Mehboob & Kitchen Win NSC Titles

 

It took five games for both Waqar Mehboob and Shelley Kitchen to lift the titles in the NSC Series No4 Squash Championships after dramatic upsets in the finals of the Tour events at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

It was a fairy-tale conclusion to the men's $10,000 PSA Tour event when Pakistan qualifier Mehboob recorded his fourth successive upset to beat local star Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan, the second seed, 6-11, 11-9, 6-11, 11-7, 12-10 in 56 minutes.

 

The 17-year-old from Peshawar made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he beat top seed Renan Lavigne

 

The teenager's shock win marks his maiden PSA Tour title success - and comes only a week after Mehboob made his first appearance in a final - also in KL!

 

There was no less drama in the final of the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event where favourite Vanessa Atkinson, the former world champion from the Netherlands, led by two games and was poised to beat second seed Shelley Kitchen in straight games.

 

But the determined Kiwi fought back - surviving three successive tie-break games to notch up an incredible 8-11, 2-11, 13-11, 14-12, 13-11 victory after 63 minutes.

 

The win marks Kitchen's third successive WISPA title win in Kuala Lumpur in a month - and the 15th of the Aucklander's glorious career.

 

Mehboob Makes NSC Final In KL

 

After another marathon encounter in the NSC Series No4 Squash Championships, Pakistan qualifier Waqar Mehboob has now reached the final of the $10,000 PSA Tour event after beating South African Clinton Leeuw in the semi-finals at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

The 17-year-old from Peshawar made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he beat top seed Renan Lavigne.  Mehboob battled for 77 minutes to record his 11-8, 14-12, 6-11, 4-11, 11-9 victory over 26-year-old Leeuw, from Cape Town.

 

Now in his second Tour final in Kuala Lumpur in a week, the promising Pakistani will face local star Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan after the second seed from KL beat up-and-coming compatriot Ivan Yuen, an 18-year-old qualifier, 11-4, 11-4, 7-11, 11-8.

 

Adnan is celebrating his 10th PSA Tour final appearance but his first for almost a year.

 

Action in the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event continued to progress according to the seedings:  Former world champion Vanessa Atkinson secured her expected place in the final with a surprisingly straightforward 11-4, 11-1, 11-7 win over England's Tania Bailey, the third seed, in 29 minutes.

 

The Dutch favourite, now in the 36th Tour final of her career, will face second seed Shelley Kitchen.  The Auckland-based New Zealander despatched England's Dominique Lloyd-Walter, the fourth seed, 11-7, 11-8, 11-8, to notch up her 22nd WISPA final appearance, the third in KL this year.

 

Waqar Wipes Out Top Seed Lavigne In KL

 

Pakistan teenager Waqar Mehboob maintained his 'giant-killing' run in the NSC Series No4 Squash Championships after toppling top seed Renan Lavigne in the quarter-finals of the $10,000 PSA Tour event at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

After ditching fifth-seeded Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet in the first round, the 17-year-old qualifier celebrated the highest-ranked scalp of his career by beating Lavigne, the world No32 from France, 10-12, 11-5, 11-8, 13-11 in exactly an hour.

 

Mehboob, the world No97 from Peshawar, would have expected to meet a fellow countryman in the semi-finals but a further shock in the men's event led to unseeded South African Clinton Leeuw claiming an 11-9, 11-5, 7-11, 8-11, 12-10 victory in 50 minutes over Shamsul Islam Khan, the No7 seed from Quetta.

 

The longest match in the event also produced an unexpected outcome and guaranteed the presence of local interest in the final.  Ivan Yuen, an 18-year-old qualifier from Selangor, prevailed 6-11, 12-10, 11-13, 11-9, 11-5 against fourth-seeded Australian Ryan Cuskelly in a 96-minute marathon.

 

The Asian junior champion will now face fellow Malaysian Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan after the second seed also got the better of an Australian, beating Zac Alexander 11-8, 11-6, 11-13, 11-6.

 

Action in the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event continued to progress according to the seedings, with former world champion Vanessa Atkinson leading the drive through to the semi-finals.  The Dutch favourite beat Donna Urquhart, the No7 seed from Australia 11-9, 11-8, 6-11, 11-4 and will now meet England's Tania Bailey for a place in the final.

 

The third seed from England ended Malaysian interest in the event with a 12-10, 11-4, 11-4 win over rising star Delia Arnold.  Bailey will be hoping to avenge the straight games defeat by Atkinson she suffered in their last meeting a year ago also in KL!

 

Revenge was in the air when England's Dominique Lloyd-Walter beat sixth seed Sarah Kippax 11-7, 11-3, 11-7 only a month after losing to her lower-ranked compatriot in the British National Championship.

 

Fourth seed Lloyd-Walter will now take on Shelley Kitchen following the second-seeded Kiwi's 11-5, 11-7, 11-3 win over Ireland's Aisling Blake.

Seeds Slump In KL Championships

 

Half of the men's seeds failed to make the last eight of the NSC Series No4 Squash Championships after being beaten by lower-ranked players in today's (Wednesday) first round of the $10,000 PSA Tour event at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

Shahid Zaman was the highest seed to fall.  The third seed from Pakistan was beaten 11-5, 11-4, 11-4 in just 16 minutes by unseeded South African Clinton Leeuw.

 

But there was unexpected Pakistani success at the top of the draw where 17-year-old qualifier Waqar Mehboob recovered from a game behind to upset fifth-seeded Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet 8-11, 11-8, 11-9, 11-9.  The Peshawar teenager will now face favourite Renan Lavigne, the world No32 from France who despatched local player Elvinn Keo, a qualifier, 11-8, 11-9, 11-4.

 

Second seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan leads local interest in the men's event.  But the 22-year-old from KL needed 64 minutes to overcome 19-year-old compatriot Kamran Khan, ranked more than 70 places lower in the world, 11-13, 7-11, 13-11, 11-3, 11-3.

 

Former world champion Vanessa Atkinson, from the Netherlands, is favourite to win the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event title.  The UK-based 33-year-old defeated Pontefract club-mate Lauren Siddall, a qualifier, 11-3, 11-8, 8-11, 11-6 and will now take on Australian Donna Urquhart for a place in the last four.

 

In contrast to the men's event, all eight seeds sauntered through to the quarter-finals with local player Delia Arnold taking the longest route.  The KL-born 23-year-old took 67 minutes to get past Australian Lisa Camilleri 15-13, 11-7, 16-18, 11-6.

 

The fifth seed will now face England's Tania Bailey for a place in the semi-finals.
