Orla Crowned Flowerbulb Champion

 

Orla Noom secured her second WISPA World Tour title of the year and the fourth of her career with an impressive display of high quality squash against top-seeded Lauren Siddall in the final of the Squash Hillegom Flowerbulb Open in Hillegom in the Netherlands.

 

The 23-year old Dutch girl dominated play from the outset against her one year older and higher-ranked opponent from England - and took the opening game with relative ease.

 

Top seed Siddall, 24, from Pontefract in Yorkshire, fought back to take a 9-6 lead in the second, but it was the determined Noom however who clinched game two on a tie-break.  The event favourite from England did not give up though, making the Hoofddorp heroine earn every single point.

 

Noom proved too strong in the end as the world number 41 claimed her 11-6, 12-10, 11-8 victory to become the third successive Dutch winner of the title.
