Semi & Final:
Grainger Cruises To Texas Title
US champion Natalie Grainger delighted the crowd at the Women's Texas Open Squash Championship in Dallas when she cruised to victory in the final to become the first home winner of the WISPA World Tour Silver event in its six years in the US state of Texas.
The top seed from Washington DC burst into the final after beating New Zealand's No4 seed Jaclyn Hawkes in straight games in the semi-finals.
Rebecca Chiu, the No2 seed from Hong Kong, despatched Mexican Samantha Teran, the fifth seed, in the other semi.
But Grainger, in her 29th WISPA World Tour final, was too strong for the former Asian Games champion, winning 9-0, 9-1, 9-4.
Grainger has enjoyed a highly successful three months on squash courts since becoming a US citizen in February. The 29-year-old former world number one followed her victory in the Burning River Cleveland Classic in March in Ohio by winning the US National crown for the first time in Portland.
The Texas Open triumph brings Grainger's WISPA title total to 13.

Quarter-finals:
Teran Takes Out Lloyd-Walter In Texa
Fifth seed Samantha Teran pulled off a notable upset in the quarter-finals of the Women's Texas Open Squash Championship in Dallas when she upset England's third seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter in straight games in the WISPA Silver event in its sixth year in the US state of Texas.
The Mexican despatched Lloyd-Walter, the world No20, 9-7, 9-0, 9-3 and will now face Rebecca Chiu for a place in the final. The second seed from Hong Kong was taken the full distance by No8 seed Louise Crome before beating the New Zealander 9-1, 5-9, 4-9, 10-8, 9-4.
Top seed Natalie Grainger faces New Zealand's No4 seed Jaclyn Hawkes in the other semi-final after both players secured straightforward wins in their quarter-final matches.

1st Round:

Reta Tested In Texas
Canada's Runa Reta was taken the full distance by England's unseeded Suzie Pierrepont in the first round of the Women's Texas Open Squash Championship in Dallas before surviving to make the next round of the WISPA Silver event which is in its sixth year in the US state of Texas.
In only her third Tour event since recovering from a heel injury sustained during November's World Open in Belfast, Pierrepont forged a 2/1 lead against the fifth seed ranked eight places higher in the world.
But Reta fought back to secure a 9-5, 1-9, 6-9, 9-7, 9-5 win and a place in the last eight - where she will take on New Zealand's fourth seed Jaclyn Hawkes, who beat Ireland's Laura Mylotte 9-0, 9-1, 9-1.
Top seed Natalie Grainger was one of only three players to drop games in the first round. The 29-year-old US champion from Washington DC recovered from losing the second game to beat England's Kirsty McPhee 9-2, 4-9, 9-5, 9-2.
