Stoehr Celebrates Sannois Success

Isabelle Stoehr celebrated 'home soil' success in the Sannois Women's International - but the top-seeded French champion had to fight back from a game down to defeat England's third seed Lauren Briggs in the final of the inaugural $20,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at OS Sannois in Sannois, France.

Stoehr, the world No15 from Montpellier, took 67 minutes to record the 6-9, 9-7, 10-8, 9-3 victory which gives the 29-year-old the second Tour title in her home country this year - and the 15th of her career.

The success marks the continuation of a fine run this year by the former world No12 who won her record-equalling 11th National title in February, then went on to reach four Tour finals, including victories in the Des Pyramides Open and in Sannois. 

But Stoehr's most notable achievement was reaching the semi-finals of the British Open in May as a qualifier - which included her first ever defeat of Natalie Grinham, the world No2.

Stoehr & Briggs To Contest Sannois Final

England's third seed Lauren Briggs and French favourite Isabelle Stoehr will contest the final of the Sannois Women's International after prevailing in contrasting semi-finals in the inaugural $20,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at OS Sannois in Sannois, France.

Stoehr, the world No15 from Montpellier, defeated Dane Line Hansen, the fourth seed, 9-0, 9-7, 9-4 in 42 minutes to reach the 15th Tour final of her career.

The recently-crowned European champion is also looking for her second WISPA title on home soil this year.

It took Briggs 63 minutes to reserve her surprise place in the Sannois final. The 28-year-old from London recovered from two games down to upset second-seeded Dutch opponent Annelize Naude to win 5-9, 2-9, 9-3, 9-4, 9-7.

Briggs, who is celebrating her seventh Tour final appearance, is also looking for her second win in France this year - after clinching the Carcassonne Open crown last month!

Seeds Sail Into Sannois Semis

The top four seeds comfortably came through the quarter-finals of the Sannois Women's International to take their anticipated places in the semi-finals of the inaugural $20,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at OS Sannois in Sannois, France.

French favourite Isabelle Stoehr took on unseeded Nour El Tayeb, one of two Egyptian teenagers who caused impressive first round upsets. But 15-year-old El Tayeb injured her hamstring in her marathon victory over England's seventh seed Laura Hill and had to concede her quarter-final after just seven minutes.

"I played a good first match against English girl Emma Chorley, then against so talented Nour El Tayeb who had a tough match against Laura Hill this morning," Stoehr, the world No15, said after her 9-1, 4-0 win.

"Iím now playing the semi against Line Hansen. Despite the end of the season, I still have the desire to do well, and even more when Iím playing in front of a French audience. The players are delighted with the organization here, the welcoming has been superb."

Fourth seed Hansen denied the organisers an all-French semi after beating eighth seed Camille Serme 9-2, 9-0, 9-6.

England's Lauren Briggs ended Heba El Torky's Sannois run, beating the 17-year-old Egyptian qualifier 9-3, 9-5, 9-1. Third seed Briggs will face Annelize Naude, the No2 seed from the Netherlands who gained her place in the last four when English opponent Lauren Siddall retired injured with the score standing at 9-5, 9-0, 4-0.
