ORLA NOOM WINS HILLEGOM FLOWERBULB OPEN

The 23-year old Dutch girl dominated play from the outset against her one year older and higher-ranked opponent from England - and took the opening game with relative ease.
 
Top seed Siddall, 24, from Pontefract in Yorkshire, fought back to take a 9-6 lead in the second, but it was the determined Noom however who clinched game two on a tie-break. The event favourite from England did not give up though, making the Hoofddorp heroine earn every single point.
 
Noom proved too strong in the end as the world number 41 claimed her 11-6, 12-10, 11-8 victory to become the third successive Dutch winner of the title.
