England’s Fiona Moverley fought back from one-game down in the final of the 2016 Corporation Service Company Delaware Open 2016, PSA W10 tournament, to secure her sixth and biggest PSA World Tour title to date.
The 29-year-old from Beverley, Hull, followed up semifinal finishes in her last two tournaments at the Granite Open and Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Open by scything past Georgina Kennedy and Hollie Naughton to reach the final against four seed Nikki Todd, who ousted top seeded Siyoli Waters in an impressive semifinal performance.
“The final had a nervy start to the first two games, where Todd took total advantage by using a combination of volley drops and working boasts to good effect to sneak out the first game,” reported Tournament Director Ray Chan-A-Sue. “However, at the business end of the second game, Moverley seem to find her length which forced Todd into some loose balls that Moverley promptly dispatched.
“The third and fourth games, saw more of the same, with Moverley moving Todd to all four corners of the court, cutting off any loose balls on the volley. Down 7-1 in the fourth, Todd put up slight resistance to the English woman’s onslaught, but it was all in vain as Moverley closed out the game with a couple of beautiful lobs and a volley drop to claim her first Delaware title.”
Moverly joins the likes of Amanda Sobhy, Delia Arnold, and fellow English international Sarah-Jane Perry in winning the CSC Delaware Open.
The CSC, one of the largest registered agent service companies in the world, represents hundreds of thousands of business entities worldwide, including nearly 90% of the Fortune 500.
