Kawy wins The Hurghada International

RESULTS: Hurghada Squash International, Hurghada, Egypt

Women's final:

[3] Omneya Abdel Kawy (EGY) bt [2] Jenny Duncalf (ENG) 9-1, 9-4, 9-2 (34m)




Second seed Ramy Ashour and third seed Omneya Abdel Kawy, both from Cairo, produced a popular home double in the Hurghada Squash International in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Hurghada after upsets over higher-ranked opponents in contrasting finals.


 

In the final of the women's $26,200 WISPA World Tour event, Kawy took on Jenny Duncalf, the No2 seed from England who had dropped only one game en-route to the climax.

Kawy the 22-year-old from Cairo who beat Australia's defending champion Rachael Grinham in the semi-finals to reach the final for the fifth year in a row, was in commanding form - racing to an 8-0 lead in the first game before winning it 9-1.

Duncalf led 4-1 in the second - but Kawy reclaimed the advantage to romp to a 9-1, 9-4, 9-2 victory in just 34 minutes.

"It was so nice to hear people chanting my name," said Kawy after her second title triumph at Hurghada.
