On Saturday she saved two match points to overcome Sue Wright, the British national champion, in a long, thrilling and often brilliant match, and yesterday she swept aside the young and inexperienced Linda Charman in only 25 minutes for the loss of a mere four points.
Geaves, a 25-year-old England international with plenty of talent, has rarely played so well in beating Wright, by 9-6, 4-9, 1-9,
9-7, 10-8. She will probably have to play even better if she is to beat Cassie Jackman, who wants to become world No 1 this year, in today's final.
However, Jackman's was a surprisingly patchy performance against Suzanne Horner, the fourth seed who has twice been a member of English world title- winning squads, and there were moments during Jackman's 6-9, 10-8, 9-4, 3-9, 9-4 success when two big upsets in two days seemed quite possible.
'I got too anxious and played too many loose shots. I'm just relieved to be through,' Jackman said.Reuse content
