Whitlock Whittles Down Nunn to Claim Calgary Crown

Top seed Emily Whitlock became the first woman to claim two PSA World Tour titles in 2016 by downing Australia’s Christine Nunn to lift the Calgary CFO Consulting Services Women’s Squash Week, PSA W15 title.

The Englishwoman, whose last piece of silverware came at the end of January at the Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Open, dropped just a solitary game en route to the final against Hollie Naughton in round one, while Nunn scythed through the field with three straight 3-0 wins.

Games one and two were the tightest in the final with each player managing to win one game apiece, both by a 14-12 tie-break scoreline which highlighted the intense action that was unfolding in front of an enraptured crowd.

Whitlock came into her own in the third though and was sensational as her drop volleys and impressive court coverage enabled her to surge into a 2-1 lead for the loss of just two points.

Nunn came back in the fourth as she tried to halt Whitlock’s momentum, but the 22-year-old World No.17 fended off her challenge as she held on to triumph by a 12-14, 14-12, 11-2, 11-6 scoreline to capture her 15th career PSA World Tour title.
 
Plain Sailing For Seeds In Calgary

#PSAWorldTour

The first round of the CFO Consulting Services Women’s Squash Week, PSA W15 tournament saw fifth seed Teh Min Jin flirt with elimination after being pushed all the way to a deciding fifth game by English qualifier Alison Thomson.

Min Jie fell to a shock 2-0 deficit after an onslaught of attacking squash from Thomson put the World No.85 on the cusp of victory but she was unable to capitalise as Min Jie produced a superb comeback to take the win by an 7-11, 12-14, 11-9, 11-7, 11-7 margin.

Top seed Emily Whitlock advanced without any problems after she managed a victory over Hollie Naughton. World No.17 Whitlock, who won the Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Open in January, will meet Min Jie in the next round.

Australia’s Christine Nunn looked to be in fine fettle as she saw off the challenge of home hope Nikki Todd. The Australian took the match 3-1 to reach the last eight stage for the third time in her last four PSA World Tour events where she will play Rachel Arnold who dispatched Mexican qualifier Diana Garcia with a composed performance.

Milou van der Heijden progressed safely through to the next round after prevailing in three games over and she will play Sarah Cardwell whose impressive dismantling of Erin Roberts saw her through to the quarter-final.

Wildcard Danielle Letourneau is also through after her win against seventh seed Lee Ka Yi and she will meet Sachika Ingale who defeated Melina Turk.
