Kiwi Double For Grayson & King On North Island

Top-seeded New Zealanders Campbell Grayson and Joelle King swept to their respective titles at the ASB Bank North Island Squash Championships in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Grayson proved too sharp for second-seeded fellow kiwi Graeme Wilson in the final of the men's PSA Tour Satellite event, romping to an 11-3, 11-7, 11-9 victory.

It was Grayson's first PSA Tour title, capping off a superb six weeks that has seen the 22-year-old from Auckland climb to a career high number 94 in the world rankings.

Joelle King was even more convincing in claiming her first title on the women's WISPA World Tour, crushing third seed Jackie Laurenson 9-0, 9-0, 9-2. Like Grayson, 19-year-old King attained a career-high ranking on the June list, climbing to number 61 in the world.

Laurenson, 21, from Auckland, was appearing in her maiden Tour final.
