Samantha Soars To Windy City Success

Top seed Samantha Teran despatched US opponent Latasha Khan in straight games in the final of the Women's Windy City Open to win the inaugural WISPA World Tour squash event at the University Club of Chicago in Chicago, USA.

The Mexican's 9-2, 9-7, 9-2 victory gives Teran her second Tour title in the USA this year, and the ninth of her career.

Beddoes Bursts Through In Chicago

England's Emma Beddoes claimed one of the best results of her career when she upset fourth seed Aisling Blake in the quarter-finals of the Women's Windy City Open to win an unexpected place in the last four of the WISPA World Tour squash event at the University Club of Chicago in Chicago, USA.

Fifth seed Beddoes, the 22-year-old world No54 from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, took just three games to defeat her Irish opponent - ranked more than 20 places higher - 9-6, 9-4, 9-4.

Top seed Samantha Teran now awaits Beddoes after the Mexican beat sixth-seeded Canadian Tara Mullins 9-2, 9-1, 9-3.

Latasha Khan led US interest into the semi-finals with a comfortable 9-2, 9-2, 9-7 win over No8 seed Kirsty McPhee.  The second seed from Seattle now takes on Louise Crome after the third seed from New Zealand defeated Dutch opponent Karen Kronemeyer 9-0, 10-8, 9-2.

Teran & Kahn On Course For Final Showdown In Windy City

Top seeds Samantha Teran and Latasha Khan are on course to meet in a WISPA World Tour squash event final for the second time this year after despatching their first round opponents in the Women's Windy City Open at the University Club of Chicago in Chicago, USA.

Teran, the favourite from Mexico, crushed Argentinean qualifier Fernanda Rocha 9-1, 9-0, 9-0 while Khan, the second seed from Seattle, defeated Tina Rix of England 9-6, 9-0, 9-0.

When the pair last met, in the Liberty Bell Open climax in Philadelphia in January, it took Teran exactly two hours to quash Khan to win her eighth Tour title
