After two years in Canadian hands, the 2014 Women's Montreal Open
title went overseas when top-seeded Egyptian Heba El Torky beat
New Zealander Amanda Landers-Murphy in the final of the WSA
World Tour 5 squash event at Club Sportif MAA in Montreal.
it took the 23-year-old from Alexandria just eight minutes to claim the
seventh WSA World Tour title of her career when Landers Murphy,
the second seed from Rotorua, withdrew injured after just one game.
Torky reached the final dropping only one game along the way while her
opponent had to battle twice from two games down to beat third-seeded
compatriot Megan Craig to make the final.
7-1, it becomes very noticeable that Landers-Murphy was struggling to
move and even limping slightly between the rallies," reported event
spokesman Radu Neascu.
Torky won the game 11-1 and Landers-Murphy took an injury time-out
before starting the second game.
"Upon closer investigation, and with a very heavy heart, she conceded
the match," added Neascu. "A rather anticlimactic ending to a highly
anticipated match, however we wish her a very speedy recovery and much
success on the WSA tour."
