LIBERTY BELL OPEN 2012
 

Qualifier Success At Liberty Bell Open

Qualifier Success At Liberty Bell Open

 

Pakistani qualifier Maria Toor Pakay stormed past four seeded players on her way to winning her first ever WSA title in the Women's Liberty Bell Open in Berwyn, Philadelphia. 

 

Having made it through two qualifying rounds, the 21-year-old then beat No6 seed Celia Allamargot, tournament favourite Misaki Kobayashi and No3 seed Olivia Blatchford.  She then capped off a remarkable run of form by beating the No2 seed Miranda Ranieri in the final, 11/3, 11/8, 11/7. 

 

This giant-killing spree is made all the more impressive by the fact that Pakay did not drop a single game throughout the competition, and now holds the claim of being the first ever qualifier to win the Liberty Bell Open’s main draw. 

 

Pakay’s first tour win comes in her third WSA World Tour final.
