Comeback King Zaman Claims Any Presence Title

World No.68 Farhan Zaman mounted a stunning comeback from 2-0 down to overcome Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi and capture the Any Presence Open, PSA M10 crown.

The Pakistani number three seed stormed to victory against Jaakko Vähämaa in the semi-final while Al Tamimi dispatched second seed Shawn Delierre in four.

It was the 20-year-old Qatari who started the stronger of the two with his burgeoning potential evident as he took an 11-8 lead through a combination of deft touches and crafty deception. His penchant for cross-court nicks was noticeable in the second game as he went on to double his advantage.

The scores were level in the opening stages of the third game before a number of audacious volley drops from Zaman swung the momentum in his favour as he rose to an 11-6 triumph before levelling things up by taking the fourth 11-9.

The fifth and final game featured a number of gruelling rallies and Al Tamimi took a painful tumble after a particularly bruising succession of shots. This worked in Zaman’s favour as he continued on to complete an 8-11, 8-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-6 victory to lift his fourth PSA World Tour title.

Result – Final: Any Presence Open 2015
[3] Farhan Zaman (PAK) bt [4] Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi (QAT) 3-2: 8-11, 8-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-6 (69m)
