Sarah-Jane Perry Wins Second Title Of 2013
The impressive form of Sarah-Jane Perry continues as the Englishwoman claimed the WSA Tour 10 Mayfair Open in Toronto, Canada at the weekend.
The No.3 seed from Birmingham, England recorded straight games wins over Megan Craig and Lauren Selby in the opening rounds of the inaugural Canadian event, before lining up against second seed Sarah Kippax in the semi-finals.
Ranked just six places below Kippax, Perry overturned an early deficit to complete an unfancied win against her national compatriot in four games.
Perry took an early lead in the Mayfair Open final, as Egyptian Heba El Torky took her time to get into the match following some lengthy earlier matches.
However, El Torky found her footing in the next game and managed to disrupt Perry’s rhythm to claim a narrow second game win but Perry came back strongly and played out the victory in four games.
Perry, ranked at No.26 in the world, has risen 39 places in the WSA World Rankings since this time last year, and in that time has added five WSA titles to her haul, making six overall.
