Beddoes Beats Favourite Chuah For Colombo Title
England's Emma Beddoes upset top-seeded Malaysian Tricia Chuah in the final of the Women's Colombo Open in Lisbon to win her maiden Tour title in the first WISPA World Tour squash event to be held in Portugal.

The 22-year-old second seed from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire - who was struck down by a kidney infection only weeks before the event - dropped only one game en-route to her second Tour final in two months.

Displaying the same composure and rhythm that had characterised her semi-final win over experienced Dutch opponent Karen Kronemeyer, Beddoes despatched the Malaysian favourite - ranked 38 places higher in the world - 9-7, 9-5, 9-5 in 43 minutes.

"Im speechless," said former British National Junior champion Beddoes afterwards.  "I didnt come to Lisbon with any expectations after my illness. 

"The game last night was hard and I did wake up a little tired but I thought that this was the last match left so I should try and push through it.Now my legs feel like lead!"

Top Seeds In Lisbon Final
The top two seeds will fight out the final of the Women's Colombo Open in Lisbon after prevailing over unexpected opponents in the semi-finals of the first WISPA World Tour squash event to be held in Portugal.

Malaysian favourite Tricia Chuah faced unseeded English opponent Fiona Moverley, who earlier in the day had upset third seed Milou van der Heijden. A second upset looked on the cards as the 20-year-old from Hull took the first game and forced the second into a tie-break.

After 48 minutes, however, Chuah survived 7-9, 10-9, 9-1, 7-9, 9-1 to reach her fourth WISPA final - but her first since September 2005.

Chuah will face another English opponent Emma Beddoes - the second seed from Leamington Spa who battled for 63 minutes to overcome Karen Kronemeyer, the sixth seed from the Netherlands, 9-5, 5-9, 9-5, 9-6 to reach the second Tour final of her career.

Moverley Moves Through In Lisbon Opener
England's unseeded Fiona Moverley caused the only upset in the first round of the Women's Colombo Open in Lisbon when she beat seventh-seeded compatriot Lauren Selby in the first WISPA World Tour squash event to be held in Portugal.

In a setting befitting a major championship, the WISPA players took to the glass court in this new event - the second in the WISPA Premiere Series which encourage new events in new countries. The ASB court, complete with glass floor, was sited in the Central Plaza of the Centro Colombo, immediately surrounded by seating stands and more than 400 stores.

Moverley, 20, from Hull, despatched Selby 9-2, 9-7, 9-5 in 32 minutes and will now face Milou van der Heijden, the third seed from the Netherlands who beat England's Irena Critchley 9-0, 9-4, 9-5.

Austrian champion Birgit Coufal, the fourth seed, defeated France's Coline Aumard 9-5, 9-5, 9-1 and will now play sixth seed Karen Kronemeyer, from the Netherlands, in the quarter-finals.

Aumard, an 18-year-old from Paris, summed up the reaction of several of the players after she exited the see-through court. "The floor was an especially new thing for me, as I was unused to the grip. But it was really nice to play in a big arena for the first time and I had great fun."
