local star Misaki Kobayashi emerged victorious in the Japan Pro Kansai Squash Open in the first year of a joint men’s and women’s event at the XIST Sports Club in Wakayama, Japan.


It was an all-Japan final that brought the maiden women’s $4,000 WISPA World Tour event to a climax. 


While top-seeded Tokyo-born Misaki Kobayashi reached the second Tour final of her career without dropping a game, her experienced opponent Chinatsu Matsui, the No2 seed, battled for five games in her semi-final against Hong Kong’s fourth seed Liu Tsz-Ling before surviving in 52 minutes.


But 20-year-old Kobayashi maintained her straight games run in the event by recording her first Tour triumph over her 33-year-old compatriot, beating Matsui 11-4, 11-9, 11-7 in just 21 minutes to earn the second title of her short career.
