Duncalf Blitzes Brown To Become WISPA Master

England's Jenny Duncalf justified her top seeding in the Women's Punj Lloyd WISPA Masters in India by beating second-seeded Australian Kasey Brown in today's final of the inaugural $36,500 WISPA World Tour squash championship at the Sirifort CWG Block in New Delhi.

Both players had survived hard-fought five-game semi-finals - Duncalf coming through against rising French star Camille Serme and the New South Wales-born Australian stemming a fightback by up-and-coming Hong Kong player Annie Au.

But world No2 Duncalf was in sparkling form in the final against an opponent who beat her in October's World Open in Egypt, romping through to beat Brown 11-5, 11-5, 11-4.

"I'm extremely happy to have finished 2010 on such a high note by winning the Punj Lloyd Wispa Masters," Duncalf told Indian media after netting the ninth Tour title of her career.

"It's been a great tournament and one that I hope to be returning to in 2011. It's been a tough year so I, and no doubt Kasey, will be looking forward to a relaxing festive period before knuckling down for more challenges ahead in 2011," added the 28-year-old from Harrogate.

Duncalf & Brown Make Masters Final

England's Jenny Duncalf and Australian Kasey Brown will contest the final of the Women's Punj Lloyd WISPA Masters in India - but the two top seeds were both taken the full distance in their semi-finals in the inaugural $36,500 WISPA World Tour squash championship at the Sirifort CWG Block in New Delhi.

Event favourite Duncalf faced third seed Camille Serme for the first time since the rising French star claimed her first win over the world No2 from Harrogate in the quarter-finals of the World Open in September.

Twice Duncalf led, and twice Serme reduced the deficit to force the match into a fifth game decider. But the 28-year-old from Harrogate ultimately prevailed, winning 11-9, 8-11, 11-3, 9-11, 11-5 in 49 minutes.

"I'm happy to have come through to reach the final tomorrow," said Duncalf, now in the sixth Tour final of the year, and the 18th of her career. "I felt a bit flat today, which you can't afford to be against a player of Camille's standard.

"Still, I'm pleased to be in the final - and looking forward to my last match of a long year, come on!!"

Second seed Brown lined up against fifth seed Annie Au, the world No14 from Hong Kong to whom she had lost in both their previous Tour clashes.

And the world No7 from New South Wales showed her determination to reverse that record by winning the opening two games.

But wily left-hander Au struck back to take the next two to level the match.

Brown regained control in the fifth, however, and closed out the match 11-6, 11-9, 4-11, 2-11, 11-8 after 64 minutes to earn her second place in a WISPA final this year.

"I felt like I came out quite strong and played well in the first two games, but Annie had a really good game plan in the second and the fourth - and in the fifth I decided that I wanted to keep the ball really warm and keep up the momentum and fortunately I got through today," explained Brown, now in the 19th Tour final of her career.

"It's going to very tough. Jenny is very talented and a very good player and I am going to need to play my best tomorrow to beat her."

Au Ousts Hawkes In Masters Upset

Hong Kong's Annie Au claimed an unexpected place in the semi-finals of the Women's Punj Lloyd WISPA Masters after upsetting New Zealand's fourth seed Jaclyn Hawkes in the inaugural $36,500 WISPA World Tour squash championship at the Sirifort CWG Block in New Delhi.

Reproducing the form which saw her win the Seoul Open last week in South Korea, fifth seed Au recovered from a game down to beat Hawkes, the world No12, 9-11, 11-7, 15-13, 11-9 in 59 minutes.

The 21-year-old Asian Games silver medallist will now face second seed Kasey Brown, the world No7 from Australia to whom she has never lost.

Brown brought to an end Indian interest in the event by beating eighth seed Dipika Pallikal. But the 19-year-old from Chennai, ranked 29 in the world, delivered a sensational performance to fight back from two games down to force the match into a fifth game decider.

But Brown, winner of three Commonwealth Games medals on the same court in October, battled back to clinch the match 11-5, 11-5, 7-11, 7-11, 11-5 after 61 minutes.

"Brown won, but whether the Indian crowd or press recognise it, Pallikal's performance was remarkable," said noted English coach Malcolm Willstrop "She is a star of the future."

An all-European clash will take place in the other semi-final when England's top seed Jenny Duncalf lines up against the top-ranked French player Camille Serme.

Duncalf, the world No2 from Harrogate, beat Hong Kong's No7 seed Joey Chan 4-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-2 while third seed Serme, the world No10, despatched Malaysia's sixth seed Low Wee Wern 11-7, 11-8, 11-3.

Dipika Delivers In Delhi

Indian teenager Dipika Pallikal single-handedly carried local interest through to the quarter-finals of the Women's Punj Lloyd WISPA Masters after prevailing in the first round of the inaugural $36,500 WISPA World Tour squash championship at the Sirifort CWG Block in New Delhi.

The 19-year-old eighth seed from Chennai defeated Scottish qualifier Lisa Aitken 11-6, 11-9, 11-3 to set up a quarter-final clash with Kasey Brown, the No2 seed from Australia.

Brown needed 50 minutes to overcome unseeded Malaysian Siti Munirah Jusoh 11-6, 12-10, 11-8.

The world No7 from New South Wales is expected to meet English rival Jenny Duncalf in Sunday's final. Top seed Duncalf, ranked two in the world, took four games to overcome Germany's Gaby Schmohl 11-5, 11-4, 7-11, 11-3.
