REPORTS

Garcia Downs Todd To Claim Title



Mexicoís Diana Garcia claimed the second Tour title of her career on Sunday afternoon, after she got the better of Canadian Nikki Todd in the final of the JK Windsor Open at the Devonshire Mall in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Garcia came into the tournament as the No.2 seed, but she was actually the highest ranked player in the draw, and she started her campaign for the week against Canadaís Catherine Giachino, winning in straight games, and dropping just ten points in the contest.

She came through her quarter final contest with compatriot and No.7 seed Diana Gasca in four games, before then getting the better of the tournamentís surprise package, unseeded Ecuadorian Maria Moya, also in four games.

The final saw Garcia take on Todd, with the pair meeting for the sixth time on Tour. The Mexican came in with just the one win in their previous five meetings, but that came in the final of the Copa Produbanco Ė PSA Quito-Arrayanes Squash Open back in 2019, when Garcia claimed her maiden Tour title.

The first game of the final on Sunday afternoon was a tight one, going deep into a tie-break, and it was the 29-year-old Mexican that took it 15-13. That was crucial moving forward in the final, as she took that momentum and maintained it throughout, to win in three games, and to claim her second victory on Tour.

Todd and Garcia Into Final In Ontario

The final of the JK Windsor Open is set at the Devonshire Mall in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, with home favourite and top seed Nikki Todd ready to take on Mexicoís Diana Garcia for the Challenger 5 level down.

Todd, the top seed for the competition, took on Japanís Erisa Sano Herring in the semi-finals, after the No.5 seed had taken out No.3 seed Laura Tovar in the last eight. The pair were level after two games, before Todd was able to move out into a lead after the third, one she did not relinquish. An 11-5 win in the fourth game gave her the victory, and saw her move through to the final of the event.

She will now face the tournamentís No.2 seed, Mexicoís Diana Garcia, after the World No.96 overcame the challenge of the unseeded Maria Moya. The Ecuadorian had already gotten the better of two seeded players to reach the semis, but Garcia proved to be a step too far. A 14-12 tie-break win in the third was crucial for the Mexican, who then went on to take the fourth as well to seal the deal.

Todd and Garcia will now meet in the final of the JK Windsor Open on Sunday afternoon at the Devonshire Mall in Ontario, Canada, where the pair will face off for the Challenger 5 level crown. You can keep up to date with live scores from the final on the PSA World Tourís website.
 
Herring And Moya Gatecrash Semis

The surprises keep on coming in Ontario, as Ecuadorian Maria Moya took out a seeded player for the second day in succession, and she will be joined by Japanís Erisa Sano Herring in the last four after another surprise win on Friday.

On the opening day of the Challenger 5 level competition, Moya had defeated No.4 seed Arisha Khan, and she then came up against Canadian Sara Khan, the tournamentís No.8 seed, in the quarter finals. The Ecuadorian was in fine form throughout, spending just 14 minutes on court and dropping only nine points in the match! She will now face Mexicoís Diana Garcia, the No.2 seed, in the semis after Garcia came through an all-Mexican clash with Diana Gasca.

The other semi-final on Saturday in Ontario will see Japanís Erisa Sano Herring take on top seed Nikki Todd. Herring, the No.5 seed, overcame the challenge of No.3 seed Laura Tovar in a five-game battle, while home favourite Todd defeated compatriot Amal Izhar in four games, coming from behind to take the win.

The semi-finals of the JK Windsor Open will take place on Saturday, August 20 at the Devonshire Mall in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, where the last four will go head-to-head to reach the finals on Sunday afternoon.
