Seeds Storm Through In Women’s TOC Qualification Round One

The first round of qualification in the Women’s 2016 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions proved to be plain sailing for the event’s seeds as all ten matches went the way of the bracketed players.

Only Canadian duo Hollie Naughton and Nikki Todd, who both won 3-2, failed to secure their passage into the final round of qualification courtesy of straight-games wins to move one step closer towards a coveted place in the main draw of the prestigious PSA World Series tournament, which is offering parity in prize money between men and women for the first time in its history.
