Perry and Lengthorn in Wolverhampton Championships

Wolverhampton Open Squash Championships, Wolverhampton, England


 

Women's semi-finals:

[1] Madeline Perry (IRL) bt [3] Dominique Lloyd-Walter (ENG) 9-4, 9-3, 9-7 (55m)

[2] Laura Lengthorn-Massaro (ENG) bt Orla Noom (NED) 9-1, 10-8, 9-0 (54m)


Despite winning in straight games, both top seeds in the women's event were made to battle in their semi-finals. Perry, the Irish number one and eight-times national champion, needed 55 minutes to achieve her 9-3, 9-4, 9-7 victory over England's third seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter.

“Dominique played really well tonight,” said the No1 seed. “The third game was particularly tough. I had to work really hard and I’m just so pleased to have made it to the final.”


Second seed Laura Lengthorn-Massaro had an equally competitive match, taking just one minute less to overcome unseeded Orla Noom, the world No45 from the Netherlands, 9-1, 10-8, 9-0.


“I’m really pleased to be in tomorrow’s final and to have the opportunity of defending my title,” said the 23-year-old from Preston. “Tomorrow will be a hard match and I’m really looking forward to playing Madeline who is obviously playing really well.”
