LJ Triumphs In Toulouse

 

Top seed Laurens Jan Anjema triumphed in the Movida International Toulouse Open when he beat 'giant-killer' Simon Rosner in the final of the $15,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its second year at Movida Castanet in Toulouse, France.

 

The world No18 from the Netherlands, playing his first Tour event since recovering from an ankle injury in March, reached the final without dropping game.

 

And his German opponent Rosner, the sixth seed, had shown the best form of his life after upsetting two higher-ranked players to book his unexpected appearance in the final.

 

The 21-year-old from Paderborn took a game from the favourite - but it was the experienced Anjema, the four-time Dutch national champion from The Hague celebrating his 20th PSA Tour final, who had the edge.

 

In his longest match of the tournament, Anjema secured an 11-7, 9-11, 11-4, 11-6 victory in 62 minutes to mark the eighth Tour title of his career, but his first for more than a year.

 

Rosner Rallies On In Toulouse

 

Sixth seed Simon Rosner claimed his second upset in 24 hours in the Movida International Toulouse Open when he dismissed Chris Ryder, the third seed, in straight games to reach the final of the $15,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its second year at Movida Castanet in Toulouse, France.

 

It was after beating second seed Davide Bianchetti in the quarter-finals that the 21-year-old German number one faced Englishman Ryder, ranked 36 in the world. 

 

After surviving a close first game, Rosner went on to beat Ryder 14-12, 11-7, 11-9 in 45 minutes to reach the fifth Tour final of his career, and his second in two months.

 

The former European Junior champion from Paderborn now meets top seed Laurens Jan Anjema, the 26-year-old world No18 from the Netherlands playing his first Tour event since recovering from an ankle injury in March. 

 

Anjema ended the impressive run of Mathieu Castagnet, beating the unseeded Frenchman 11-8, 11-5, 11-6 in 58 minutes.

 

The win takes the four-time Dutch national champion from The Hague into the 20th PSA Tour final of his career.

 

Rosner Takes Out Bianchetti In Toulouse

 

Germany's Simon Rosner earned himself a surprise place in the semi-finals of the Movida International Toulouse Open after twice battling back from behind to upset second seed Davide Bianchetti in the $15,000 PSA World Tour squash event in its second year at Movida Castanet in Toulouse, France.

 

It was one of the best wins of his career - and a repeat of his first ever victory over Bianchetti, the world No29 from Italy, in the Santiago Open in Spain last November.

 

Rosner, the sixth seed from Paderborn who is ranked 21 places below his European Tour rival, maintained his focus to triumph 9-11, 11-8, 4-11, 11-1, 11-5 in 82 minutes.

 

The 21-year-old German number one, a former European Junior champion, will now face Chris Ryder after the third seed from England ended an impressive run by Danish qualifier Kristian Frost Olesen.  The 21-year-old Dane had reached the last eight after dismissing Ireland's No8 seed Liam Kenny in the previous round in his second match in the tournament in which he had recovered from two games down.

 

But 28-year-old Ryder was too strong for Olesen, winning 11-6, 11-6, 11-4 in 37 minutes.

 

There is another surprise name in the semi-final line-up after unseeded Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet beat seventh-seeded compatriot Stephane Galifi, the defending champion, 11-9, 11-9, 11-3.  The 52-minute victory was Castagnet's first Tour win over his fellow countryman - and takes the 22-year-old from Le Mans through to a clash with top seed Laurens Jan Anjema.

 

The Dutch number one also had to overcome a fellow countryman, beating qualifier Piedro Schweertman - who also hails from The Hague - 11-2, 11-4, 11-1 in 40 minutes.
