R1 : Waters wraps up Round One

R1 : [14] Alison Waters (Eng) 3-0 [wc] Menna Nasser (Egy)     11-4, 11-5, 11-3 (23m)

A comfortable win for England’s Alison Waters to conclude Round One …

Ali was in a devasting form and just never let go of Menna’s throat today…


“You have to celebrate an ace, it doesn’t happen! I was pleased with how I played. I was pretty solid throughout and I felt like I was moving well so that was all I wanted to do. I just wanted to try and move well. I was disappointed with the way the game slipped away from me in Egypt last time so I wanted to come out and put in a good performance.

“I saw bits of her [Nouran Gohar’s] match. It looked like a big tussle and I haven’t played her for a while. We have had a few tough battles so I am, looking forward to that. I shall watch it back and try and get a gameplan ready for it.

“The thing is, I have beaten her before, not for a while, but I can go in knowing that I have and I can build on that. I will give it a good go because I have nothing to lose. The pressure is on her so I can come out and try and play my best squash.”
