Grainger Grabs Texas Open Title

US squash star Natalie Grainger successfully defended her Women's Central Bank Texas Open title when she beat England's Laura Lengthorn-Massaro in straight games in the final of the $27,600 WISPA World Tour event at Downtown Club at the Met in Houston, USA.

After claiming an unexpected place in the final following her upset over third-seeded New Zealander Shelley Kitchen in the previous round, third seed Lengthorn-Massaro put in a feisty performance against the favourite from Washington DC.

There were many long exchanges in the second and third games that forced Grainger to remain focused, but in the end the 30-year-old world number four cranked it up a notch to win 9-2, 9-5, 9-6 and secure the crown for the second year in a row.

The win marks Grainger's 18th WISPA Tour title - and the seventh on her new 'home soil' since becoming a US citizen in February 2007.

 

Laura Outlasts Shelley In Texas Upset

England's Laura Lengthorn-Massaro recovered from two games down to upset second seed Shelley Kitchen in the semi-finals of the Women's Central Bank Texas Open to claim an unexpected place in the final of the $27,600 WISPA World Tour squash event at Downtown Club at the Met in Houston, USA.

Though ranked five places lower than the New Zealander in the world top 20, third seed Lengthorn-Massaro marked up her fourth successive Tour win over Kitchen as she battled to the 6-9, 1-9, 9-0, 9-1, 9-2 victory which secured her ninth appearance in a WISPA final.

The 24-year-old from Lancashire will face strong favourite Natalie Grainger, the US and Pan American Games champion from Washington DC who ended Isabelle Stoehr's brave run when she beat the seventh seed from France 10-8, 9-1, 9-5.

Grainger, a former world number one, is celebrating her 36th final appearance on the WISPA Tour.

Stoehr Startles Teran In Texas

France's seventh seed Isabelle Stoehr pulled off a notable upset in the Women's Central Bank Texas Open when she defeated fourth-seeded Mexican Samantha Teran to reach the semi-finals of the $27,600 WISPA World Tour squash event at Downtown Club at the Met in Houston, USA.

Teran led 2/1, but the 28-year-old from Montpellier - who reached the semi-finals of the British Open earlier this month as a qualifier - fought back to record an impressive 9-5, 4-9, 5-9, 9-2, 9-2 win.

Stoehr now faces favourite Natalie Grainger, the US number one who despatched England's sixth seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter 9-0, 9-0, 9-7.

There will be English interest in the other semi-final after third seed Laura Lengthorn-Massaro crushed fifth-seeded Malaysian Sharon Wee 9-0, 9-0, 9-0.

The 24-year-old from Lancashire will now take on New Zealand's Shelley Kitchen after the second seed from Auckland beat former US National champion Latasha Khan 9-3, 9-2, 9-4.
