Raneem El Weliely (EGY) continued to prove herself as runner-up to Nicol David (MAS)at the Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open, where Kasey Brown managed to reach round two in the tournament, and number five on WISPA’s world rankings.

England’s Tania Bailey won her sixth WISPA title and first tournament since 2009 at the Coronation London Open last week after breezing through Farah Abdel Mequid (EGY), Tesni Evans (WAL), Sarah-Jane Perry (ENG), and Cigany Sillevis (NED).
