Samantha Celebrates Subway Success

Top seed Samantha Teran produced a 'stellar performance' against second seed Sharon Wee in the final of the Women's Subway Goshen Open to win the $17,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year in Goshen in the US state of Indiana - making up for the disappointment of finishing as runner-up last year.

The Mexican favourite came out on fire in the first game with amazing boasts and backhand drops that left Wee standing - "and the crowd wondering if they would even have a chance to finish their first drink," commented tournament organiser Jim Wellington.

The second saw Wee show her brilliance, both with unreachable short touch and straight shots played with such deception that sometimes Teran could only watch. 

The steady character of the match, and the real battle of games three and four was all Teran.  "She was so fast, played the ball so early, and used the whole court so well that Wee was relegated to a defensive role, and Sharon really needed the initiative to do well," Wellington explained.

"It was a tough fight and a great tournament for the Malaysian number two, and a stellar, attacking performance, worthy of a Tour 12 title for the Mexican star."

The victory marks the third WISPA World Tour title of the year for the 27-year-old from Mexico City who celebrated a career-high world number 19 ranking in April. 

Now with ten tour titles to her name since her maiden success five years ago, Teran boasts a remarkable 83% success rate in WISPA finals!

Teran Takes On Wee In Goshen Final

Mexico's Samantha Teran will face Malaysian Sharon Wee in the final of the Women's Subway Goshen Open after contrasting semi-final victories in the $17,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year in Goshen in the US state of Indiana.

Top seed Teran took 68 minutes to topple USA's fourth seed Latasha Khan 9-6, 4-9, 9-1, 9-3 to reach the final - her 12th on the Tour - for the second year in a row.

England's third seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter took second seed Wee to five games in the other semi - but a ham-string injury in the decider ultimately forced the 26-year-old from Harrow to concede the match after just three points - and 80 minutes.

The 9-7, 5-9, 6-9, 9-7, 3-0 (ret.) victory takes Antwerp-based Wee through to her 16th WISPA Tour final.

Lloyd-Walter Survives Marathon To Reach Goshen Semis

In a quarter-final described by tournament organiser Jim Wellington as "a scorcher of a match which had it all", England's Dominique Lloyd-Walter held off a spirited challenge from Karen Kronemeyer in the Women's Subway Goshen Open to claim her anticipated place in the last four of the $17,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year in Goshen in the US state of Indiana.

Lloyd-Walter, the third seed from Harrow, recovered from a game down to beat her unseeded Dutch opponent 7-9, 9-3, 9-3, 7-9, 9-3 in 73 minutes.

"The best moment of all was at the end of game three," Wellington explained. "Dominique won it, and started to leave the court. Karen then exclaimed 'you're not going to shake my hand?' having forgotten that she won the first game!

"Karen seemed to be mentally and physically finished at this point, but to her credit, came back and won the fourth and had to really fight to do so. It was Lloyd-Walter who was physically and mentally stronger in the fifth, maintaining focus long after she thought she would have to, and coming up with some great shots when she needed them most."

Lloyd-Walter now faces Sharon Wee for a place in the final. The second seed prevailed in an all-Malaysian clash to beat fifth seed Tricia Chuah 9-5, 9-6, 9-4.

There was also local' rivalry in the top half of the draw where former US champion Latasha Khan faced Canadian champion Alana Miller, seeded seven. Khan's length, width, and movement were too good tonight for Miller to make any real inroads as the fourth seed from Seattle battled to a 9-5, 9-7, 9-1 victory in 44 minutes.

Khan will take on Samantha Teran, the Mexican who is now only one match away from reaching the final for the second year in a row. After dropping the first game, top seed Teran went on to beat India's sixth seed Joshna Chinappa 8-10, 9-5, 9-1, 9-1.

Kronemeyer Cruises Into Goshen Quarters

Karen Kronemeyer caused the only upset in the first round of the Women's Subway Goshen Open when she beat Canada's eighth seed Runa Reta in just 23 minutes to earn a surprise place in the quarter-finals of the $17,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year in Goshen in the US state of Indiana.

The 27-year-old from the Netherlands despatched Reta - ranked 12 places higher in the world - 9-2, 9-4, 9-1, and will now face England's third seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter for a place in the last four.

Top seed Samantha Teran made a successful bid to reach the final for the second year in a row when she beat 15-year-old Egyptian qualifier Nouran El Torky 9-2, 9-0, 9-0. The 27-year-old Mexican will now face Indian champion Joshna Chinappa, the sixth seed who beat England's Georgina Stoker 10-8, 9-7, 9-7.
