South African Tenille Swartz and Mike Corren of Australia celebrated hard-fought successes in today's finals of the NSC Super Satellite No1 at the National Squash Centre at Bukit Jalil in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

Corren, the KL-based top seed who celebrated his 34th birthday this week, battled for 65 minutes in the final to overcome New Zealander Campbell Grayson, the fifth seed, 11-7, 11-7, 10-11 (3-5), 11-7 to earn the 17th PSA Tour title of his career.
