Steinmann takes Swiss Open crown as Camacho forced to quit with injury

Home hope Dimitri Steinmann captured the Swiss Open 2019 after opponent Jesus Camacho was forced to retire due to injury midway through the 4th game.

Camacho was 2-1 up with the players locked at 3-3 in the fourth when the Mexican sustained the injury in a collision with his Swiss opponent.

Referee Rory Stewart deemed the injury as 'contributed' and allowed the mandatory 15 minutes' injury time but it became apparent that Camacho was in need of proper medical attention and he was taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

Examinations concluded the sixth seed did not sustain a serious injury but it was Steinmann – warned for being careless with his movement earlier in the contest – who took the first prize. The Swiss was also one of the first to visit Camacho in hospital a few hours after the match.
