Nicolette & Naude Net Upsets In Monte Carlo
Unseeded Annelize Naude and Nicolette Fernandes secured unexpected places in the quarter-finals of the Women’s Monte Carlo Classic after surprise first round wins in the $25,300 WISPA World Tour squash event in its 15th year at Stade Louis II in Monte Carlo in Monaco.
Naude, the world No41 from the Netherlands, scored the biggest scalp – battling for 70 minutes to overcome fifth seed Sarah Kippax, the world No22 from England, 11-6, 11-9, 4-11, 12-14, 13-11.
The 33-year-old from Amsterdam will now line up against France’s Isabelle Stoehr after the fourth seed despatched compatriot Laura Pomportes, a qualifier, 11-2, 11-3, 11-4.
Nicolette Fernandes, a former world No27 from Guyana still fighting to regain her former form after a major knee injury, also needed five games to get the better of Italy’s eighth seed Manuela Manetta 11-1, 12-10, 10-12, 3-11, 11-3.
The London-based 27-year-old, currently ranked 52 in the world, will now face local favourite Camille Serme – the No2 seed from France seeking to become her country’s first Monte Carlo Classic champion.
But the 21-year-old world No7 from Paris was given a stern test by Egypt teenager Heba El Torky before finally beating the 19-year-old from Alexandria 3-11, 11-6, 11-8, 4-11, 11-5 in exactly one hour.
