El Defrawy Storms To Victory At Play Squash Women’s Open

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.
