Jenny Duncalf, the No2 seed from Harrogate in Yorkshire pulled off a notable upset by beating higher-ranked England team-mate Tania Bailey to keep her women's crown.

The world No10 battled for four games to overcome her top-seeded opponent, ranked six places higher in the world, 9-5, 3-9, 9-7, 9-5 to add the European title to the British National trophy she won in February.

"I took a terrible start in the first, 5-0 down, but I seemed to have had the same start in my last three matches!" Duncalf explained.

"Tania and I were set on getting to the final, it was very important to us, so that was achieved. I'm very glad to keep my title, two years in a row now, but also very happy to beat Tania in the final."
