Hedrick Ends Corren Run In Adelaide

Australia's Rex Hedrick ended Mike Corren's recent dominance of the Australian Squash Tour to win the South Australian Open in Adelaide in a closely-fought final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 event at the Revive Fitness Centre in Plympton Park.

Hedrick beat the experienced Corren 12-10, 5-11, 15-13, 11-3, his first win over the experienced South Australian in nine attempts.

Corren, 38, from Sydney, had won the past four tournaments on the Australian tour and was unbeaten in 21 matches heading into the final.

"I felt like I was getting a bit closer the last three of four times I played him, but then again he beat me three-love last week (in the final of the Barossa Valley Open)," said 23-year-old Hedrick, the top seed.

Corren looked in control when he took leads in the first and third games, only for Hedrick to claw his way back and win both games in tie-breaks.

"I got the third, which was crucial and then the fourth went pretty quickly," he said.

"I started to get my length and I was working him and waiting for something to happen. I think we were both waiting for the other to make a mistake, but I had a bit of luck at key moments."

Hedrick, who is a full scholarship holder with the Australian Institute of Sport, now heads home to Melbourne to prepare for the Victorian Open in two weeks time.
