Milou Marks Perth Success


City of Perth WA Open

Women's Draw

23-25 May, Perth, Australia, $5k
 

Milou Marks Perth Success

Dutch champion Milou van der Heijden picked up the second WSA World Tour squash title of her career when she beat home hope Sarah Cardwell in the final of the Women's City of Perth WA Open in Western Australia.

It was after a four-game semi-final win over fourth-seeded Korean Kim Ga-Hye in the WSA Tour 5 event at the Terrace Squash Centre in Perth that No2 seed van der Heijden reached her eighth Tour final - to face surprise opponent Cardwell, the third seed.

Cardwell had produced a significant upset in the other semi - beating New Zealand's top seed Megan Craig for the first time in seven Tour meetings to make her sixth final.

'Cardwell went through to the final following a bizarre incident when playing New Zealand's top seed Megan Craig who was leading 7-4 in the third with the games at 1/1. A ball thrown to Cardwell for service hit the Australian in the eye and the referee awarded the match to her as she was unable to continue.

But 23-year-old world No54 van der Heijden cruised to victory in the final, beating 22-year-old Cardwell - ranked just four places lower - 11-9, 11-4, 11-5 in 28 minutes.

Interpretation of Semi Final Ruling

Evidently the full score should be put down as the organisers have done? Interestingly if it was a contributed injury (e.g. Cardwell failing to catch the ball), then the rules says  - (the score at the conclusion of the rally in which the injury occurred, stands.' (14.3.2)
