Unseeded Egyptian Tops Strong Field in Weymuller Squash

Unseeded Raneem el Weleily stunned a strong international field to win the Carol Weymuller Open at the Heights Casino over the weekend.

A $45,000 first prize helped attract top women squash players from distant parts, according to Casino Squash director Linda Elriani.

After two tough 5-set matches against Laura Massaro (4) of England and Camille Serme (7) of France, the 22-year-old El Weleily polished off second-seed Madeleine Perry of Ireland and top seed Jenny Duncalf of England, who had won the two previous years, in straight sets.

The score in the final was 11-7, 15-13, 11-4.
