  • World Open Squash 2011 Wrap Up

     
    Duncalf, David, Teran,  Grinham
    The 2011 World Squash Open ended at the Luxor Theatre in Rotterdam, the Netherland’s City of Sports yesterday with Malaysia’s Nicol David and England’s Nick Matthew taking top honors on the awards podium—but before they got there, they had to put up quite a fight against a few of Harrow’s own.
    It all began during round one where Raneem El Weleily (EGY) and Kasey Brown (AUS) both swiftly won their respective matches to meet each other in round two. But despite El Weleily’s well-known ability to play the angles of the court to her advantage, it was Brown who remained victorious 4/11, 11/7, 11/3, 6/11, 11/8.

    But, unfortunately for Brown, the quarter-finals was where her journey ended, which was a few steps further than that of Omneya Abdel Kawyu (EGY) who fell in round one to Egypt’s Kanzy El Dafrawy. But David admits going against Brown was not easy.
    “The score doesn’t reflect how hard it was out there,” said David on the World Open Squash official website. “It was maybe 3-0, but it felt more like 5 or 6 games actually. Kasey had a very hard game yesterday, but still, she is such a strong player. She has stepped up her game so much, if you lower your guard ever so slightly, she gets on it.”

    Meanwhile, Samantha Terán (MEX) was busy moving through the ranks past Tesni Evans (WAL)—11/5, 11/3, 11/7; Rachael Grinham (AUS) –4/11, 11/2, 11/3, 12/10; and Dipika Pallikal (IND)—11/6, 11/8/ 11/9 to meet Jenny Duncalf (ENG) in the semi-finals. Duncalf managed to score 11/9, 11/4, 11/7, which put her in front of David who ended up taking home her sixth World Open Squash Title.

    As for the men, Chris Ryder (ENG) might have lost to Olli Touminen (FIN) in round one—8/11, 11/4, 11/4, 11/4—but he didn’t lose his sense of humor.
    “Off for my ‘loser burger’. Maybe a shandy too. Every cloud [has a silver lining]…” he posted on his Twitter page shortly after the match.
    Overall, Harrow’s-sponsored players put on a good show and will continue to do so as both the WISPA and PSA world tours move forward

     

  • Raneem El Weleily Wins Carol Weymuller Open

    Harrow Sports would like to congratulate Raneem El Weleily (EGY) on her substantial win at the Gold 45 Carol Weymuller Open in Brooklyn, New York. Not only did Weleily, who is one of Harrow’s sponsored squash players, finally overtake England’s Jennifer Duncalf to win the overall event— including the biggest prize of her career, but she also scored the highest ranking of her professional career, shooting from number 12 to seven [3] on the Women’s International Squash Player’s (WISPA) official world rankings.
    Duncalf, who is Great Britain’s top female squash player and last year’s Carol Weymuller Open champion, was favored to win once again—that is, until Weleily arrived ready to take the lead.
    Harrow racquet in hand, she went full-strength and managed to win all three games against the world number 2, at 11/7, 15/13 and 11/4.
    Weleily is currently competing in the 2011 U.S. World Open from Oct. 2-3 in Philadelphia.
