PILATUS CUP 2012
 

Frost Scores Second Swiss Success

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Pilatus Cup, Kriens, Switzerland

 

Frost Scores Second Swiss Success

Less than a month after winning the Sekisui Open in Kriens, Denmark's Kristian Frost Olesen returned to the Sportpark Pilatus Kriens in Switzerland to successfully defend his Pilatus Cup crown.

And again it was compatriot Rasmus Nielsen that the 23-year-old from Odense had to beat in the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 squash event - winning 11-3, 11-7, 11-6 to win the sixth Tour title of his career, and the fourth of the year.

"I'm a very happy man!" said Olesen. "I had a very hard match with Lucas (Serme) this morning which I managed to get through 3/0 and by doing so I was fresh for the final.

"In the first I played a great game. I hardly made any mistakes and yet I hit some great shots. I'm proud of myself for winning two events almost back to back!"

Second seed Nielsen, also from Odense but six years his opponent's senior, was not happy with his performance: "I probably played one of my worst matches on the tour. I couldn't get the body going, and made many unforced mistakes."
