El Torky Lands Biggest Tour Title In Lagos

Egypt's Heba El Torky landed the biggest WSA World Tour title of her career when she defeated Dutch champion Milou van der Heijden in the final of the Women's Lagos International Classic at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria.

The 23-year-old top seed from Alexandria reached the climax of the WSA Tour 15 squash event without dropping a game.

Her unexpected opponent, the third seed, made it through to the biggest final of her career after upsetting Deon Saffery, the No2 seed from Wales, in the semi-finals.

But El Torky, the world No29, was too strong for the 23-year-old from Eindhoven ranked 20 places lower - winning 11-7, 11-7, 11-9 in 35 minutes to claim this inaugural WSA title in Nigeria's largest city.

The win marks the eighth WSA Tour title of El Torky's career - and her third this year.

 

Milou Makes Lagos Final

Dutch champion Milou van der Heijden claimed an unexpected place in the final of the Women's Lagos International Classic after taking out second seed Deon Saffery in the semi-finals of the inaugural WSA Tour 15 squash event at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria.

The third seed from Eindhoven despatched Saffery, the world No47 from Wales, 11-9, 15-13, 11-9 in 45 minutes to reach the ninth WSA World Tour final of her career - and her second this year.

Third seed Van der Heijden will meet fellow 23-year-old Heba El Torky, the top seed from Egypt, in the final.

The Alexandria-based world No29 needed only 26 minutes to see off fourth-seeded South African Cheyna Tucker 11-4, 11-8, 11-5.

El Torky is celebrating her 10th Tour final - and her fourth in 2014.
 

Locals Bow Out In Lagos Quarter-Finals

Local hopes of success in the inaugural Women's Lagos International Classic expired on the second day of action as Nigerians Udeme James, Ajayi Omolola Adebimpe and Dasbak Longdi bowed out of the quarter-finals of the WSA Tour 15 squash event at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria

James went down 11-6, 11-1, 12-10 to Egypt's top seed Heba El Torky while eighth seed Adebimpe lost 11-2, 11-7, 11-5 to South African Cheyna Tucker.

El Torky and fourth seed Tucker meet in the semi-finals for a place in the final.

Kaduna-born wild card Longdi also suffered a straight games defeat, losing 11-1, 11-2, 12-10 to third seed Milou van der Heijden.

The 23-year-old Dutch player now lines up against Deon Saffery after the No2 seed from Wales prevailed 11-9, 11-8, 11-9 against Linda Hruzikova from Slovakia.
