Serme Celebrates Historic European Treble In Norway

RESULTS: European Junior U19 Squash Championships, Stavanger, Norway


Women's final:

[1] Camille Serme (FRA) bt [2] Victoria Lust (ENG) 9-1, 7-9, 6-9, 9-6, 9-1





But after cruising to the final without dropping a game, top seed Serme had a tough fight on her hands against Lust, the second seed from Maulden in Bedfordshire eager to make amends for her straight games defeat in the 2007 final.


Lust forged a two-games-to-one lead, and moved 6/3 up in the fourth. But the experienced 18-year-old from Creteil, winner of the title in 2006 and 2007, courageously fought back to take the match into a decider before romping to victory in the fifth game to win 9-1, 7-9, 6-9, 9-6, 9-1.


"I’m ever so happy to have won that title for a third time," Serme told www.sitesquash.com afterwards. "And that one was the hardest, and the most beautiful of all. This is the one that will stay engraved in my mind!"

In addition to the trophy, Serme also received a special traditional 'Viking' horn from the Norwegian Federation, presented to her by ESF delegate Martin Wren.



"The atmosphere during the match was extraordinary," added Serme. "I want to thank all the people that have supported me, from close or from afar - and especially my team-mates!"

After a rest day, the players have to focus on the European Junior U19 Team Championships, in which France have been named as top seeds.



"Now, we have another battle on our hands," added the record three times European Junior champion Camille Serme. "And we are going to fight it for the colours of our country, France!"
