Williams and Ramadan win in Bendigo

New Zealand’s Evan Williams and Egypt’s Hana Ramadan have taken out the respective Men’s and Women’s Open titles at the 2016 Bendigo International Open Squash Championships on Sunday.

In the Men’s Open Final, top seed Williams secured his fifth career PSA World Tour title and third in the space of three months by defeating Swiss sixth seed Dimitri Steinmann in a seesawing five gamer.

World number 92 Williams burst out of the blocks early to win the first two games 11-7, before Steinmann wrestled back control of the match to win the following two games in authoritative fashion.

Steinmann’s revival sent the match to a much anticipated fifth game, but it was Williams who was able to reverse the momentum and take out the last to secure a 11-7, 11-7, 1-11, 2-11,11-5 victory in 53 minutes.

The Women’s Open Final saw Ramadan face local Australian hope Jessica Turnbull in a match that pitted the tournament’s respective sixth and fifth seeds against each other.

Ramadan, who had progressed to the final after upsetting first and third seeds Millie Tomlinson and Nouran El Torky in the earlier stages of the tournament, assumed control of the match by winning the first two games.

Sensing the final slipping away, Turnbull lifted in the third to take it out 9-11 and get herself back in the contest.

But it wasn’t enough for the Queenslander, as Ramadan held her nerve again - as she had numerous times in the tournament - to secure an 11-6, 11-4, 9-11, 11-9 victory.

Many of the players that featured in the Men’s and Women’s Opens in Bendigo will now turn their attention to the 2016 Victorian Open, which will get underway on Tuesday August 2, with finals matches to take place on Sunday August 7.

Turnbull makes first final in Bendigo

An exhilarating round of semi-final matches highlighted the third of competition at the 2016 Bendigo International Open Squash Championships on Saturday.

In the Women’s draw, fifth seed Jessica Turnbull will fly the flag for Australia when she takes on sixth seed Hana Ramadan in the final.

Turnbull’s path to the final was reasonably straight forward; easing past South Korea’s Yura Choi in straight games - 11/5, 11/4, 11/8 - inside 23 minutes to reach her first PSA final.

Ramadan on the other hand had to fight back from a two game deficit to get the better of Nouran El Torky in a gripping all-Egyptian semi final, with the 18-year-old taking out a 9/11, 12/14, 11/9, 13/11, 11/8 victory in 72 minutes.

Turnbull and Ramadan will now play off for the Women’s title at 3:00pm Sunday AEST.

In the Men’s draw, Vincent Droesbeke’s exciting run came to an end at the hands of tournament top seed Evan Williams, but not before the unseeded Frenchman pushed the New Zealander all the way to five games.

Droesbeke led 2-1 at the end of the third game, and in a tournament full of upsets, another seemed to be on the cards.

But Williams managed to regroup from that point onwards, and went on to secure a 9/11, 11/7, 3/11, 11/8, 11/3 victory in 46 minutes.

The other Men’s semi-final was equally as grueling, with fourth seed Dimitri Steinmann eventually getting the better of number two seed Elvinn Keo to progress to the final.

Steinmann stamped his authority early by winning the first two games, before the Malaysian fought back to take out the third.

In the thrilling fourth game, Steinmann managed to hold his nerve and secure an 11/2, 11/5, 6/11, 11/9 in 54 minutes.

He will now meet Williams in the Men’s final on Sunday, which will take place at 3:45pm Sunday AEST.

29-Jul, Quarters:
Top two crash out in women's quarters

Two rounds of play today at the Bendigo International in Victoria, and two big upsets in the women's quarter-finals as both top seeds were beaten.

Top seed Millie Tomkinson suffered her first defeat in 17 matches as her run of three PSA tournament victories came to an end as the Englishwoman was beaten in four games by sixth-seeded Egyptian Hana Ramadan. She'll face compatriot Nouran El Torky for a place in the final.

In the bottom half of the draw second seeded South African Siyoli Waters lost out in four games to seventh seeded Korean Yura Choi, who now meets Australia's last hope Jessica Turnbull - who herself produced a minor upset in beating fourth seed Sachika Ingale - in the semis.

In the men's draw three of the top four seeds are through to the semis with top seeded Kiwi Evan Williams set to face unseeded Frenchman Vincent Droesbeke while second and fourth seeds Elvinn Keo and Dimitri Steinmann meet in the other semi-final.

City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Fyffe, Squash & Racquetball Victoria President Nicci Rossouw and opening match players Courtney West (Aus) and Dimitri Steinmann (Sui).
