Kristian Rautiainen won the men's elite draw of Planeetta Internet Dunlop Cup 2015! Jaakko Vähämaa gave Rautiainen a good run for his prize money and PSA ranking points, but in the end it was the youngster that prevailed 3-1 (11-9 11-8 7-11 11-8). Kristian Rautiainen was definitely the hardest working man in the tournament!
"Very good tournament for me and very well organized. We should have more of these!", the happy champion applauded.
Planeetta Internet Dunlop Cup 2015 proved to be Rautiainen's breakthrough to the senior level as he earned 20 PSA ranking points in addition to his 400€ prize check. Rautiainen also made himself a serious contender for a place in the national squad for the European Team Championships.
Emilia Korhonen continued her great run by beating Hanna Rusila (runner-up in the European masters) in the final match of the ladies' elite draw 3-0 (11-6 12-10 11-6).
Aleksandr Shilov came back strongly when beating Kai Stör in the final of the men's second draw 3-2 (9-11 4-11 11-8 11-9 11-7).
Esa Sutelainen representing the organising team HSRC and sponsor Tukitek beat his team mate Timo Tulonen in the final of the men's third draw 3-0 (11-8 11-6 13-11).
Thank you to all players, fans and organisers for a great atmosphere! See you again next year!
