Tesni Evans Battles Back To Reach Final In Cleveland

Tesni Evans has set-up a Women’s Cleveland Classic final clash with No 1 seed Nour El Tayeb in Ohio.

The No 2 seed came from one game down to beat England’s Victoria Lust in her semi-final on Sunday.

Evans triumphed 4-11, 12-10, 11-8, 11-4 after a 78-minute battle at the Cleveland Racquet Club.

Lust, now based in Canada, was seeded four for the $51,250 event.

Evans, who has slipped to 11 in the world rankings, has lived up to her seeding to reach her first final of the year.

But she faces a tough test on Monday against the world No 4 from Egypt who beat England’s Alison Waters , the third seed, in the other semi-final – 11-9, 11-9, 11-2.

Waters beat Evans at last month’s Tournament of Champions event in New York, but now there will be no repeat of that clash.
