Pakistan Teenager Iqbal Makes Tour Breakthrough In Islamabad

Nasir Iqbal became the latest Pakistan teenager to make an unheralded breakthrough on the world squash stage today when he won the PSF-CDA Pakistan International Squash Circuit No1 in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

The unseeded 16-year-old, playing in only his fourth professional event, made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 championship at the Mushaf Squash Complex where he ousted fourth seed Waqas Mehboob in straight games.

The Peshawar youngster's next victim was Waqas's older brother Waqar Mehboob - but Iqbal recovered from a game down to beat the second seed 7-11, 11-2, 11-3, 11-5 in 57 minutes.

Now in his maiden PSA Tour final, Iqbal faced Yasir Butt, the 22-year-old top seed from Lahore making his seventh Tour final appearance.

But Iqbal, ranked 282 in the world, was unfazed by his senior compatriot's greater experience - and battled for 49 minutes to quash the event favourite 11-5, 7-11, 11-4, 11-4 to claim the first PSA World Tour title of his career.

Air Marshal Tahir Rafique Butt, Vice Chief of the Air Staff, graced the ceremony as Chief Guest and awarded trophies to the winner and runner up.

Mighty Mansoor Despatches Danish In Islamabad Upset

Pakistan's Mansoor Zaman rediscovered the form which took him to 11 in the world eight years ago when he upset in-form third-seeded compatriot Danish Atlas Khan in today's quarter-finals of the PSF-CDA Pakistan International Squash Circuit No1, the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event at Mushaf Squash Complex in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

The 30-year-old left-hander from Peshawar, now languishing outside the world's top 200, battled for 79 minutes to overcome 17-year-old Danish Atlas Khan - winner of three successive PSA Tour titles over the past six weeks - 12-10, 8-11, 5-11, 11-7, 11-9.

Unseeded Zaman now faces Yasir Butt, the top seed who was also taken the full distance before beating fellow countryman Owais Khan 11-8, 11-9, 7-11, 5-11, 11-8.

There was an upset in the lower half of the draw where unseeded Nasir Iqbal ousted fourth seed Waqas Mehboob 11-5, 11-4, 11-3.

Iqbal, a 16-year-old also from Peshawar, will now face Waqas's brother Waqar Mehboob, the No2 seed who defeated Arshad Iqbal Burki 11-7, 9-11, 11-7, 11-3.
