Masotti Moves Past Khan to Win Maiden PSA Title on Kish Island

French fourth seed Baptiste Masotti won his first ever PSA World Tour title after an extremely hard-fought battle against Pakistanís Asim Khan in the final of the Iran Squash Federation Kish Persian Gulf, PSA M5 tournament - becoming the second Frenchman ever to lift the title in this particular event since Yann Perrin in 2010.

Masotti advanced to the showpiece event after downing Iraqi qualifier Mohammed Ferman Hasan in the previous round while Khan produced a thrilling comeback against compatriot Khawaja Adil Maqbool to overturn a two-game deficit and set up a climactic showdown with Masotti.

The opening game set the stall out for a tense battle with Masotti taking it after a dramatic 15-13 tie-break that saw both players go head-to-head with some thrilling rallies and heart-pounding exchanges playing out in front of a captivated crowd.

Khan refused to back down though and a resolute display from the 19-year-old saw him bring the match back to all square after getting the better of Masotti in the second game.

The third game went to another tie-break with Masotti again being the beneficiary before he ousted Khan by the slimmest of margins in the fourth to wrap up a 15-13, 9-11, 12-10, 11-9 triumph and lift his first PSA World Tour title in his fourth final.
