King and Knight win squash titles

6:02 am on 1 July 2013

Top seeds Joelle King and Martin Knight have confirmed their pre-tournament title favouritism with comfortable victories in their respective finals at the North Island Squash Championships in Cambridge.

King, ranked fifth in the world, was too strong for 37th ranked Amanda Landers Murphy in the women's open final, winning 11-6, 11-5, 11-5.

Likewise, Knight was untroubled in the final of the men's open, downing second seed Christopher Lloyd 11-3, 11-1, 11-5.

Neither of the two top seeds dropped a game during the entire tournament.
