Camille Captures Creteil Crown

 

Creteil squash star Camille Serme provided the perfect climax to the Women's Internationaux de Creteil by winning the $12,000 WISPA World Tour event in its third year at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in Creteil, in the outskirts of the French capital Paris.

 

It has been a fairy-tale week for the nineteen-year-old from Creteil who won the French national crown for the first time before heading home to compete in this international event in the club where she learned to play squash with her life-long coach Philippe Signoret.

 

The third seed faced event favourite Manuela Manetta, the 2007 champion from Italy whom she had never before beaten.

 

Defying the seven-place gap in the world rankings, Serme twice recovered from leads by Manetta before clinching her stunning 5-11, 12-10, 6-11, 11-8, 11-7 victory to become the first French winner of the title.

 

The win takes Serme's WISPA World Tour title triumphs to three - but is her first on home soil.

 

Serme Surges Into Creteil Final

 

It was third time lucky for the organisers of the Women's Internationaux de Creteil when home town star Camille Serme upset second seed Joshna Chinappa in straight games to provide local interest in the final of the $12,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its third year at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in Creteil, in the outskirts of the French capital Paris, for the first time.

 

Serme, the nineteen-year-old from Creteil who won the French national crown for the first time last week, followed her victory over fellow countrywoman Celia Allamargot in the quarter-finals by beating Chinappa, the world No35 from Chennai, 11-5, 11-7, 11-3.

 

The French teenager will face top-seeded Italian Manuela Manetta, the 2007 champion.  Manetta was taken the full distance by Indian star Dipika Pallikal before beating the 17-year-old fifth seed 11-6, 11-7, 9-11, 8-11, 13-11.

 

Serme Saunters Through To Creteil Quarters

 

Home town girl Camille Serme gave her fans much to cheer about when she beat compatriot Laura Pomportes in straight games in the first round of the Women's Internationaux de Creteil to reach the quarter-finals of the $12,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in the Creteil in the outskirts of the French capital Paris.

 

Serme, the nineteen-year-old third seed from Creteil who won the French national crown for the first time last week, beat Pomportes 11-2, 11-2, 11-4 - and will now face another fellow countrywoman Celia Allamargot for a place in the last four.

 

Allamargot, the No7 seed from Marseille, defeated Russian Irina Assal 11-7, 11-7, 11-4.

 

Italian Manuela Manetta, seeded to win the title for a second time since 2007, ended local player Maud Duplomb's hopes, beating the 23-year-old from Lyon 13-11, 11-8, 11-8.  Manetta, the world No36 from Parma, now lines up against Lucie Fialova after the eighth seed from the Czech Republic beat English qualifier Leonie Holt 14-12, 11-7, 6-11, 11-8.
