Aditya Jagtap & Tesni Evans Win Welsh Junior Open Titles
There was home success in the women's U19 event,
and a successful defence in the men's, in the Welsh Junior Open Squash
Championships, one of the leading events on the European Squash
Federation Junior Circuit, in Cardiff.
Welsh teenager Tesni Evans delighted home
supporters by lifting the women's trophy. But the 17-year-old top seed had a
tough battle against Andrea Malinova in the final, where she had to fight
back from two games down to beat the second-seeded Slovakian 8-11, 6-11, 11-2,
The win marks the second Welsh success in the
women's championship in three years.
Top-seeded Indian Aditya Jagtap returned
to Cardiff to defend the men's title he won for the first time last year – and
duly reached the final as expected, but only after recovering from deficits in
both the quarter-finals and semis.
The 17-year-old, a pupil at Millfield School in
England, faced 16-year-old Egyptian Marwan El Shorbagy, a 3/4 seed who
upset England's second seed Tom Dwyer in the semi-finals.
Jagtap, the Indian Junior National champion, was
in sparkling form in the final, despatching El Shorbagy 11-6, 11-6, 11-5 to
retain the title in style.
