#3 Lucas Serme bt Sean Conroy: 3-1 (11-9, 8-11, 11-2, 11-7) - 44 min

#2 Grégoire Marche bt Brian Byrne: 3-1 (11-7, 10-12, 11-5, 11-3 (44m)

#1 Grégory Gaultier bt Arthur Gaskin: 3-0 (11-8, 11-7, 11-6)





Home favorites won their opening tie tonight in Modern Squash, but number 20 seed Ireland certainly put on a great fight and their players played a lot above then their rankings suggest. In the number 3 match, Sean Conroy caused some problems for Lucas Serme during two games, before the Frenchman was able to get the upper hand. Similar story in the following match, where experienced Brian Byrne (33 years old) managed to sneak the second game (12-10) before Marche imposed his pace to the Irishman. The last match was therefore a dead rubber and Grégory Gaultier was in control for his first match in the competition, against Irish number 1 Arthur Gaskin.







Pool D


#3 Zac Alexander bt Jakub Solnicky: 3-0 (11-7, 11-7, 11-5) - 35 min

#2 Cameron Pilley vs Ondrej Uherka: 3-0 (11-2, 11-4, 11-4) - 27 min

#1 Ryan Cuskelly bt Martin Svec: 3-0 (11-4, 11-6, 11-4) - 33 min


Quite an easy start for the Aussies, as they close their first match without losing any games in a 1h30 encounter. Zac Alexander, #3, started well with a 34 min victory against Jakub Solnicky, World n°293. Cameron Pilley followed the lead with one of the quickest match of the day in 27min conceding only 10 points. Ryan Cuskelly finished this first day against Martin Svec offering a first victory to the Aussies on this MWT2017.
