Evans Scores Comeback Win Over King at U.S. Open to Reach Last Eight




World No.12 Tesni Evans overturned a two-game deficit against New Zealand’s Joelle King at Philadelphia’s Drexel University earlier today to book her place in the quarter-finals of the prestigious FS Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships.

Evans had beaten Commonwealth Games gold medalist King in their last meeting during May’s Allam British Open, but she found herself down in the opening two games after a bright start from King, with Evans struggling to contain the World No.5.

However, a virtuoso fightback from Evans saw her play some spell-binding squash as she took control and she came back to record a 7-11, 12-14, 11-9, 11-7, 11-5 victory which will see her take on World No.8 Sarah-Jane Perry for a place in what would be a first ever PSA World Tour Platinum semi-final for the 25-year-old from Rhyl.

"I was getting completely outplayed for the first two games, she had me everywhere and was all over me, so something had to change," Evans said afterwards.

“I tried to change my game a little bit and luckily it paid off in the end.

“I’m not going to lie, if you look at the head-to-head [against Perry] then I’m not looking very good. I’ve never beaten her before but it’s another opportunity to have another go. I’m really looking forward to the quarter-finals and I will give it everything in that match.”

Perry earned her quarter-final place courtesy of a comfortable 3-0 victory over India’s Joshna Chinappa, while there were also wins for England’s Laura Massaro and last year’s runner-up Raneem El Welily, with the duo seeing off Malaysia’s Nicol David and United States No.1 Olivia Blatchford, respectively,

World No.7 Massaro and eight-time World Champion David have contested an enthralling rivalry over the past 13 years and were meeting for the 34th time on the PSA Tour, with David leading the head-to-head record 23-10 coming into the match.

It was their third meeting of the season - with both players taking a win apiece before today - but Massaro prevailed by a 12-10, 11-8, 7-11, 8-11, 11-7 margin despite squandering a two-game advantage.


The quarter-finals of the U.S. Open begin at 18:00 local time (GMT-4) on Wednesday October 10 and the action will be shown live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World), Eurosport Player (Europe only) and DAZN (Japan).
