Teen Adel Lifts London Open Crown

Egyptian teenager Yathreb Adel cruised through the Women's London Open field to clinch the WSA Tour 5 squash title today at Cumberland Lawn Tennis Club in the England capital without dropping a game.

The third-seeded 18-year-old from Cairo - who is studying at the University of Roehampton in London - claimed her surprise place in the final after dismissing England's No.7 seed Leonie Holt in the semis.

A marathon battle decided the other semi-final when Millie Tomlinson - the English wild card who removed top-seeded Australian Tamika Saxby in the previous round - went down in 68 minutes to Belgian Nele Gilis, the fourth seed.

Adel was in sparkling form in the final, dropping just a single point in the opening game before battling through the next two to overcome Gilis 11-1, 11-8, 11-9 in 40 minutes to win her first Tour title of the year - but the seventh of her career.

"Thrilled to win the London Open today," Adel told her Twitter followers. "I want to thank @Phil_Rushworth for coming down today and @sportroehampton for the endless support #UR."
