In the 4 matches of day 1 at the Cayman Islands Open, Australian Donna Urquhart (pic ri) produced ‘one of, if not the’ best results of her career when she upset English world No5 Alison Waters (11-5, 11-9, 9-11, 10-12, 11-7 ) in the inaugural WISPA World Series event. An earlier tussle saw Amanda Sobhy, the 17-year-old US-girl, taking on Irish veteran Madeline Perry. In a dramatically close encounter, fifth seed Perry twice had to come from behind to topple the teenage qualifier 6-11, 18-16, 3-11, 11-9, 11-8 in 56 minutes. England’s No2 seed Jenny Duncalf was also fully extended in the last first round match of the day when she was taken to 5 games by Joelle King before beating the unseeded New Zealander 11-7, 2-11, 11-3, 9-11, 11-3. The world No2 will now face French number one Camille Serme after the 7th seed defeated Malaysian Low Wee Wern 11-8, 11-6, 8-11, 11-2. Remaining 1st round matches:  Nicol David (MAS) v Jaclyn Hawkes (NZL);  Kasey Brown (AUS) v [Q] Natalie Grinham (NED);  Rachael Grinham (AUS) v Marlene West (CAY);  Annie Au (HKG) v [Q] Sarah Kippax (ENG).
