Aron Sherriff gunned
down England's Gra-
ham Shadwell to cap-
ture the $125,000 Australian Open
Having last pulled on the green
and gold in 2008, Sherriff fired
an ominous warning shot to the
national selectors as he registered
a 9-8, 7-7 victory.
In the women's final, former
Scottish superstar Joyce Lindores
wound back the clock as she
accounted for Australian squad
member Julie Keegan.
As the only player in history to
boast a world championship across
all disciplines, Lindores, 65, who is
now based in Victoria, capped off
a stunning week as she posted a
10-6, 11-2 win.
Having dropped just one set
on his road to the final, Sherriff,
24, was a short-priced favourite
entering the championship decider.
But he was pushed to the limit
by Shadwell, who will represent
England later this year at the Delhi
Despite his many accolades,
which includes coming within a
whisker of capturing the game's
biggest title at the 2008 World
Championships, Sherriff ranked the
victory as the biggest moment of
his young career.
"Being a proud Australian this
is definitely number one," Sher-
"It's the blue-ribbon event of
the year ... just awesome."
In the women's final, Keegan
was eye balling history, hoping
to become the first player to
capture two singles crowns after
her triumph in 2006, but it was
not to be.
With Lindores bowling superbly,
the five-time Commonwealth Games
representative became the third
international to claim victory in
the final week, following in the
footsteps of world number one
Val Smith and her New Zealand
teammates Clare McCaul and Jan
Khan, as well as England's Merv
King and Stuart Airey in the
"It's a great thing for me at my
age to come here and win this,"
"I was in a few tricky messes
over the journey, but played well
from there and came back."
In the men's triples, Pine Riv-
ers' Paul Jopson teamed with
Queensland teenagers Ben Twist
and Kurt Brown to record a 2-14,
13-4, 7-0 win over NSW qualifiers
