Lust Lifts First Women’s Tour Title Of The Year

England’s Victoria Lust beat top-seeded Italian Manuela Manetta in the final of the Women’s Liberty Bell Open to lift the first WISPA World Tour squash title of the year at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club in Berwyn, USA.

The second seed reached the final without dropping a game. But favourite Manetta, the world No31 from Parma, started off well by taking the first game from the English underdog.

But 21-year-old Lust battled back to take the next three games – the third after a lengthy tie-break – to record an unexpected 6-11, 11-4, 11-5, 15-13 victory.

The win rings up the third WISPA Tour title for the former British Junior champion from Cheltenham.
