Third time lucky for Londoner Alison Waters who upset her higher-seeded England team-mate Laura Lengthorn-Massaro to win the women's crown at the National Squash Centre


In the women's final, Lengthorn-Massaro took control of the first game, but Waters came back to take the next two. At 4-8 down in the fourth, Waters mounted a final charge to record her impressive 6-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-9 win in 49 minutes.

"I really wanted it this year after missing out twice before," said the 23-year-old world No11 who became the first unseeded player to reach the final in 2005, and last year lost out after squandered a two-game lead. "It's been my focus since the beginning of the year.

"It's a nice title to have - my first senior title - and at least I get to hold onto it for a year!

"It'll give me a lot of extra confidence on the WISPA World Tour - where my ambition is to get into the world's top eight.

"My next event is the Malaysian Open - where I meet Vicky Botwright in the first round," concluded the new champion.
