Biography

Enora Villard is also part of the French contingent in the top 50 of the world rankings.

 

She made her Tour debut in 2011 but had to wait almost five years to even reach the quarter-finals of an event, which she did at the Sekisui Open in 2016. After that, the last eight appearances followed one another.

 

She reached her first final a year later, but lost to Elani Landman in The Masters School Open final in New York. She also finished second in the Val de Marne that year before taking her first Tour victory in 2018, seven years after her debut. Villard won the first event of the Malaysian Squash Tour, in his first appearance of the calendar year.

 

Following this victory, she began to climb the world rankings and played in the Women's World Championships for the first time in Chicago in 2018-2019. Later that year, she scored her second victory by winning the Open International des Volcans.

 

Villard has also made the last eight of the Cannon Kirk Irish Squash Open, Annecy Rose Open, Edinburgh Sports Club Open, Monte Carlo Squash Classic and the Nash Cup, all major Challenger Tour events.

 

She broke into the top 50 of the world rankings in the summer of 2020, and her first event of 2021 saw her reach the PSA Squash95 semi-finals in Paris. She reached the same stage of the Challenger PSA Le Havre later that month, before competing in back-to-back finals. Villard lost in the Swiss Open final, but managed to clinch her third PSA Tour crown with a victory at the Pretzels Open, beating Hungarian No. 1 Hannah Chukwu in the final.

 

The Frenchwoman then qualified for the second round of a Platinum event for the first time, securing that mark at the El Gouna International Squash Open. She then ended her year with a round of 16 result at the Czech Republic Open and a quarter-final at the Sportwerk Women's Open.

 

Villard started 2022 with a round of 16 finish at the Cleveland Classic, before also taking part in this leg of the Karachi Squash Championships. A quarter-final was held on home soil at the Annecy Rose Open, before ending the season with a semi-final result at the RMCLUB Women's Open presented by Expression Networks.

 

The Frenchwoman then started the 2022-2023 season at home at the French Open Squash, qualifying for the round of 16. She then ended the year doing the same Grasshopper Cup leg, losing to eventual runner-up Hania El Hammamy.

Word from Philippe Signoret

​​After an appearance in the World Top 40, Enora stabilized in the Top 50. The Frenchwoman needs confidence to achieve good performances, like after her great victory against the top 20 in the world in December 2022
