World No.31 Paul Coll and World No.37 Millie Tomlinson have been named as the PSA Players of the Month for June after both players displayed some of their best form to lift silverware throughout a superb month of action.
Coll has been in fine fettle over the past few weeks and completed an incredible hat-trick of PSA World Tour titles in his native New Zealand, in addition to building up a 12-match unbeaten streak which began at the Fitzherbert Rowe Lawyers New Zealand PSA Classic where he defeated Australia’s Rex Hedrick in the final.
A week later, Coll headed to the Squashways Christchurch Open and maintained his sublime form as he romped to victory without even dropping a game, culminating in a 3-0 triumph over England’s Angus Gillams to capture his 10th PSA World Tour crown.
The 24-year-old’s hot streak showed no signs of abating in the ILT – Community Trust NZ Southern Open Invercargill Open towards the end of the month as he came up against Tsz Fung Yip of Hong Kong in the showpiece finale. Coll, who became a viral sensation in March for his ‘superman’ exploits at the Canary Wharf Classic, quickly went two games ahead and fended off late pressure from his opponent to close out the victory in four – lifting his third straight PSA World Tour title in the process.

Meanwhile, Tomlinson has also extended her unbeaten run to 12 matches – a streak that stretches back to April – after prevailing in the Harrow Ukrainian Squash Cup in Ukraine.
The 24-year-old from Derby was irrepressible and put Ineta Mackevica, Hana Moataz, Tinne Gilis and Anna Klimundova to the sword to become the first woman to win four PSA World Tour titles in 2016.
Tomlinson’s superb run has even seen her fail to drop a single game since March’s Allam British Open – meaning that she has now won 36 consecutive games in a row.
