Atlas Khan Becomes Youngest Winner Of COAS International Title

Pakistan's Aamir Atlas Khan defeated fellow teenager Yasir Butt in straight games in the final of the COAS International to become the youngest winner of the $25,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

The 17-year-old fourth seed from Peshawar, who made his breakthrough in the previous round when he upset England's second seed Jonathan Kemp, fought back from behind in all three games before overcoming Butt, the 19-year-old No8 seed from Lahore, 11-9, 11-10 (2-0), 11-9.

The triumph, in his fourth PSA Tour final, takes Khan's title tally to two - following the CAS International trophy success he achieved last August, also in
Islamabad.

 

Butt & Kahn To Contest All-Pakistan Islamabad Tour Final

Teenagers Yasir Butt and Aamir Atlas Khan will contest an all-Pakistan final of the COAS International - and produce the youngest ever winner - after surviving the semi-finals of the $25,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

Butt, the 19-year-old No8 seed from
Lahore who scored a stunning upset over top seed and world No12 Ong Beng Hee to reach the last four, beat fellow Pakistani Farhan Mehboob 11-6, 11-8, 11-9. His 30-minute victory over the No6 seed takes Butt into his second successive PSA Tour final.

Aamir Atlas Khan, the 17-year-old fourth seed from Peshawar, survived two tie-break games against Jonathan Kemp before upsetting the second seed from England 11-8, 11-10 (4-2), 11-10 (2-0) in 32 minutes.

Now in his fourth
PSA Tour final, Khan is looking for his third successive title success on home soil after winning last year's CAS International and Pakistan Open, both also in Islamabad.


Butt Battles To Beng Hee Upset In
Islamabad

Pakistan teenager Yasir Butt scored a major upset in the quarter-finals of the COAS International when he defeated Malaysia's top seed Ong Beng Hee in straight games in the $25,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

Butt, the No8 seed from Lahore, was in sparkling form as he romped to an 11-7, 11-5, 11-4 win over world No12 Beng Hee, last year's runner-up, in just 32 minutes.

The 19-year-old now faces fellow Pakistani Farhan Mehboob after the sixth seed ended the giant-killing run of Robbie Temple - beating the Englishman who had earlier removed Pakistan number one Mansoor Zaman 11-7, 11-2, 11-10 (2-0).

England's Jonathan Kemp stands in the way of an all-Pakistan semi-final line-up in Islamabad. The No2 seed from Telford took only 17 minutes to conquer former Pakistan No1 Shahid Zaman, the No7 seed, 11-2, 11-7, 11-3 - and will now face Aamir Atlas Khan, the 17-year-old fourth seed from Peshawar who beat India's No5 seed Saurav Ghosal 11-9, 11-3, 11-10 (3-1).

Temple Takes Out Zaman In Islamabad Upset

Unseeded Englishman Robbie Temple produced a sensational upset in the first round of the COAS International when he defeated the hosts' leading hope Mansoor Zaman, the No3 seed, in the $25,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

Temple, the world No97 from Gloucester, was taken to tie-breaks in the first two games of the match against local hero Zaman, the former world No11 now ranked 30 in the world. But the London-based 21-year-old survived both games - and went on to take the third to record an 11-10 (2-0), 11-10 (2-0), 11-6 victory in 28 minutes.

After scoring the biggest scalp of his career, Temple now faces another Pakistani for a place in the semi-finals: sixth seed Farhan Mehboob, also from Peshawar, beat compatriot Aqib Hanif, a qualifier, 11-4, 11-7, 11-4.

The event's top two seeds safely negotiated the first round - Malaysian favourite Ong Beng Hee kept on court for only ten minutes before his opponent Majid Khan retired injured with the score standing at 11-8, 9-1.

Second seed Jonathan Kemp became the second Englishman to reach the last eight when he beat UAE-based Pakistani Khawaja Adil Maqbool 11-4, 11-10 (2-0), 11-5.
