Beddoes Beats Favourite Chuah For Colombo Title

RESULTS:         Women's Colombo Squash Open, Lisbon, Portugal

 

Final:

[2] Emma Beddoes (ENG) bt [1] Tricia Chuah (MAS) 9-7, 9-5, 9-5 (43m)

 


 

The 22-year-old second seed from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire - who was struck down by a kidney infection only weeks before the event - dropped only one game en-route to her second Tour final in two months.

 

Displaying the same composure and rhythm that had characterised her semi-final win over experienced Dutch opponent Karen Kronemeyer, Beddoes despatched the Malaysian favourite - ranked 38 places higher in the world - 9-7, 9-5, 9-5 in 43 minutes.

 

"I’m speechless," said former British National Junior champion Beddoes afterwards.  "I didn’t come to Lisbon with any expectations after my illness.

 

"The game last night was hard and I did wake up a little tired but I thought that this was the last match left so I should try and push through it……….Now my legs feel like lead!"
