Tomlinson Takes Honours in Ukrainian Cup

English World No.37 Millie Tomlinson captured her fourth successive PSA World Tour title after beating Egyptian teenager Zeina Farid Mickawy in the final of the Harrow Ukrainian Squash Cup 2, PSA W5 tournament held in Kiev.

Tomlinson’s superb form in 2016 has seen her win five of eight PSA World Tour events, with four of those coming since April, including victory on the first stage of the Ukrainian Cup, and her fine displays continued in Kiev as she rattled off three comfortable victories to reach the final.

Mickawy was appearing in just her fourth PSA World Tour main draw, but produced a number of sublime performances as she surged to her maiden Tour final, upsetting top seed Misaki Kobayashi and home favourite Nadiia Usenko along the way.

Despite there being 178 places between the pair in the World Rankings, the lengthy gap seemed to mean little as Mickawy pushed Tomlinson all the way to a tie-break in game one, only to lose narrowly. However, the 17-year-old Egyptian refused to give in and some fine shot-making enabled her to draw level after taking the second, ending Tomlinson’s incredible run of 15 straight 3-0 wins.

Mickawy’s resurgence was short-lived though in the third as a brutal response from Tomlinson saw her go back ahead after surrendering just a single point, before a nail-biting fourth game went in the Englishwoman’s favour on the tie-break once more to allow Tomlinson to capture the title and extend her unbeaten run to 16 matches.
 
Usenko Flies Ukrainian Flag In Kiev

#PSAWorldTour

World No.76 Nadiia Usenko is the sole home player to make it through to the semi-final stage of the Harrow Ukrainian Squash Cup 2, PSA W5 tournament after she dispatched Switzerland’s Nadia Pfister in straight games.

Usenko went two games to the good after a strong start to the match, but was pushed all the way to a tie-break by her opponent in a gruelling third game.

The 16-year-old Ukrainian held her nerve though and pulled through with an 11-6, 11-9, 16-14 victory to seal maiden PSA World Tour semi-final appearance.

Egypt’s Zeina Farid Mickawy will stand between Usenko and a place in the final after the World No.215 stunned pre-tournament title favourite Misaki Kobayashi, an opponent ranked 158 places above her, with a 3-1 win.

Elsewhere, Millie Tomlinson’s attempts to capture a fourth successive PSA World Tour continued apace as an 11-0 victory in game one of her quarter-final encounter with Iran’s Ailee Nayeri sent her on her way to a comfortable 3-0 triumph and she will take on 16-year-old Egyptian Hana Moataz for a place in the showpiece finale, with Moataz dispatching Marie Stephan.
 
Qualifying Draws To A Close In Ukrainian Cup

#PSAWorldTour

The final qualifying round of the Harrow Ukrainian Squash Cup 2, PSA W5 tournament saw 16-year-old Iranian Ailee Nayeri ease through to her second ever PSA World Tour main draw after beating Anastasia Bondarenko.

Nayeri was making her first PSA World Tour appearance since May’s Grand Sport Armenia 1st Challenger 5 and dropped just one point in the opening game as she powered to the win via an 11-1, 11-4, 11-7 scoreline.

The World No.169 is yet to reach the last eight of a PSA World Tour event and will look to advance to her maiden quarter-final with a victory over Greece’s Eliza Kargioti.

Nayeri’s compatriot Arezoosadat Mousavizadeh will join her in the main draw thanks to a dominant 3-0 win against Yana Kovalska, and she will line up against Switzerland’s Nadia Pfister in round one.

Germany’s Sharon Sinclair and Egypt’s Salma Alameldin have also sealed their places in the next stage after wins over Jenny Haley and Taba Taghavi Rafsanjani, respectively.

Sinclair has a tough fixture with title-favourite Misaki Kobayashi in store next, while Alameldin will clash with Marie Stephan in the main draw’s first round.
