Line Kjaersfeldt’s week finished with a flourish but Rajiv Ouseph’s stunning display in the men’s singles was the highlight of the week in Glasgow.
Ouseph’s 21-18, 21-10 victory was as one-sided as the scoreline suggests, with Baxter unable to break down the English #1 and put up any sort of resistance to stop Ouseph claiming his second Scottish Open title, without the loss of a game in the progress. Sweden’s Wengberg and Lennartsson put their 2008 defeat in the final behind them to claim the women’s doubles title in another one sided match against the Malaysian pair of Ng and Ng, with the 2nd seeds winning 21-7, 21-13 in 34 minutes. Russia’s top seeded Ivanov and Sozonov defeated last year’s winning pair of Ellis and Mills to claim the men’s doubles title in their most impressive performance of the week, claiming the title 21-19, 21-19.
Line Kjaersfeldt partnered Kim Astrup Sorensen to a stunning upset of the top seeded Polish pair Szkudlarczyk and Wojtkowska in the longest match of the day lasting exactly an hour with the Danish 8th seeds winning 15-21, 21-15, 21-13 to take the mixed doubles title. Kjaersfeldt was also in the women’s doubles final, taking on the 5th seeded Judith Meulendijks of Holland. The 17-year old Dane was playing her 27th and 28th game of the week and the fatigue of the long week had clearly caught up with her as the 5th seeded Meulendijks was rarely tested in her 21-9, 21-19 in just 28 minutes.
