In the biggest upset on the opening day of qualifying action in the Women’s World Junior Team Championship, underdogs Wales (pic) crushed 3-time former champions Australia 3/0 in the World Squash Federation event in Boston, USA. “We don’t beat Australia at many sports,” said a jubilant Wales coach Andrew Evans after his team’s stunning win. Firm favourites Egypt, led by the new world individual champion Nour El Tayeb, cruised to a 3/0 win over New Zealand. Hosts USA, seeded to reach the final in what would be their best ever finish after competing in all the championships since 1985, also made a positive start in Pool B, beating event debutants Guyana 3/0.
