Captures Womenís Mackay Open Title
Malaysiaís Vanessa Chu secured her third PSA World Tour title of
2015 with a 3-1 triumph over home favourite and number one seed
Sarah Cardwell in the final of the Mackay Open, PSA W5 tournament.
The number two seed failed to drop a game as she stormed into the
final, seeing off Englandís Anna Kimberley in the previous round.
Cardwell, who reached the final of this event last year, was
similarly impressive, although she did face resistance from Tong Tsz-Wing
in the semi-final where she eventually prevailed in four games.
Chu adapted well to the warm conditions on court but was still
pegged close by Cardwell in an opening game that went all the way to
a tie-break. After taking the first game by a 12-10 scoreline, Chu

Chu came out all guns blazing though in the fourth, working Cardwell
into all four corners of the court to claim a gritty 12-10, 11-8,
9-11, 11-6 triumph
