Canadian Samantha Cornett claimed her second title on the women's professional squash tour after beating Korea's Ahn Eun Chan in four tight games to win the Tasmanian Open in Hobart on Sunday.

Cornett, who lost to the Korean in the second round of the Victorian Open last week, played some superb squash to win the final 11-6 11-7 9-11 11-8 and add the Hobart crown to the title she won in Guatemala in May.

Hong Kong's Leo Au made it two wins in a row when he added the men's title to his Victorian Open crown with an 11-6 11-8 11-4 win over Bradley Hindle of Malta.

Au came from behind in the first two games to overcome Australian-born Hindle.
