Lindsay Lifts Moscow Open Trophy

Final:

[6] Kylie Lindsay (NZL) bt [4] Fiona Moverley (ENG) 9-11, 11-7, 15-17, 14-12, 11-4 (55m)

 


 

New Zealander Kylie Lindsay claimed her place in Squash history in Moscow when she beat English opponent Fiona Moverley in the final of the Women's Tekamed Moscow Open to win the first WISPA World Tour squash title to be contested in Russia.


 

It was a sensational climax for the 24-year-old Matamata who despatched second-seeded Canadian Carolyn Russell in the quarter-finals, then fought from a game down to topple third seed Deon Saffery, from Wales, in the semis.


 

Moverley, the fourth seed, reached the final of the WISPA Premier Series event at Multisport Moscow after fighting back from 2/1 down to beat Egypt's Heba El Torky.


 

Moverley, from Hull in East Yorkshire, twice led in the final - and had match ball in the fourth game, the second to go to a tie-break. 


 

But a tinned volley by the fourth seed proved to be the turning point in the match as Lindsay went on to take the game, and then the decider to record a dramatic 9-11, 11-7, 15-17, 14-12, 11-4 title victory after 55 minutes.


 

The win gives Kiwi Lindsay her first WISPA Tour title.
