Corren Charges To Title No 49

Just seven days after making history by becoming the oldest player ever to win a
PSA World Tour title, 40-year-old Australian Mike Corren charged through to a second successive title triumph when he edged out Hong Kong's Tsz Fung Yip in the final of the NT Open, the PSA Challenger 5 squash event at Alice Springs Squash Centre in Alice Springs, Australia.
After being taken the full distance by unseeded New Zealander
Chris van der Salm in the second round, the heroic South Australian downed his next two opponents in straight games to reach the 71st Tour final of his career.
For the second time in a week, Hong Kong's No.3 seed
Tsz Fung Yip upset the event favourite Jan Koukal in the semi-finals to set up a surprise final showdown with Corren.
And despite the 72-minute ordeal a few hours earlier, 20-year-old Yip battled with the veteran Australian for almost an hour before Corren finally emerged victorious 11-8, 11-9, 9-11, 14-12.
"Each tournament experience throws up something different and at no point this week did I think I could win this event," said Corren after his 59-minute victory.  "I couldn't practise during the week due to a barrage of chaps knees, racquets and elbows from the weekend before!
"I just tried to stick to that old maxim 'if you keep getting up your opponent will tire of hitting you'!
"Yip was phenomenal though, his match against Jan in the morning was brutal and to come up like he did was quite staggering. I can't credit him enough as, whilst he has all the skills and physical attributes today, he also showed a massive amount of ticker!"
Corren's latest win brings his Tour title haul to 49 equalling the career-long achievement of Britain's former world number one
Peter Nicol.
