REPORTS

Harris and Clain Victorious

Edwin Clain and Asia Harris with L'International des Mirabelles trophy

L’International des Mirabelles came to its conclusion on Sunday afternoon at Squash Le Reve in Nancy, France, with Asia Harris and Edwin Clain taking home the titles from the Challenger 3 level competition.

Harris came into the women’s Challenger 3 level draw as the No.6 seed, and started off with a confident performance to overcome Frenchwoman Ella Galova in the opening round. She then knocked out No.3 seed Klara Moller in quick time in the quarter finals.

The 17-year-old continued her good form to win her semi-final contest as the tournament’s top seed Sofia Mateos. She dropped just eight points across the match, winning 11-3, 11-2, 11-3 to move through to her first final on Tour.

In the final, she took on compatriot and No.8 seed Kiera Marshall, and the pair were level after two games, both winning one rather comfortably. From there, though, it was a struggle, with both the third and fourth games going to tie-breaks. Harris took the third 13-11, before also securing the fourth 12-10, to take her first Tour title.

In the men’s draw, Clain also began as the No.6 seed at the beginning of the week, and he had to survive a five-gamer to get his campaign underway, winning in the deciding game against Zimbabwean No.1 Blessing Muhwati.

That was followed by the first of three surprise wins, as he defeated Germany’s No.3 seed Valentin Rapp in for games to move into the last four. In the semis, he downed the tournament’s top seed, Yannik Omlor, also in four games, to keep his knockout run going.

The final saw the Frenchman take on No.2 seed Robert Downer, and in a match that swung both ways, it was Clain that came out on top on home soil. The match went to five, after a pair of tie-breaks in the middle part of the contest, and it was Clain that won that deciding game 11-5 to clinch his second Tour title.

The surprises kept coming at L’International des Mirabelles, with the English duo of Noah Meredith and Asia Harris, along with home hope Edwin Clain, all making it into the semi-finals.

Meredith, the unseeded Englishman, started his campaign by defeating No.4 seed Sam Buckley on Thursday. He followed that up with a confident performance to defeat Switzerland’s Nils Roesch in the last eight on Friday. He fell behind to the tournament’s No.7 seed, but fought back to win in four to book his spot in the semis.

The other surprise winner in the men’s event was Frenchman Edwin Clain, who defeated the No.3 seed to advance. Buoyed with the home crowd behind him, Cain took the first two games to hold a commanding advantage. Rapp took the third to pull one back, but the Frenchman took the victory in four. He will now face top seed Yannik Omlor, while Meredith will play compatriot Robert owner in the semis.

There was just a single surprise result in the women’s quarter final, with England’s Asia Harris downing No.3 seed Klara Moller. The Englishwoman claimed a tight first game 11-9, and she was in complete control from there. She dropped just five points over the next two games en route to a straight game victory.

Harris will now face top seed Sofia Mateos in the last four of the Challenger 3 level competition, while the other semi-final will be an all-English clash. No.4 seed Katie Wells will take on No.8 seed Kiera Marshall for a place in the final on Sunday.

The semi-finals of L’International des Mirabelles will take place on Saturday, October 1, with the three surprise winners from quarter finals day aiming to back those wins up with further success in the last four.
