Nunn And Kumar Win Tasmanian Open

Men's Event

Kush Kumar lifted his maiden PSA World Tour title after a superb 3-0 victory over Jaymie Haycocks in the final of the City of Devenport Tasmanian Open, PSA M5 tournament.

19-year-old Kumar, who was appearing in his first ever PSA World Tour final, overcame Sean Conroy in the previous round while Haycocks battled through a difficult semi-final tie with Chris van der Salm.

Kumar began the match in the ascendancy, taking advantage of Haycocks’ tired legs after the previous day’s exploits and stormed into an early lead.

The second game was an equally one-sided affair with Haycocks’ semi-final exploits looming large over the Englishman as he struggled to cope with Kumar’s speed around court as the Indian doubled his lead.

Haycocks came back strongly in the third and the game went all the way to the wire with Kumar just edging out the encounter to secure an 11-4, 11-5, 13-11 victory.

Result – Final: City of Devenport Tasmanian Open 2015
[3] Kush Kumar (IND) bt [1] Jaymie Haycocks (ENG) 3-0: 11-4, 11-5, 13-11 (30m)

Women's Event

Christine Nunn secured her third career PSA World Tour title with a comfortable straight-games victory over number three seed Cheyna Tucker in the final of the City of Devenport Tasmanian Open, PSA W5 event.

Nunn had to fight to the death against Lisa Camilleri in the semi-final, overturning a two-game deficit to complete a mammoth comeback which delighted spectators at the Devenport Squash Club.

Tucker meanwhile upset Sarah Cardwell in her semi-final encounter, taking a 3-1 victory after dropping the opening game.

Nunn showed no signs of being tired after her titanic tussle the previous day and took the first two games comfortably after tearing away to open up big leads in both over her opponent.

After breaking Tucker’s resolve, Nunn raised her game even further to romp to victory in the third and final game and record a 11-6, 11-6, 11-2 triumph over the South African.

Result – Final: City of Devenport Tasmanian Open 2015
[1] Christine Nunn (AUS) bt [3] Cheyna Tucker (RSA) 3-0: 11-6, 11-6, 11-2 (34m)
