The New Zealand No.1 and tournament top seed beat Hong Kong's Annie Au 5-11 11-8 11-3 11-9 to win the Macau Open in China.

World No.11 King took just over half an hour to win a 10th Professional Squash Association crown and clinch her second Macau title.

King's prospects were boosted by most of the world's leading players contesting a concurrent tournament in Cairo.

The 27-year-old is gradually returning to her best after rupturing an Achilles tendon two years ago, which sidelined her for nine months.
