Australia’s Donna Urquhart won her first title on the women’s professional squash tour since April last year when she beat Danish number one Line Hansen in straight games to win the Crocodile Challenge Cup in Hong Kong on Sunday.
Urquhart was in total control throughout as she disposed of Hansen 11-6, 11-8, 11-6 in an impressive display.
The 25-year-old has been in great form of late, including a first ever win over fellow Australian Rachael Grinham at last month’s Australian Open.
She followed that up by reaching the quarter-finals of the Matamata Open in New Zealand the following week.
Urquhart went into the Hong Kong tournament as firm favourite and didn’t disappoint, dropping only one game on her way to her seventh career title.
She now has a week’s break before the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, where she will play Czech Lucie Fialova in the first round.
