Les Bleus à l’étranger

Cleveland, USA

Quarts de finale

[3] Adrian Waller (ENG) 3-1 [7] Lucas Serme   11-8, 11-6, 7-11, 11-3 (48m)

Waller and Serme had played twice before in PSA matches, each winning one, so a close result seemed in the cards. Waller took the first two before Serme answered back before falling short in the fourth.

Waller: “I’m happy to get through in four there. I started really well and felt really comfortable through the first two games but he’s going to fight to the end. He changed his tactics and made it so much harder for me. I didn’t react well enough and he deserved that third game, so I had to change my tactics again. I started that fourth game and made some winners, and was happy to have that fast start because he was always coming back.”

Belle performance de Lucas Serme (n°39 mondial) au Cleveland Skating Club Open 2021 (Challenger 30, 30 000 $) : le Français s’est qualifié pour les quarts de finale en battant le n°1 Américain Shahjahan Khan (n°40), un joueur en forme ces derniers temps.

Le match a été serré de bout en bout mais le joueur d’Annecy Squash a su être solide dans le money-time des deux derniers jeux. En quart de finale, il affrontera samedi l’Anglais Adrian Waller (n°29).
