EUROPEAN JUNIOR U19 CHAMPS 2011
 

England Celebrate European Junior Double

European Junior U19 Championship, Kriens, Switzerland

England Celebrate European Junior Double

Top seeds Nathan Lake and Emily Whitlock ensured an English double at the European Junior (U19) Individual Squash Championships after straight games wins in the finals of the European Squash Federation event in Kriens, Switzerland.

After the first all-English men's semi-final line-up in the tournament's 22-year history, it was Lake and James Earles who emerged to contest the final after Earles, a 3/4 seed from Hull, shocked second seed Declan James in a close-fought 81-minute last four battle.

And 18-year-old Lake, who was runner-up to Declan James in the recent English Junior U19 Championship final, took full advantage of Earles's less-than-ideal preparation for the final by beating the 18-year-old Yorkshireman 11-6, 11-8, 11-7 to clinch the title.

Emily Whitlock reached the women's final without dropping a game - and continued to demonstrate her authority over the field by defeating Tesni Evans, the second seed from Wales, 11-6, 11-8, 13-11.

The triumph is the latest success for the 17-year-old from Colwyn Bay who in January became England's first winner of a British Junior Open trophy for almost a decade when she won the U17 title - then followed this success last month by winning the English Junior U19 Championship crown.

Lake and Whitlock will now lead their country's bid in the mixed European Junior Team Championship, where defending champions England are seeded to win the title for the 25th time in the event's 28-year history.

Men's semi-finals:
[1] Nathan Lake (ENG) bt [5/8] Nicholas Hopcroft (ENG) 11-3, 11-5, 11-4 (29m)
[3/4] James Earles (ENG) bt [2] Declan James (ENG) 12-10, 10-12, 9-11, 11-6, 11-8 (81m)

Final:

[1] Nathan Lake (ENG) bt [3/4] James Earles (ENG) 11-6, 11-8, 11-7

Women's semi-finals:
[1] Emily Whitlock (ENG) bt [9/16] Elvira Bedjai (FRA) 11-4, 11-2, 11-0
[2] Tesni Evans (WAL) bt [3/4] Melissa Alves (FRA) 11-5, 11-8, 12-10 (22m)

Final:

[1] Emily Whitlock (ENG) bt [2] Tesni Evans (WAL) 11-6, 11-8, 13-11

England Celebrate Historic European Junior Breakthrough

For the first time in the tournament's 22-year history, players from a single country will line up in the men's semi-finals of the European Junior (U19) Individual Squash Championships after four Englishmen prevailed in the quarter-finals of the European Squash Federation event in Kriens, Switzerland.

It was England's Nicholas Hopcroft who made the breakthrough when he twice came from behind to upset Belgium's 3/4 seed Tom de Mulder 5-11, 11-5, 3-11, 11-7, 11-6 to claim a surprise semi-final berth.

The 18-year-old from Surrey, a 5/8 seed, will now take on Nathan Lake, the top seed from Cheltenham, also 18, who marked his fourth straight games win in the event by defeating Zbynek Standera, from the Czech Republic, 11-5, 11-2, 11-4.

The other semi-final will feature Declan James and James Earles. Second seed James, a 17-year-old from Nottinghamshire, beat county colleague Oliver Holland 11-9, 11-6, 11-5, while 3/4 seed Earles, from Hull, despatched Spaniard Hugo Varela 11-7, 11-1, 11-1.

An English double is on the cards - though firm favourite Emily Whitlock is the lone English player in the last four of the women's championship.

English Junior National champion Whitlock, who is expected to become the third successive English winner of the women's title, defeated Welsh opponent Hannah Jane Davies 11-2, 11-3, 11-4 - and will now face surprise opponent Elvira Bedjai, a 16-year-old from France who beat fellow 9/16 seed Victoria Temple-Murray 11-8, 11-9, 12-10.

There will be French interest in the other semi when 3/4 seed Melissa Alves takes on Tesni Evans, the No2 seed from Wales.
