ATWATER CUP 2012
 

Waters joins top seeds in Atwater semiís

Waters joins top seeds in Atwater semiís
 
Alison Waters continues her promising return from injury as she joins the top three seeds in the semi finals of the Atwater Cup in Montreal.

The former world No3 beat her English compatriot and no4 seed Emma Beddoes in the first round of the event, as well as dispatching Aisling Blake of Ireland in the quarters. 

So far Waters has provided the only upsets in the competition.  Tournament favourite Kasey Brownwasted no time moving past unseeded Czech, Lucie Fialova in round one and later No5 seed Line Hansen, both 3-0. 

Sarah Kippax beat Pakistani qualifier Maria Toor Pakay in three games, but was forced to five in the next round by No6 seed Latasha Khan.  Kippax struggled at times to halt the momentum of her opponent but eventually got the better of the American, coming from 2-1 down to win 3-2. 

Hong Kong international Joey Chan fought a deceptively close 3-0 win against qualifier Miranda Ranieri in the first round in which she was forced to a tie-break second game by the Canadian.  The no2 seed then went on to play the experienced Swiss, Gaby Huber in a match which could have gone either way at one-all, but for some errors from Huber.  Chan seized the opportunity and scraped back two game-balls in the third, before claiming the next two games to win 3-1.
