Kippax Claims Title At Leinster Open

Sarah Kippax clinched the title at the  Bymac Leinster Squash Open in Ireland at the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin.


The climax of the women's $8,000 WISPA World Tour event was a one-sided affair in which Sarah Kippax, the world number 32, beat France's Camille Serme 11-5, 11-6, 11-4 in just 24 minutes.


Second seed Kippax, who had knocked out Ireland's Aisling Blake in the semi-final, dominated the final from start to finish against the sixth seed.


Serme had put in some fine performances to reach the final, most notably knocking out number one seed Latasha Khan in the quarter-finals - but the final proved one match too far as she looked off the pace.


The triumph marks the fifth WISPA World Tour title triumph this year for Sarah Kippax!  The win is the perfect final preparation for the Chester-born 25-year-old on the eve of next week's Hi-Tec World Championship in Manchester - the first ever joint staging of the Men's and Women's World Opens in the UK, for which Kippax was recently appointed 'Official Ambassador'.
