Coppinger Crowned Champion

South Africa's Stephen Coppinger was crowned Bymac Leinster Open Champion in a one sided final in Dublin against qualifier Henrik Mustonen. Mustonen had proved the story of the tournament as he produced some stunning squash to come through the qualifiers and knock out top seed Kashif Shuja from New Zealand in a thrilling five set semi-final.

Mustonen however was unable to reproduce the form that took him to the final against Coppinger who out-played the Finn with a combination of power and error free squash to win 11/x, 11/x, 11/x in xx minutes.

Coppinger was thrilled with capturing the title and paid tribute to Mustonen's performance throughout the tournament.


Marche & Mustonen Make Leinster Semis


Qualifiers Henrik Mustonen and Gregoire Marche continued to defy the seedings in the Bymac Leinster Open as they despatched their quarter-final opponents to make the last four in the $10,000 PSA World Tour squash event at the Fitzwilliam Club in Dublin, Ireland.


Mustonen, the 19-year-old world No 105 from Finland, followed his victory over third seed Bradley Hindle to beat eighth-seeded Englishman Jaymie Haycocks 11-9, 9-11, 11-2, 11-7.


It was a first round upset over fourth-seeded Dutchman Dylan Bennett that took Frenchman Gregoire Marche into the last eight - where the 19-year-old from Aix-en-Provence beat sixth-seeded Scot Alan Clyne 1-11, 11-3, 3-11, 11-9, 11-8.


Marche will now face second seed Stephen Coppinger.  The 25-year-old South African claimed his place in the semis after Irish opponent Arthur Gaskin was penalised with a 'conduct game' midway through the fourth, with the score standing at 11-1, 11-4, 9-11, 4-1 in the overseas player's favour.


Gaskin through to quarters

Carlow's Arthur Gaskin is the last Irish man standing in the Bymac Leinster Squash Open after a comprehensive three nil win against Austria's Aqeel Rehman. The world number 93 took control early on in the match, playing a high tempo that his opponent couldn't match. He now faces second seed, Stephen Coppinger from South Africa in the quarter-finals in Fitzwilliam. The only other Irish man to make it into the main draw was Galway's Niall Rooney who went down three one to England's Jaymie Haycocks.

Top seed in the main draw, New Zealand’s world number 42 Kashif Shuja, will be vying for a place in the final where he is seeded to meet South Africa’s Stephen Coppinger. However a competitive draw with a host of player’s in the world’s top 100 may see some upsets.
