Perry’s Experience Shines On In Texas

Madeline Perry has become the latest WSA World Tour player to win back-to-back titles in 2013 following a successful Texas Open campaign. 

Just one seeded player failed to make it past the opening round of the well attended WSA Silver 35 event, as Misaki Kobayashi beat Samantha Teran to the quarter-final spot after a lengthy five games. 

The Japanese qualifier didn’t fare as well against second seed Jenny Duncalf in the quarters, with the Englishwoman demonstrating her experience and quality to reach the semi-final round.  Duncalf was joined by the rest of the top four seeds in the semis, as Natalie Grinham saw off a commendable challenge from Sarah-Jane Perry in five-games, along with victories for top seed Joelle King and fourth seeded Madeline Perry. 

Grinham’s long quarter-final match did nothing to impact her longevity against Duncalf in a cat-and-mouse semi-final battle.  The Dutch representative came from a game down against the higher seed and was pegged back again in the fourth before clinching the deciding fifth game to reach her 44th WSA career final. 

Meanwhile No.1 seed Joelle King saw a good start against Perry quickly levelled by the experienced Irishwoman, who launched an excellent display of cool-headed, strategic squash to beat the New Zealander, ranked five places higher, in four games. 

It was world No.10 Grinham who started better in the final by clinching the narrowest of opening games against Perry, ranked just one place behind her. 

The high level of experience from both players was evident to the crowds as Perry countered in the second, drawing level after another closely fought game.  Grinham responded in kind to take the lead again, but was beginning to show signs of fatigue in the fourth game, which Perry closed out by the largest margin of the match so far.  A third five-game encounter proved too much for the Dutchwoman, and Perry closed out the fifth and final game to win her eleventh WSA World Tour title, her second in succession.
