Hosts Netherlands enjoyed a highly successful opening day today (Wednesday) in the European Team Squash Championships at Frans Otten Stadion in Amsterdam.

There were some notable upsets in the women's event - with both of the top two seeded teams suffering surprising losses.

Hosts Netherlands - runners-up for the past six years - first beat Switzerland 3/0. But in the later tie against seventh seeds France, team No1 Vanessa Atkinson went down 3-9 10-9 1-9 9-0 9-3 to French No1 Isabelle Stoehr.

Favourites England also dropped a rare match in the tournament in their opening tie against Ireland, the fifth seeds. Vicky Botwright, the world no8, twice led Madeline Perry. But the Irish star fought back to win 2-9 9-3 3-9 9-2 9-5 .

"The old Madeline's back!" exclaimed Perry, who has been fighting back to full fitness after sustaining a serious head injury last year. "I've had a few 3/2s with Vicky over the years so it's great to come out on top in that one.

"I've got a lot sharper and I'm volleying more, it's getting better each tournament I play. My squash is back to where it was, I just need to work on my concentration now, that's still a bit up and down like it was today - hopefully I'll get lots of practice with all the matches this week!"
