Congratulations to Daniel Smethurst (GBR) FBD Men’s Irish Open Champion 2015 and to
Sam Barry and David O’Hare the Doubles Champions
The FBD Mens Irish Open 2015 concluded on Saturday with the singles final between two fellow GBR players. Daniel Smethurst the No 4 seed defeated Lloyd Glasspool 6-3 7-6(2)
The Doubles was an all Irish affair between the junior pairing of Simon Carr & Bjorn Thomson and the Davis Cup Veterans Sam Barry & David O’Hare.
The juniors had seen off some tough opposition to reach the final stages and Barry/O’Hare didn’t have it all their way eventually closing out the match on a scoreline of 6-3 2-6 (10-3)
The highlight of the week was undoubtedly the junior’s involvement in the final stages of the week with Thomson also having a great run in the singles progressing through to the semi-s.
After coming through the qualifiers he proceeded to knock out the No 1 seed Hugo NYS (FRA) in straight sets in the second round.
Lloyd Glasspool was the man who prevented from making his first Futures Final appearance defeating Thomson 6-3 6-4.
