Gilis Captures Livestuff Open Title
Number two seed Nele Gilis claimed her first ever PSA World Tour title
at the Livestuff Open, PSA W5 event after defeating the tournament's
surprise package Danielle Letourneau in the final.
The Belgian World No.58 came back from 2-0 down to beat Nikki Todd in
the semi-final while Letourneau did the same against number three seed
Hollie Naughton after she had previously eliminated top seed Catalina
Pelaez in the opening round.
It was Letourneau who started on the front foot with a number of skilful
shots from her vast repertoire on display. It appeared as if she was on
course to defeat yet another seeded player after she took the first game
11-7 but a resurgent Gilis fought back in the second to restore parity.
Gilis continued her upturn in fortunes in the third game, cutting off
Letourneau's momentum and using an impressive arsenal of attacking shots
to go ahead with an 11-7 triumph.
Despite Letourneau's best efforts in the final game, Gilis was
irrepressible as she stormed to a 7-11, 11-4, 11-7, 11-3 victory to
break her PSA World Tour title duck.
“I'm over the moon to win my very first PSA World Tour title,” enthused
“I can't wipe this smile off my face!”
