[2] Edmon Lopez (ESP) 3-1 [4] Benjamin Aubert (FRA) 

The second semi-final saw an absolutely enthralling encounter which had the crowd on the edge of their seats. Cut and thrust, blow for blow with Edmon coming out on top with his superb steady then attacking widths and lengths. His relentless style put Benjamin under pressure throughout the match.

That said Ben was full of attack himself and the number of times he flicked the ball crosscourt wrong footing his opponent was great to witness. Huge rallies ensued and such a well-played sporting affair it was. Again a great week for the young Frenchman and he will come again. Edmon moves on to face the top seed Fallows in what is sure to be a great final.


[4] Benjamin Aubert (FRA) 3-1 [WC] Owain Taylor (WAL)

The young Welshman’s great run came to end tonight but not before he put in a great performance to fall just short against a very talented opponent. Benjamin was so fast and accurate around the court and this ultimately told in the end. Owain has had 2 very tough encounters to get to the quarter finals and congratulations to him on his event. Benjamin moves forward to contest a semi-final place.

La grande course du jeune Gallois s’est terminée ce soir, mais pas avant d’avoir réalisé une belle performance pour tomber juste à côté d’un adversaire très talentueux. Benjamin a été si rapide et précis autour de la cour et cela finalement dit à la fin. Owain a eu deux rencontres très difficiles pour se rendre en quart de finale et je le félicite pour son événement.Benjamin va de l’avant pour disputer une demi-finale.
