French World No.3 Gregory Gaultier lived up to his billing as the number one seed at the 2015 Grasshopper Cup, PSA International 70 event, taking home the title following a commanding 3-0 victory over German Simon Rösner in the final at Zurich’s Puls 5.
Gaultier dominated from the outset against the World No.10 who looked visibly fatigued from spending over 200-minutes on court going into the finale, including a mammoth 94-minute semi-final, and the Frenchman rarely looked troubled as he claimed the 29th PSA World Tour title of his career without the loss of a single game during the tournament.
The man known as the “General’ was in charge throughout the competition and he dispatched all comers to send a strong message out to his main title-rivals ahead of the Allam British Open, which gets underway on May 11, where he’ll be hoping to retain the title he won in 2014.
“I’ve had a fantastic week here, not only because I won, but because the quality of the event has been very high and I’m really happy with the form I have had on court through the week.
“It gives me a lot of confidence going forward to have a good week like this so I’m very happy.”
