Commonwealth Bronze for Tesni

Commonwealth Bronze for Tesni

Karakal star and British champion Tesni Evans won Wales' first Commonwealth Games squash medal since Alex Gough's bronze in 1998.

Tesni triumphed over eight-time world champion Nicol David of Malaysia 3-1 in the bronze medal match, winning two tight final games after twice Commonwealth champion, Nicol, had had levelled the match at one game all.

"I feel unbelievable and can't believe I won that match," said a proud Tesni. "It was so tough after coming back from yesterday (losing a semi-final) but I am happy I put in a performance like that.

"This morning I was having so many doubts in my mind about how tired I was and I was just trying to block it out. This is the top of moment my career and I am very proud to represent Wales."
