Beddoes Harvests Flowerbulb Crown In Holland


England's Emma Beddoes picked up the third WISPA World Tour squash title of her career when she beat local star Annelize Naude in the final of the $4,000 Women's Flowerbulb Open at Squash Hillegom in the Dutch town of Hillegom.

 

Both finalists came through tough semi-final matches earlier in the day and started the final a little tentatively.  Midway through the first game, 24-year-old Beddoes stepped up the pace - something her more experienced opponent was surprisingly unable to cope with.

 

The top seed from Nottingham kept up the pressure throughout the second and third games, forcing many uncharacteristic errors out of the 32-year-old Dutch ace who never threatened to extend the match.

 

Within 25 minutes, the match was over and a new Flowerbulb champion was crowned: Beddoes celebrated her 11-8, 11-2, 11-6 triumph by becoming the first non-Dutch player to win the title in the four-year history of the event - following pervious wins by Annelize Naude in 2006; Karen Kronemeyer in 2007; and Orla Noom in 2008.
