Back To Back Titles For Perry


Sarah Jane Perry* completed a WSA World Tour title double after winning the
*Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas* in Toluca Mexico, her second win in two
weeks.

The 22-year-old Englishwoman beat three higher seeds on her way to the
title, having recorded a similar victory in last week’s Pyramid
International in New York.

Perry made short work of local first round opponent *Ivonne Diaz*, before
fighting back from two games down to defeat No.3 seed *Samantha Cornett* of
Canada.  She then stormed through the semi-final stage, taking the first
game from No.2 seed and fellow Englishwoman *Lauren Briggs* without
dropping a point, before closing out a confident four-game win.

She then faced *Line Hansen*, elevated to top seed following the withdrawal
of* Samantha Teran* through injury before the event began.  The Danish
favourite defeated *Celia Allamargot* in the first round, followed by
confident wins over *Thaisa Serafini* and *Nicolette Fernandes* to meet
expectations in reaching the final.

It was Perry again who started quickest, taking the opening game by a
considerable margin.  A similar score-line followed in the second game, as
the Dane struggled to assert herself against the young Englishwoman.  A
change in tactic allowed the top seed the opportunity to get back into the
game, and she duly won the third game but Perry returned refocused for a
much closer fourth game.  She claimed the title on the tie-break as Hansen,
ranked 10 places above Perry, was unable to quell the younger players’
energy.

The Englishwoman rose 10 places in last week’s November rankings release,
and looks set to continue her elevation after claiming the third and
biggest title of her career to date.
