Donna's got the crocodile smile

YAMBA'S Donna Urquhart won her first title on the women's professional squash tour since April last year when she beat Danish number one Line Hansen in straight games to win the Crocodile Challenge Cup in Hong Kong on Sunday night.

Urquhart was in control throughout as she disposed of Hansen 11-6, 11-8, 11-6 in an impressive display.

The 25-year-old has been in great form recently, including a first win over fellow Australian Rachael Grinham at last month's Australian Open.

She followed that up by reaching the quarter-finals of the Matamata Open in New Zealand the following week.

Urquhart went into the Hong Kong tournament as favourite and didn't disappoint, dropping only one game on her way to her seventh career title.

She has a week's break before the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, where she will play Czech Lucie Fialova in the first round.

In the men's final, Egyptian Mazen Sabry disappointed local fans when he came from behind to beat Hong Kong's Max Lee 11-13, 6-11, 11-9, 11-4, 11-3.
