Schmohl Celebrates Historic Swiss Success In Geneva


 

Zurich-born Gaby Schmohl celebrated a historic breakthrough in the final of the Swiss Open when she became the first Swiss winner of the women's squash title in the 37th year of the event in Geneva.

 

Remarkably, the breakthrough success comes just a year after Nicolas Mueller became the first home winner of the men's crown.  

 

Unseeded Schmohl, making her return to full-time squash after a three-year absence, made her stunning breakthrough in the $4,000 WISPA World Tour event when she battled to a 11-4, 5-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-9 victory over top seed Orla Noom in the semi-finals.

 

Now in the maiden Tour final of her career and spurred on by the excited crowd at Geneva Squash Club, the 29-year-old from Langnau recovered from a game down to topple second-seeded Italian Manuela Manetta 6-11, 11-9, 11-7, 11-7 to secure her remarkable title triumph.
