Sarah-Jane Perry beats Annie Au to reach NetSuite Open final

Sarah-Jane Perry remained on course to defend her NetSuite Open title in San Francisco with a comprehensive 11-4 11-7 11-9 25 minute semi-final victory of Annie Au of Hong Kong.

The women’s final of the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour event will see World Champion Raneem El Welily, who booked her place in the decider with a comprehensive 3-0 defeat of Laura Massaro, go up against defending champion Sarah-Jane Perry after the Englishwoman swept aside the challenge of Hong Kong’s Annie Au with a ruthless 3-0 win.

Perry, who beat eight-time World Champion Nicol David in the title-decider twelve months ago in what was the biggest win of her career, was in complete control from the outset as she picked Au apart from the off set, taking the opening game for the loss of just four points and continued to enjoy complete control as she wrapped up the match in just 25 minutes.

“I’ve got fantastic memories here from last year. Tomorrow against Raneem I have no expectations. I just have to go out and do the best I can. I watched the match yesterday between Raneem and Laura so I know how well she’s playing at the moment but I’ll give it my best tomorrow to try and defend the title.”
