Kitchen Prevails In Greenwich Open Final
In a gripping climax to the Women's Harrow Greenwich Open, New Zealander Shelley Kitchen prevailed in 80 minutes to beat England's Alison Waters to win the WISPA World Tour Silver 30 squash title in Greenwich in the US state of Connecticut.

Fourth seed Kitchen claimed her unexpected place in the final after upsetting second seed Vanessa Atkinson in the semis - while Waters, the fifth seed from London, defeated England team-mate Laura Lengthorn-Massaro, the No6 seed who was an earlier shock winner over US favourite Natalie Grainger.

In a final in which the lead changed too many times to count, it was the 28-year-old from Auckland who came back from a game down to triumph 4-9, 10-9, 9-10, 9-3, 9-2 to claim the 12th WISPA World Tour title of her career.


Waters & Kitchen In Shock Greenwich Open Final
England's Alison Waters and New Zealander Shelley Kitchen will meet in a surprise final of the Women's Harrow Greenwich Open after four-game defeats in the semi-finals of the WISPA World Tour Silver 30 squash event in Greenwich in the US state of Connecticut.

Waters, the fifth seed from London, needed 60 minutes to overcome her sixth-seeded England team-mate Laura Lengthorn-Massaro 9-4, 9-0, 4-9, 9-4. In the previous round, the 24-year-old from Lancashire claimed one of the biggest scalps of her career when she despatched USA's top seed Natalie Grainger.

Waters, the 23-year-old world number 12, will celebrate her fourth WISPA World Tour final against Kitchen.

The 28-year-old from Auckland caused a significant upset when she ousted Vanessa Atkinson, the second seed from the Netherlands, 9-0, 9-6, 0-9, 9-4 in 50 minutes.

World No10 Kitchen is now in her 18th Tour final.


Laura & Alison Set Up Shock All-English Semi in Greenwich

Laura Lengthorn-Massaro and Alison Waters set up a surprise all-English semi-final in the Women's Harrow Greenwich Open after overcoming higher-seeded opponents in the WISPA World Tour Silver 30 squash event in Greenwich in the US state of Connecticut.

Lengthorn-Massaro, the sixth seed from Preston in Lancashire, claimed one of the biggest scalps of her career when she despatched top seed Natalie Grainger - fighting back from 1/2 down to defeat the world number four, winner of five Tour titles last year, 9-0, 5-9, 4-9, 9-7, 9-0 in exactly one hour.

Londoner Waters also survived a marathon, coming through 7-9, 9-7, 10-8, 4-9, 9-4 in 70 minutes to oust Egypt's third seed Omneya Abdel Kawy from her first international event of the year.

Order was restored in the lower half of the draw where second seed Vanessa Atkinson beat New Zealand's Jaclyn Hawkes to set up a semi-final clash with another Kiwi, fourth seed Shelley Kitchen who defeated Dutch opponent Annelize Naude 9-5, 9-2, 9-5.
