King Claims Title In Macau


Joelle King clinches her sixth WSA World Tour title after beating Omneya Abdel Kawy in the Macau Open 2012 final. 

The New Zealand international surprised audiences in Philadelphia last week by nearly scalping Nicol David in the Delaware Investments U.S Open semi-finals, but was seeded first for the competition in Taipa, Macau. 

The 24-year-old made a strong case to justify her top seeding and was yet to drop a game heading into the final.  She dispatched Siti Munirah JusohDelia Arnold and unexpected semi-finalist, qualifierJoshna Chinappa on the way to her 13th WSA tour final. 

King’s final opponent, former world No.4 Omneya Abdel Kawy of Egypt, had a tougher route as she dispatched second seed Dipika Pallikal in five games after beating qualifier Tong Tsz-Wing in round one.  She cemented her Macau Open final slot after beating No.7 seed Aisling Blake in straight games. 


Third, fourth, fifth seeds all faced exits in the early stages of the event, as Samantha TeranDonna Urquhart and Joey Chan all succumbed to shock first round defeats. 

King dominated the early exchanges of the final, looking comfortable after her forays in last week’s World Series event, and quickly established a two game lead.  The experienced Egyptian fought back however, much like her opponent’s U.S. Open tie against David last week, and levelled the contest in the fourth to force the deciding game. 

King, world No.12, was able to regain her composure for the final game, rebuffing the Kawy’s comeback attempt and closing out the win.  She will now head to Shanghai, China where she is seeded 7th in the Lujiazui Finance City China Open
later this week. 


 King On Course In Macau


A host of upsets have surprised audiences in Macau as just three seeds make it through to the WSA World Tour 2012 Macau Open semi-finals.

Top seed Joelle King remains the favourite to reach the final of the WSA Silver event, after wins against Siti Munriah Jusoh and Delia Arnold make her the only remaining top four seed.  Third and fourth seeds Samantha Teran and Donna Urquhart crashed out in round one of the event, to Joshna Chinappa and Siyoli Waters respectively.  Misaki Kobayashi also upset the seedings as she beat No.5 seed Joey Chan in straight games to progress to the quarter-finals.

Of these first round upsets, only 26-year-old Indian Joshna Cinappa remains in the event, as the qualifier battled to a five-game victory over Kobayashi and sets up a semi-final fixture against King.

Irishwoman Aisling Blake took three games to dispatch Siyoli Waters of South Africa to book her semi-final place.  She will now face Egyptian Omneya Abdel Kawy, after the former world No.4 surprised onlookers by defeating No.2 seed Dipika Palikal in a tight five-game contest.
