Alle Österreicher in der ersten Quali Runde der Austrian Open augeschieden

Today’s first round of qualifying of the Austrian Open ended with no Austrian success after all local players had to give way to the professional PSA players. However it was a great experience for them and hopefully some motivation for their summer training.

This means that tomorrow there will be some tough matches to see for the crowd, it will be hard to predict which of the qualifiers can make it through to the main draw.
