Kitchen Cruises To Crome Win In Calgary
Shelley Kitchen
affirmed her status as New Zealand's top squash player when she despatched compatriot Louise Crome in the final of the Women's Elbow River Casino Calgary Open to claim her 10th WISPA World Tour title at the Bow Valley Club in Calgary, Canada.

As she had all week, the top-seeded Kiwi played with relentless pace, pressure and precision - leaving Crome little opportunity to attack. 

After 31 minutes, Kitchen wrapped up a 9-6, 9-0, 9-3 victory - repeating her win over Crome in the New Zealand Nationals final earlier in the month.

"Although Crome, the sixth seed, played well, she was unable to match the level of play that Kitchen was able to summon all week here at the Elbow River Casino Open," said club professional Ken Cross.

"The patrons of The Bow Valley Club were treated to another incredible display of squash today.   We look forward to hosting the Second Annual Elbow River Casino Open next season.  Based on feedback from sponsors, it should be bigger and better next year!"

The WISPA Tour event was staged to 'squash' Breast Cancer in Calgary.  "It looks like we will be close to hitting our target of raising $30,000.00 for the treatment of Breast Cancer," added Cross

Calgary Kiwi Climax Is Crome/Kitchen Final
An all-New Zealand final of the Women's Elbow River Casino Calgary Squash Open will bring to a climax the WISPA World Tour event at the Bow Valley Club in Calgary, Canada, which is hoping to "Squash" Breast Cancer.

Shelley Kitchen, the top seed from Auckland, continued her dominating ways in the event using a combination of relentless pace and well-placed shots to the front of the court to keep third-seeded Mexican Samantha Teran on the defensive for much of the semi-final match.

Kitchen, who reached the semi-finals without dropping a game, maintained her 'clean sheet' in a 9-5, 9-1, 9-3 victory which takes her into her 16th WISPA final.

"An impressive display of squash by both players non the less has left the patrons of the Bow Valley Club duly impressed by the level of squash these Ladies can play," said club professional Ken Cross.

In the other semi-final, Kiwi Louise Crome came back from one game down to convincingly 'squash' Canadian favourite Runa Reta's hopes of advancing to the final. Crome, the sixth seed also from Auckland, beat seventh-seeded Ottawa-based Reta 4-9, 9-2, 9-1, 9-0.

Crome, who is celebrating her ninth appearance in a WISPA final, is meeting Kitchen in a repeat of the New Zealand National Championship final which took place earlier in the month.

Sharon Shocked In Calgary Clash

Malaysia's No2 seed Sharon Wee became an early casualty in the Women's Elbow River Casino Calgary Squash Open in Canada when she crashed out of the first round of the WISPA World Tour event at the Bow Valley Club in Calgary which is hoping to "Squash" Breast Cancer.

Unseeded Canadian Alana Miller beat Wee 9-5, 9-4, 9-2 to claim her second win over the Malaysian on home soil this year.

The 27-year-old Canadian National champion from Winnipeg will now go on to face compatriot Runa Reta for a place in the semi-finals. Reta, the seventh seed, beat Hong Kong's Elise Ng 9-1, 9-5, 9-3.

Event favourite Shelley Kitchen, the world No11 from New Zealand, cruised into the quarter-finals after beating New Zealand-born Canadian Sarah Parsons 9-0, 9-0, 9-2.
