Pierrepont & Gaultier Win Macau Titles
2 Dec 2008
Top seed Gregory Gaultier, the world No3 from France, sailed through to the final of the men's $52,500 5-star PSA Tour event without dropping a game.
In the 30th PSA Tour final appearance of his career - and his fifth this year - Gaultier faced tour rival Karim Darwish, the Egyptian who succeeded him as world No2 in the Dunlop PSA rankings.
But it was Gaultier's day as the 25-year-old from Aix-en-Provence despatched second seed Darwish 11-6, 11-9, 11-5 to win the 14th Tour title of his career.
The final of the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event produced a stunning upset as England's sixth seed Suzie Pierrepont overcame her third higher-ranked opponent in three days.
Belying the fact that almost 20 ranking positions separate the pair, 23-year-old Pierrepont battled for five games to beat her Mexican opponent, the world No18, 11-6, 7-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4.
The victory earns Pierrepont the fourth - and biggest - Tour title of her career.
