Qualifying finals:

Urquhart Seals Cincinnati Gaynor Cup

Australian Donna Urquhart collected the 11th title of her PSA World Tour career courtesy of a straight games victory over Victoria Lust in the final of the PSA W25 Bahl and Gaynor Cincinnati Gaynor Cup.

With the title on the line both players began tentatively, probing for an early opening as the traded points back and forth. It was Urquhart though who managed to force the first opening, using delicate slight of hand to secure a tightly contest first game 11-9.

She then doubled her advantage after coming through a nervy second game tie-break 13-11 and with a 2-0 lead established, the Australian relaxed in the third to break Lust’s resilience and complete an impressive title winning performance.

“You dream of weeks were it all comes together and you keep playing at the top of your game,” said Urquhart.

“I just can’t believe it happened here, I am so happy.”
Urquhart Halts Elaraby In Cincinnati

Australian Donna Urquhart put in a flawless performance as she halted the run of teenage sensation Rowan Elaraby to reach the final of the 2018 Bahl and Gaynor Cincinnati Gaynor Cup.

Elaraby had scalped Emily Whitlock and Millie Tomlinson to book an unexpected last four berth, but came unstuck against Urquhart as the Australian put on a display of pinpoint accuracy from the off to record a 3-0 win that emphasised the quality of game she produced.

Tournament second seed, Victoria Lust, reached her 23rd PSA Tour final in a physical match with Mariam Metwally, where he superior agility enabled hee to come out on top despite some excellent racquet work from the Egyptian.
Elaraby Streak Continues In Cincinnati To Set Up Semis Clash With Urquhart

Egyptian World Junior champion Rowan Elaraby continued her giant killing run at the Cincinnati Gaynor Cup to follow up her first round defeat of top seed Emily Whitlock with a clinical 3-0 victory over World No.25 Millie Tomlinson.

Elaraby picked up where she left off against Whitlock, controlling proceedings against Tomlinson from the off before withstanding a period of intense pressure in the first game to see it out 11-9 – setting up the platform for a comfortable win.

She’ll now face Donna Urquhart for a place in the final after the Australian saw off Hollie Naughton in straight games.

The bottom half of the draw will see second seeded Victoria Lust take on Maria Metwally of Egypt after they both won their last eight encounters courtesy of a 3-1 scoreline, over Misaki Kobayashi ad Samantha Cornett, respectively.
