Adnan & Hawkes Win NSC Tour Titles In Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia's Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan and New Zealander Jaclyn Hawkes won the NSC Tour event titles in Kuala Lumpur after contrasting finals today (Wednesday) at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in the Malaysian capital.

Adnan, the fourth seed in the men's
NSC 1 Star No1 championship, faced Bilal Zaman - the No6 seed from Pakistan who strolled through to the final after receiving a walkover from his injured opponent Mike Corren in the semi-finals.

And 23-year-old Zaman, from Peshawar, took a 2/1 lead against home hero Adnan as a significant upset looked on the cards.

But the KL-based 21-year-old fought back to win 11-6, 10-11 (1-3), 5-11, 11-3, 11-9 in 56 minutes to earn the third PSA Tour title of his career - and the third in his home city Kuala Lumpur.

The final of the Women's
NSC Tour 12 No1 event was a more straightforward affair in which top seed Hawkes took on Joshna Chinappa, the sixth seed from India.

Hawkes, the world number 18 from Auckland, romped to a two-game lead before Chinappa fought back to force a tie-break in the third game.  But the Kiwi kept control and clinched a 9-1, 9-2, 10-8 win after 30 minutes.

Hawkes is celebrating her second WISPA World Tour title success - but the first since July 2005 when she won her maiden tour trophy at the South Australian Open in Adelaide

Hawkes Maintains Order In NSC Tour Events In Kuala Lumpur

Jaclyn Hawkes
became the only top seed to reach the finals of the NSC Tour events at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur - but the 25-year-old from Auckland was taken the full distance by fellow New Zealander Louise Crome in the semi-finals of the Women's NSC Tour 12 No1 in the Malaysian capital.

Crome, who arrived in Malaysia fresh from her triumph in the inaugural WISPA Vietnam Open last week, twice led in the match. But Hawkes, ranked 18 in the world, nine places higher than Crome, battled back to clinch an impressive 5-9, 9-2, 6-9, 9-4, 9-5 victory after 85 minutes.

Joshna Chinappa, runner-up to Crome in Hanoi, also toiled for five games in the other women's semi-final - but emerged triumphant against Sharon Wee, the second seed. Wee reached the semis after a straight games win over unseeded Dipika Pallikal, the 16-year-old Indian who prevailed in the first round when fifth-seeded Australian Donna Urquhart was forced to withdraw after taking the first game - suffering from a torn calf tear in her right leg.

Chinappa, the sixth seed from Chennai, fought back from 1/2 down to beat Wee 9-6, 3-9, 1-9, 9-7, 9-2.

The sixth seed will also compete in the final of the men's
NSC 1 Star No1 championship. Pakistan's Bilal Zaman upset Germany's No2 seed Simon Rosner 6-11, 11-10 (9-7), 7-11, 11-10 (3-1), 11-9 in a 65-minute marathon quarter-final - then eased straight through to the final when third-seeded opponent Mike Corren conceded the semi-final as the result of a chronic back injury.

The prospect of a surprise all-Pakistan final was thwarted by home hero Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan, the fourth seed from
Kuala Lumpur who beat unseeded Shamsul Islam Khan, from Quetta, 10-11 (0-2), 11-1, 11-4, 6-11, 11-4 in the other semi-final.
