Kitchen Powers To North Shore Title

24 Jun 2007

New Zealand's Shelley Kitchen earned a stunning victory in today's final of the Women's North Shore Open to claim her eighth WISPA World Tour at North Shore SC in Takapuna, New Zealand.

The world number 13 demolished second-seeded fellow kiwi Louise Crome in the title decider, romping to a 9-2, 9-2, 9-1 victory inside 20 minutes.

The win will go some way towards making amends for Kitchen's surprise defeat to Australian Kasey Brown in the final of the Central Open a week ago.
