R1: Hana Ramadan 3-0 Alex Haydon

Hana Ramadan (EGY) 3-0 Alex Haydon (AUS)  11-6, 12-10, 11-5 (28m)

Did you know? There was no Australian player in the women’s draw since 2019. The last one being Donna Lobban…. How the wheel turns, such a nation who dominated the World of Squash for so many years…

Hana : “Alex is a really great player, she’s good at moving me on court and she can change the depth of her length and put some pressure on me by taking the ball early.

“I’m really glad I won in three, I dropped off in the second game a bit, so I’m glad I closed that one out.

“She’s played two tournaments on PSA and everyone is tricky to play. I had to put on my ‘A’ game as I didn’t know what to expect. I knew it would be tough and even if I didn’t play my best squash today I was trying to retrieve everything she threw at me.”
