Kippax Dominates Hampton Squash Week

Sarah Kippax claimed her first title in three years after winning the Tour 10 Hampton Squash Week event in Southampton, New York at the weekend.

Seeded first for the event, the Cheshire-born Englishwoman was yet to drop a game heading into the final after making short work of early round opponents Salma HanyLucie Fialova and fourth seed semi-finalist Samantha Cornett

Her opponent in the final, experienced second seed and home-hope Latasha Khan faced slightly more opposition as she progressed through the competition.  The 39-year-old from Seattle breezed past qualifier Celia Allamargot in the first round, but dropped a tie-break first game against Farah Abdel Meguid of Egypt in the quarters.  A slow start cost Khan the first game in her semi-final contest too, but she recovered to beat Misaki Kobayashi in four games to ensure her spot in the final. 

The American fought back excellently after losing the first game of the final, and stormed through an 11-2 second game to level the score.  Kippax was always the more dangerous of the pair however and closed the match out in four games.  The world No.25 claims the eighth WSA World Tour title of her career and will feature as second seed for this week's WSA Tour 15 Squash On Fire 2012 event in Washington D.C.
