6:14 am on 16 July 2012

The rising New Zealand squash star Megan Craig has won the Tasmanian Open in Hobart.

The 19-year-old delivered on a month of good results when she beat Welsh fourth seed Deon Saffery in straight games in the title decider, to claim her second title on the Women's Squash Association tour.

The world number 71 dominated Saffery in the final, strolling to an 11-3, 11-9, 11-3 victory, adding the Hobart title to the Caboolture Open she won in Queensland last November.

Craig's next event is the New South Wales Open in two weeks.
