Selby Celebrates Maiden Tour Title Success At Finnish Open

Selby Celebrates Maiden Tour Title Success At Finnish Open

English favourite Lauren Selby took top honours at the Savcor Women's Finnish Open when she beat fellow Briton Deon Saffery in the final of the established $6,800 WISPA World Tour squash event at the Sport Forum in Mikkeli.

It was a case of third time lucky for the 26-year-old from Essex - sister of England international Daryl Selby, the world No10 - who made it to her third Tour final, but pulled off her first title success.

Selby reached the final without dropping a game - and faced surprise opponent Deon Saffery, the fifth seed from Wales who progressed through to the climax without meeting a single seeded player!

Favourite Selby took the opening game but Saffery fought back to draw level after a second game tie-break.

Selby stuck to her task, however, and after 54 minutes celebrated her title-winning 11-8, 10-12, 11-7, 11-8 triumph.
