ACT OPEN (Women) 2012
 

Lindsay Wins Fourth WSA Title In Canberra

Lindsay Wins Fourth WSA Title In Canberra
 
Kylie Lindsay wins her fourth WSA title after beating Melody Francis in the $5K ACT Open in Canberra, Australia.

The New Zealand international fought her way past a number of Australian hopefuls on her way to the final, and was the only non-Australian competitor to make it past the second round. 

Lindsay beat Selena Shaikh in round two having receiving a bye through the first round.  The No2 seed then had a close battle with No5 seed Christine Nunn, which she closed out in four games. After a close first game, Lindsay dispatched fourth seed Tamika Saxby in the semi-final to set up the final against top seed Melody Francis. 

Like her opponent, Francis had only dropped one game on her way to the final, but with the match tied at one-game-all, it was the lower seed who proved to be the sharper of the pair and closed out the win over the higher ranked player.
