Naude Stuns Stoehr In Classic Upset
Unseeded Annelize Naude continued her giant-killing run in the Women’s Monte Carlo Classic when she upset fourth-seeded French opponent Isabelle Stoehr in the quarter-finals of the $25,300 WISPA World Tour squash event in its 15th year at Stade Louis II in Monaco.
Only 24 hours after despatching England’s fifth seed Sarah Kippax, the world No41 from the Netherlands ousted Stoehr, ranked 23 places higher, 5-11, 11-6, 11-7, 11-5 in 29 minutes.
The 33-year-old from Amsterdam will now face favourite Omneya Abdel Kawy, the world No4 from Egypt who defeated Orla Noom, the No7 seed from the Netherlands, 11-5, 11-5, 11-2.
Two of the top European players, who have faced each other four times in regional tournaments on the continent over the past two years, meet for the first time on the WISPA World Tour in the Monte Carlo semi-finals.
Camille Serme, the second seed from Paris who is hoping to become the first ever French winner of the title, beat Guyana’s unseeded Nicolette Fernandes 11-2, 11-8, 11-2.
The 21-year-old world No7 will face Vanessa Atkinson, the third seed from the Netherlands who reached the final as a qualifier in her first appearance in the event in 1999, then won the title in 2005.
Atkinson, a former world number one, removed Ireland’s sixth seed Aisling Blake 11-7, 12-10, 5-11, 11-7.
