Boswell Hits 20 In London

Australian Stewart Boswell marked up his 20th title on the PSA World Tour after winning the $20,000 Coronation London Open Squash Championship in the English capital.

Boswell, a 32-year-old former world No4 from Canberra, reached the final of the event in its third year at the Cumberland Lawn Tennis & Squash Club without dropping a game.

And the top seed, now based in Manchester with his wife and former England international Vicky Botwright, continued his straight games run by despatching England’s second seed Jonathan Kemp, the defending champion, 11-3, 12-10, 11-5.

While Kemp will be disappointed by the defeat, the 29-year-old world No27 from Halifax will be pleased with his return to form only four months after undergoing hip surgery.

Boswell, the world No19, becomes the seventh member of a distinguished group of current PSA players who boast 20 titles or more – headed by fellow Australian Mike Corren (32) and including his Commonwealth Games Doubles partnerDavid Palmer and Egypt’s Amr Shabana on 26; France’s Thierry Lincou and Spaniard Borja Golan with 22; and Canadian Shahier Razik, also on 20.

Final:
[1] Stewart Boswell (AUS) bt [2] Jonathan Kemp (ENG) 11-3, 12-10, 11-5 (29m)
