King Triumph’s Again In Australia


New Zealander Joelle King claimed her second international squash tour titles in a week in Australia after success in the Victorian Open at Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre in Melbourne.



New Zealand’s Joelle King turned in a dominant performance to take the women’s title with an 11-8, 11-4, 11-7 win over second-seeded Australian Amelia Pittock.


Pittock, who won the Victorian Open in 2005, could not match the New Zealander, who, like Corren, added the Victorian title to the NSW Open she won last week


King has improved immensely over the last 12 months and she highlighted that rise with the ease of her win over the more experienced Pittock.


A number of the former winners of the Victorian Open women’s trophy were special guests for Sunday’s final and King said she felt honoured to win the tournament in front of players such as Vicki Cardwell, Sarah Fitz-Gerald, Margaret Zacharia and Anne Smith.


"There are some great names on the trophy," she said.  "Hopefully I can achieve some of the great things they did."
