Mighty Mo Takes Title In Mexico


World No.3 Mohamed Elshorbagy claimed his third PSA World Tour title in less than a month by defeating brother Marwan in the final of the Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas PSA International 70 tournament in Huixquilucan, Mexico.

The 22-year-old, who followed up his victory in the CIMB Malaysian Open on August 23 with a dominant performance in the Hong Kong Squash Open, where he beat World No.1 Gregory Gaultier in the final, continued his recent career-best form to see off his 21-year-old younger brother 3-0 in the final.

It was the third time the brothers have met on tour, with Mohamed undefeated in their meetings so far, and it was the elder brother who asserted his dominance from the start, completing an emphatic 11-3, 11-3, 11-2 win which sees him continue his so far unbeaten start to the 2014/15 PSA World Tour season.
Elshorbagy Brothers Set Up Family Final In Mexico
Egyptian brothers Mohamed and Marwan Elshorbagy, the World No.3 and No.17, will meet in the final of the Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas, PSA International 70 tournament taking place in Huixquilucan, Mexico after successfully coming through their semi-final encounters.
It will see the duo meet for just the third time on the PSA World Tour, with Mohamed having taken the spoils on both previous occasions, as they become the first brothers since Brett and Rodney Martin in 1993 to meet in a major PSA final.
Number one seed Mohamed, winner of the recent CIMB Malaysian Open and Hong Kong Squash Open, remains on course to claim his third title in a month after coming through a tricky match-up with compatriot Omar Mossad, with the Cairo-based player having to retire in the fourth game, handing Elshorbagy his place in the final.
While in the bottom half of the draw, Marwan, the younger of the two brothers at 21, followed up his impressive quarter-final win over number two seed and World No.12 Simon Rösner with a hard-fought victory over dangerous tournament wildcard Cesar Salazar, ending the local favourite's hopes of glory with a 3-1 victory.

Wildcard Salazar Upsets Momen In Mexico


Local favourite and tournament wildcard Cesar Salazar, the World No.51, pulled off one of the biggest wins of his career to complete a 3-0 rout over World No.9 Tarek Momen in the first round of the Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas PSA International 70 tournament yesterday.

Momen broke into the world top ten for the first time in his career this month after reaching the semi-finals of the recent Hong Kong Squash Open PSA World Series event, but the high altitude in Huixquilucan took its toll as Salazar made the most of the advantage to pull off an impressive 11-8, 11-6, 11-8 win in just 35-minutes.

The 26-year-old will now face Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet, who defeated qualifier Shaun Le Roux in the first round, in the quarter-finals where he'll be hoping to earn his first ever appearance in the semi-finals of the tournament, having failed to progress past the first round on the last two occasions.

Peruvian sensation Diego Elias, the 2014 World Junior Champion, pulled off an equally sensational first round victory, taking the scalp of South African World No.23, and tournament number eight seed, Stephen Coppinger with a well earned 3-1 triumph.

The 17-year-old, competing in his first ever PSA International 70 event, displayed a fine mix of talent and patience to come through 11-5, 11-3, 3-11, 11-6 in a 63-minute battle.

Elsewhere top two seeds Mohamed Elshorbagy, the Egyptian World No.3, and German World No.12 Simon Rösner, showed their class coming through comfortably in two tricky first round encounters against Alfredo Avila and Olli Tuominen, respectively, to keep alive their hopes of lifting the trophy on Sunday September 21.
