Australian  Lisa Camilleri marked significant milestones in her career in  (Sunday) final of the Tasmanian Open Squash Championships in Hobart –  Camilleri clinching her fifth WISPA World Tour title in a row.

In the women's final, second seed Camilleri downed top-seeded Malaysian Sharon Wee in five games. The Queenslander had to come from 2/1 down in the decider to outlast the Malaysian 11-7, 10-12, 7-11, 11-5, 11-6 and claim her 11th title on the Women’s International Squash Players’ Association Tour.

Camilleri, the world number 39, and the 34th ranked Wee are separated by only five places on the WISPA rankings and they were evenly matched throughout.

After losing the first game Wee came back to win the next two, only for Camilleri to regroup and take the match into a decider.

“That last game was close,” Camilleri said. “It was 5-5, then 6-6, but then Sharon seemed to fall into a bit of a hole – but it was a pretty exciting match.”


The 27-year-old from Tully in North Queensland has now won all five tournaments on the 2010 Australian Squash Tour so far.

She plays the NSW Classic in Sydney later this week before having a week off ahead of the Queensland Open in Rockhampton.

She then has another week off before the Australian Open in Canberra beginning on August 10.

She admitted that she was beginning to feel the strain of playing so much squash over the past two months.



“I’m getting a little tired – it’s been a tough week,” Camilleri said.
