Mouthwatering draw for the Open de France
French No.1 Camille Serme will headline the Open de France – Nantes 2019 Presented by Tailor Capital when the PSA World Tour Silver tournament takes place between 9th and 14th September at the picturesque Chateau des ducs de Bretagne.
The Open de France – formerly known as the Open International de Squash de Nantes – has this year upgraded to a PSA World Tour Silver event and will use a best-of-three games format up to and including the quarter-finals, before reverting to the traditional best of five for the semi-finals and finals.
The increase in prize money and prestige means Nantes will play host to a top-class draw featuring five of the world’s top 10 players across the men’s and women’s events.
Serme, the highest ranked female French player of all time, will be the star attraction as she competes for the lion’s share of the $73k prize purse, and the 30-year-old from Créteil will feature alongside high-profile players such as World No.7 Sarah-Jane Perry, World No.8 Amanda Sobhy and World No.11 Alison Waters.
