Overview

Men's Event

Top seed Zac Alexander secured his third successive PSA World Tour title with a straight games victory over Joshua Larkin in the final of the Queensland Open, PSA M5 event.

Alexander overcame fellow Australian Rhys Dowling in the pair’s semi-final encounter while Larkin swept past Adam Murrills to reach the final and set up a repeat of the previous week’s Mackay Open final in which Alexander triumphed.

The World No.91 was in effervescent form throughout the encounter and started brilliantly, opening up the court with a number of deep drives to go two games ahead.

Larkin imposed himself on the match more in the third and pushed Alexander all the way but there was no stopping the Brisbane-born 26-year-old from recording an 11-7, 11-5, 11-9 triumph to ensure a third PSA World Tour title on the bounce, the second time he has achieved such a feat in his career.

The victory over Larkin brings about Alexander’s 17th PSA World Tour crown and extends his unbeaten run to 15 matches.

Result – Final: Queensland Open 2015
[1] Zac Alexander (AUS) bt [2] Joshua Larkin (AUS) 3-0: 11-7, 11-5, 11-9 (37m)

Women's Event

Number two seed Sarah Cardwell overcame fellow Australian Lisa Camilleri in the final of the Queensland Open, PSA W5 tournament to capture the title on home soil.

World No.66 Cardwell downed South Africa’s Cheyna Tucker in the previous round while Camilleri came through an almighty 3-2 victory over Tong Tsz-Wing to reach her first PSA World Tour final of the year.

Cardwell, appearing in her second successive PSA World Tour final after her defeat in the Mackay Open final a week previously, managed to edge a hard-fought first game but Camilleri brought the match level after winning the second 12-10 on the tie-break.

A resurgent Cardwell swung the momentum back in her favour with an 11-4 victory in game three, using her speed around court to open up opportunities for herself to attack with great aplomb.

Camilleri attempted to mount a fightback but was repelled by a resolute Cardwell who managed to hold out impressively, securing an 11-8, 10-12, 11-4, 11-8 triumph to bring an end to a run of six defeats from as many finals.

Result – Final: Queensland Open 2015
[2] Sarah Cardwell (AUS) bt [4] Lisa Camilleri (AUS) 3-1: 11-8, 10-12, 11-4, 11-9 (42m)
