Pierrepont Wins Macau Title


 


 

Women's Final:

[6] Suzie Pierrepont (ENG) bt [2] Samantha Teran (MEX) 11-6, 7-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4

 


 

England's Suzie Pierrepont  secured the title in the 2008 Macau Open Squash Championships the first European colony in China.

 


The final of the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event produced a stunning upset as England's sixth seed Suzie Pierrepont overcame her third higher-ranked opponent in three days.

 

The sixth seed from Sussex, who is now living in the USA, beat Hong Kong's top seed Rebecca Chiu in the semi-finals - then faced second seed Samantha Teran in the climax.

 

Belying the fact that almost 20 ranking positions separate the pair, 23-year-old Pierrepont battled for five games to beat her Mexican opponent, the world No18, 11-6, 7-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4.

 

The victory earns Pierrepont the fourth - and biggest - Tour title of her career.
