2015 Day TWO - men's qualifying finals open in new window
 Laurens Jan Anjema
(Ned) 3-2 Greg Lobban (Sco)
Two contrasting matches to start the
is a very good player, I played him last year in the Leagues, and
the scoreline was very different, he has improved so much in a year!
 Coline Aumard
(Fra) 3-0 Victoria Temple-Murray (Eng)
A fast encounter between two attacking players, and our Abou playing 10 tins in the second game only. Normal day at the office for BirdsbrainÖ
think we both play the same style of squash, we like to attack. We
grew up together, we played so many times, even last month in Canary
Wharf. So I knew what to do, just keep the ball tight, anything
loose he would kill it and find winners.
Very happy with a 3/0
against Victoria, because she is a very good player and if you donít
play your best against her, you just donít see the ball!
I know, itís very
long!!! Itís hard for the people that are watching and itís hard for
us too! But I feel it was a mature performance, and although I
didnít play my best squash, itís nice to win, especially when you
are not at your top!
I saw Jessica play
last summer during the World Juniors, although I never played her,
she hits the ball really well! This is my first time trying to
qualify for the British Open Senior, so I am really excited to be
here! I found it less intimidating I guess because I was playing
somebody of my age group.
 Nafiizwan Adnan
(Mas) 3-1  Rex Hedrick (Aus)
match under high surveillance Meguid/Le Roux, with the top three
I go up and down, and
I donít want to go up and down I want to stay up, I want to be
consistent, thatís it! I seem to play well, then go for too short
too early, then find myself down, then having to pick myself up
again, getting my shÖ together, and it starts all over again!!!
 Misaki Kobayashi (Jpn)
3-0 Rhianne OíDonnell (Eng)
is massive for me.
Itís a good start,
itís always better to try and get to qualify being as fresh as
 Leo Au (Hkg) 3-1
 Henrik Mustonen
Lucas Hits the Wall
Yes, I think Iím what
you can call a confidence player, although Iím trying to work on
being more consistent. Recently, I realise that I was not positive
enough, and I made sure that I changed that, Iíd rather lose being
positive than win and being negative on court!
 Siyoli Waters
(Rsa) 3-0 Lucy Beecroft (Eng)
two first games were really close, I think the second was something
like 14/12! After that, I just made sure I hit good length and take
the ball in, and I was happy to not hit as many unforced errors as I
Nele Gilis (Bel) 3-1
 Laura Pomportes (Fra)
the youngest player, and the lowest ranked player, so nobody was
expecting me to win, no pressure on my at all! I played well, but I
had no confidence in my shots at all, so I kept playing to the back,
and the rallies were so longÖ! It just kept going and goingÖ
I played great.
 Tesni Evans (Wal)
3-1 Hollie Naughton (Can)
have never play Hollie, and never even got on court with her.
 Aisling Blake (Irl)
3-0 Alicia Mead (Eng)
She got a good lead in
the 3rd, and she just relaxed, and she was able to play her game. So
maybe she was finally able to play her true game in that third, but
by then, I was in the leadÖ
Those matches are the
worst, all the pressure is on you! I hadnít played her for yearsÖ
