Perry Pushes Forward With Second Title Of 2013

The impressive form of Sarah-Jane Perry continues as the Englishwoman
claimed the WSA Tour 10 Mayfair Open in Toronto, Canada at the weekend.

The No.3 seed from Birmingham, England recorded straight games wins over Megan
Craig* and *Lauren Selby* in the opening rounds of the inaugural Canadian
event, before lining up against second seed *Sarah Kippax* in the
semi-finals.  Ranked just six places below Kippax, Perry overturned an
early deficit to complete an unfancied win against her national compatriot
in four games.

Elsewhere, fourth seeded Egyptian *Heba El Torky* overcame a tricky first
round tie against wildcard *Hollie Naughton* in five games, before coming
back from 2-1 down against No.7 seed *Misaki Kobayashi* to edge into the
semi-final round with a fifth game win.

There, the 22-year-old faced top seed *Samantha Teran* of Mexico in another
back-and-forth five game contest.  The Egyptian eventually got the better
of the tournament favourite, to book the sixth WSA final appearance of her

Perry took an early lead in the Mayfair Open final, as her opponent took
her time to get into the match following some lengthy earlier matches.  El
Torky found her footing in the next game and managed to disrupt the
Englishwoman’s rhythm to claim a narrow second game win.  She was unable to
sustain her advantage however as Perry, having played five fewer games
throughout the tournament, upped the pressure and played out the victory in
four games.

Perry, ranked at No.26 in the world, has risen 39 places in the WSA World
Rankings since this time last year, and in that time has added five WSA
titles to her haul, making six overall.

This week, along with the other top eight seeds of the event, Perry will
feature in the *WSA Tour 15 Granite Open*, also in Toronto.
