensen before beating the unseeded Dane in a 59-minute semi-final encounter.

The 21-year-old second seed was unable to convert a game-ball in the first game - and thereafter the effects of the earlier lengthy matches took their toll on Lau as Tenant romped to an 11-10 (2-0), 11-1, 11-4 victory in 34 minutes.

"I'm not too unhappy with the way I played - a bit diesel style in the first game, but in the second and the third, more turbo style, and I got through," Tenant said afterwards. "I've won another tournament, and I'm rather happy about it especially as I didn't lose a game in the event."

Tenant's success - the third PSA title of his career - followed his win in last week's Malmo Open in Sweden.


QUARTER AND SEMI-FINALS:
Top Seeds To Contest Sonderborg Final

Top seeds Romain Tenant and Dick Lau will contest the final of the Fros Squash Open after contrasting semi-final victories in the inaugural PSA Tour event at Sonderborg Squash Club in Sonderborg, Denmark.

French favourite Tenant brushed aside English qualifier Ben Ford 11-4, 11-3, 11-4 in 31 minutes. The Swedish-based 26-year-old is celebrating his second successive PSA Tour final appearance this month after winning the Malmo Open in Sweden last week.

Dick Lau, the 21-year-old second seed from Hong Kong, was taken to four games by Morten W Sorensen before beating the unseeded Dane 11-7, 11-9, 5-11, 11-10 (2-0) in 59 minutes. The victory leads Lau to his second Tour final appearance.

FIRST ROUND:
Englishmen Burst Through In Sonderborg


English qualifiers Ben Ford and William Newnham came through the first round of the Fros Squash Open and will now face each other for a place in the semi-finals of the inaugural PSA Tour event at Sonderborg Squash Club in Sonderborg, Denmark.

Ford, 31, from Kent, defeated Spain's No7 seed David Vidal 11-1, 11-9, 11-5 in 33 minutes while Newnham, a 19-year-old from Sussex in his first year on the PSA Tour, took just two minutes longer to quash third-seeded Dutchman Rene Mijs 11-7, 11-6, 11-6.
