Egyptian number one seed Kanzy Emad El Defrawy lifted her third PSA
World Tour title of 2016 after a dominant win over Canada’s Nicole
Bunyan in the final stage of the 2016 Bitar Cosmetics – Play Squash
Women’s Open, PSA W5 tournament held at the McLean Squash Center.
El Defrawy, who has also won the Richmond Open and the Amman Open this
year, was the highest ranked player to take part in the tournament at
World No.41 and, after receiving a bye in round one, showed her class to
defeat compatriot Farah Abdel Meguid and then Colombian Catalina Pelaez
to earn her final berth.
23-year-old Bunyan, meanwhile, achieved a landmark week in Virginia as
she fought her way through to a first ever PSA World Tour final, notably
downing South African twins Lume and Elani Landman en route.
El Defrawy is ranked 49 places above Bunyan on the World Rankings, and
overwhelmed the Canadian by playing at a lighting-quick tempo and
ripping a number of punishing drives to the back of the court.
The encounter lasted just 20 minutes, with El Defrawy dropping just
seven points across three games to capture her second PSA World Tour
crown of the 2016/17 season.
