Tomlinson stops Ramadan run in Paris ...

"I ran out of steam," confessed young Hana Ramadam after her final on French soil against favourite Millie Tomlinson, a match described as a "super final" by Promoter and Squash Passionate Fred Dumond.

The Egyptian, coming all the way from the qualifying, managed to snatch the first game 11/8 and at one game all, it was all possible for the young lady.

But Millie's experience and determination played a big role as she clinched the crucial third on a tie-break 12/10, closing down in the fourth, 11/8.

Ramadan run continues in Paris ...

Home hopes were dashed in Le Port Marly as Egyptian qualifier Hana Ramadan continued her cull of the seeds with a straight-games win over home favourite Coline Aumard, the fourth seed - not that there was a lot in it, as with all of Hana's matches so far.

In the final Hana will face an English opponent for the third time in four rounds.

Second seed Millie Tomlinson came from a game down to beat Scotland's Lisa Aitkin, the seventh seed.

Aitken edged the first 11-9 but Tomlinson struck back to take the next two games, both in extra points, before easing through the fourth.

Ramadan reaches last four

Egyptian qualifier Hana Ramadan followed up her round one win over top seed Emily Whitlock with another five-setter, this time beating fifth seed Julianne Courtice 11-9 in the fifth.

Ramadan will face France's Coline Aumard for a place in the final, the fourth beating compatriot Enora Villard in straight games.

Second see Millie Tomlinson eased past Tinne Gilis in three games, and faces unexpected opposition in the semis after Scotland's Lisa Aitken overcame third seed Zeina Mickawy in four games.

03-Jul, Round One:

Whitlock forced to retire in Paris as
Ramadan joins seven seeds in the quarters

It was not a good day for top seed English Emily Whitlock, who had to retire after a hamstring injury in the 5th against Egyptian qualifier Hana Ramadan.

"I feel sad to get injured and not get the chance to continue my stay in Le Port-Marly", declared a heartbroken Emily after her match. "I go home for physio now, hopefully my hamstring is not too bad."

She was still gracious in defeat and made sure to thank the tournament organisers "Merci to Fred and everyone who puts this tournament together," she concluded.

Hana now meets with Julianne Courtice in the quarters. The English girl defeated home favourite Anne Serme - wife of Lucas - in three games.

"Good first match," Courtice said, "first two games were close. The court was really warm, so long competitive match," she added.

Anna commented "I gave everything I had today but I was not consistent enough and physically it was very hard, also because of the heat.

"Julianne is a very talented player who attacks a lot and I didn't manage to keep her behind to prevent her from playing front. I wish her luck for the next rounds !"

Scot Lisa Aitken was relieved to close her match against qualifier Jasmine Hutton in four: "Wow it's hot," she smiled at the end, "Scottish girl not used to this !"

Aitken now meets very dangerous Zeina Mickawy, who beat qualifier Grace Gear in three games, two of those having gone to tie break.

Coline Aumard will be wondering why she plays an international PSA event as she keeps on playing French girls! After defeating Chloé Mesic in the first round in three, she now faces Team Mate Enora Villard who disposed of Alison Thompson in three close games.

The last quarter will be according to seeding, with seed #2 Millie Tomlinson playing Tinne Gilis.

English Upsets in Paris

It was a good day for the English pair Grace Gear and Jasmine Hutton in Port Marly as they both upset the seedings, beating Spanish Christina Gomez and English Kace Bartley respectively, both in three tough games.

Gear now plays Zeina Mickawy from Egypt, and Hutton faces Lisa Aitken from Scotland.

The two other qualifier spots go to Ali Hemingway, the 25 year old from Wales, who defeated Sanne Velkamp in a five game thriller, ending 12/10 in the 5th. Hemingway drew Millie Tomlinson, the second seed of the event.

As for the last spot, it's fluent French speaker Hana Ramadan, who won in Nantes two years ago, who felt comfortable against
Eva Fertekova today, but now has the difficult task of playing seed top Emily Whitlock.

01-Jul, Qualifying Round One:

A few musical chairs on this first day in Paris, with qualifyer seeded 1 Anne Serme finding herself a spot on the main draw.

It was not a good day for the French today, as both Fanny Segers and Marion Romba bowed to
Jasmine Hutton from England, and Czech Eva Fertekova respectively.

Sanne Veldkamp from Netherlands overcame Paulina Krywicka in 30m to play Ali Hemingway, while English girl Grace Gear will be happy to beat the always dangerous Nadeen Kotb from Egypt, recovering from injury but getting closer to her previous form.


They Said:

[8] Sanne Veldkamp (Ned) 3-1 Paulina Krzywicka (Pol)
               11-7, 9-11, 11-6, 11-9 (30m)

It was very hot day to play a match, but I think we both played well. Last time we played in Sweden it was also 3-1 but on a really cold court haha.

 I have never been here before but I really like the club and the people here, definitely a nice part of Paris.

The draw changed last minute so I'm a round further than expected and I hope to do well tomorrow !

Hi all today was a hot day to play squash but better than cold court. Sanne and me were very motivated to win the match and both of us run so much and ball was very happy to bouncing so much.

We try to end the ball so quickly and all balls were tight what was very hard to return but was gooood match.

I am varry happy to be in Paris and play in this tournament next time i will come stronger and see you again

[6] Grace Gear (Eng) 3-1 Nadeen Kotb (Egy)
               7-11, 11-4, 14-12, 11-1 (26m)

Happy to get the win against Nadeen as she is a very attacking player.

I played better the more the match went on making use of the whole of the court to move my opponent around which opened up the court for me.

Looking forward to my next round against Cristina.

Things did not turn out well as I want them to be but I gained experience for sure . I am not physically ready as I was injured and it is taking me a while to come back.

[7] Eva Fertekova (Cze) 3-1 Marion Romba (Fra)
                 11-4, 9-11, 11-5, 11-5 (21m)

Happy to be in the qualification finals as Marion was attacking and playing well.

It was very warm today and I was slowly getting used to that, but finally I found my length and targets on court. Looking forward to tomorrow !
