England’s Victoria Lust put paid to US interest in the final of the Women’s Racquet Club Invitational when she upset second seed Latasha Khan in the semi-finals of the WISPA World Tour 8 squash event at The Racquet Club in St Louis, USA.

Third seed Lust, the 21-year-old world No38 from Cheltenham, stemmed a fightback by Khan to beat the 38-year-old world No31 from Seattle 11-9, 11-7, 9-11, 5-11, 11-5.

And top-seeded Dane Line Hansen doubled the US disappointment in the climax of the inaugural WISPA event at the Racquet Club when she defeated New York-based fourth seed Olivia Blatchford 11-6, 6-11, 11-2, 11-8 in the other semi.

Lust is celebrating her 11th Tour final appearance, while Hansen, the 27-year-old world No30 from Odense, is marking her 14th WISPA final.
