Barker & Moverley Celebrate English Santiago Successes


Top seeds had mixed successes in the Santiago Open "Trofeo Concello de Santiago" where Fiona Moverley upset favourite Lauren Siddall in the women's final, but No1 seed Peter Barker prevailed in the men's climax to produce an English squash double in the international events at Shopping Center Area Central in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.


Third seed Moverley, from Hull in East Yorkshire, reached the final of the women's $6,800 WISPA World Tour event after upsetting New Zealand's No2 seed Kylie Lindsay.


After dropping the first game in the final to experienced Yorkshire compatriot Lauren Siddall, the 22-year-old battled back to take the lead - but world No39 Siddall recovered to take the match into a fifth game decider.


However, Moverley stuck to her task and closed out the match 6-11, 11-8, 11-8, 9-11, 11-7 to record her maiden title triumph on the WISPA Tour.


Peter Barker faced his England team-mate Adrian Grant, the No2 seed, in the climax of the men's $41,000 4-star PSA World Tour event - in a match that was not only the fifth Tour meeting of the pair's career, but also their second in a Tour final this year.


Predictably, the two left-handers from London fought out an evenly-contested encounter - with only two world ranking positions separating the pair.


But it was eventually world number nine Barker who clinched victory, beating Grant 11-9, 11-7, 9-11, 11-9 in 78 minutes.


The triumph marked the 14th Tour title of Barker's career, his second of the year - but the Londoner's first in Spain.


Santiago Celebrates Two All-English Finals


A pair of English players will contest both finals in the Santiago Open “Trofeo Concello de Santiago” after Fiona Moverley defied the seedings to upset second-seeded New Zealander Kylie Lindsay in the semi-finals of the women's $6,800 WISPA World Tour squash event at Shopping Center Area Central in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.


The 22-year-old from Hull, seeded three, stemmed a second game fightback by Lindsay to win 11-3, 9-11, 11-7, 11-7 in 25 minutes - and reach the second Tour final of her career.


Moverley will face favourite Lauren Siddall, who also took four games to end Nicolette Fernandes' giant-killing run, beating the unseeded 26-year-old from Guyana 11-9, 11-8, 5-11, 11-6.


Siddall, the 25-year-old world No39 from Pontefract in Yorkshire, is celebrating the sixth final of her career.


England team-mates Peter Barker and Adrian Grant, both left-handers from London, will contest the predicted final of the men's $41,000 4-star PSA World Tour event.


Top seed Barker, ranked nine in the world, battled through to the 19th Tour final of his career by beating third-seeded Australian Stewart Boswell 10-12, 11-2, 11-5, 11-7 in 53 minutes.


Second seed Grant had an easier ride against surprise package Renan Lavigne.  The unseeded Frenchman, who celebrated his 35th birthday at last week's World Open in Kuwait, reached the last four against the odds after upsetting both fourth seed Olli Tuominen and seventh seed Tom Richards.


But the semi-final was a match too far for the world No35 from Marseille as Grant closed out the match 11-3, 11-7, 13-11 in 30 minutes.


The Leeds-based 29-year-old is marking his 24th Tour final and looking for his second PSA title of the year.

Renan Rallies On In Santiago


A rejuvenated Renan Lavigne scored his second upset in two days in the Santiago Open “Trofeo Concello de Santiago” when he beat fourth-seeded Finn Olli Tuominen in the quarter-finals of the $41,000 4-star PSA World Tour squash event at Shopping Center Area Central in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.


The unseeded 35-year-old from Marseille, who ousted 23-year-old seventh seed Tom Richards in the first round, recovered from a game down to overcome Tuominen, the world No24, 10-12, 11-8, 11-9, 11-9 in 49 minutes.


Lavigne, ranked 35 in the world, now faces second seed Adrian Grant for a place in the final.  But Englishman Grant himself had to come from behind to conquer Indian number one Saurav Ghosal 11-6, 2-11, 5-11, 14-12, 11-5 in a 59-minute battle.


The other men's semi-final will also have English interest, when Londoner Peter Barker takes on Australian Stewart Boswell.  Top seed Barker defeated Italian Davide Bianchetti, the No8 seed, 11-9, 11-8, 11-6, while Boswell dismissed fifth seed Hisham Mohd Ashour – the Egyptian who claimed an unexpected place in the last 16 of the World Open last week in Kuwait - 11-3, 11-5, 11-9 in just 26 minutes.


Guyana's Nicolette Fernandes maintained her winning run in the women's $6,800 WISPA World Tour championship when she beat France's Laura Pomportes 14-12, 11-2, 11-6.


The unseeded UK-based 26-year-old will now face Lauren Siddall for a place in the final.  The top seed from England took just 15 minutes to earn her place in the last four, despatching Austrian Birgit Coufal 11-3, 11-5, 11-7.


An even swifter victory ensured English interest in the other women's semi-final when Fiona Moverley beat Sweden's Josefa Bertilsson 11-2, 11-3, 11-2 in ten minutes.


Moverley, the third seed from Hull, will line up against second-seeded New Zealander Kylie Lindsay, an 11-8, 11-7, 14-12 winner over France's Coline Aumard.
