15-Mar, Final>
Naudé claims fourth
WISPA title in Eindhoven

Tommy Berden reports

Annelize Naudé claimed the fourth WISPA title of her career during the Forexx Eindhoven Open 2009. The 32-year old Dutch player, who earlier won tournaments in France (2008), Switzerland (2004) and Denmark (2002), put on an impressive display of high quality squash against youngster Victoria Lust and never let her English opponent settle in the match.

Naudé stormed through the first two games for the loss of only four points with faultless squash. The 19-year old Lust seemed to be more at ease in the third, but a victory for the 2-time Dutch Champion was never in doubt. With a 11-2, 11-2, 11-6 score line Naudé secured an important tournament win, which is sure to boast her position (36th) on the WISPA World Rankings after dropping outside the top-30 for the first time in eight years earlier this month.

The runner-up spot for her promising opponent, the fourth one in as many months, will also see Lust continue her impressive rise on the all important rankings.

Normal order restored in Eindhoven semis
Tommy Berden reports

Normal order was restored tonight during the semi finals of the Forexx Eindhoven Open 2009 when Annelize Naudé and Victoria Lust secured a place in the final of the new WISPA Tour 4 championship in the Netherlands.

32-year old Naudé was the first player to move through to the event’s climax. The tournament favourite shook off a spirited challenge of compatriot Orla Noom to qualify for her first final on the professional women’s circuit since February last year. After sharing the first two games, the third proved crucial in the tense match between the two Dutch players. Naudé used all her experience to secure the important lead and quickly raced away at the beginning of the fourth to clinch a 11-5, 9-11, 11-9, 11-4 victory over her team mate in the Dutch national team.

In tomorrow’s final the world number 36 will face another promising youngster who is enjoying a sensational run of form. The 19-year old Victoria Lust ended the fairytale comeback of Nicolette Fernandes in a close fought match (10-12, 11-5, 14-12, 11-8) to edge one step closer to her maiden WISPA title. Amazingly enough it will be Lust’s fourth WISPA final in as many months, an incredible run which saw her shoot up the rankings from 125 to 62. Tomorrow’s final promises to be a close affair between experience and talent. The pair met once in their career, which was last month during the Swedish Open 2009, with Lust coming out a surprising five game winner.

14-Mar, Quarters:

Fernandes & Lust in
Eindhoven upsets

Tommy Berden reports

Nicolette Fernandes and Victoria Lust registered stunning results to gatecrash the semi finals of the Forexx Eindhoven Open 2009.

In her first tournament since April 2007, the 25-year old Fernandes came back from 2-1 down to beat fourth seeded Celia Allamargot from France 11-9 in the fifth and final game. The former world number 27, who was forced out of the game for nearly 2 years with a serious knee injury, now faces another surprise semi finalist in the fast improving Victoria Lust. The 19-year old from England ousted Manuela Manetta in a 67-minute match, winning three tiebreaks to score a notable upset over the event’s number two seed: 6-11, 17-15, 12-10, 12-10.

In the top half of the draw a Dutch finalist is secured in the new WISPA Tour 4 event in the Netherlands after Annelize Naudé and Orla Noom both scored comprehensive victories over Leonie Holt from England and Irina Assal from Russia. Whilst the World Rankings don’t suggest much difference, the 32-year old Naudé enters the semi finals as firm favourite. The world number 36, hailing from Amsterdam, never lost to her nine year younger compatriot, ranked 40th in the world. The last time the pair met was one month ago in the Dutch Nationals with Naudé coming out on top.

13-Mar, Round One:
Fernandes makes successful comeback
Tommy Berden reports

Nicolette Fernandes made a successful comeback during the Forexx Eindhoven Open 2009 after a 23-month absence due to injury. The 25-year old from Guyana defeated Dutch junior Cigany Sillevis in qualifying, before ousting Swedish ace Anna-Carin Forstadius, seeded six, in the first round.

Fernandes, who last came into action during the Qatar Classic of April 2007 before suffering her long term knee injury, now faces fourth seeded Celia Allamargot in tomorrow’s quarter finals after the French girl downed the local favourite Milou van der Heijden.

Leonie Holt scored another notable upset in the first round of the new WISPA event in the Dutch city of Eindhoven when she claimed the scalp of Dutch international Dagmar Vermeulen, the seventh seed. Holt will now take on the event’s favourite Annelize Naudé who defeated Kerri Lancaster (formerly Shields) from Ireland in straight games. Second and third seeds Manuela Manetta and Orla Noom also moved through to the last eight, Manetta beatind Milja Dorenbos, while Noom disposed of Laura Pomportes.
