Unstoppable Grainger Claims Atwater Cup In Canada

 

US squash star Natalie Grainger maintained her relentless charge on the WISPA World Tour this year by winning the Women's Atwater Cup in style at the Atwater Club in Montreal, Canada.

 

The new world number two from Greenwich - who has already picked up three Tour titles this year, plus her third US national crown - reached the final of the $25,000 WISPA event without dropping game.

 

After dismissing Australia's defending champion Kasey Brown in the semi-finals, Grainger faced England's Laura Lengthorn-Massaro after the third seed scored a stunning upset over top seed Natalie Grinham, the world No4 from the Netherlands.

 

But second seed Grainger was too strong for the 25-year-old world No7 from Preston in the final, winning 11-6, 11-9, 11-4 to extend her unbeaten Tour run this year to 16 matches!

 

The triumph brings Grainger's career title haul to 23.  But, interestingly, whilst the 31-year-old former South African has won 10 Tour titles in the USA since becoming a US citizen in February 2007, the Atwater Cup success marks Grainger's first ever title triumph in Canada!

 

 

Lengthorn-Massaro Makes Montreal Final

 

England's Laura Lengthorn-Massaro scored her second successive upset this year over world No4 Natalie Grinham to reach the final of the Women's Atwater Cup.

 

The 25-year-old world No7 from Preston, the third seed, came back from a game down to topple top seed Grinham, the former world No2 from the Netherlands, 6-11, 11-8, 11-7, 7-11, 11-8 in 65 minutes in the semi-finals of the $25,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at Atwater Club in Montreal, Canada.

 

It was after four defeats in a row since 2004 that Lengthorn-Massaro first beat Grinham in last month's KL Open in Malaysia.

 

The England international, now in her first WISPA Tour final of the year - and the 11th of her career - will face the in-form US champion Natalie Grainger, the second seed.

 

Grainger, yet to drop a game in the event, cruised to an 11-3, 11-3, 11-4 victory in just 25 minutes over Australia's fourth seed Kasey Brown to extend her unbeaten Tour run this year to 15 matches.

 

The 31-year-old from Greenwich, now in her 41st Tour final, is enjoying one the best periods of her career after winning three Tour titles already this year and rising to a five-year high No2 in this month's WISPA world rankings.

 

Grinham & Grainger On Course For Atwater Cup Clash

 

US squash star Natalie Grainger, who replaced Natalie Grinham in second place in this month's WISPA Women's World Rankings, is on course to meet her Dutch rival in the final of the Women's Atwater Cup after beating local hope Alana Miller in straight games in the quarter-finals of the $25,000 WISPA World Tour event at Atwater Club in Montreal, Canada.

 

Grainger, the three-time US champion from Greenwich, defeated Miller, the three-time Canadian champion from Winnipeg, 11-7, 11-6, 11-8 - and will now face fourth seed Kasey Brown in the semi-finals.

 

In a close encounter with Mexico's Samantha Teran, Australian Brown beat the fifth seed 13-11, 11-13, 11-7, 13-11.

 

Top seed Natalie Grinham, playing in only her second tournament of the year, brushed aside England's Suzie Pierrepont 11-4, 11-2, 11-6 and will now face another English opponent Laura Lengthorn-Massaro for a place in the final.  Fourth seed Lengthorn-Massaro beat New Zealand's Jaclyn Hawkes 11-8, 11-9, 3-11, 11-5.
