Australian Lisa Camilleri says she is ready for her next challenge after defeating fellow countrywoman Sarah Cardwell in the final of the Women's Westerfolds JDP Open, a WISPA World Tour 4 squash event at the Westerfolds Sports Centre in Melbourne.

The 28-year-old from Queensland stamped her authority on the final with an 11-1, 11-3, 11-7 win to take out her 17th title on the WISPA tour and her second in a fortnight.

Top seed Camilleri, who is now based at the Westerfolds club, was pushed hard in Saturday's semi-final win over fourth seed Maggy Marshall, but was always in charge against Cardwell, the third seed.

"I played a lot better today than yesterday," Camilleri said. "I knew I just had to focus from the start.

"It's my home club so it was hard to get it into my head that it was a professional tournament and not just a game at club level.

"So I was a lot more focused today - I volleyed well and kept the pressure on her."

Camilleri now heads to Hong Kong and India for two tournaments and said she was keen to play against some higher-ranked women.

Ironically she has been drawn to play Cardwell in the first round of the Hong Kong tournament, ahead of a probable semi-final against world number 16 Donna Urquhart.

"It will be good to play girls who are ranked higher than me," she said.

"I've been playing a lot of girls ranked in the 50s and 60s, so to player higher ranked girls will be a good test."
