Nunn Achieves 2104 Goal At New South Wales Open

Australian Christine Nunn achieved the goal she set herself at the beginning of the year by claiming the Women's New South Wales Open title - and thereby winning the first WSA World Tour title of her career!

The Canberra-born 23-year-old is reaping the rewards of a 2013 move to Melbourne, where she is now coached by former world No1 Sarah Fitz-Gerald.

Nunn, seeded four in the WSA Tour 5 event at Thornleigh Squash Centre in Sydney, made her breakthrough in the semi-finals where she ousted second-seeded New Zealander Kylie Lindsay in straight games.

Now in the second Tour final of her career, Nunn faced Coline Aumard - the No3 seed from France who also produced a stunning semi-final upset to remove Australia's top seed Lisa Camilleri.

World No65 Nunn shared the first two games with her 25-year-old final opponent, ranked 11 places higher - but the home star took control thereafter before closing out the match 11-9, 8-11, 11-2, 11-5 to clinch her maiden Tour title.
