World Squash Doubles: Day One

Malaysia’s Rachel Arnold and Nicol David defeated third seeds Rachael Grinham and Donna Urquhart 2-1 in the biggest upset on the opening day of the 2017 WSF World Doubles Squash Championships in Manchester.

Eight-time world champion David and Arnold ran out eventual winners with an 11/10, 9/11, 11/8 scoreline against Urquhart and Grinham – winner of two gold medals in doubles competition at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Sixth seeds Jenny Duncalf and Alison Waters came from 1-0 down to beat Laura Massaro and Sarah-Jane Perry [5] in an intriguing English battle. Having trailed 9/7 in the second, the lower seeds fought back to claim the victory 7/11, 11/10, 11/6.

Top seeded Alan Clyne and Greg Lobban (Scotland) won their first two matches to take them through to the quarter-final stage in the men’s draw, while Joelle King and Amanda Landers-Murphy [1] (New Zealand) also won their opener against Natalie Grinham and Milou van der Heijden (Netherlands).

Men’s top seeds Alan Clyne and Greg Lobban opened up with two solid wins, as did Dutchmen Dylan Bennett and Piedro Schweertman with two seeding upsets that put them in with a great chance of making the quarters.

New Zealand’s Joelle King and Paul Coll, top seeds in the mixed draw, begin their tournaments tomorrow against Scotland’s Douglass Kempsell and Lisa Aitken.
