South Africa's top ranked female squash player Siyoli Waters has just exited the Allam British Open 2015 hosted in Hull, which is described as the Wimbledon of squash. Waters, who lives in Cape Town, beat her previous best in the tournament by reaching the Last 16 before going out to 4th seed Nour El Sherbini of Egypt, a match that lasted 24 minutes.

Waters had beaten 15th seed Jenny Duncalf of England in the previous round after a gruelling 56 minutes. "I couldn't match her accuracy today. I am happy to have gone one round further this year – top 16,” said Waters.

"I have another event in Egypt next week, the Sharm El Sheik Open."

Meanwhile South Africa's top ranked male, Stephen Coppinger, went out to Egypt's Zahed Mohamed in round one, a match that took just over an hour.
