South Australia Open 2012
12-17 June, Adelaide, Australia, $5k
16-Jun, Finals:
Hedrick ends Corren dominance,
Davies falls to top seed

Andrew Dent reports

Melbourne’s Rex Hedrick ended Mike Corren’s recent dominance of the Australian Squash Tour to win the South Australian Open in Adelaide in a closely fought final on Sunday.

Hedrick beat the experienced Corren 12-10, 5-11, 15-13, 11-3, his first win over the experienced South Australian in nine attempts.

Corren had won the past four tournaments on the Australian tour and was unbeaten in 21 matches heading into Sunday’s final.

“I felt like I was getting a bit closer the last three or four times I played him, but then again he beat me three-love last week (in the final of the Barossa Valley Open),” Hedrick said.

Corren looked in control when he took leads in the first and third games, only for Hedrick to claw his way back and win both games in extra points.

“I got the third, which was crucial and then the fourth went pretty quickly,” he said.

“I started to get my length and I was working him and waiting for something to happen. I think we were both waiting for the other to make a mistake, but I had a bit of luck at key moments.”

Hedrick, who is a full scholarship holder with the Australian Institute of Sport, now heads home to Melbourne to prepare for the Victorian Open in two weeks time.

Earlier, top seeded New Zealander Amanda Landers-Murphy ended the giant-killing run of Queenslander Samantha Davies to win the women’s trophy.

Davies had beaten second seed Milou van der Heijden and fourth ranked Tamika Saxby on her way to the final but was unable to continue the run of upsets against Landers-Murphy.

The 21-year-old Kiwi, who finished runner-up at the WA Open in Perth and at last week’s Barossa Valley Open, was too steady for the shot-making Davies, winning 12-10, 11-7, 11-8 to claim her second Women’s Squash Association title.

15-Jun, Semis:
Davies run continues,
Hedrick and Corren to meet again ...

Semi-finals of the $5k South Australian Open in Adelaide saw seventh seed Samantha Davies pull off a second successive upset as she beat fourth seeded Tamika Saxby in straight games, setting up another trans-Tasman clash in the final, this time with top seed Amanda Landers-Murphy who beat fellow Kiwi Megan Craig, also in straight games.

The men's final will be a repeat of last week's all-Aussie Barossa Valley climax between Rex Hedrick and Mike Corren, which native South Australian Corren won to collect his fourth PSA title in a row. In the semi-finals both beat English opposition, Hedrick beating Tom Pashley in three, Corren recovering from dropping the first game to defeat Lewis Walters in four.

15-Jun, Quarters:
Second seeds sunk in
South Australia Shocks ...

The quarter-finals of the South Australia Open in Adelaide saw the demise of the second seeds in the men's and women's events.

England's Tom Pashley put paid to Kiwi Kashif Shuja's hopes of retaining his title, and now faces man of the moment Mike Corren, who is aiming for five PSA titles in a row.

The other semi-final is also an Anglo-Aussie affair, with top seed Rex Hedrick meeting Lewis Walters.

In the women's draw Samantha Davies beat second seed Milou Van Der Heijden in straight games and now meets fellow-Aussie Tamika Saxby for a place in the final, while top seed Amanda Landers-Murphy faces an all-New Zealand clash with Megan Craig, who ousted third seed Sarah Cardwell in straight games.

Corren aims for five on home turf

South Australian Mike Corren will be aiming for an amazing fifth PSA title in a row - and a 42nd overall - as he sets out to regain the South Australian title in Adelaide next week.

Having cleaned up in the NT Open, the Perth International, the Golden Open and the Barossa Valley Open, Corren comes back to Adelaide on an 18-match unbeaten streak.

It won't be easy for the 2010 champion, who is seeded third behind Rex Hedrick - who Corren beat in straight games in the Barossa final - and Kiwi defending champion Kashif Shuja.

The end of last year's event was brutal for Corren - after beating Hedrick 3-2 in an 89-minute semi-final, Shuja scraped home 12-10 in the fifth in the 75-minute final. This draw promises more of the same, albeit in reverse order.

Match Points ...
