Home Hero Borja Golan Wins Spanish Open Crown

Top-ranked Spaniard Borja Golan delighted the local crowds on the Spanish island of Tenerife when he beat Egypt's Mohamed El Shorbagy in the final of the $22,000 OHL Spanish Open at Centro Insular de Squash de Tenerife in Santa Cruz to become the first local winner of the PSA Tour squash event.

The top seed reached the 25th Tour final of his career after despatching Australian Scott Arnold in straight games in 35 minutes - while El Shorbagy, the 17-year-old fourth seed, had to battle for more than twice that time in the other semi-final to upset second-seeded compatriot Omar Mosaad and reach his maiden PSA final.

But the reigning world junior champion fully stretched the experienced Golan, ranked 14 in the world - and twice levelled the match after the Spaniard took game leads.

Golan ultimately prevailed 11-4, 8-11, 11-6, 7-11, 11-8 in 78 minutes to win the 18th PSA Tour title of his career. 

The 25-year-old from Santiago follows in a distinguished line of former PSA Spanish Open champions, including Amr Shabana - the most recent winner in Seville in 2003 - and Jahangir Khan and Jansher Khan.

Scott Secures Spanish Open Semi Slot


Australian Scott Arnold caused the first upset in the OHL Spanish Open when he knocked out third-seeded Frenchman Renan Lavigne in the quarter-finals of the $22,000 2-star PSA Tour squash event at Centro Insular de Squash de Tenerife in Santa Cruz on the Spanish island of Tenerife.

The 22-year-old from Brisbane battled for 80 minutes to overcome the world No32 from France 11-6, 3-11, 15-13, 3-11, 11-8.

Eighth seed Arnold now faces local hero Borja Golan, the top-ranked Spaniard from Santiago who cruised to an 11-3, 11-6, 11-6 victory in 31 minutes over Egyptian Mohd Ali Anwar Reda.

Second seed Omar Mosaad and fourth seed Mohamed El Shorbagy will meet in the other semi to guarantee an Egyptian finalist.
