Mustonen & Perry Win Nordic Junior Open Titles In Malmo

There were mixed fortunes for last yearís U19 finalists in the 2008 Nordic Junior Open Squash Championships, the opening Super Series event of the 2008/09 season European Squash Federation Junior Circuit in Malmo, Sweden.

Finlandís Henrik Mustonen, top seed in the menís U19 event, made up for the disappointment of finishing as runner-up in 2007 by winning the 2008 title.  The 17-year-old reached the final after beating Belgian Sam van Brusselen in the semi-finals.

The Finnís surprise final opponent was Casper Grauballe, a 5/8 seed from Denmark who upset both second seed Florian Silbernagl (Germany) and 3/4 seed Lucas Vauzelle (France) to reach the climax.

But Mustonen was too strong for the 17-year-old from Copenhagen, winning 11-8, 11-7, 11-7 to clinch the first ESF U19 Circuit title of his career.

By contrast, 2007 womenís U19 champion Kimberley Hay was unable to repeat her Malmo success a year later.  Seeded two, the 16-year-old from Newcastle faced England junior team-mate Sarah-Jane Perry, the top seed, in the final.

Perry, 18, from Kenilworth, dropped the first two games Ė but fought back to beat Hay 9-11, 8-11, 11-6, 11-8, 11-8 to clinch her second ESF circuit title, after winning the Scottish U19 Junior Open crown in December.
