Mosaad Survives Marathon To Win St Louis Title

 

Egyptian Omar Mosaad won his second PSA World Tour title of the year - and the longest squash match of his career - when he beat Canadian Shahier Razik in the final of the $15,000 Racquet Club Invitational at The Racquet Club in St Louis, USA.

 

It was the pair's second meeting in a Tour final in a week - but while the 21-year-old from Cairo clinched the KIG Open crown in Los Angeles in four games, second seed Razik extended the encounter to five games in St Louis.

 

Top seed Mosaad twice took the lead - and both times 32-year-old Razik fought back to draw level.

 

But, despite Razik's reputation as a winner of marathon matches, it was world No23 Mosaad that finally emerged triumphant after 125 minutes, winning 11-4, 8-11, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5 to earn the fifth Tour title of his career.

 

Mosaad & Razik To Contest St Louis Final

 

Top seeds Omar Mosaad and Shahier Razik will contest the final of the Racquet Club Invitational after surviving contrasting semi-finals in the $15,000 PSA World Tour squash event at The Racquet Club in St Louis, USA.

 

Canadian Razik, the second seed from Toronto, eased into his second Tour final of the year when he beat fellow Cairo-born Amr Swelim, the fourth seed representing Italy, 11-7, 11-7, 11-6.

 

But favourite Omar Mosaad, fresh from winning the KIG Open in Los Angeles - where he beat Razik in the final - dropped the first two games against experienced Egyptian compatriot Mohammed Abbas and was taken to a tie-break in the third.

 

Seventh seed Abbas, a former world No13 from Giza, made his breakthrough in the previous round where he despatched defending champion Mohd Ali Anwar Reda, the third seed also from Egypt, in five games.

 

But 29-year-old Abbas was unable to stop the younger Mosaad taking the third and fourth games to draw level - and then had to concede the match midway through the decider as the result of an injury, leaving Mosaad the victor in a 6-11, 4-11, 12-10, 11-3, 5-2 (ret.) scoreline.
