Nouran El Torky Wins Maiden Tour Title
Nouran El Torky
added her name to the list of winners of Women's Squash
Association World Tour titles when she beat home hope Teh Min
Jie in the final of the Malaysian Tour Squash Circuit No8,
the WSA Tour 5 event at Stadium Skuasy in Alor
Gajah in the Malaysian state of Malacca.
The 21-year-old third seed from Egypt made her breakthrough in the
semi-finals with a straight games dismissal of top seed Lotte
Eriksen. The win took the world No90 from Alexandria through to
her third Tour final.
Min Jie, from Selangor, also pulled off a notable semi-final upset,
beating fellow Malaysian Rachel Arnold, the second seed, to
make the first Tour final of her career.
Honours were shared after the first two games of the final - but El
Torky then stepped up the pace before closing out the match 11-6,
9-11, 11-2, 11-6.
"I'm happy to have won my first WSA title in Malaysia," said the
jubilant El Torky afterwards. "I hope that I can play well again in
the next Malaysian Tour in Sarawak."
