EMMA BEDDOES WINS LE SPORT OPEN

Beddoes, the 23-year-old World No.40 from Nottingham, reached the final without dropping a game - and, remarkably, without facing a seeded opponent.
 
Lust, ranked almost 60 places lower, made her breakthrough in the opening round, beating second seed Deon Saffery, from Wales. The 19-year-old from Maulden in Bedfordshire maintained her giant-killing run by despatching the fifth seed, then her third-seeded compatriot Fiona Moverley before reaching her first WISPA Tour final.
 
But Beddoes was too strong for her teenage opponent, beating Lust to win the second Tour title of her career.
