In a surprise final of the Women's Squash Hillegom Flowerbulb Open, third seed Karen Kronemeyer defeated England's Vicky Hynes to keep the WISPA World Tour title in its second year at Squash Hillegom, in the Netherlands city of Hillegom, in Dutch hands.


The former Australian got off to a good start against Hynes, taking the first game 9-4. However, the sixth seed from England fought back to level the match. From that point onwards, 26-year-old Kronemeyer started controlling the T, racing to a 2/1 lead and match ball in the fourth at 8-2.

Hynes was not to be denied, however. The 26-year-old former British Junior champion from Birmingham staged a mini comeback to come within two points of her opponent - saving four match balls in the process. The third seeded Dutch girl finally capitalised on her fifth attempt to close out the match, to win 9-4, 3-9, 9-3, 9-6 in 44 minutes - much to the delight of the vocal home crowd.


"A successful tournament ended with a worthy final and a great champion!" said tournament organiser Tommy Berden.

The victory stretched Kronemeyer's unbeaten run on the WISPA World Tour to eight matches and two tournaments - and also keeps the trophy in Dutch hands after Annelize Naude won the inaugural event in 2006. A month ago, Kronemeyer also proved the strongest during the Didacticum Rotterdam Open 2007.

Hynes' appearance in the Tour final marked her first since winning the Carcassone City Open in France in 2001.
