Khan Captures Chicago Open Crown
Number four seed Danish Atlas Khan defeated compatriot Farhan Zaman
3-1 in an all-Pakistani final in the Life Time Fitness Chicago Open,
PSA M10 event to lift his first PSA World Tour title of 2015.
The 21-year-old saw off Egypt’s Andrew Wagih Shoukry in the
semi-final while Zaman, who was competing for his second successive
PSA World Tour title, came through a five-game epic against Abdulla
Mohd Al Tamimi, the man he beat in the final of the Any Presence
Open three weeks ago.
The first game saw a number of punishing rallies take centre stage
as both players attempted to move their opponent off the ‘T’. It was
Khan who eventually prevailed in the opener by an 11-7 score line
before Zaman battled back to ensure parity in the second.
Khan, the nephew of squash legend Jahangir Khan, was back in front
in the third after a number of well-placed drives enabled the World
No.68 to rise to an 11-7 triumph.
He dictated the tempo in the fourth and final game to wrap up an
11-7, 9-11, 11-7, 11-5 victory to secure his eighth career PSA World
Number one seed Andrew Wagih Shoukry defeated wildcard Brian Byrne 3-1
in a tightly-contested encounter to reach the quarter-final of the
Life Time Fitness Chicago Open, PSA M10 event.
Shoukry took the first two games before Irishman Byrne displayed a
great deal of tenacity to earn the third. However, Cairo-born
Shoukry composed himself to claim the fourth game, sealing an 11-8,
11-6, 8-11, 11-5 victory in the process.
The Egyptian will now face Arturo Salazar who comprehensively beat
Faraz Khan in straight games.
Also through to the quarter-final is Farhan Zaman after his triumph
over Thoboki Mohohlo. The number two seed is fresh from a tournament
victory at the Any Presence Open on his last PSA World Tour outing
and has set up a quarter-final meeting with Evan Williams after he
dispatched Josue Enriquez.
Abdulla Mohd Al Tammimi is set to face Ashley Davies in the next
round following a 3-0 win over New Zealand’s Ben Grindrod. Davies
eliminated Mexico’s Eric Galvez in a 3-1 victory.
Reuben Phillips is also through after he fought hard to beat Josemar
Silva. Despite the match ending in a 3-0 win to Phillips, all three
games were incredibly tight but Phillips managed to hold his nerve
at the vital moments. Danish Atlas Khan will be looking to eliminate
Phillips in the next round having defeated Frenchman Christophe
