Nour El Tayeb with the Cleveland Classic trophy

Cleveland Classic: El Tayeb claims title after beating Evans

Nour El Tayeb has claimed the eighth PSA Tour title of her career, after beating Tesni Evans in the final of the Cleveland Classic.

The Egyptian, who was looking to bounce back after dropping down to World No.4 at the start of the month, won the match in four to beat the Welshwoman.

Tayeb, who also secured victory at the Carol Weymuller Open in October, was in control throughout the match, winning the first two games.

The World No.11 looked to fight back in the third, though, and brought the match to within one after winning it 11-9.

However, it would be the Egyptian that took the crown, winning the fourth game 11-9 to take a 3-1 victory in Cleveland.

The next time we see both players will be at the 2018-2019 PSA World Championships presented by the Walter Family in Chicago at the end of the month.

Result: Final

[1] Nour El Tayeb (EGY) bt [2] Tesni Evans (WAL) 3-1: 11-5, 11-7, 9-11, 11-9 (55m)
