REPORTS

Momen Wins Channel VAS Championships
to End Trophy Drought


World No.4 Tarek Momen has ended a four-year trophy drought after beating fellow Egyptian Ali Farag 3-2 to win the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill, PSA World Tour Gold event held in Weybridge.

Momen had been in brilliant form throughout the tournament - dispatching Cameron Pilley, Paul Coll and Diego Elias without dropping a single game - and was up against the 2017 runner-up in Farag.

Momen was also a beaten finalist at this tournament, losing to Coll in 2016, and he twice went a game behind against the World No.2 today, but fought back both times to force a decider as he played some accurate, attacking squash.

The drama inside St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club rose to a crescendo in the fifth as Momen thought he had won it after playing a winner while holding a championship ball. Farag questioned whether the ball had clipped the tin, and Momen agreed to play a let to put his title win on temporary hold.

But the 30-year-old held his nerve to close out the win on the very next point as he completed an 8-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-5, 11-9 victory to capture the fifth PSA Tour trophy of his career, and his first since the Macau Open in October 2014.

"I can’t believe it, it’s been four years since I won a title," said an emotional Momen afterwards.

"It’s the biggest of my career and I’m really proud of this moment. As for Ali, I have the utmost respect for him, he’s a really good friend of mine. We’ve been away for a month and each of us has won a title, so we should be fine going back home.

"Putting everything aside, I’m really happy with how I’ve progressed mentally over the past year and a half. I used to give up when I was really tired, now I’m much better at it. I can be exhausted, but I can still push and find other plans."
 
 Egyptian Duo Farag and Momen Reach Final

Egyptian pair Ali Farag and Tarek Momen will line up against each other in the final of the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill after respective wins over Karim Abdel Gawad and Diego Elias earlier today in Weybridge.

World No.2 Farag - who won the Oracle NetSuite Open two weeks ago - advanced to his second PSA Tour final of the season after he overcame former World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad by a 3-1 margin.

Gawad ran away with the opening game as he displayed some deft touches and outrageous winners to prevent Farag from finding his rhythm. But Farag took control in the second and third games and he closed out a 7-11, 11-5, 11-2, 11-9 victory after edging Gawad in the fourth.

“I watched his match yesterday [against Saurav Ghosal] and that was by far the best that any player has performed this season,” said Farag.

“I could see Saurav was playing really well, but Gawad was on fire and I was prepared for this. I knew that I would have to do a lot of running and would need to stay as tight as possible to stop his attacks.

“I needed to attack whenever I had an opportunity, but it was really physically tiring and demanding. I had a game with Bassim [Haidar, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Channel IT Group], the official sponsor, yesterday and he made me ready for that one and sharpened me up.”

World No.4 Momen will appear in the final of the PSA World Tour Gold event for the second time after he claimed an emphatic straight games victory against Peru’s World No.13 Diego Elias.

Momen avenged his 2016 final defeat to World No.8 Paul Coll in the previous round, with a sublime display seeing him eliminate the Kiwi without dropping a game.

And the 30-year-old looks like the man to beat in Weybridge this year after an imperious display saw him dispatch Elias by a 15-13, 11-8, 11-4 scoreline.

“He’s a very tough opponent, and if you give him an inch, he has so many varieties of shots, he can make me move a lot,” said Momen afterwards.

“I did quite a bit of running today, so I’m going to need some recovery work done. The quality of the game was so high, and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. I’m also very happy for the audience to be entertained the way they have been this week.

“I’ve been in so many finals before where I’ve had extremely tough 3-2 matches back-to-back, they’ve affected the way I was playing in the final and they hindered my performance. I was very cautious of that, and I knew that if I wanted to do well in the final then I would have to make the matches as short as possible."

Momen will look to win his first PSA Tour title since 2014 tomorrow and will meet Farag for the fifth time on the PSA Tour. The head-to-head record currently stands at two wins apiece, but Farag won the last time they played, which was in April’s El Gouna International.

The duo will contest the Channel VAS Championships final at 17:00 local time
Egyptian Masterclasses Light Up Quarter-Finals

A trio of Egyptian players will line up in the semi-finals of the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill as Ali Farag, Karim Abdel Gawad and Tarek Momen all claimed victories on day four of the PSA World Tour Gold event held in Weybridge.

World No.2 Farag booked his place in the semi-finals here for a second year running after he ended the run of home favourite Tom Richards. Richards was backed to the hilt by a partizan crowd at St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club, but Farag had too much for the Englishman today as he closed out an 11-6, 11-7, 11-8 win to reach the last four.

Farag will go up against former World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad in the semi-finals after Gawad put in a sensational performance to down World No.11 Saurav Ghosal 3-0.

"Karim and I grew up playing in the same age group and we’ve played around 40 or 50 times, plus the hundreds of times we’ve played during practice," said Farag.

"We know each other’s games quite well. It’s always fair and clean when you play with Gawad. It’s always fun when you go on court and someone is going to play their heart out, but at the same time they’re going to be very fair and clean.

"From a squash perspective, Karim showed us today that he’s back in the kind of top form that took him to World Champion. He was very sharp today, played really well and I will have to try as much as possible to stop those attacks and to attack myself."

A loss of form from Gawad over the past 18 months has seen the former World No.1 tumble down the World Rankings, but his display against Ghosal today evoked memories of the form he displayed in the early part of 2017 as he hit a feast of winners en route to an 11-6, 11-7, 11-8 victory.

“Squash is beautiful when everything goes the way you want,” Gawad said.

“Unfortunately it doesn’t happen a lot, so you have to enjoy the day everything goes into the nick and you can play a tight, basic game. Saurav is one of the best shot-makers on tour, and in order to play him today I had to make sure that I didn’t give him a lot of chances because he was going to kill me in the front corners."

Egypt’s World No.3 Tarek Momen avenged his defeat in the 2016 final to World No.8 Paul Coll, with a sublime display seeing the 30-year-old triumph in straight games.

Coll’s momentous victory over the Egyptian here two years ago was one of the key reasons behind his eventual ascent into the top 10, and he also overcame Momen in a brutal 96-minute clash at the U.S. Open last week. But Momen was irrepressible today as he controlled his shots to perfection and proved very difficult for Coll to read.

“I used the same game plan that I put together for the U.S. Open, it just worked a little bit better this time,” Momen said afterwards.

“In the U.S. Open, I thought I played the first three games really well, and I was unlucky to lose the second. I just tried as much as could not to give him that chance today. I'm very happy with how I dealt with these conditions and was able to play my game."

Peru’s Diego Elias was the only non-Egyptian to win on day four as he ended the run of giant-killer Joel Makin to set up a semi-final match against Momen.

Makin caused arguably the biggest upset in this tournament’s history when he ended World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy’s title defence in the previous round, and he tested Elias today as he took the opening game.

But Elias attacked well into all four corners off the court and he came from behind to earn his place in the semi-finals courtesy of a 10-12, 11-7, 11-7, 11-9 victory after 79 minutes of intense squash.

“I knew it was going to be really tough, he beat ElShorbagy, the World No.1, so I knew he was playing really well,” said Elias.

“I had a really good strategy against him. It didn’t work in the first game, but then it started working and he got a bit tired, so I’m happy with the way I played. I knew it was going to be a very long match, so the first thing for me was to be patient.”

Home Favourite Richards Halts Mosaad
on Day Three


World No.30 Tom Richards delighted spectators at St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club as he upset former World No.3 Omar Mosaad to reach the quarter-finals of the Channel VAS Championships, PSA World Tour Gold event earlier today.

Richards, 32, has played at St George’s Hill since he was just two years old and he claimed one of his biggest wins on the PSA Tour in recent years with a fine comeback from a game down to win 10-12, 11-7, 13-11, 11-2.

“[The result] has been coming for a few years, I felt like I’ve been playing well again over the last year and a half,” Richards said afterwards.

“I’ve been close to getting a couple of scalps, but I felt really good there. I was playing well and I feel fit and strong.

“It all comes down to that feeling when you win, that’s why you spend so many hours in rehab, in the gym and work so hard. Touch wood, I haven’t been injured for a year and a half now, and when I came back I thought I could compete with the players at my level. Now I feel that my base platform is good enough to compete with the top guys.”

Richards is rewarded with a last eight matchup against World No.2 Ali Farag, who came through a tough encounter with World No.20 Declan James.

Harvard-graduate Farag reached the final here last year and he took a step closer to the title decider after ousting James by a 13-11, 7-11, 11-7, 13-11 scoreline.

Farag, 26, was put under huge pressure by James for much of the 57-minute match and had to overturn a game ball in the opening game before he went on to lose the second. But the momentum shifted back in the Egyptian’s favour in the third and he refocused to sneak the win in four games.

“Tonight’s match is a testament to Declan’s talent, he never ceased to attack and I’m just happy to get through today,” Farag said.

“It’s never easy to back it up off the back of another tournament, especially with serious jet lag, and especially when you get to play a great player such as Declan. We’ve played twice before already, but tonight is the best he ever played against me by far. He took it to me, he was never passive and never let off for a second."

Meanwhile, former World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad booked his place in the last eight after he recovered from a game down to see off Scotland’s World No.34 Greg Lobban by a 3-1 margin on his Channel VAS Championships debut.

Gawad made a traditionally slow start as Lobban, who had already played on this court in round one, dominated the opener to go a game up for the loss of just three points. But the Egyptian came onto court a different man in the second as he found his range, and he looked considerably quicker around court over the course of the next three games.

“He made it very tough for me today and it’s always hard to play an opponent twice in a week,” said Gawad, who beat Lobban at the U.S. Open two weeks ago.

“I was trying to push myself in front a little bit. Luckily, I played some nice killing shots and I managed to find a way to win today, especially with him playing such great squash."

Gawad will line up against Indian No.1 Saurav Ghosal for a place in the semi-finals. Ghosal booked his last eight berth courtesy of a 3-0 victory over France’s Mathieu Castagnet.

Ghosal, the 32-year-old from Kolkata, was making his first appearance of the tournament after receiving a bye into round two, while Castagnet had to fight through a brutal 103-minute battle against compatriot Lucas Serme in the first round.

And Ghosal’s fresher legs made a big impact on the scoreline as he recorded an 11-5, 11-7, 11-5 victory in 42 minutes.

"I just tried to stay strong and solid," said World No.11 Ghosal.

"I took it in short, I enjoyed the court and the game, and I tried to implement the game plan we [coaches David Palmer and Malcolm Willstrop] wanted. I worked with them both in the summer, first David, then Malcolm for a month. Those two periods obviously helped, and I’m focusing now on trying to implement what we worked on."

Welshman Makin Shocks World No.1 ElShorbagy
to Reach Quarter-Finals


World No.33 Joel Makin earned the biggest victory of his career to date after he claimed a dramatic victory over World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy earlier today in Weybridge to send the defending champion out of the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill.

ElShorbagy was coming off the back of a title win at the U.S. Open last week, but the reigning World Champion was under pressure right from the off as Makin combined his typically strong retrieval skills with some fine touches at the front of the court.

After conceding the opener, ElShorbagy showed more of his usual aggression as he came back from 9-4 down in the second to force a tie-break, but it spilled over as he received a conduct stroke against him after a disagreement with a refereeing decision, which handed the game to Makin.

That moment proved pivotal as Makin doubled his lead and he fought back from three game balls down in the third to complete the win by a 12-10, 13-11, 12-10 scoreline.

“It’s massive [to beat ElShorbagy],” said Makin.

“I had a lot of belief and I knew exactly what I needed to do. I really had to be disciplined and I didn’t think about his form, just focused on the process.

“If I was going to get into the match, I had to switch it and keep getting the height. I had to be positive and my short balls were better today than they have been. I’ve been working on them for a long time, but they came together. They were three really tight games."

Makin’s reward for his shock victory is a quarter-final meeting with Peru’s Diego Elias after the World No.13 got the better of 2015 runner-up Daryl Selby, winning 11-6, 11-5, 11-5 in 40 minutes.

“I’m very happy to be here again, I haven’t started the season that well, but now I’m feeling better on court,” Elias said.

“Daryl is a super strong player and I think I did a great job beating him in three because it’s always hard. We played here last year in the same round, I knew he wanted revenge but I think I played well."

Elsewhere, World No.8 Paul Coll booked his place in the quarter-finals courtesy of a 3-0 victory over former World No.1 James Willstrop, with the New Zealander avenging his Commonwealth Games defeat to the Englishman in the process.

Coll, who shot to prominence by winning this tournament in 2016, went down 3-0 to Willstrop in the final of the Commonwealth Games singles event in April.

But he turned the tide this time around as he came from behind to win a crucial second-game tie-break, before dominating the third to close out the win in straight games.

“[The Commonwealth Games] is always in my mind, it’s one of my ultimate goals in squash, but I’m trying to block that out for another four years and trying not to dwell on that too much because it can release some negative emotions," said U.S. Open semi-finalist Coll.

“It’s always on my mind, but it’s not what I’m thinking about at all, maybe in four years when I need to light that fire again."

Coll will play World No.4 Tarek Momen next in a repeat of the 2016 final, with Momen edging Australia’s Cameron Pilley in a tight three-game battle.

The Egyptian had a 9-3 lead on their head-to-head record coming into the match and, while he was able to extend that lead, he was made to work hard for it by the World No.23, who had only just made his return to action after going through ankle surgery over the summer.

“I must say that I’m very glad to be through, it was one of those where you have to be thankful that you got through because a lot of things were not working,” Momen said afterwards.

“I was trying hard to get into my own rhythm and I couldn’t. He was playing really well considering he had some time off in the summer to have an ankle operation. It’s really good that he’s playing this well with the preparation he’s had."


 
Willstrop Heads Up Quartet of English Winners on Day One

Former World No.1 James Willstrop led a trio of fellow Englishmen into the second round of the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill after he beat Egypt’s Omar Abdel Meguid on day one of the PSA World Tour Gold event taking place in Weybridge.

Willstrop, the 35-year-old from Harrogate, is making his return to St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club after missing out last year and he was too clinical for his opponent today as he hit consistent length and dropped well to record the win in straight games by an 11-9, 11-6, 11-5 scoreline.

"He fires the ball in, takes it short well and he has presence around the middle, which as I mentioned in the first I thought it could get us both into a bit of trouble," said World No.18 Willstrop.

"But we had a bit of a chat in the first game and everything was perfect after that. We sorted it out and played pretty clean from that point onwards.

"He's not easy to play, so I had to be ready and play well. Those shots [Meguid was hitting], I didn't see a thing there, I'm not sure what was going on, so I'll be getting my notebook out later to see if I can get any tips."

Willstrop will clash with New Zealand’s World No.8 Paul Coll in the next round. It will be their first meeting since Willstrop beat the Kiwi in the men’s Commonwealth Games singles final on the Gold Coast in April.

Declan James, the second-highest ranked English male, will join his compatriot in the last 16 after he got the better of fellow Englishman Adrian Waller by a 3-2 margin after a 73-minute battle.

James beat Waller in a 101-minute epic two weeks ago at the U.S. Open and he once again prevailed in an attritional affair, winning 9-11, 15-13, 11-8, 7-11, 11-5 to ensure that he will play last year’s runner-up Ali Farag in round two.

"I can feel the pressure, I wanted to do well so badly," said World No.20 James.

"[Because of] the rise in the ranking, the fact I won my biggest tournament [the Open International de Nantes in September], plus the U.S. [Open] match we just played was tense and controversial at times. We are from the same country, we are team mates, and we both wanted to win very badly. "

World No.21 Daryl Selby and home favourite Tom Richards were the other Englishmen to claim wins on the opening day, with Selby defeating close friend Ben Coleman, while Richards overcame Spain’s former World No.5 Borja Golan.

The longest match of the day saw French duo Mathieu Castagnet and Lucas Serme play out a brutal 103-minute fixture. Castagnet came into the match boasting a five-match unbeaten run against Serme, but he looked spent after squandering four match balls in the fourth to send the match into a decider.

But a herculean effort from World No.26 Castagnet saw him edge his fellow Frenchman to record an 12-10, 5-11, 11-7, 12-14, 11-9 victory which will see him play Indian No.1 Saurav Ghosal in the next round.

"It was amazing to play over an hour and a half against Lucas," Castagnet said.

"He’s such a great guy with a really nice attitude on court and he’s really fair. I would like to see more matches like that. This sport is such a difficult game and we showed you today how hard it is to be on the court. Even if I lost today against Lucas it wouldn’t matter, the most important thing is it was such a great match."

Meanwhile, Australia’s Cameron Pilley claimed his first win on the PSA Tour since undergoing ankle surgery after he downed England’s Chris Simpson in straight games to set up a round two fixture with 2016 runner-up Tarek Momen.

"I'm very happy with my performance," Pilley said.

"I had my ankle surgery at the end of June and although it's [recovery] ahead of schedule, I'm so impatient and I just want to be back to full fitness as soon as I can. There's been zero off-season training, so my focus has been on improving my shot selection and improving the quality of my shots. That's been my whole focus for the last month."

Elsewhere, tournament wildcard Charlie Lee saw his tournament come to an end at the hands of Scotland’s Greg Lobban, while Welshman Joel Makin scored an upset win over World No.19 Raphael Kandra.

The second round of the Channel VAS Championships begins tomorrow (Wednesday October 17) at 17:30 local time (BST) as the top eight seeds - including World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy, World No.2 Farag and 2016 champion Paul Coll - begin their tournaments.

CHANNEL VAS CHAMPS: DAY ONE - AS IT HAPPENS

The Channel VAS Championships at St George's Hill begins in Weybridge today with eight matches in store at the PSA World Tour Gold tournament.

There are no less than eight local players in action – including former World No.1 James Willstrop and World No.20 Declan James – as they vie for a place in round two.

Here's the Order of Play for Round One
(All times are local BST)


 

CHANNEL VAS CHAMPIONSHIPS: PREVIEW

All eyes will be on Weybridge between October 16-21 as World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy returns to defend his title at the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill.

Held at the St George’s Hill Lawn and Tennis Club, the PSA World Tour Gold tournament features 12 of the world’s top 20 players and ElShorbagy tops the entry list as he looks to claim this title for the second year running.

The 27-year-old Egyptian beat World No.2 Ali Farag in last year’s final as he lifted eight PSA World Tour titles during a dominant season for ‘The Beast of Alexandria’.

ElShorbagy has showed no signs of slowing down this season either after lifting his first title of the new campaign just last week at the FS Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships in Philadelphia.

The reigning World Champion is seeded to meet Farag in the final once again, and the two met earlier this month in the Oracle NetSuite Open title decider, in which Farag prevailed.

Farag, the 26-year-old Harvard-graduate, also reached the semi-finals in Philadelphia and he will be among the title challengers in Weybridge if he can make it past the likes of 2015 World Championship runner-up Omar Mosaad and 2016 World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad, both of whom are featured on his side of the draw.

Meanwhile, World No.8 Paul Coll will also appear in Weybridge two years after he broke through at this tournament to win the title.

The New Zealander battled through qualification before going on to lift the trophy and has started this season strongly.

26-year-old Coll reached the final of the J.P. Morgan China Open last month and also made it through to a first PSA World Tour Platinum semi-final last week at the U.S. Open, but his tournament came to an end at the hands of ElShorbagy.

Coll is drawn on the same side of the draw as ElShorbagy, but in order to set up a rematch with the World No.1, he may need to overcome World No.3 Tarek Momen, who he beat both in the 2016 final and last week in Philadelphia.

Peru’s Diego Elias and India’s Saurav Ghosal also feature and will be dark horses for the title, while an eight-strong English contingent – headed by former World No.1 James Willstrop – will also line up in Weybridge.

All of the action from the tournament will be shown live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World) and Eurosport Player (Europe only), while squash fans can watch the action in person by purchasing tickets from Ticketmaster.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to children’s charity CLIC Sargent, who offer cancer support for young people.
