LOPEZ SET UP A VIVA ESPANA FINAL

(1) Iker Pajares Bernabeu (ESP) bt (3) Robert Downer (ENG) 3-1: 11-8, 8-11, 11-7, 11-3 (55 mins)

In a tight semi final the top seeded Bernabeu displayed greater consistency and accuracy to complete a fine win over Robert Downer who fought admirably and controlled a significant part of the first three games before Bernabeu booked his place in tomorrow's final.

 

(2) Edmon Lopez (ESP) bt Abdullah Al Muzayen ( KWT) (Match to Edmon. Abdullah retired hurt) 2-1: 7-11, 11-6, 13-11 (30 mins)

The artistry of Al Muzayen was a treat to behold. Lopez hung in there as there was clearly a niggle that Muzayen was feeling midway through the second. The speculation of a bad ankle or a strained hamstring was being discussed in the crowd as Lopez led 10-7 in the third. A visibly uncomfortable Al Muzayen was using his deft touch to deny Lopez as he pulled level. A fourth game ball for Lopez was saved. The legs weren't coping as Lopez converted the fifth one to turn into the outstretched hands of Al Muzayen who was in no position to continue.

Lopez will play countryman Bernabeu tomorrow.
