Her opponent enjoyed the support of the home crowd, and gave the Englishwoman her toughest match of the week, but sixth-seed Laura Pomportes, playing in her first WSA final, ultimately fell 13/11, 11/7, 6/11, 11/4 in 45 minutes, the longest of the tournament.
A slip early in the fourth hampered Pomportes movement, and despite hitting some crisp winners it was Perry who stepped up to the mark to quickly finish off the game and the match.
Perry was as much relieved as pleased: “Nothing ruthless today,” she admitted, “I was a bit slow at the start and had nothing in my shots. All credit to Laura in the first, it took me a while to realise I was going to have to work hard, but I had a typical lapse in the third.
“A week off now before starting training again – not here, unfortunately, unless I miss my plane on purpose!”
