Kasey Cruises To Best Ever Tour Title Success In Montreal

Australian Kasey Brown claimed the biggest Tour title of her career when she beat France's Isabelle Stoehr in the final of the Women's Atwater Cup in Montreal, Canada.

The 22-year-old third seed from New South Wales made her breakthrough in the semi-finals of the inaugural WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Club Atwater when she outplayed favourite Vanessa Atkinson - avenging her defeat by the former world champion from The Hague in last year's World Open in Madrid where she earned only five points.

Brown was again after revenge against fourth seed Stoehr - having lost to the record 11 times French national champion in their two previous meetings in 2007.

Stoehr, the world No22 from Montpellier, took the opening game.  But Brown, ranked seven places higher, romped back to record an impressive 2-9, 9-6, 9-4, 9-0 victory in the climax of the $26,700 event.

The success marks Brown's first WISPA title of the year - but the eighth of her career since her maiden title triumph in the WA Open on home soil in May 2005.

Seeds Suffer As Stoehr & Brown Excel In Montreal

France's Isabelle Stoehr and Australian Kasey Brown will contest a surprise Women's Atwater Cup final after ditching the top two seeds in the semi-finals of the inaugural WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Club Atwater in Montreal, Canada.

Fourth seed Stoehr, the record 11 times French national champion, outplayed Madeline Perry, the No2 seed from Ireland, 9-0, 9-7, 8-10, 9-7 to reach the 14th WISPA final of her career - only five weeks after winning the Des Pyramides Open title on home soil.


In the other semi, third seed Brown faced favourite Vanessa Atkinson for the first time since the former world champion from The Hague dismissed the Australian in last year's World Open in Madrid for the loss of just five points.

But this time Brown was in impressive form. The 22-year-old world No15 from New South Wales beat Atkinson 9-2, 3-9, 10-9, 9-1 to claim her second appearance in a WISPA Tour final this year - and the 15th of her career.


Seeds Safely Through In Montreal

The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the Women's Atwater Cup after straightforward straight games wins in the quarter-finals of the WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Club Atwater in Montreal, Canada.

It was the end of the road for Dutch qualifier Karen Kronemeyer and unseeded Irish international Aisling Blake, both of whom had secured unexpected places in the last eight after notable seeding upsets in the first round.

Fourth seed Isabelle Stoehr, the record 11 times French national champion, dismissed Kronemeyer 9-6, 9-1, 9-4 and will now meet Ireland's Madeline Perry for a place in the final.

Perry, the second seed, was in commanding form as she despatched rising Egyptian star Raneem El Weleily, the No7 seed, 9-7, 9-6, 9-2.

Dutch favourite Vanessa Atkinson defeated Blake 9-5, 9-7, 9-0. The former world number one from The Hague now takes on Australian Kasey Brown, the third seed from New South Wales who beat fifth-seeded Mexican Samantha Teran 9-6, 9-5, 9-1.


Kronemeyer & Blake Burst Into Montreal Quarters

Dutch qualifier Karen Kronemeyer and unseeded Irish international Aisling Blake claimed unexpected places in the quarter-finals of the Women's Atwater Cup after causing notable upsets in the first round of the WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Club Atwater in Montreal, Canada.

Kronemeyer, fresh from her Tour title triumph in last month's NY Capital District Open in New York, recovered from the loss of the first game to beat Italy's No8 seed Manuela Manetta 6-9, 9-6, 9-4, 7-9, 9-7.

The reward for the 26-year-old from The Hague is a clash with fourth seed Isabelle Stoehr, the French number one who despatched Alana Miller, one of two Canadians in the first round, 9-2, 9-6, 9-4.

Blake benefited from the premature withdrawal of US star Latasha Khan, the sixth seed from Seattle who conceded the match after just one game.

The Dublin-born 26-year-old now faces top seed Vanessa Atkinson, the former world number one from the Netherlands who battled for three games to overcome New Zealander Joelle King 10-8, 9-4, 10-8.

Irish interest in Montreal is led by Madeline Perry, the No2 seed from Banbridge, near Belfast. Perry beat Camille Serme 9-5, 9-2, 9-4 - but it was a disappointing outcome for the French qualifier in her final match as a junior.

Serme, who boasts a distinguished junior career which climaxed last month in Norway where she became the first player in history to win a third European Junior (U19) Championship title, turns 19 tomorrow (Friday).
