Power & Kawy Triumph In Rye

After securing only one PSA Tour title in 2004, Canada's Jonathon Power kicked off the New Year in fine style by winning the men's trophy in the Marsh & McLennan Apawamis Squash Open in Rye, USA.  Egypt's Omneya Abdel Kawy claimed the women's title after a five-game victory over England's Vicky Botwright.

Second seed Power, the 30-year-old former world No1 from Montreal, had reached the final against Egypt's Karim Darwish, the No1 seed and defending champion, without dropping a game.

But after a lengthy tie-break in the opener, it was Darwish that took the lead.  Power fought back, however, and won the next three games to take the 34th PSA title of his career in a 10-11 11-5 11-10 11-2 scoreline.

In the women's final, top seed Kawy twice fell behind against Botwright, the No2 seed.  But the 19-year-old world junior champion from Cairo maintained the pressure to pull off a 5-9 9-1 2-9 9-7 9-5 victory to earn the second WISPA World Tour title of her career - almost exactly a year after securing the first.

Top Seeds In Apawamis Final
  


The two top seeds will contest both the men's and women's finals in the Marsh & McLennan Apawamis Squash Open after contrasting victories in the semi-finals in Rye, USA.

Egypt's Karim Darwish, the No1 seed and defending champion, had to come from two games down to overcome Australia's third seed Dan Jenson 10-11 9-11 11-6 11-8 11-4 to reach his 15th PSA Tour final. 

In the other men's semi-final, Canada's second seed Jonathon Power brushed aside Frenchman Renan Lavigne, the fourth seed, 11-3 11-4 11-2 in his third successive straight games win in the event.

Egypt's favourite in the women's event needed four games to reach the final.  Omneya Abdel Kawy, from Cairo, lost the first game against France's fourth seed Isabelle Stoehr but powered back to win 4-9 9-5 9-2 10-8.

Her opponent in the final will be England's No2 seed Vicky Botwright, the 9-7 9-1 9-3 victor over compatriot Jenny Duncalf.

Egyptian Favourites Succeed In Contrasting Season Openers

Top seeds Karim Darwish and Omneya Abdel Kawy, both from Cairo in Egypt, won their first round matches in the Marsh & McLennan Apawamis Squash Open to begin their new year on the international circuit in contrasting styles in Rye, NY, in the USA.

Darwish, the world No8 whose victory in the event last year began a run of three successive titles on the PSA Tour, was twice pegged back by unseeded Canadian Shahier Razik before scrambling to a 11-9 5-11 11-4 10-11 11-6 victory.

Kawy, however, was less troubled by her Canadian opponent in the first round of the women's event.  The 19-year-old world junior champion sauntered to a 9-1 9-2 9-3 win over qualifier Melanie Jans Burke to set up a quarter-final meeting with USA's Latasha Khan.
