It's Rachael ....

Top seed Rachael Grinham wins in Dallas ...


Top seeds tested in Texas semis

Is sounds like they had a tremendous semi-finals night in Texas, with top seeds Rachael Grinham and Kasey Brown both having to come from two games down to secure their places in the final.

Grinham lost the first two games 9/11, 9/11 against Sarah Kippax, edged the third 13/11 and went on to win the final two games 11/5, 11/7.

Brown was up against Joelle King, and lost the first pair of games 5/11, 6/11. She levelled the match 11/7, 11/4 then won the decider 12/10.

As you can see, all we have are the bare scores - if anyone can supply more details on the matches that would be much appreciated ... texas@squashsite.co.uk

Rachael wins Grinhams Clash

Top seed Rachael Grinham put paid to the comeback ruin of younger sister Natalie with a straight games win to reach the semi-finals of the Texas Open in Dallas.

She meets England's Sarah Kippax for a place in the final after the seventh seed produced a four-game upset against third-seeded Malaysian Low Wee Wern.

The other semi-final will be a Trans-Tasman affair with Australia's second seed Kasey Brown taking on New Zealand's Joelle King.

Round One:
Natalie Sets Up Grinhams Clash

Australian-born sisters Rachael and Natalie Grinham will meet for the first time since contesting the World Open semi-finals in September 2009 when they line-up in the quarter-finals of the Texas Open at Downtown YMCA in Dallas.

Natalie, the younger of the pair who is making her Tour comeback after the birth of her first child last year, battled to a five-game first round upset over sixth-seeded US teenager Amanda Sobhy.

By contrast, top seed Rachael Grinham, winner of the title in 2004, needed only three games to see off German qualifier Sina Wall.

The 34-year-old world No4 from Queensland will be hoping to avenge her defeat by Natalie in Amsterdam 19 months ago when the Toowoomba twosome meet in Dallas for the 24th time since August 2000.

Hong Kong's Joey Chan also pulled off a five-game upset when she beat Malaysia's eighth seed Delia Arnold. Chan, the 22-year-old world No23, will now take on fourth seed Joelle King, the defending champion from New Zealand who removed US qualifier Olivia Blatchford in straight games.

Atwater: 28 Mar-02 Apr   Cayman: 03-09 Apr   Texas: 12-17 Apr
