Withington and Malik Victorious Again

Englandís Finnlay Withington and Torrie Malik claimed the titles at the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open on Sunday afternoon.

The pair, who were victorious at the the British National Junior Championships sat the end of October, both reigned supreme on home soil once again this week in Croydon.

Withington came into the tournament as the No.6 seed, and his week in Croydon started with a battle. He had to go the distance to overcome the challenge of Brazilís Vinicius Leao Rodrigues. The Englishman led twice, but saw Rodrigues level on both occasions. In a rapid-fire encounter, Withington took the fifth game to win in just 48 minutes.

He then followed that up with a quarter final victory over the tournamentís No.2 seed, Kuwaitís Ammar Altamimi, winning in four. The semi-finals saw Withington take on New Zealandís Joel Arscott, with the Englishman dropping just 15 points en route to a straight games victory.

The junior then took on compatriot Perry Malik in the final on Sunday, and after two games, the pair were level. From there, Withington took control of the contest, winning the third game 11-7, before then also claiming the fourth game 11-5 to secure his maiden Tour title.

The womenís event was won by Englandís Torrie Malik, with the 19-year-old securing her second title of the month, after she won her maiden Tour crown in Brno last week.

She started with a win against Scotlandís Catherine Holland, before then defeating Portugalís Sofia Aveiro Pita in the quarter finals, taking just 18 minutes to get the job done. Malik then overcame compatriot Kiera Marshall in the last four, also winning in straight games.

The final saw a repeat of Octoberís British National Junior Championship, with Malik taking on Asia Harris, and once again, it went the way of the former. She took a two-game lead in the final, but saw Harris fight back to win the third game 12-10. However, Malik fought back to win the fourth by the same scoreline, to claim her second title in as many weeks.
 
Semis

All-English Finals Day Set

It will be an all-English finals day at the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open, with Torrie and Perry Malik both making it through. They will face Asia Harris and Finnlay Withington, respectively.

Perry Malik took on top seed Miles Jenkins on semi-finals day at the Challenger 3 level competition, and he came through in straight games to cause an upset. He won the first game 11-5, before a tighter second game also went his way. Malik claimed the second 11-8, and kept the momentum in his favour, moving through to the final thanks to an 11-6 scoreline in the third.

He will now face Finnlay Withington, the No.6 seed, in the final. The Englishman took on New Zealandís Joel Arscott in the semis, and dropped just 15 points in the contest. He won the first game 11-3, and then won both the second and third games 11-6 to advance through to the final of the competition.

The final in Croydon will be a repeat of the British National Junior Championships final from two weeks ago. On that day, Torrie Malik defeated Asia Harris to claim her fifth age-group nationals title, and the pair will do battle in Sundayís final at the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open as well.

Malik spent just 24 minutes on court in her semi-final with compatriot Kiera Marshall, winning in straight games. Meanwhile, Harris had to defeat fellow Englishwoman Isabel McCullough in four games to make her way through.

The finals of the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open will take place on Sunday, November 13, with the Malik siblings taking on Finnlay Withington and Asia Harris for the Challenger 3 level crowns.
Round 1

Arscott Stops English Domination

A busy opening day at the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open saw 24 matches across two rounds, with New Zealandís Joel Arscott being the only non-Englishman into the last four of either draw.

The No.4 seed started his day with a match against Spainís Pablo Dolz. He won the first game 11-8, before then dropping just four more points across the next two games. The Kiwi then took on Englishman Hasnaat Farooqi in the quarter finals, and produced another sublime performance, dropping just five points in total in an 11-2, 11-1, 11-2 victory.

Arscott will now face Englandís Finnlay Withington in the last four. The young Englishman, who won the British National Junior Championship crown last month, had to survive a five-game battle with Brazilís Vinicius Leao Rodrigues in the opening round, before then causing an upset to down No.2 seed Ammar Altamimi in the last eight, beating the Kuwaiti in four games.

The other semi-final in the menís event will be an all-English affair, with top seed Miles Jenkins taking on Perry Malik, the No.3 seed. Jenkins defeated compatriot Noah Meredith in four games, while Malik downed Will Satter in straight games in the last eight.

It will be an all-English semi-final line-up in the womenís draw at the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open, with No.8 seed Isabel McCullough causing the major upset of the day.

After losing the first game of her opening round contest with Belgian Marie Van Riet, McCullough fought back to win the next three games, all by an 11-9 scoreline. She then followed that up with a straight games win over No.4 seed Amna Fayyaz, two of those being tie-breaks, to move through to the semi-finals.

Her opponent in the semi-finals will be No.2 seed Asia Harris. The Englishwoman defeated compatriot Katie Cox in the last eight, dropping just ten points. The other match in the womenís event on Sunday will see top seed Torrie Malik and fellow Englishwoman Kiera Marshall do battle, after the pair both won their quarter finals contest in three.

The semi-finals of the Telsa Media David Lloyd Purley Open will take place on Saturday, November 12, with the last four in both draws aiming to make it through to Sundayís finals in Croydon, England.
