By ALAN THATCHER
Ondrej Uherka of the Czech Republic beat South Africa’s Tristan Eysele to win his second consecutive Maidstone Open title.
After a great two days of squash at Maidstone Squash Club, Uherka clinched the championship in straight games, beating Eysele 13-11 11-5 11-6 in 44 minutes of entertaining squash.
Maidstone’s Bradley Masters reach the semi-finals, going down to Eysele in a close, entertaining battle.
Lancashire’s Jessica Davies won the women’s title, celebrating in style in her last tournament before moving to the USA on a squash scholarship at Penn State.
She beat Surrey’s Kace Bartley in the final, and although the result showed that she also won in straight games, they were all tightly contested, with Jessice squeeing home in each one to record a 12-10, 11-9, 12-10 victory.
