Amr Swelim Wins African Open
Egypt's Amr Swelim lifted the trophy in the African Open after upsetting both of the top two seeds in the first PSA Tour squash event ever to be held in Nigeria.

The 23-year-old fourth seed from Cairo made his breakthrough in the semi-finals of the $23,250 event in Lagos when he despatched top-seeded compatriot Omar Elborolossy 10-11 (0-2), 11-10 (5-3), 11-7, 11-4.

In the final, Swelim faced Aaron Frankcomb, the No2 seed from Australia.  Frankcomb, 22, from Hobart and ranked ten places higher than his opponent, took the opening game.

But Swelim fought back to win 7-11, 11-6, 11-8, 11-7. 
 

The success marked the Egyptian's second PSA Tour title triumph, following his maiden win three months ago in Spain where he claimed the Ciutat de Barcelona Open crown.
