Qualifier Alison takes Les Pyramides Title. That’s four WSA Titles this year.
[Q] Alison Waters (ENG) beat  Low Wee Wern (MAS) 11/8, 12/14, 11/5, 11/8 (70m)
The final in the WSA Les Pyramides Tournament here on the outskirts of Paris turned out to be a fantastic exhibition of how squash should be played, between two players at the opposite end of the age scale.
21 year old Malaysian Low Wee Wern, seeded 7 for this tournament, has played some great exciting squash all week and came up against experienced campaigner Alison Waters from England, who had come through the qualifiers, although we all know the reason Alison is so low in the rankings at present. That will not be the case very soon the way she is playing, taking her fourth WSA Title this year.
Wee Wern took the first two points in the first, but Alison stayed calm and took a 5/2 lead, but Wee Wern kept pace and levelled up at 6/6, Alison took the lead again at 8/6, Wee Wern again levelled at 8/8 but Alison then put the finishing touches to the game and won 11/8. Second game Alison took the first two points but Wee Wern soon moved into a 5/3 lead which Alison turned around again into a 7/5 lead.
Throughout the first two games both ladies had been playing exquisite squash, with Wee Wern showing some fantastic retrieving powers and Alison playing in her usual steady calm controlled manner. In the third Wee Wern took the first two points but then Alison went on a roll of 5 straight points then unfortunately for her put three consecutive shots into the tin to allow Wee Wern to level at 5/5.
However with one sweet volley drop she took the serve and finished the game in one hand at 11/5. Alison had taken more control of the match as the fourth game started and moved menacingly into an 8/4 lead, but Wee Wern pulled back to level at 8/8 helped by two more tins from Alison, but then Alison took control again to finish the game at 11/8 and the match 3 – 1 after 70 minutes of excellent squash.
Congratulations to Alison, who is obviously well on course to complete her come back into the top echelons of the sport, but also congratulations to Wee Wern for her excellent conduct and play here at Les Pyramides, I am sure we will be seeing her in many more finals in the future.
