Waters takes New South Wales Open title


South Africa's number one Siyoli Waters justified her top seeding at the New South Wales Open with a four game win over second seed Sarah Cardwell in the final.

Waters didn't have an easy route to the final, requiring four games and tie breaks to finish off Tamika Saxby and compatriot Milnay Louw in the quarter final and semi final respectively.

Louw had earlier taken out sixth seed Jennifer Brown and third seed Christine Nunn.

Cardwell eased through to the semi final before facing a resurgent Lisa Camilleri, who has returned to the tour in recent months after more than 18 months sidelined with injury. Cardwell took a two game lead before Camilleri retired through injury.

Cardwell, who was aiming for her second WSA title, came out of the blocks firing and surprised Waters to take the first game 11-2. Waters stepped up a gear at the start of the second game and from then on was always in control, taking the next three games 11-5, 11-2, 11-5.

A sixth WSA title for Waters and a third title in 2013. Waters joins Amanda Sobhy and Sarah-Jane Perry as the only players with three titles in 2013 so far. Waters will aim for a tour leading fourth WSA title of 2013 at the North Coast Open this week.
