New Zealand No 2 Campbell Grayson has won his fifth PSA world squash tour title, beating Australian Zac Alexander in the Saskatoon Boast Open final in Canada.

Second seed Grayson beat the top seed, who at No 44 is one place higher than the New Zealander in the world rankings, in five games to claim top prize in the $15,000 tournament.

The 11-5, 7-11, 12-10, 3-11, 11-9 victory, completed in 94 minutes, marks the 26-year-old from Auckland's fifth career tour title and is his second this year, after winning the Victoria Open in July.

Meanwhile, the three New Zealand women have been dealt a tough draw for the Hong Kong Open, which starts tomorrow.

Kiwi No 1 Joelle King is unseeded - the seedings were done before her leap to No 5 in the world rankings - and will have to face second seed and world No 3 Laura Massaro from England in the second round, provided the New Zealander gets past French qualifier Coline Aumard.

At the top of the draw, Kiwi qualifier Kylie Lindsay faces local Joey Chan in the first round but victory would set up a daunting date with Malaysia's world No 1 Nicol David, while Amanda Landers-Murphy, who is also a qualifier, plays fifth seed Madeline Perry of Ireland, the world No 10, in the first round.
