Serme in Texas Open Title Win

Serme In Texas Open Title Win

 

Top seed Camille Serme won her seventh WSA World Tour title after beating Joelle King in the Texas Open final at the weekend. 


After making short work of Maria Toor Pakay and local hope Latasha Khan in the early rounds, the young Frenchwoman beat third seed Samantha Teran of Mexico in the semis to assure her place in the £25K WSA event final. 

Her fellow finalist Joelle King of New Zealand, a former Texas Open champion, had similarly quick opening rounds against Deon Saffrey and Lucie Fialova, before claiming an impressive straight-games win over second seed Annie Au of Hong Kong in the semi final. 

Just two WSA world ranking places separate the 23-year-old finalists, but it was Serme who took the early initiative in the final.  King fought back to claim the second game, but was unable to keep momentum as the French national champion held her nerve to finish off the match in four games. 

Serme’s seventh WSA World Tour title is her first of the season and will help strengthen her position in the world’s top 10.
