Danish Ditches Seeds To Win FAJR International

Pakistan teenager Danish Atlas Khan won his second Tour title in Iran in less than a week when he beat Malaysian favourite Muhd Asyraf Azan in the final of the Fajr International, the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 squash event in Arak.

The 17-year-old from Peshawar survived two tie-break games before beating second-seeded fellow countryman Waqar Mehboob in the semi-finals to set up his final meeting with Azan, the world No60 from Kuala Lumpur.

Atlas Khan again battled through two games which went into extra points before the world No 174 finally emerged triumphant with his surprise 12-10, 11-4, 14-12 victory.

The win marks the second Tour title of the young Pakistani's career.
