Weekend Round-Up: Crouin Keeps Momentum Going in Tasmania

Victor Crouin is in a rich vein of form at the moment, having taken home a third title in three weeks, as he won the Tasmanian Open over the weekend.

The Frenchman started his amazing run by winning the Mulgrave Country Club Victorian Open Championships at the end of June before then taking the Australian Open title last weekend.

He made it three in three this week with a straight games victory over Mohd Syafiq Kamal to end his Australian adventure.

The No.1 seed faced off against Kamal in the final for a second straight week, and the score-line was exactly the same as it was in Bega a week ago.

This week, Crouin got the job done in less than half an hour as he won the event having not dropped a game throughout. Kamal may have been left reeling after a marathon semi final against Addeen Idrakie, which lasted 91 minutes and saw four of the five games go to tiebreaks.

Instead, Crouin had come through all three of his matches ahead of the final with relative ease. He beat Alex Eustace in the second round, before downing both Japanese hopes on Saturday, in Naoki Hayashi and Tomotaka Endo, to reach the final.

The Frenchman will be looking to continue his form at the QSF Open, as he goes for a fourth consecutive title on the PSA Challenger Tour.
