Miller Celebrates Maiden Tour Triumph In Edmonton

Canadian national champion Alana Miller battled for almost an hour to overcome compatriot Runa Reta in the final of the Women's Royal Glenora Club Squash Open to claim her maiden WISPA World Tour title triumph in Edmonton, Canada.

 

It was sixth time lucky for the 26-year-old from Winnipeg, who reached her first WISPA Tour final in the USA in November 2004 - then reached five further before earning her first trophy,

 

After racing to a whitewash first game win in the final, third seed Miller was taken to a tie-break in the second - then dropped the third before re-establishing her authority over Reta, the No2 seed, to win 9-0, 10-8, 4-9, 9-1 in 55 minutes.

 

"This tournament was created by Squash Canada - I would like to take this opportunity to thank Squash Canada for the sponsorship and their initiative to make this tournament happen," said tournament organiser Jeff Williams., the Royal Glenora Club Squash Professional.

 

"I would also like to thank the Royal Glenora Club, Squash Alberta and the Edmonton Squash League for their contributions as well.  Thanks also to Tournament Referee Wes Barlow and all of the refs for their time during the tournament.  Finally I would like to thank the players that travelled both internationally and nationally to come to compete."

 

Miller Sets Up All-Canadian Royal Glenora Club Final

Alana Miller twice came from behind to topple top seed Latasha Khan in a five-game semi-final marathon in the Women's Royal Glenora Club Squash Open to set up a surprise all-Canadian final of the inaugural WISPA World Tour event in the city of Edmonton in Canada.

Third seed Miller, the reigning Canadian Nationals champion, beat her higher-ranked opponent 2-9, 9-7, 4-9, 9-3, 9-3 in 63 minutes to notch up her sixth appearance in a WISPA final.

It was appropriate revenge on home soil for the 26-year-old from Winnipeg - who had lost to Khan, the seven-times US champion from Seattle, in their three previous Tour meetings.

The other semi-final went according to the seedings - with Runa Reta, the second seed from Ottawa, beating fourth seed Orla Noom, from the Netherlands, 9-7, 9-4, 9-4 in 48 minutes to reach her fifth final.

The climax will mark Miller and Reta's first meeting on the WISPA Tour, though the pair contested the Canadian Nationals finals in 2004 and 2007 - with Miller, yet to win a Tour trophy, victorious on both occasions.

Reta Removes Moss To Earn Edmonton Semi

The giant-killing home run of teenager Jackie Moss came to an abrupt end in the Canadian city of Edmonton when the 17-year-old from Calgary went down to compatriot Runa Reta in the quarter-finals of the Women's Royal Glenora Club Squash Open.

 

Moss, appearing in her maiden WISPA World Tour event, upset eighth seed Milou van der Heijden in the first round. But Reta, the world No32 from Ottawa, was far too strong for the youngster in the next round, winning 9-6, 9-3, 9-4.

 

Reta will now face fourth seed Orla Noom - while the other semi-final will feature top-seeded American Latasha Khan and Canada's No3 seed Alana Miller.

 

Semi-final line-up:

[1] Latasha Khan (USA) v [3] Alana Miller (CAN)

[2] Runa Reta (CAN) v [4] Orla Noom (NED)

 

Debutante Moss Motors Into Edmonton Quarters

Canadian teenager Jackie Moss claimed a significant upset in her maiden appearance in a WISPA World Tour event when she beat eighth seed Milou van der Heijden in the first round of the Women's Royal Glenora Club Squash Open to claim an unlikely quarter-final place in this new Tour event in Edmonton, Canada.

 

The 17-year-old from Calgary swept to a 9-2, 9-2, 9-6 victory over her Dutch opponent to line up a clash with compatriot Runa Reta, the No2 seed.

 

Reta, the world No32 from Ottawa who defeated Canadian qualifier Kyla Grigg 9-0, 9-3, 9-6, is expected to meet top-seeded American Latasha Khan in Monday's final.

 

Quarter-final line-up:

[1] Latasha Khan (USA) v [6] Sarah Parsons (CAN)

[3] Alana Miller (CAN) v [7] Rebecca Hazell (CAN)

[4] Orla Noom (NED) v [5] Milja Dorenbos (NED)
