King fought to the end, saving four match points in the fifth game, but after 74 minutes Perry eventually prevailed 5-11 13-11 13-11 7-11 13-11.

The 32-year-old New Zealander now awaits a revistalised PSA schedule in the new year.

Meanwhile the tournament now gets ready for the men’s event, where new world No 4 Paul Coll will be the fourth seed.
