Jan Secures Czech Open Title

Jan Van Dan Herrewegen rounded off an impressive week to beat Denmark’s Kristian Frost in straight games to win the 2019 Czech Open, a $6000 PSA event.

I am happy I won. First game was crucial and I was slightly lucky to win that one. I was down and he tinned shots at the end which would have been winners. And then I relaxed a bit and my short game was more positive and accurate. I am very happy with the way I played in second and third.

The score doesn’t reflect how difficult it was. I was just trying to focus on every point and not to let him back in. I really enjoyed this week. I hope the people who came to watch us the whole week here enjoyed it as well.’
