Serme Cinches 10th PSA Title In Cleveland

An impressive performance from Camille Serme in the final of the 2016 Cleveland Classic, PSA W50, tournament saw the Frenchwoman down Englandís Alison Waters 3-1 to collect the 10th PSA World Tour title of her career.

The 2015 Allam British Open winner, who will hoping to successfully defend her only PSA World Series title next month, lived up to her billing as the number one seed in Cleveland as she came through the draw unscathed, beating Delia Arnold, Joshna Chinappa and Sarah-Jane Perry to set up a title-decider with number two seed Waters.

Waters had secured her place in the final courtesy of a hard-fought 3-2 win over top ranked American Amanda Sobhy but started off strongly to take the opening game of the final 11-7. However Serme managed to up her levels and controlled proceedings from that point onwards, taking the next three games in succession to storm to victory.

ďI felt flat and tied from yesterday and I didnít feel like I could do it today,Ē she said.

ďAlison is very strong so I had to stay with my strategy and play focused, attacking her backhand. I tried hard to never give up and to stay positive and Iím happy it paid off.Ē
 

Perry Punishes Au In Cleveland Classic

#PSAWorldTour

World No.12 Sarah-Jane Perry overturned a 2-1 deficit in the quarter-final of the Cleveland Classic, PSA W50 event to secure a hard-fought victory over Hong Kongís Annie Au and reach the last four.

The Englishwoman found herself a game down to third seed Au and, despite fighting back to level things up thanks to a win on the the tie-break, was soon staring down the barrel of defeat after an impressive Au powered to victory in game three.

However, a fourth game revival saw Perry bring things level once more and she continued her upturn in form to wrap up an 8-11, 12-10, 3-11, 11-3, 11-7 victory.

The number five seed has a difficult semi-final fixture in store next against title favourite Camille Serme. The World No.5 was in fine fettle against Joshna Chinappa and, a second game defeat aside, prevailed in a fairly routine win.

Elsewhere, Alison Waters and Amanda Sobhy have set up a repeat of their recent J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions quarter-final clash after they rose to respective wins over Dipika Pallikal and Olivia Blatchford. Sobhy won the pairís last meeting in New York and, after overtaking Waters in this monthís world rankings, will be hoping for a similar result in Pepper Pike.
