E.M. Noll Classic: Hutton And Todd Take Titles In Philadelphia



The English duo of Jasmine Hutton and Sam Todd were victorious on Sunday afternoon at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia, with the pair claiming their first titles of 2022 at the E.M. Noll Classic.

The tournament, which has been a qualifying event for the PSA World Championships in the past, had a Challenger 5 menís draw and a Challenger 10 womenís draw this week, and the finals came down to four English players.

The menís final went all the way to five, with No.6 seed Sam Todd and the unseeded Charlie Lee, both having already knocked out multiple players ranked above them, doing battle on Sunday afternoon.

It was Todd, the 18-year-old Yorkshireman, that got off to a quick start, and he was two games up in no time, but Lee fought back. The World No.136 won the next two games, dropping just ten points across the pair, to send the match into a deciding game.

Todd, who had already defeated the American duo of Spencer Lovejoy and Faraz Khan, the latter being the drawís top seed, went on to take the victory, in a quick fire five-game final, winning the decider 11-3 to end the contest after just 43 minutes.



Sam Todd after winning in Philadelphia

He joined Jasmine Hutton in the winnerís circle in Philadelphia, after she won the battle of the 22-year-olds in the womenís final, beating top seed, and compatriot, Lucy Turmel in four games.

The World No.32 won the first game on a tie-break 14-12, and after taking the second 11-6, she was in cruise control in the match. Turmel fought back, dropping just a couple of points to take the third game, before the fourth went to a lengthy tie-break.

It swung both ways in the latter stages of it, with both players staying in it but it was Hutton who was eventually the one to come out on top 19-17 to take her second victory of the 2021-2022 season, following her win at the Capra Baerum Open in Norway.
