Beddoes Wins First WSA CourtCare Open Title

Emma Beddoes claimed the inaugural Courtcare Open title yesterday in
Chorley, England.

The WSA Tour10 boasted a strong British contingent of players, reflected in
the top five seeds.  Qualifier *Salma Hany Ibrahim Ahmed* delivered a
number of surprises in the event, first dispatching sixth seed *Gaby Huber* in
the opening round, before then dismissing top seed *Sarah Kippax* after
fighting back from two games down.

After comfortable early-round wins, a narrow semi-final round saw Emma
Beddoes take on No.2 seed *Sarah-Jane Perry* in a nail-bitingly close
match.  Beddoes’ experience gave her the advantage throughout the early
exchanges, and the 27-year-old established a solid two-game lead against
the higher seed.  As she is known for doing, a resilient Perry fought back
in the third game, and was able to launch successful comeback to level the
score at two games each.  The fifth and final game was decided by the
narrowest of tie-break margins, where an error from the No.2 seed gave
Beddoes the opportunity of match ball.  The world No.34 made no mistake,
moving past Perry and into her first final since her Meadowood Pharmacy
Open 2012 victory.

In the top half of the draw, *Victoria Lust* was also embroiled in a
marathon clash against qualifier Salma Hany.  Having already dispatched top
seed Kippax, the 16-year-old was high in confidence and took a frantic
first game against Lust.  Hany’s positivity continued to show, but a number
of errors in the second game allowed Lust to establish herself in the
contest and she duly took advantage, swinging the momentum in her favour.
The 23-year-old extended a lead to 2-1, but Hany was still causing
problems, seizing a lull in pressure from her opponent and forcing a
deciding fifth game.  The younger player began to fall off the pace in the
fifth, while Lust continued to rack up the points before claiming an
impressive third consecutive WSA final appearance.

Beddoes was able to continue her unbeaten run against Lust, playing precise
strategy to cause her opponent problems in the first game.  A strong lead
established in the first game gave her more confidence, and her momentum
extended into the second game too, where she was able to counter Lust’s
attempts at gaining a foothold in the contest.  The higher seed closed out
a narrower second game, but Lust took confidence from the improvement in
her game, and her third game efforts matched the 27-year-old, benefitting
from a more tactical approach.  She deservedly won a close third game,
before Beddoes upped the pace once again, regrouping well and controlling
the final rallies to close out the win and her eighth WSA World Tour title.

Beddoes thanked the crowd and sponsors after the match, adding: “It’s been
an amazing event and I’d like to thank Laura [Massaro] and Chris for
putting on a great event. It makes a real difference having a player run an
event as she knows what we want and we have had everything we needed all
week from them. I hope to be back next year!"

CourtCare have pledged a five-year deal to sponsor the WSA World Tour
event.  *

Final:
*[3] Emma Beddoes (ENG) bt [7] Victoria Lust (ENG)11-4, 11-8, 9-11, 11-6
