Frost Makes The Move In Belgium

Frost Makes The Move In Belgium

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Move Open, Torhout, Belgium

Denmark's top seed Kristian Frost Olesen marked up the third PSA World Tour title success of his career at The Move Open, the inaugural PSA Challenger 5 squash event at Sportcenter the Move in Torhout, Belgium.

But the favourite was twice stretched to five games - firstly in the quarter-finals when he squandered a two-game lead against Eddie Charlton before beating the unseeded Englishman 11-8, 11-3, 7-11, 4-11, 11-7.

The 23-year-old from Odense faced another unseeded English opponent in the final. Jaymie Haycocks made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he defeated third-seeded Dutchman Dylan Bennett.

After Olesen took the first two games in the final, Haycocks staged a fight back to force a fifth game decider.

But the 28-year-old from Birmingham, ranked outside the world top 100, was unable to capitalise on his turnaround as the Dane raised his game to close out the match 11-9, 14-12, 3-11, 9-11, 11-8.

It was Olesen's first appearance in a Tour event since winning the PSA Challenger 5 Canary Islands Open in December.
