Waters In Line For US WISPA Double

England’s world No6 Alison Waters is predicted to double her collection of WISPA World Tour squash titles in her first two tournaments of the year in the USA over the next two weeks.

The 25-year-old from London is top seed in both the long-established Harrow Greenwich Open, a $37,450 event at the Field Club of Greenwich in Connecticut, and the Burning River Classic, a $39,050 tournament in its fourth year at Cleveland Racquet Club in Ohio. Both are WISPA Silver 30 level events.

In each event, Waters is projected to line up against second seed Omneya Abdel Kawy, the world No7 from Egypt, in the final.

Waters has twice finished as runner-up in Greenwich - in 2006 and 2008 - while Abdel Kawy was the beaten finalist last year. In the 2009 Burning River Classic, Waters won the runner-up cheque.

The Harrow Greenwich Open takes place between 21-24 January, followed by the Burning River Classic from 31 January to 3 February.

Played alongside the Harrow Greenwich Open will be the North American Open Men’s Hardball Doubles, an ISDA-sanctioned championship and one of the prominent squash events in the United States.
