January 24th, 2007

HEAD player Natalie Grinham of Australia captured her third consecutive Women's International Squash Players' Association title in a row with her 9-7, 9-5, 9-7, win at the Greenwich Open in Connecticut. Grinham beat the former world No. 1 Natalie Grainger of the U.S. in the final round.

Grinham won the Monte Carlo Classic in December and upset her top-seeded sister and fellow HEAD player Rachael Grinham in the semifinals of the Apawamis Open in New York last week with a 9-10, 9-1, 9-1, 10-8, victory in 57 minutes.

The Netherlands-based world No. 3 won a record three Commonwealth Games gold medals on her home soil last year. Off the court, Grinham is married to Dutch professional squash champion Tommy Berden.
