Meguid Takes Islamabad Title

#PSAWorldTour

Egyptian Omar Abdel Meguid, the 26-year-old from Giza, ended hopes of a home triumph by defeating Aamir Atlas Khan in the final of the Serena Hotels CAS International Squash Championship, PSA International 25 tournament taking place in Islamabad, Pakistan.

The top seeded World No.28 eased his way to the final without dropping a single game but was taken all the way by Khan, the current World No.94 who has ranked as high as World No.14, and was forced to come from two-games down to deny the local favourite victory in the first International level PSA tournament to take place in Pakistan since 2007.

With the likes of squash legends Jansher Khan, Qamar Zaman and Geoff Hunt amongst those watching, the crowd were treated to an intense final as Khan showed the form that saw him rise to the top 20 in the PSA rankings in 2009 to take the opening two games. But the powerful Meguid showed his resilience to rally and forced the game into a nail-biting decider which he eventually sealed to complete and impressive 6-11, 6-11, 11-4, 11-5, 13-11 victory in just over an hour.

 
Aamir Triumphs In Battle Of Brothers

#PSAWorldTour

Pakistan's Aamir Atlas Khan secured his place in the final of the Serena Hotels CAS International Squash Championship, PSA International 25 tournament taking place in Islamabad, Pakistan by defeating his younger brother Danish in the semi-finals.

It was a victory that sees Aamir avenge two recent defeats to his younger brother on the PSA World Tour and sees him carry the hopes of the nation into the final, where he will face Egyptian top seed Omar Abdel Meguid in the hopes of becoming the first winner of a PSA International event to be staged in Pakistan since 2007.

Aamir secured his place in the final courtesy of a hard-fought 3-2 victory, with his brother pushing him all the way before eventually falling 11-9, 5-11, 11-13, 14-12, 11-5 while Meguid eased past Qatar's Abdulla Mohd Al Tamini 3-0 to progress to the final without dropping a single game en route.

#PSAWorldTour

Pakistan's number one squash player Nasir Iqbal, the World No.44, suffered a surprise defeat to compatriot and World No.94 Aamir Atlas Khan during the quarter-finals of the PSA International 25, Serena Hotels CAS International Squash Championship in Islamabad.

Iqbal, who finished runner-up in both his previous PSA World Tour competitions in July and August, fell to a 3-1 defeat against former World No.14 Khan who will now face his brother Danish in the semi-finals for the right to be the only Pakistani player represented in the final.

Awaiting them in the title decider will be either tournament favourite Omar Abdel Meguid, the Egyptian World No.28, or Qatar's Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi, the World No.74.
