HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2008 by siyoli

That time of the year has approached where we look back on the year that has passed, either frown or smile at some memories and milestones that we have reached. I am blessed to know that I look back with such a feeling of favour, and know God must be truly watching over me. The year 2008 was  superb!

Looking onwards to 2009, there are lots of tournaments and other surprises in store.

World Championship RESULTS

Posted in Uncategorized on December 9, 2008 by siyoli

Hello everyone!

Hope you have enjoyed navigating your way around the popular squash websites. South Africa finished 10th overall – not too bad considering we were ranked 13th AND had the world No.4 and No.5 teams were in our pool. Excuses . . . excuses. . . i hear you say!

Personally, I had a successful tournament placing 5 out of 6 wins under my belt. Included in that was a surprise (but well fought for) victory against the World No.22, Annelize Naude from the Netherlands.

Here are those results:

 

RSA vs MALAYSIA
Played: Deliah Arnold (World No 32)
Lost: 11-8, 14-12, 11-4 in 40 minutes

RSA vs NETHERLANDS
Played: Annelize Naude (World No.22)
Won: 13-11, 12-10, 9-11, 11-5 in 37 minutes

RSA vs GERMANY
Played: Sina Wall (World No.214)
Won: 9-11, 11-4, 11-3, 11-8 in 39 minutes

RSA vs SPAIN
Played: Alicia Alvarez Riaza
Won: 11-4, 11-1, 11-3 in 16 minutes

RSA vs FRANCE
Played: Maud Duplomb (World No.80)
Won: 14-12, 5-11, 12-10, 15-13  in 43 minutes

RSA vs CANADA
Played: Carolyn Russel (World No.100)
Won: 11-5, 11-4, 11-7 in 13 minutes

These results are an indication that when I join the professional circuit (WISPA), a goal to have a ranking that reflects me in the Top 50 in the world at the end of 2009 is more than realistic, more than possible.
