Overview

Daryl Selby and Chris Simpson will go head-to-head in the final of the CLIC Sargent St George’s Hill Open, PSA M25 event after claiming respective victories against Lucas Serme and Tom Richards.

Selby’s clash with Serme was an engaging affair with very little to choose between both players in the opening two games but World No.18 Selby, nine years Serme’s senior, used his immense experience to take the vital points towards the latter stages of each game, claiming a 2-0 lead in the process.

The third game was also a close affair but Selby yet again managed to pull away at the end to book his place in the final with a hard-fought 12-10, 14-12, 11-8 triumph.

“Lucas was playing very well for the first two games,” said Selby.

“I had a very hard match [against George Parker] and he played very well in the first two rounds so I knew it was going to be tough and I could have easily lost the first two games. They were the closest ones and that’s where he played his best squash, although I thought I’d played well too. It was as tough as I expected, Lucas moves exceptionally well and varies his shots beautifully.

“I’m really delighted to have a chance to win my first PSA World Tour title in three years. I have lost a few finals in that time so a win would be nice.”

Simpson meanwhile faced a difficult tie against long-time adversary Richards but, after just edging the opening game, dominated the rest of the encounter. A fast start from Richards in game three looked to have breathed life into the tie but Simpson recovered to seal the win in three. The 28-year-old from Guernsey goes into his final clash with Selby looking to win his 9th PSA World Tour title – against a man he has lost to in all three of the pair’s PSA World Tour encounters.
