Khan & Lloyd-Walter Take London Open Titles
It took five-game finals to settle the outcome of both titles in the inaugural Anscombe & Ringland London Squash Open - with Pakistani qualifier Majid Khan fighting back from 1/2 down to take the men's PSA Tour crown and England's top seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter triumphing in the women's WISPA World Tour climax at the Cumberland Club in London.

With all eyes on the opening day on the comeback endeavours of retired Pakistan squash legend Jansher Khan - hoping to notch up the 100th Tour title of his career - it was perhaps remarkable that namesake Majid Kahn, from the same city of Peshawar, should ultimately prevail to win his maiden PSA Tour title.

The 23-year-old, ranked 108 in the world, made his breakthrough in the opening round when he upset top-seeded Englishman Bradley Ball.  Khan went on to collect the scalp of sixth seed Tom Hoevenaars before quashing Jansher's conqueror Scott Handley, the No3 seed, in the semi-finals.

In a dramatic final against Alex Stait, an unseeded Englishman from
Manchester, Majid triumphed 11-8, 9-11, 9-11, 11-4, 11-7 to win the trophy in his first PSA final since joining the Professional Squash Association exactly seven years ago!

Dominique Lloyd-Walter extended a distinguished record when she beat France's Camille Serme in the women's final.  The 26-year-old from Harrow now boasts a 100% success rate in the four WISPA finals in which she has competed after defeating the European Junior champion 9-0, 9-2, 4-9, 3-9, 9-4. 

Majid Makes It Into London Final
Exactly seven years after first becoming a member of the Professional Squash Association, Pakistan's Majid Khan is celebrating his maiden appearance in a PSA Tour event final after upsetting England's Scott Handley in the semi-finals of the Anscombe & Ringland London Open at the Cumberland Club in London.

The 23-year-old qualifier from Peshawar fought back from two games down to beat Handley - the third seed from Oxfordshire who defeated Pakistan squash legend Jansher Khan in his comeback appearance in the first round - 8-11, 10-11 (2-4), 11-3, 11-5, 11-4.

Kahn now faces unseeded Englishman Alex Stait, the Manchester-based 27-year-old from Gloucestershire who recovered from a game behind to beat South African Jesse Engelbrecht 7-11, 11-3, 11-3, 11-10 (3-1) to reach his eighth PSA final.

The women's WISPA World Tour event also produced a remarkable upset when
France's unseeded Camille Serme recovered from losing two whitewash games to beat England's No2 seed Rebecca Botwright 9-5, 0-9, 0-9, 10-9, 9-6.

In her second appearance in a Tour final, the European Junior champion from Creteil now faces her third successive English opponent in a showdown with top seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter.

The 26-year-old from Harrow - who boasts a 100% success rate in the three WISPA finals in which she has competed so far - despatched Pakistan's Carla Khan 9-4, 9-4, 9-0 in the other semi-final.

Scott Soldiers On In London Open
England's Scott Handley continued to make progress in the Anscombe & Ringland London Open after his triumph over squash legend Jansher Khan in the first round of the inaugural Tour event at the Cumberland Club in London.

The third seed from Oxfordshire battled for five games to overcome France's No7 seed Mathieu Castagnet 8-11, 11-4, 11-8, 7-11, 11-2.

Handley will now face a second Khan from Pakistan - qualifier Majid Khan, who continued his giant-killing run in the event by beating sixth-seeded Dutchman Tom Hoevenaars 11-7, 10-11 (0-2), 11-6, 11-8. The 23-year-old from Peshawar upset top seed Bradley Ball in the first round.

A Khan also made waves in the women's event when Carla Khan - grand-daughter of the great Azam Khan - upset England's third seed Sarah Kippax 10-9, 9-5, 9-4. The 26-year-old UK-based Pakistani will now face top-seeded Englishwoman Dominique Lloyd-Walter, who beat India's No5 seed Joshna Chinappa 9-7, 9-4, 9-5.

Handley Handles Squash
Legend Jansher In London Open

In probably the most testing match of his career, England's Scott Handley faced - and beat - Pakistan squash legend Jansher Khan in the first round of the Anscombe & Ringland London Open at the Cumberland Club in London.

Jansher Khan, the former world number one and record eight times world champion, was making a much-touted comeback - playing in his first event in London since winning the Super Series Finals in March 1998, the last of his 99 career PSA Tour titles.

Khan showed signs of his former brilliance as he took the opening game, much to the delight of the capacity crowd.

But the lack of match fitness soon began to show on the 38-year-old who retired shortly after losing the 1998 British Open final to British rival Peter Nicol.

Third seed Handley, the world No54 from Oxfordshire with eight PSA titles to his name, soon regained the upper hand and ultimately clinched a 9-11, 11-6, 11-6, 11-0 victory.

“I am very happy with the way I played, but three weeks is not enough training,” Jansher said, "I need two or three months."

Handley summed up his feeling afterwards succinctly: “Relieved,” said the 32-year-old, who now becomes the highest seed in the event following the surprise exits of the top two seeds.

There were further English successes in the men's event when Kent qualifier Ben Ford beat India's No4 seed Ritwik Bhattacharya 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, 11-10 (7-5) and Gloucestershire's unseeded Alex Stait defeated fifth-seeded Pakistani Khawaja Adil Maqbool 11-7, 11-6, 11-10 (4-2).

Dominique Lloyd-Walter leads home interest in the women's event. The top seed from Harrow beat Bedfordshire qualifier Victoria Lust 9-4, 9-0, 9-4 and will now face India's fifth seed Joshna Chinappa for a place in the semi-finals.

Home Interest Boosted In Inaugural
London Open
Domestic interest in the Anscombe & Ringland London Squash Open will be boosted by a further five English players who came through the qualifying finals of the inaugural Tour event at the Cumberland Club in London.

Tom Pashley, Joe Lee and Ben Ford overcame compatriots Philip Nightingale, Neil Hitchens and Adrian Waller, respectively, to earn places in the main draw of the 1-star PSA Tour men's event. Pashley, 19, from Sussex, will face Dutchman Tom Hoevenaars, the No6 seed, while Lee, the 18-year-old from Surrey who was runner-up in the European Junior Championships this year, will take on France's seventh seed Mathieu Castagnet.

Ben Ford, 32, from Welling in Kent, earns a clash with India's fourth seed Ritwik Bhattacharya.

In the women's WISPA World Tour event, 2006 British Junior National champion Rachel Willmott, from Sussex, despatched Pakistan's Anna Batool Kardar 9-0, 9-0, 9-1 and will now meet Joshna Chinappa, the fifth seed from India.

Willmott's successor, the reigning British Junior champion Victoria Lust, from Bedfordshire, beat compatriot Carrie Hastings and will now face top-seeded English woman Dominique Lloyd-Walter, the world No19 from Harrow.

All eyes, however, will be on the first round men's match between England's Scott Handley, the third seed from Oxfordshire, and Pakistan's Jansher Khan - the former world No1 and record eight-time world champion who is making his first appearance in London since March 1998.

Victory by the retired squash legend, now aged 38, would bring Khan's career PSA Tour title tally to 100.
