Pierrepont & Gaultier Win Macau Titles

England's Suzie Pierrepont and Frenchman Gregory Gaultier secured the titles in the 2008 Macau Open Squash Championships after contrasting finals in Macau, the first European colony in China.

Top seed Gregory Gaultier, the world No3 from France, sailed through to the final of the men's $52,500 5-star PSA Tour event without dropping a game. 

In the 30th PSA Tour final appearance of his career - and his fifth this year - Gaultier faced tour rival Karim Darwish, the Egyptian who succeeded him as world No2 in the Dunlop PSA rankings.

But it was Gaultier's day as the 25-year-old from Aix-en-Provence despatched second seed Darwish 11-6, 11-9, 11-5 to win the 14th Tour title of his career.

The final of the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event produced a stunning upset as England's sixth seed Suzie Pierrepont overcame her third higher-ranked opponent in three days.

The sixth seed from Sussex, who is now living in the USA, beat Hong Kong's top seed Rebecca Chiu in the semi-finals - then faced second seed Samantha Teran in the climax.

Belying the fact that almost 20 ranking positions separate the pair, 23-year-old Pierrepont battled for five games to beat her Mexican opponent, the world No18, 11-6, 7-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4.

The victory earns Pierrepont the fourth - and biggest - Tour title of her career.

Pierrepont Progresses Into Macau Final

England's Suzie Pierrepont battled to her first ever victory over Hong Kong's Rebecca Chiu when she upset the top seed in the women's semi-finals of the Macau Open Squash Championships in Macau, the first European colony in China.

The sixth seed from Sussex, who is now living in the USA, stemmed a fight back by the favourite in the $16,000 WISPA World Tour event to beat Chiu 11-7, 11-7, 8-11, 9-11, 11-5.

Pierrepont is celebrating her sixth - and biggest - WISPA World Tour final appearance.

The 23-year-old world No37 will now face second seed Samantha Teran after the 27-year-old Mexican recovered from a game down to beat USA's fourth seed Latasha Khan 8-11, 11-6, 11-8, 12-10.

The final of the men's $52,500 5-star PSA Tour event will feature the event's top two seeds.

French favourite Gregory Gaultier, the world No3 from France who has yet to drop a game in the tournament, despatched Pakistan qualifier Aamir Atlas Khan 11-2, 11-5, 11-4.

The 25-year-old from Aix-en-Provence is celebrating the 30th PSA Tour final appearance of his career - and his fifth this year.

Gaultier will meet Egypt's Karim Darwish, winner of the Qatar Classic last month. World No2 Darwish, who overtook the Frenchman in the rankings this month, needed four games to overcome France's No4 seed Thierry Lincou 8-11, 13-11, 11-4, 11-3.

The 27-year-old from Cairo, runner-up in the World Open in October, is celebrating his 23rd Tour final appearance.

Atlas Khan & Pierrepont Make Semis In Macau

Aamir Atlas Khan and Suzie Pierrepont upset the seedings on quarter-finals day in the first Macau Open Squash Championships for seven years when they claimed unexpected slots in the semi-finals of the Tour event in Macau, the first European colony in China.

Atlas Khan, a qualifier from Pakistan, continued his giant-killing run in the men's $52,500 5-star PSA Tour event after defeating Malaysia's fifth seed Mohd Azlan Iskandar in the opening round.

In the quarters, the 18-year-old from Peshawar dropped the first game against third seed Nick Matthew - but fought back to beat the former British Open champion from England 8-11, 15-13, 11-9, 11-5.

The teenager will now face favourite Gregory Gaultier after the world No2 from France despatched Englishman Alister Walker 11-9, 11-2, 11-4.

Suzie Pierrepont, the sixth seed from England, also dropped the first game against Line Hansen in the quarter-finals of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour championship. But the US-based 23-year-old recovered to beat the third seed from Denmark 6-11, 11-9, 11-6, 11-7.

Pierrepont will now take on top seed Rebecca Chiu for a place in the final.

Seeds Suffer In Macau Open

The first Macau Open Squash Championships for seven years produced a flurry of upsets when three seeds fell in the first round of the men's $52,500 5-star PSA Tour event and one women's seed failed to survive the first hurdle in the $16,000 WISPA World Tour championship in Macau, the first European colony in China.

Pakistan qualifier Aamir Atlas Khan scored the biggest scalp after defeating Malaysia's Mohd Azlan Iskandar, the fifth seed, 11-7, 10-12, 11-1, 7-11, 11-7.

Later, fellow qualifier Julien Balbo beat Finland's sixth seed Olli Tuominen 7-11, 11-8, 11-9, 12-10 to set up an all-French quarter-final clash with Thierry Lincou, the fourth seed who had already ousted fellow Frenchman Renan Lavigne 11-9, 11-7, 11-6.

Australia's seed Cameron Pilley also failed to survive the opening men's round. The seventh seed from New South Wales took the opening game against Chris Ryder - but the unseeded Englishman fought back to win 6-11, 12-10, 11-8, 5-11, 11-5 to earn a surprise place in the last eight.

It was a disappointing visit to Macau for near local Elise Ng when the seventh seed from Hong Kong went down 11-7, 11-9, 11-8 in the women's event to English qualifier Lauren Selby.

Selby, from Essex, will now face second seed Samantha Teran after the Mexican beat Japan's Mami Nishio 11-6, 11-5, 11-4.
