WORLD SQUASH NEWS
RESULTS: Forbes Women's Southport Squash Open, Connecticut, USA
 Natalie Grinham (AUS) bt  Vicky Botwright (ENG) 9-1, 2-9, 9-6, 9-1
Grinham Grabs Second Title Within A Week
Just six days after claiming her maiden squash title on the WISPA World Tour,
Australian Natalie Grinham has secured her second!
The 24-year-old from Toowoomba in Queensland, winner of last week's Apawamis
Open in New York, beat England's Vicky Botwright in four games in the final
of the $11,000 Forbes Women's Southport Open in Connecticut, USA.
Top-seeded Grinham, based in Almere in the Netherlands, reached the final
after overcoming a tough test in the semi-finals where she had to fight back
from 2-0 down to shake off Welsh qualifier Tegwen Malik. Perhaps overawed by
her first appearance in a WISPA final, Botwright easily lost the opening
game, but refocused in the second to level the match.
After winning the third, the Australian world No11 raced to a 7-0 lead in the
fourth which, in the end, was too much for Botwright to close in on. Grinham
calmly converted her first match-ball to clinch a notable 9-1 2-9 9-6 9-1
victory and her second title of the year.
