SQUASH POINT S&P OPEN 2014, GEEL BELGIUM

2014-03-22

Saturday and Sunday I played the 3000EUR Closed Satellite Squash Point S&P Open in Belgium. After beating the Zimbabwean number 1 Admire Magwaza, and Vincent Hitchins in the Quarter Final, I made it through to the semi-final!!

In the semi-final I had to play against Mahesh Mangaonkar, the number 2 of India. I started off really well, playing a good pace and try to make him run as much as possible. I just couldnt put him under enough pressure to take a game. Eventually I lost the semi-final and finished 4th on the tournament!

I memory of the loss of Gaetane Hitchins, they awarded a special price for the most sportive person of the tournament/the person with the most progress during the last months. They awarded me this price! Its a great honor to have received this award, this means a lot to me!!
