REPORTS

Tsz-Ling Takes Bahria Town International Title

Top seed Liu Tsz-Ling recovered from a game down to beat Egypt’s Amina Yousry in the final of the 3rd Bahria Town International Women’s Squash Championship, PSA W15 tournament - lifting her ninth PSA World Tour title in the process.

The 24-year-old from Hong Kong rose to the final after claiming three straight 3-0 victories while World No.63 Yousry, aged just 15, toppled second seed Nadine Shahin and defending champion and home favourite Maria Toorpakai Wazir en-route to a second successive PSA World Tour final.

Yousry, who has undergone a meteoric rise up the world rankings compared to her World No.206 ranking this time last year, outlined her credentials as a future top-tier player as she took an unexpected first game lead against an opponent ranked 22 places above her.

Tsz-Ling battled back though and levelled proceedings after prevailing on the tie-break before she stepped it up a gear in the third to go ahead for the first time in the match.

With Yousry’s resistance broken, Tsz-Ling ramped up the pressure in game four to take a 10-12, 12-10, 11-7, 11-6 victory and win her first PSA World Tour event of 2016.
 
Home Hopes Reach Bahria Town International Main Draw

#PSAWorldTour

Pakistani duo Sammer Anjum and Rushna Mehboob sealed their spots in the main draw of the 3rd Bahria Town International Women’s Squash Championship, PSA W15 tournament after claiming straight games victories over Madina Zafar and Zoya Khalid, respectively, on home soil.

Anjum, who received a bye in the first qualifying round, dominated her fixture with Zafar and sent her opponent into all four corners of the court with regularity as she romped to an 11-5, 11-6, 11-9 victory in just 21 mins.

Hong Kong’s Lee Ka Yi lies in wait for Anjum in the opening round of the main draw where Anjum will aim to reach the quarter-final of a PSA World Tour event for only the third time in her career.

Mehboob, meanwhile, eased past Khalid in a stunning 15-minute salvo and moves on to face Nouran El Torky in the next round.

Meanwhile, Malaysia’s Aika Azman earned her place in the main draw with a 3-1 victory over Farah Momen. Azman has reached the quarter-final stage at least at her last five PSA World Tour tournaments but will need to at her best to defeat third seed Maria Toorpakai Wazir next if she is to keep that run going.

Catur Yuliana was the final qualifying round’s other victor after she prevailed in a tense five-game battle with Muqaddas Ashraf and she will meet Tong Tsz-Wing in round one of the main draw.
