Waters Wins Biggest Career Title At Carol Weymuller Open

It was appropriately at Heights Casino in New York that England's Alison Waters recorded a new high in her illustrious squash career - winning the WSA Gold 50 Carol Weymuller Open to claim her 10th, but biggest, Tour title.

The 30-year-old Londoner reached a career-high world No3 ranking in October 2010 - but just a year later saw her ranking plummet to 44 after taking time out to recover from an Achilles injury.

Waters was back in the world top five by the end of 2012 - since when she has won a fourth British National Championship title and, in August, secured a silver Commonwealth Games medal in the Mixed Doubles in Scotland.

Seeded three, the world No7 made her New York breakthrough in the semi-finals, where she ousted Egypt's world No3 Raneem El Welily to set up a final meeting with Omneya Abdel Kawy, the fifth seed from Egypt.

The pair's competitive history goes back to January 1998 when they met in the final of the British Junior U14 Open - with the Egyptian recording a 6-9, 9-1, 9-4, 9-6 victory! Waters held a 10-5 Tour head-to-head advantage going into the match - and was the winner of their most recent clash earlier this year in five games.

"The first game started a little gingerly with both players trying to find their rhythm, but they soon settled into some wonderful, long and skilful rallies," reported tournament organiser Linda Elriani. "The points went back and forth evenly until 7-7 with an array of different winners around the court. Ali was concentrating on keeping the ball out the middle where Omneya is so deadly and managed to do so for the most part but as soon as the ball was off the wall Omneya would step in with her volley drops and finish the point."
