Meguid & Kobayashi Win Japan Titles

Meguid & Kobayashi Win Japan Titles

 

Egyptian Omar Abdel Meguid and local star Misaki Kobayashi emerged victorious in the Japan Pro Kansai Squash Open in the first year of a joint menís and womenís event at the XIST Sports Club in Wakayama, Japan.

 

It was an all-Japan final that brought the maiden womenís $4,000 WISPA World Tour event to a climax. 

 

While top-seeded Tokyo-born Misaki Kobayashi reached the second Tour final of her career without dropping a game, her experienced opponent Chinatsu Matsui, the No2 seed, battled for five games in her semi-final against Hong Kongís fourth seed Liu Tsz-Ling before surviving in 52 minutes.

 

But 20-year-old Kobayashi maintained her straight games run in the event by recording her first Tour triumph over her 33-year-old compatriot, beating Matsui 11-4, 11-9, 11-7 in just 21 minutes to earn the second title of her short career.

 

The final of the menís $4,000 PSA World Tour event was also a battle between two fellow countrymen. 

 

But second seed Omar Abdel Meguid was the underdog Ė facing favourite Karim AGA Samy.

 

Despite ranked exactly 50 places below 21-year-old Samy, 22-year-old Meguid recovered from a game down to upset his Cairo compatriot 8-11, 11-6, 11-5, 11-1 to secure the third Tour title of his career.
