Vielen Dank am Pascal Bruhin für das Organisieren von diesem Turnier.»

Herren Turnier - Strong Nici Müller wins the Titel
Nici takes the title with a very sharp and strong performance. His accuracy and ball control proofed to be to much today for Swiss Nr.2 Dimitri Steinmann. Not that he would surrender but today he was not strong enough to beat his friend.
Kommentar Nici Müller:
I would really like to thank the Swiss/Liechtenstein Federation for putting up the tournament, It is a difficult time for all the professionals Squash players with the currant situation. I am very happy with my squash this week, played some solid squash to bring home the title. Thanks to all my personal sponsors for their outgoing support and big congrats to Amber on a stellar performance winning her biggest PSA.”
Kommentar Dimitri Steinmann:
Always tough to play against Nici as he knows me inside-out. I played some really good squash in patches but also made many mistakes and gave away some easy points, which you simply can not do against a player of his level. He was the better player today and I take my hat off to him. Overall, I am still happy with my performance throughout the tournament and also hungry for more.
With two good finals the Liechtenstein Open came to a good end. Held under the very strict health rules of Swiss Olympic and Swiss Squash, it was very special to run a tournament under such circumstances.
A big thank goes to the Squash House in Vaduz and the family Maier, who have been very supportive and provide such a professional environment.
Another important helper was Daniel Bachmann, who has been in contact with PSA Live TV. It was a great honour for us that most of the matches were streamed live to give the players the opportunity to show their quality.
Swiss Squash is very happy about the professionalism of our players and the quality they provided during that weekend. It is a joy to watch how they presented themselves and took advantage of the chance to show their ability.
