Guyana’s Nicolette Fernandes ended her quest for top honours in the Guardian Wealth Management sponsored 36th Swiss Open 2009 Squash tournament at the runner-up position yesterday.
France’s Camille Serme took the ladies title with a superb example of how to use a drop shot, beating Nicolette Fernandes in what was reported as the best ladies’ final seen in years. The match deciding point was at one game all and 12 all in the second, when Nicolette made a great opening and drove the ball into the tin. From that moment on the devastating short game of Camille took its toll as she went on to claim the title.
The result is still a superb one for Fernandes who is returning after a long injury layoff and has made it to the latter stages of her two comeback outings.
The Swiss Open started in 1974 and has been run in the same club for the last 36 years and the nearest any Swiss has been to the title were Agnes Muller in 2000 and Lars Harms in 2001, both reaching the final – that is until yesterday…
Nicolas Mueller proved too strong for Eddie Charlton and this popular young man went on to take the title in front of a packed home crowd at Geneva Squash Club.
This win now gives Nicolas four back to back PSA wins and he looks likely to continue his climb up the world rankings.
