Khan Captures CAS Crown In Islamabad


Aamir Atlas Khan successfully defended his title in the 2008 CAS International when he beat fellow Pakistani teenager Farhan Mehboob in today's (Monday) final of the $30,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.


Ranked just four places higher in the world than his opponent, 17-year-old top seed Atlas Khan battled for 49 minutes to beat 19-year-old Mehboob 11-6, 15-13, 6-11, 11-7.


The victory marked Khan's third PSA Tour title - all of which have been won on home soil.


The occasion was graced by Mr Naveed Qamar, Federal Minister Finance and Privatization Republic of Pakistan, as chief guest.


Over 18 years, the CAS International Squash Championship has become one of the most popular and second-highest paying squash events in Pakistan - which was first organized in 1990, with its title CAS Open Squash Championship.  With its growing popularity, the championship captivated the interest of squash enthusiasts from across the world, and it was modified as CAS International Squash Championship in 1997 with prize money increased to US $ 10,000.  The amount of prize money was enhanced to US $ 20,000 in 2001 and further increase of US $ 5,000 was made in 2002.  This year CAS has again added an amount of US $ 5,000 into the prize money which has rendered the championship 3 star on PSA schedule.


Frankcomb Foils Koukal In Islamabad


Australian Aaron Frankcomb upset fourth seed Jan Koukal in the quarter-finals of the CAS Squash International to become the only non-Pakistani to reach the last four of the $30,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.


The 23-year-old sixth seed from Hobart defeated the Czech number one 5-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-9 in 59 minutes - and will now face favourite Aamir Atlas Khan, the 17-year-old defending champion who battled for 71 minutes to overcome fellow Pakistani Yasir Butt 11-7, 6-11, 10-12, 11-7, 11-7.


The other semi-final will be a local derby between second seed Mansoor Zaman and third seed Farhan Mehboob, both from Peshawar.  Zaman despatched Egypt's Mohd Ali Anwar Reda 11-3, 11-2, 11-3 in just 19 minutes, while Mehboob ended the brave run of Mohamed El Shorbagy, beating the unseeded 17-year-old Egyptian 11-7, 11-5, 11-3.


Zaman, the former world No11 now ranked just two places above Mehboob, will be hoping to avenge his shock first round loss to his compatriot in the event last year.

Of Quarter-Final Berth In

Egyptian teenager Mohamed El Shorbagy caused the only upset on the opening day of action in the CAS Squash International when he beat eighth seed Tom Richards in the first round of the $30,000 PSA Tour squash event at the Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

The UK-based 17-year-old from Alexandria, who is playing in his first Tour event in Pakistan, recovered from a game down to beat Richards, from Surrey, 11-13, 15-13, 11-7, 11-5 in 45 minutes.

El Shorbagy will now face one of four Pakistanis who have made it through to the last eight.  Third seed Farhan Mehboob beat compatriot Amjad Khan, a former Pakistan number one, 11-4, 11-4, 11-5 in just 21 minutes.

Another all-Pakistani first round clash saw 17-year-old Aamir Atlas Khan successfully begin the defence of his title with a 11-7, 11-9, 11-6 win over Safeer Ullah Khan.  The top seed from Peshawar will now face a further fellow countryman Yasir Butt, the No5 seed, for a place in the semi-finals.
