Kandra Scores Surprise Seattle Success

#PSAWorldTour

German World No.50 Raphael Kandra celebrated his first ever PSA World Tour win over top seed Omar Abdel Meguid when he defeated the Egyptian 3-0 in the final of the Stratos Seattle Open, PSA Challenger 10 tournament.

Kandra, the eventís No.2 seed, reached his 16th PSA World Tour final after surviving a close five-game semi-final battle with third-seeded Indian Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu while Meguid, the world No.33, also prevailed in a marathon semi, seeing off Englandís fourth seed Declan James 10-12, 11-6, 11-9, 12-14, 11-5 after 140-minutes to set up his 17th Tour final.

Ranked 17 places higher and having emerged victorious in their past two meetings, Meguid was the firm favourite to taste glory in the final, but Kandra leapt into action from the off to take the first game 11-6. Meguid, clearly tired after the effort he put in the day before, found it difficult to build any real momentum and Kandra took full advantage of that to take the second game by the same margin.

24-year-old Kandra kept up the assault in the third and powered his way through 11-6, 11-6, 11-7 to collect his second Tour title of the year Ė an achievement only matched so far by Nick Matthew, the world No.3 from England who last week won his second title of the year at the PSA World Series Windy City Open in Chicago.
