Hitachi Queensland Open in straight games at the Sandgate Squash Centre
in Brisbane, Australia.
The top seed from
Melbourne was able to absorb everything Charlton tried in the climax of the

rally up and down the wall a little bit," he said.
"He played the type of
game I expected, although I thought he would try and take me in short a little
