South Africa’s leading squash player Alex Fuller was crowned the Growthpoint SA Nationals champion after the final at the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town on Sunday, 11 September 2022.

Showing her attacking instincts, Cape Town’s Fuller claimed her fourth title overall, regaining the crown she took in 2020 with a 3-0 win over second seed and defending women’s champion, Lizelle Muller.

Fuller, ranked 30 in the world, showed her experience gained from campaigning on the professional circuit as she outplayed her 37-year-old rival.

“It is always special to win the national title and it’s been a great experience playing here,” the 29-year-old WP star said.

“It’s a brilliant set-up here and to have all the people watching has been awesome.”

Swift to capitalise on anything loose, Fuller said her attacking approach had been developed on the pro tour.

“Putting yourself in an attacking position is something you simply have to work on because the world tour demands it,” she said.

“The game is very physical at that level and the girls are so strong that the deeper you are in the court the more trouble you will face,” Fuller concluded.
