Top seed Markus Eriksson thrashed France’s Jaimee Floyd Angele to set up a final clash with Brazilian, Joao Menezes, who registered a comfortable win against Danylo Kalenichenko.

It was supposed to be an even clash, but when Sweden’s Eriksson raced to a 3-1 lead in the opening set, Angele lost all composure and it was downhill from there for the Frenchman as he succumbed to a 6-1 defeat in the first, and offered little resistance to all Eriksson threw at him in the second, leaving the 28-year-old to progress to the final with a 6-1, 6-2 victory.

The second semifinal match went pretty much the same way as the first.

Joao Menezes was quick to close the first set 6-1, and then raced to a 5-0 lead in the second. Kalenichenko, however, avoided being handed a bagel as he took a game. And any attempt to have a comeback was completely quashed as Menezes sealed a 6-1, 6-1 victory.

In the doubles final, Markus Eriksson still had just enough firepower to combine with Maximilian Neuchrist as they took out French duo of Tom Jomby and Remi Boutillier in what was a hard fought 3-6, 6-4, 15-13 win to claim the doubles title.
