The 2018 Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Professional Squash Championships wrapped up today with a contest between the 1st and 3rd seeds in the event. The top seed, Shahin, came out strong early setting the tone for the match with some hard hitting length and full stretch gets. It looked early like Shahin strategy would be to push the pace and test the stamina of Kobayshi. The first two games ended up both needing extra and were split by the two players, Shahin winning the first and Kobayashi taking the second. By winning the second game however, Kobayashi had to expend a lot of energy. The Egyptian player seemed to sense a little fatigue from Kobayashi and she began to push the pace more with hard hitting length and attacking with volleys at every opportunity. She comfortably took the third and was well placed to take the title. The crowd was of course hoping for a fifth and deciding game by Shahin had other plans as she was relentless with her pressure. This began to affect Kobayashi as we saw more and more errors creep in to her game. Shahin was able to safely carry the momentum to the finish line and win her first Winnipeg Winter Club Women’s Professional Squash Championship.
