Perry and Alexander Claim NT Open Titles

Former World No.3 Madeline Perry made a winning return to the PSA World Tour after retiring from professional squash in April of last year by winning the Squash NT Open, PSA W5 tournament - while home hero Zac Alexander claimed the Men’s title in Darwin.

Perry, whose final match as a member of the Tour yielded the Irish Open crown just over a year ago, entered the NT Open as a local and put in a number of sensational performances to reach the final, with second seed Sarah Cardwell, Tamika Saxby and Lakeesha Rarere all being put to the sword by the 39-year-old.

The 15-time Irish Nationals winner came up against Australia’s Lisa Camilleri in the final after the World No.80 had overturned a 2-1 deficit against Samantha Foyle in the previous round.

Perry was in superb form throughout the encounter and powered to an 11-5, 11-3, 11-2 victory to bring the curtain down on a sparkling return to action.

Despite her success, Perry, who took up the post of Head Professional at the East Coast Squash Academy in February, admits that she has no plans of returning to the PSA World Tour full time.

“It was very strange to be back playing, but it was nice to play with no pressure and feel relaxed and just enjoying playing matches,” said Perry.

“My plans are just to continue with coaching. I may play the odd event in the future as I still enjoy playing, but I have no plans to train full time again or play a lot competitively.”

Meanwhile, Alexander came through a dramatic fixture with England’s Adam Murrills to claim his fourth successive PSA World Tour title.

The former World No.36 was appearing at his first tournament of the year but showed no signs of rustiness as he stormed into a 2-0 lead.

Murrills rallied and eventually levelled, but Alexander took the deciding fifth game to close out the win and capture the 18th PSA World Tour of his career.
 
Six Australians Advance To Last Eight

#PSAWorldTour

There will be representation from six Australians in the quarter-final stage of the Squash NT Open, PSA M5 tournament after top seed Zac Alexander led his compatriots safely through their first round encounters.

Alexander, who was a beaten finalist in last year’s tournament, was in fine fettle throughout a dominant three-game salvo and stormed to an 11-5, 11-9, 11-4 triumph to secure his place in the quarter-final.

The World No.107 will meet Rohan Toole for a place in the showpiece finale after the number seven seed ousted Jordan Till.

Australian qualifier Darcy Evans is one win away from reaching a maiden PSA World Tour semi-final after he upset Thomas Calvert, despite the 253 places between the pair in the World Rankings. Second seed Adam Murrills is one of the few non-Australians to have made it to the quarter-final and he will take on Evans after sweeping past Mike Corren.

Meanwhile, Rhys Dowling overcame William Curtis to set up a meeting with Joseph White in the next round after his opponent, Courtney West, retired through injury.

David Clegg defeated wildcard Jason van der Walt and he will line up against Mithran Selvaratnam in the other last eight fixture, with Selvaratnam seeing off Solayman Nowrozi to progress.
