Teran Survives Two-Hour Tussle To Strike Liberty Bell Success
Top seed Samantha Teran survived a two-hour marathon battle with second seed Latasha Khan in the final of the Women's Liberty Bell Open to lift the WISPA World Tour squash title at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club in Philadelphia, USA, for the second time in three years.

The Mexican favourite took a two game lead - but Khan, the former US champion celebrating her 35th birthday, made some superb kills and attacking shots to claw her way back to level the match.

At 2-3 in the decider, Khan accidentally caught Teran on the lip - causing a delay of 15 minutes to stop the bleeding.  After calming herself and regrouping, the 26-year-old from Mexico City took the game to record an impressive 9-1, 10-9, 4-9, 6-9, 9-6 victory.

The success marked Teran's eighth WISPA World Tour title success in her tenth final appearance.


Teran
& Khan To Contest Philadelphia Final
Former US champion Latasha Khan will celebrate her 35th birthday taking on Mexican Samantha Teran in the final of the Women's Liberty Bell Open, the WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club in Philadelphia, USA.

Second seed Khan, from Seattle and a seven times winner of the US national squash title, had to fight back from two-games-to-one down to beat Ireland's sixth seed Aisling Blake 9-1, 5-9, 5-9, 9-6, 9-7.

Teran, the 26-year-old favourite from Mexico City, also had to come from behind before overcoming England's eighth seed Lauren Siddall 4-9, 9-2, 9-1, 9-7.

The Mexican is celebrating her tenth appearance in a WISPA final, while Khan is marking her ninth.


Kronemeyer Punishes Pittock In Philadelphia
Karen Kronemeyer
caused the only upset in the first round of the Women's Liberty Bell Squash Open when she upset Australia's fifth seed Amelia Pittock in the WISPA World Tour event in its fourth year at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club in Philadelphia, USA.

The unseeded Dutch player snatched the first two games for the loss of only two points - but Pittock powered back to draw level. But it was Kronemeyer who had the upper hand in the decider, winning 9-2, 9-0, 5-9, 7-9, 9-6 to claim an unexpected place in the quarter-finals.

US interest is led by Latasha Khan, the No2 seed from Seattle who beat English qualifier Lauren Selby 9-4, 9-4, 9-2. On the eve of her 35th birthday, Khan will meet Alana Miller, the No7 seed from Canada, for a place in the semi-finals.
