Overview

Top seed Sarah-Jane Perry progressed to the semi-final of the Monte Carlo Classic, PSA W35 event with a confident 3-1 victory over Guyana’s Nicolette Fernandes – keeping alive her hopes of lifting a second PSA World Tour title of the year.

World No.12 Perry edged a tight opening game before pressing on to double her lead in the second as she began to establish a rhythm.

Fernandes fought back in the third with a typical all-action display and excellent court coverage enabling her to work some openings for herself in a bid to get back into the game. However, Perry hit consistent length in the fourth to close out the encounter with a 13-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-1 victory, seeing her through to the last four.

She will face Line Hansen for a place in the showpiece event after the Dane progressed courtesy of an injury to her quarter-final opponent, Emily Whitlock.

Rachael Grinham and Jenny Duncalf will line up against each other in the other semi-final fixture with Grinham seeing off Tesni Evans and Duncalf preventing Natalie Grinham from facing her sister in the next round.
