Top seed King beaten in Texas semi-finals

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 5/03/2017

Leading Kiwi squash player Joelle King has lost a tense semi-final at the Texas Open to Australian Donna Urquhart.

Tournament top seed King won the first game before going down 9-11 11-8 11-7 11-8 to the third seed.

It was a disappointing outcome for world No.11 King, who would have gone on to face Hong Kong second-seed Annie Au in the decider.

King had few problems earlier at the tournament, dispatching Belgian Nele Gilis and seventh-seeded Frenchwoman Colin Aumard in straight games.
