Duncalf Celebrates Soho Square Success In Sharm El Sheikh

 

England's Jenny Duncalf celebrated the biggest WISPA World Tour title success of her life when she beat long-time rival Omneya Abdel Kawy in the final of the inaugural Women's Soho Square Championship, a $41,600 WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Soho Square Savoy Hotel in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh.

 

Abdel Kawy, the third seed from Egypt, boasted a 10/1 career head-to-head record over the 26-year-old from Harrogate on the eve of the match - and Duncalf last beat the former world junior champion more than four years ago.

 

A further victory looked in Abdel Kawy's reach as the Egyptian played some of the best squash of her life to take the first two games for just nine points.

 

But Duncalf battled back to take the next two games and leap to a 6-1 lead in the decider.

 

Abdel Kawy forced the game into a tie-break, but Duncalf held her nerve to win 2-11, 7-11, 11-8, 12-10, 12-10 after 58 minutes.

 

The success marks the fifth Tour title success of Duncalf's career.

 

Top Four Seeds Through To Sharm El Sheikh Semis

 

The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the inaugural Women's Soho Square Championship after surviving, in contrasting styles, the quarter-finals of the $41,600 WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Soho Square Savoy Hotel in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh.

 

Local star Omneya Abdel Kawy, the third seed, was extended for 68 minutes before coming out on top against fifth-seeded New Zealander Jaclyn Hawkes 15-13, 11-13, 11-8, 11-5.

 

"Thank God I got out of it, I didn't play my best," Abdel Kawy told www.squashsite.co.uk afterwards.  "My head wasn't really there today, so hopefully I can put it all together tomorrow."

 

The 24-year-old from Cairo now faces top seed Rachael Grinham, the Cairo-based Australian who defeated Abdel Kawy's Egyptian team-mate Engy Kheirallah 11-9, 11-9, 9-11, 14-12.

 

By contrast, second seed Jenny Duncalf delivered her second successive straight games win in under 30 minutes when she beat English compatriot Lauren Briggs 11-3, 11-7, 11-6. 

 

The world No6 from Harrogate now takes on fellow Briton Madeline Perry.  The fourth seed from Belfast denied the crowd local interest in both semi-finals by beating Egypt's sixth seed Raneem El Weleily 11-13, 11-3, 11-7, 6-11, 11-3.

 

Egyptians Progress In Sharm El Sheikh Championship

 

Egyptians will feature in all but one of the quarter-finals in the inaugural Women's Soho Square Championship after first round action in the $41,600 WISPA World Tour Silver squash event at Soho Square Savoy Hotel in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh.

 

Third seed Omneya Abdel Kawy leads local interest in the event after beating Ireland's Aisling Blake 14-12, 11-4, 11-6.  The 24-year-old world No8 from Cairo now faces New Zealander Jaclyn Hawkes, the fifth seed.

 

The only quarter-final without local interest will be an all-English tussle between second seed Jenny Duncalf and No7 seed Lauren Briggs.

 

While Duncalf, the world No6 from Harrogate needed only 26 minutes to overcome 13-year-old Egyptian qualifier Nour El Sherbini - the sport's youngest ever world champion - 11-5, 11-1, 11-6, Briggs twice had to come from behind before getting the better of unseeded compatriot Sarah Kippax 6-11, 11-6, 3-11, 11-9, 11-9 in 65 minutes.
