RESULTS: WSA du Comite du Val de Marne, Creteil, France
Clinches Creteil Crown
Second seed Coline Aumard fully exploited home club advantage
when she upset favourite Lucie Fialova in the final of the
inaugural WSA du Comite du Val de Marne to win the WSA
Tour 5 squash title at Centre Sportif Marie-Thérèse Eyquem
in Creteil, France.
The Paris-born 25-year-old (pictured above with Fialova)
reached the final - her ninth on the WSA Tour - after despatching
Toulouse-based third seed Laura Pomportes in straight games
in a 25-minute semi-final.
Fialova, the world No43 from the Czech Republic, needed almost twice
as long to overcome fourth-seeded French opponent Cyrielle
Peltier in four games in the other semi. The win also notched up
Fialova's ninth Tour final appearance.
But Aumard, now ranked three places higher than her opponent, was in
commanding form in the final as she saw off Fialova 11-5, 11-5, 11-7
in 42 minutes to claim her second Tour victory over the 26-year-old
from Prague in just under a year.
The triumph gives Creteil-based Aumard the fifth WSA Tour title of
her career - but her third in just two months.
