Whitlock repeats title feat in Wales

More from the author

World number 25 Emily Whitlock justified her billing as the overriding tournament favourite to comfortably beat 27-year-old Czech Lucie Fialova and retain her 2012 Colywn Classic title.

The 19-year-old, who currently resides in Chesire, showed maturity beyond her years to triumph 11-5, 11-6, 11-3 over the number two seed amid the pressure of a boisterous home crowd.

The straight-game win also marks Whitlock’s seventh WSA tour title and in doing so, ensured the England number six did not drop a game in the entire tournament.

The Macclesfield-born teenager will now turn her attention to the Hong Kong Open next week, where she is scheduled to face in-form French number one Camille Serme in her opening round.
