Duncalf Delivers Double In Greenwich
Jenny Duncalf added a second title to her tally over the past two months when she beat England team-mate Alison Waters in the final of the Women's Harrow Greenwich Squash Open in the US state of Connecticut.

Duncalf, the 23-year-old third seed from Harrogate in Yorkshire, reached the climax of the WISPA World Tour event after upsetting title-holder Linda Elriani, also an England team-mate, in a five-game semi-final marathon.

After a close first game against Waters, the 21-year-old fifth seed, Duncalf took control of the match and went on to record a 10-8 9-5 9-3 victory.

The triumph marks Duncalf's third WISPA title, and follows directly on from her success in the Canary Islands Open in December.

Duncalf Downs Elriani In Greenwich Semi
Jenny Duncalf scored a notable upset in the Women's Harrow Greenwich Squash Open when she beat English compatriot Linda Elriani, the top seed and defending champion, in a five-game semi-final marathon to reach the final

Duncalf, the 23-year-old world No10 from Harrogate in Yorkshire, came from 1/2 down to topple Elriani 9-5 5-9 2-9 9-6 9-2 to achieve her first ever victory over the world No6 from Eastbourne in Sussex.

In her first WISPA World Tour event since winning the Canary Islands Open in December, Duncalf now faces another fellow countrywoman in her fourth WISPA final.

Alison Waters, the fifth seed who upset USA's second seed Natalie Grainger to reach the last four, took four games to beat England's Laura-Jane Lengthorn, the No7 seed, 4-9 9-0 9-2 9-5 in the other semi.

Waters, 21, from London, is celebrating her third appearance in a WISPA final.

New Venue Hosts All-English Semi-Finals In Greenwich
With the worst rain and wind storms for 100 years causing widespread power cuts in the US state of Connecticut, play in the Women's Harrow Greenwich Squash Open was transferred overnight to the brand new Greenwich Country Club, where four English players fought through to the semi-finals of the WISPA World Tour event.

Alison Waters
, the fifth seed who was voted WISPA's 'Most Improved Player of the Year' last month for the second successive year, pulled of the biggest upset when she downed USA's second seed Natalie Grainger.

The 21-year-old Londoner fought back from a game down to beat the world No7 from Washington 6-9 9-2 10-8 9-6, and will now meet Laura-Jane Lengthorn in the semi-finals.

Lengthorn, the seventh seed from Lancashire, was a game behind and 2-8 down in the second when opponent Tania Bailey, the fourth seed also from England, was forced to concede the match when suddenly taken ill.

The other semi-final will feature top seed Linda Elriani, from Sussex, and Yorkshire's Jenny Duncalf. Elriani, seeking her third successive Greenwich title, beat Scotland's Pamela Nimmo 9-6 9-2 9-5, while third seed Duncalf defeated US-based English player Fiona Geaves, the eighth seed, 9-5 9-4 9-2.


Stoehr Struggles As Pam Progresses In Power-Cut Connecticut


A hamstring injury sustained during practice for her first round match in the Women's Harrow Greenwich Squash Open caused sixth seed Isabelle Stoehr to crumble to unseeded Scot Pamela Nimmo in the WISPA World Tour event in Greenwich, USA.

After losing the first two games, the 26-year-old from France was forced to stop after three points of the third game and concede the match to her Scottish opponent.

Edinburgh-based Nimmo now goes on to meet fellow Briton Linda Elriani, the top seed from England who despatched qualifier Dominique Lloyd-Walter, also from England, 9-4 9-1 9-0. The British champion is seeking her third successive Greenwich Open title.

High winds in Connecticut brought down power lines to the Field Club where the championship was being staged. Players and official were hurriedly relocated to the Greenwich Country Club where the remainder of the event will now be played.
