Johannesburg Open Finals – Ladies Section

Jasmine Hutton got off to a good start. She played the ball deep and then put in an attacking boast that took Milnay Louw to the front of the court who was not able to hit a good return off these attacking balls. Hutton took great advantage of this. Louw slowed down the game in the 3rd and started to get a much better length, taking the game relatively easy at 11-4. Hutton came out firing in the fourth and once again played attacking squash. She was 6-0 up before Louw got her first point. A number of unforced errors by Hutton saw Louw claw her way back to 10each. Hutton played 2 good drop shots on the backhand side to take the game 12-10 and the match 3-1. Hutton said, “ I got the jitters in the 4th after being 6-0 up and keep thinking that I must not loose this match! I am very happy to have hung on to take the match.”

Juan Camilo Vargas was quick onto the ball and played good consistent squash throughout the match. He hit a good length and forced Jean-Pierre Brits to make too many errors. In the second game Brits tried to keep the rallies long and hard but Vargas picked up some amazing tight drops and counter dropped with even better shots. In the 3rd game Brits just made too many errors and fall too far behind to make any comeback. Brits said, “ He just played better than me on the night.”
