Camille Captures Alexandria Crown

 

Camille Serme claimed the biggest WISPA World Tour squash title of her career when she toppled top seed Omneya Abdel Kawy in straight games in the final of the $25,300 Women's Alexandria Sporting Club Open at Alexandria Sporting Club in Alexandria, Egypt.

 

Abdel Kawy, the world No7 from Cairo, was expected to be the first local player since 2005 to lift the Alexandria tropy.

 

But eighth seed Serme, the 20-year-old three-time European Junior Champion from France had other ideas and pulled off her third upset in three days to beat the favourite 11-7, 11-9, 11-4.

 

The title triumph marks the fifth Tour title of Serme's career - and the third this year!

 

Serme Surges Into Alexandria Final

 

France's eighth seed Camille Serme scored her second upset in 24 hours in the Women's Alexandria Sporting Club Open when she beat fifth seed Sarah Kippax to reach the final of the $25,300 WISPA World Tour squash event at Alexandria Sporting Club in Alexandria, Egypt.

 

The 20-year-old three-time European Junior Champion from Creteil made her breakthrough in the quarter-finals when she despatched local star Engy Kheirallah, the fourth seed who hails from the Egyptian city.

 

In the semis, Serme recovered from a game down to topple English opponent Kippax 4-11, 11-9, 11-5, 13-11.

 

The win takes Serme through to the eighth WISPA final of her career - but the biggest by a considerable margin.

 

In the final. the French star will meet  Omneya Abdel Kawy, the top seed from Egypt who is also celebrating her first time in the Alexandria Sporting Club event climax.

 

Abdel Kawy, the world No7 from Cairo, also battled for four games before overcoming Lauren Briggs, the third seed from England, 11-9, 11-3, 10-12, 13-11.

 

It is the favourite's 18th career Tour final - and the second in a row in her home country after winning the Hurghada International in April.

 

Raneem Rattled By Comeback Queen Kippax

 

England's fifth seed Sarah Kippax scored one of the most courageous wins of her career when she battled back from two games down in the Women's Alexandria Sporting Club Open to upset local star Raneem El Weleily, the second seed, to reach the semi-finals of the $25,300 WISPA World Tour squash event at Alexandria Sporting Club in Alexandria, Egypt.

 

Alexandria-based El Weleily, the reigning World Junior Champion and World Universities Champion, dominated the first two games and looked to be heading to her anticipated victory.  But Kippax, who had survived a close five-game first round encounter only 24 hours earlier, turned the tables in game three and went on to win 3-11, 9-11, 12-10, 13-11, 11-6 in a match described as 'the best of the day'.

 

The 26-year-old from Halifax in Yorkshire will face surprise opponent Camille Serme for a place in the final after the eighth seed from France pulled off another Egyptian upset by beating fourth seed Engy Kheirallah 13-11, 11-9, 13-11. 

 

"It wasn't one of Engy's best days," said tournament spokesman Ahmed El Shazly of the former Alexandria queen who is now based in Cairo with her husband Karim Darwish, the men's world number one.

 

Egypt's hopes for success now remain solely in the hands of Omneya Abdel Kawy, the top seed who beat Ireland's Aisling Blake 11-7, 11-3, 6-11, 11-9.

 

Abdel Kawy will face third seed Lauren Briggs who survived an extraordinary all-English clash with sixth seed Suzie Pierrepont - recovering from the loss of a first game in which she failed to record a single point to win 0-11, 15-13, 8-11, 13-11, 11-6 after 65 minutes.

 

Egyptian Seeds Flourish In Alexandria

 

The local favourites did not disappoint on the opening day of main draw action in the Women's Alexandria Sporting Club Open as the three seeded Egyptians took their anticipated places in the quarter-finals of the $25,300 WISPA World Tour squash event at Alexandria Sporting Club in Alexandria, Egypt.

 

Omneya Abdel Kawy and Raneem El Weleily kept alive hopes of an all-Egyptian final with straight games first round wins.  Event favourite Abdel Kawy, from Cairo, despatched fellow countrywoman Nouran El Torky, a qualifier, 11-5, 11-8, 11-4 and will now face Ireland's Aisling Blake after the seventh seed resisted a spirited display by 13-year-old Alexandria star Nour El Sherbini before winning 11-13, 13-11, 11-5, 11-8.

 

El Weleily, the highest-ranked of six Alexandria players in the draw, despatched New Zealander Kylie Lindsay 13-11, 11-4, 11-3.  The 20-year-old second seed will now meet Sarah Kippax but the fifth seed from England was taken the full distance by Nour El Tayeb before beating the unseeded 16-year-old Egyptian 13-11, 13-11, 10-12, 9-11, 11-5.

 

Cairo-based Engy Kheirallah, the inaugural Alexandria Sporting Club Open champion in 2005, marked her return to the club where she used to be based by comfortably beating 15-year-old compatriot Kanzy Emad El-Defrawy 11-6, 11-8, 11-8.  The fourth seed will now face France's Camille Serme, the No8 seed, for a place in the semi-finals.
