Kiwi Squash star gets to World Series finals
Kiwi Squash star Joelle King met her match yesterday at the World Series final in Chicago.
Ranked ninth internationally, King qualified for the World Series final after beating the second-ranked player from Egypt, El Welily.
But even before her match against another Egyptian, Nour El Tayeb, she admitted she was up against a pretty tough opponent.
“It's not over yet and I know I've got a big match on my hands tonight. Nour has been playing some amazing squash and she's number three in the world now for a reason. I'm trying not to be too excited yet. Obviously, I want to enjoy the moment and just play the best squash, to be honest.”
And after a tough match where they were neck and neck, the full-time score 3-2 decided who the winner was, Egypt's Nour El Tayeb.
