Tasmanian Open 2011
15-17 Jul, Hobart, Tasmania, $5k+$4k


17-Apr:
Cornett takes womens title,
Au beats Hindle in men's title decider ...

Canada’s Samantha Cornett claimed her second title on the women’s professional squash tour when she beat Korea’s Ahn Eun Chan in four tight games to win the Tasmanian Open in Hobart on Sunday.

Cornett, who lost to the Korean in the second round of the Victorian Open last week, played some superb squash to win the final 11-6, 11-7, 9-11, 11-8 and add the Hobart crown to the title she won in Guatemala in May.

The 20-year-old Cornett has been training under former world number one Jonathon Power at the National Squash Academy in Toronto for the past 12 months and said the hard work was starting to pay off.

“I feel so good – this whole week I’ve been playing really, really well,” she said after the final. It’s so encouraging to have these kind of results.

“I’ve played on the tour for five years, but only seriously for the last two years, but I’ve never been able to win the matches I wasn’t supposed to.

“I’ve beaten players I was expected to, but not beaten those ranked higher than me, so it is nice to start winning those matches now.”

Cornett, who ousted top seed Kylie Lindsay of New Zealand in the semi-finals, changed her game plan against Ahn after her loss in Melbourne last week.

“Everyone told me to play slow against her, but that obviously didn’t work in Melbourne, so I changed up and found playing fast works a bit better,” she said.

She now has a week off before playing the New South Wales Open in Sydney.

Later Hong Kong’s Leo Au made it two wins in a row when he added the Tasmanian Open title to his Victorian Open crown with an 11-6, 11-8, 11-4 win over Bradley Hindle of Malta, coming from behind in the first two games to overcome Australian-born top seed.

“I should have won the first two games and then in the third he got away from me, I think I was a bit deflated,” Hindle said.

“But I’m not too disappointed. It was a good match – he was just a bit better than me on the day.”

16-Apr:
Stevenson last Aussie left in Hobart
Andrew Dent reports

Queensland’s Nathan Stevenson is the sole Australian left in the Tasmanian Open after international raiders caused havoc at the Eastside Squash Centre in Hobart on Saturday.

Stevenson downed Victoria’s Luke Sims in four games 11-7, 9-11, 11-4, 11-6 to move into the quarter-finals of the men’s event, where he will face fifth seeded Austrian Aqeel Rehman.

There was triple disappointment in the women’s quarter-finals, with all three Australians bowing out.

Hobart’s Maggy Marshall fell in straight games to top seeded New Zealander Kylie Lindsay 11-4, 11-4, 11-6, Brisbane’s Samantha Davies was beaten by Canadian Samantha Cornett 11-2, 12-10, 11-3 and fourth seeded Victorian Sarah Cardwell was upset by in-form Korean Ahn Eun Chan 11-8, 8-11, 15-13, 11-7.

The 21-year-old Marshall was left devastated after falling in straight games to her Kiwi rival.

“She’s very experienced and when I made a mistake or didn’t stick to my game plan she made me pay,” Marshall said.

“I had a good result against her last time I played her, taking her to five games, so to go down so quickly was very disappointing.

“She played well and I didn’t play as well as I needed to today.”

Marshall now heads to Brisbane for the Queensland Open and said despite her loss to Lindsay she was feeling optimistic about the future after finally getting over a back injury.

“I feel like I’m getting back into shape but I know I’ve got a lot more to do to take my game to the next level.”
  
Locals to try their luck in Hobart
Andrew Dent reports

Twelve local players including four juniors will try their luck against the professionals when the Tasmanian Open squash tournament gets underway in Hobart on Thursday.

The seven men will take to the court for the qualifying tournament, while five women have been granted places in the first round.

Following the success of last year’s tournament, players from 17 countries have descended on Hobart for the Open, a key stop on the Australian Squash Tour.

“It’s brilliant to have so many world class players coming this year,” Squash Tasmania’s Chris Doig said.

“The quality of this year’s field shows this tournament is now well and truly on the world squash map.

“Our local players will relish this chance to take on some of the world’s best players.”

Mark deVries,, Paul Brewtnall, Lars Becker, Jason Faulkner, Michael Brown and juniors Tom and Jack Strugnell will play in men’s qualifying.

In the women’s first round, Helen Rackham takes on Hong Kong’s Karman Siu, Gaye Mitchell also faces a Hong Kong opponent in Liu Tsz-Ling, and Melanie Dunn is up against Victorian Open runner-up Ahn Eun Chan of Korea.

Kate Lindsay has received the best draw, against Melbourne’s Vanessa Pickerd, while Claire Ward takes on Scotland’s Lisa Aitken.

Hobart’s fifth seeded Maggy Marshall has a first round bye and will face either Canberra’s Christine Nunn or Cigany Sillevis of the Netherlands in the second round.

The tournament will be held at the Eastside Squash Centre from July 14-17.
