The Australian Cameron Pilley (pic) made it ‘third time lucky’ at the Dutch Open 2010 when he defeated local hero Laurens Jan Anjema in four games. The 2nd seed made amends for losing out in the 2008 and 2009 Dutch Open finals, to England’s Nick Matthew and Daryl Selby respectively, by upsetting the seeding and denying the large home crowd a double Dutch victory. After 105 minutes Pilley won 11-7, 11-9, 11-13, 14-12 and this success might secure the Australian’s rise in the world rankings. Defeated Anjema will find himself for the 1st time ever in the world’s top-10 next month.
Pilley destroyed Dutch hopes of double title!
