Monte Carlo Classic 2010
25-29 Oct, Monaco, $25k
Abdel Kawy Hits The Jackpot
At Monte Carlo

Omneya Abdel Kawy became the first Egyptian to win the Women's Monte Carlo Classic title after beating former champion Vanessa Atkinson in the final at Stade Louis II in Monaco.

Atkinson, the third seed from the Netherlands who was champion in 2005, was celebrating her 40th appearance in a WISPA World Tour final.

But it was Abdel Kawy's day as the 25-year-old top seed from Cairo fought for 33 minutes to beat Atkinson 11-5, 11-7, 4-11, 11-9 to celebrate her maiden title-winning triumph.

It was the latest success in a fine run of form for Abdel Kawy who reached the final of the World Open in her home country for the first time only last month.

The Monte Carlo Classic success marks the eighth Tour title of Abdel Kawy's career.

The runner-up also had her share of the limelight, however, when a special presentation was made to Vanessa Atkinson by The Monégasque Fédération to mark her tenth appearance in the Monte Carlo Squash Classic since the first edition in 1996 - in which she reached the final four times and won it in 2005.

26-Oct, Round One:
Nicolette & Naudé Net Upsets In Monte Carlo

Unseeded Annelize Naudé and Nicolette Fernandes secured unexpected places in the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Classic after surprise first round wins at Stade Louis II in Monte Carlo in Monaco.

Naudé, the world No41 from the Netherlands, scored the biggest scalp - battling for 70 minutes to overcome fifth seed Sarah Kippax, the world No22 from England, 11-6, 11-9, 4-11, 12-14, 13-11.

The 33-year-old from Amsterdam will now line up against France's Isabelle Stoehr after the fourth seed despatched compatriot Laura Pomportes, a qualifier, 11-2, 11-3, 11-4.

Nicolette Fernandes, a former world No27 from Guyana still fighting to regain her former form after a major knee injury, also needed five games to get the better of Italy's eighth seed Manuela Manetta 11-1, 12-10, 10-12, 3-11, 11-3.

The London-based 27-year-old, currently ranked 52 in the world, will now face local favourite Camille Serme - the No2 seed from France seeking to become her country's first Monte Carlo Classic champion.

But the 21-year-old world No7 from Paris was given a stern test by Egypt teenager Heba El Torky before finally beating the 19-year-old from Alexandria 3-11, 11-6, 11-8, 4-11, 11-5 in exactly one hour.
