Schweertman wins Q-sourcing Trophy

 

Piedro Schweertman claimed the second PSA title of his career in convincing fashion today after seeing off the strong and spirited challenge of French prospect Lucas Serme in the final of the Q-sourcing Squash Trophy 2010.

 

The 26-year old Dutch favorite powered his way through to the climax of the satellite event in the Dutch city of Barendrecht without dropping a game, disposing of English duo Alex Ingham and Mark Fuller, as well as Egypt’s Ali Farag in straight games. 18-year old Serme at the other hand came through qualifying and three tough main draw matches against Andre Haschker (3-1), Rene Mijs (3-0) and Sebastiaan Weenink (3-2) to reach his maiden PSA final.

 

The final was played at a furious pace with Schweertman taking the early advantage. From half way the first, the young Serme steadied and matched his more experienced opponent shot for shot for the remainder of the match. However it was Schweertman who proved more decisive at the end of each game, eventually running away with a hard fought 11-8, 12-10, 11-8 victory.

 

Schweertman’ second ever PSA tournament win marks the third title success of a Dutch player in a week on the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour, after both Laurens Jan Anjema and Dylan Bennett registered wins in respectively Canada and Peru earlier in the week. The 52,5 world ranking points will take the Dutchmen into the top-100 for the first time in his career in next month’s PSA World Ranking.

 

Schweertman and Serme to contest Q-sourcing final

 

Piedro Schweertman and Lucas Serme moved into the final of the Q-sourcing Squash Trophy 2010 after both players recorded contrasting victories at Squashcentrum Barendrecht in the Netherlands.

26-year old Schweertman, the tournament favorite, cruised through to the climax of the PSA Satellite event in the Dutch city of Barendrecht, completely outplaying Englishmen Mark Fuller from the word go. Fuller tried to match the speed of the Dutch top seed, but came up short on almost every occasion. Schweertman never led up the pressure, eventually winning 11-6, 11-3, 11-2 in 28 minutes.

 

17-year old Serme however had to battle hard for 65 minutes to see off Dutch wildcard Sebastiaan Weenink in a high quality match. The 23-year old resident of The Hague took a 2-0 lead in games, but eventually succumbed to the speed and fitness of his extremely gifted French opponent, who went one better then his older sister Camille, who lost out to English star Jenny Duncalf in yesterday’s semi final of the Chennai Open.

 

Sunday’s final of the Q-sourcing Squash Trophy 2010 will commence at 5pm. It will be the first time that Schweertman and Serme will meet on the PSA World Tour.

 

Dutch duo burst into Q-sourcing semi’s

 

The semi finals of the Q-sourcing Squash Trophy 2010 in the Dutch city of Barendrecht will feature two Dutch players, an Englishmen and a talented French junior.

 

Piedro Schweertman was the first player to move into Sunday’s semi’s. The 26-year old Dutch ace proved too strong for the young and extremely talented Egyptian Ali Farag who stunned the home crowd on numerous occasions with beautiful shots. The physical strength and all court play of the top seed made the difference though at the end of each closely contested game with Schweertman running away with a hard fought 11-8, 11-7, 11-9 win over his much younger opponent.

 

Schweertman now meets eight seeded Mark Fuller from England who overcame a one game deficit and a spirited performance by higher ranked Israeli Ido Avron to reach tomorrow’s semi final: 7-11, 11-8, 11-4, 11-6.

 

The second semi final will be contested by Lucas Serme and Sebastiaan Weenink. Serme, a 17-year old qualifier from France, ousted ‘local hero’ Rene Mijs in straight games (11-6, 13-11, 11-7) causing a second successive upset after defeating the experienced Andre Haschker from Germany earlier in the day in four.

 

23-year old Weenink, playing his first PSA tournament, showed immense mental strength in his quarter final match with English qualifier Andrew Birks. The skilful Dutch international, who turned pro only 6 weeks ago after completing his university degree, looked down and out at several times in the match, but the citizen of The Hague kept fighting hard, surviving 3 match balls en route to a 11-8, 8-11, 10-12, 11-9, 14-12 victory.
