El Tayeb Topples Title-Holder Serme In Creteil Crash


Local star and top seed Camille Serme failed to retain her Women's Creteil International Open title after losing out to unseeded Egyptian teenager Nour El Tayeb in the final of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in Creteil, France.


It was a sensational performance by El Tayeb, who becomes only the third sixteen-year-old in the history of the WISPA World Tour to win a Tour title – following in the footsteps of Malaysia's reigning world number one Nicol David and US teenager Amanda Sobhy.


El Tayeb, who celebrates her 17th birthday in just over a week, reached the final after upsetting eighth seed Annelize Naude and fourth seed Emma Beddoes.  In the semi-finals, the Cairo star outplayed compatriot Heba El Torky, a qualifier.


Serme, ranked 11 in the world and playing on her home club courts, battled back after losing the first two games to draw level.


But the Egyptian novice refused to be outdone and dug deep to reclaim the advantage in the decider to record her historic 11-8, 11-9, 8-11, 8-11, 11-8 title-winning victory.


The success gives El Tayeb her maiden title on the WISPA Tour – but, no doubt, the first of many more to come.


Serme Stops Sherbini In Creteil


Local star Camille Serme is one win away from defending her title in the Women's Creteil International Open after holding off the teenage challenge of Egypt's unseeded Nour El Sherbini in the semi-finals of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in Creteil, France.


Along with fellow teenaged compatriots Nour El Tayeb and Heba El Torky, 14-year-old El Sherbini secured an unexpected place in the last four where she faced top seed Serme, the world No11 who won the title for the first time in her home town last year.


But the 20-year-old favourite was too strong for El Sherbini, the world junior champion, winning 11-7, 11-7, 11-6 in 34 minutes.


The other all-Egyptian semi-final saw 16-year-old Nour El Tayeb prevail 11-4, 11-5, 12-10 against 19-year-old qualifier Heba El Torky.


El Tayeb, from Cairo, is celebrating her first appearance in a WISPA Tour final – while Serme is marking her ninth.


Egyptian Teens Take Over In Creteil


A trio of Egyptian teenagers created havoc with the seedings of the Women's Internationaux de Creteil after claiming unexpected places in the quarter-finals of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour squash event in its fourth year at Centre Marie Therese Eyquem in Creteil, France.


Qualifier Heba El Torky secured the biggest scalp after dismissing fifth-seeded Indian Joshna Chinappa 11-6, 11-7, 11-7. 


The 19-year-old from Alexandria will now faces second seed Jaclyn Hawkes after the New Zealander beat England's Fiona Moverley 11-6, 11-3, 11-7.


Unseeded Nour El Sherbini, the 14-year-old from Alexandria who became the sport's youngest ever world champion last year, despatched Lauren Siddall, the 25-year-old No6 seed from England, 11-5, 11-5, 11-8.  The youngster now lines up against further English opposition as she takes on third seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter for a place in the semi-finals.


Experienced Dutch player Annelize Naude also felt the effect of the rising tide of Egyptian juniors.  The eighth seed from Amsterdam, winner of the Creteil title in 2008, went down 11-9, 11-7, 11-7 to unseeded Nour El Tayeb.


The 16-year-old from Cairo will now meet Emma Beddoes, the 24-year-old fourth seed who ousted Coline Aumard, one of two French qualifiers, 11-7, 11-7, 11-2.


Italian Manuela Manetta also recorded an upset after beating Orla Noom, the seventh seed from the Netherlands, 11-8, 8-11, 11-7, 11-9. 


The unseeded 26-year-old from Parma will now face local heroine Camille Serme in a repeat of last year's final.  Serme, who delighted her local fans by winning the title for the first time in 2009, beat Egyptian qualifier Kanzy Emad El-Defrawy 11-3, 11-7, 11-6.
