Top seed Liu Tsz-Ling denied the hosts a home winner of the Women's Malaysian Tour Squash Circuit No.4 when she beat Penang teenager Vanessa Raj in the final of the Women's Squash Association World Tour 5 event at the Perlis Sports Complex in Kangar, the state capital of Perlis.

Liu, the 22-year-old world No45 from Hong Kong, reached the final - her eighth on the WSA Tour - after surviving a five-game semi-final battle with Lotte Eriksen, the No4 seed from Norway.

Eighth seed Raj made her breakthrough in the quarter-finals where she upset third-seeded compatriot Rachel Arnold. The 18-year-old Asian Youth Games champion then set up her maiden appearance in a WSA Tour final after overcoming Hong Kong's No2 seed Tong Tsz-Wing in another marathon which went the full distance.


But Liu justified her seeding in powerful style in the final, beating world No77 Raj 11-9, 11-8, 11-5 to secure the fifth WSA World Tour title of her career.
