Historic British Open For Duncalf

Dunlop British Open Squash Championships, ECHO Arena, Liverpool, England

 

Women's semi-finals:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [4] Natalie Grainger (USA) 9-5, 9-1, 9-0 (27m)

[5] Jenny Duncalf (ENG) bt [Q] Isabelle Stoehr (FRA) 4-9, 9-3, 9-6, 9-6 (73m)



 

Jenny Duncalf, the world number eight who had never before lost to Stoehr, admitted that she was "a little bit edgy" in the early part of the match against her lower-ranked opponent - and dropped the first game.


The 25-year-old fifth seed from Harrogate fought back and finally converted her fourth match ball to record a 4-9, 9-3, 9-6, 9-6 triumph after 73 minutes.

"I'm ecstatic to be in the final - this has to be the best result of my life," added Duncalf.

Later Malaysia's top seed Nicol David put in a powerful performance to beat Natalie Grainger, the Manchester-born fourth seed from the USA.

 




"I got my momentum midway through the first game and started playing a much more attacking game," said the two times champion who suffered a shock defeat in the 2007 event.
