Good results for top seeds at NZ Squash Champs

8:16 am on 22 August 2009

All of the main seeds have moved safely through the first two rounds of the New Zealand Squash Championships at SquashGym in Palmerston North.

In the men's draw top seed Kashif Shuja of Auckland, chasing his fifth title in six years, was untroubled in both matches, as was second seed and local hope Josh Greenfield who enjoyed two good wins.

All the key seeds in the women's draw had effortless days with top seed and world No 16 Jaclyn Hawkes dropping just 17 points in two matches.

The second seed Joelle King of Hamilton was on court for only 23 minutes in her two rounds, and third seed Tamsyn Leevey from Wellington was equally impressive with two dominant wins.

The quarterfinals are tomorrow morning and semifinals in the evening with finals on Sunday.
