Rosner Claims Jena International Crown In Kuwait

German number one Simon Rosner upset top seed Aamir Atlas Khan in the final of the Jena International Championship in Kuwait to win the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event - and the biggest Tour title of his career - at Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally.

The third seed from Paderborn reached the final after overcoming local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen, a qualifier, in the previous round.

But Rosner, ranked 33 in the world, dropped the opening game of the final for just three points as Atlas Khan, ranked four places higher, looked on course to win his first Tour title for a year.

Just a month after winning his fifth German national title, however, Rosner battled back to win the next two games, then stemmed a fourth-game fightback by the Pakistani to clinch the decider by a two-point margin to record his 3-11, 11-5, 11-6, 9-11, 11-9 title triumph after 68 minutes.

The win marks the fifth title of 23-year-old Rosner's PSA Tour career - but the largest by a significant margin.

Rosner Downs Abdullah In Kuwait

Germany's Simon Rosner ended local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen's giant-killing run in the Jena International Championship when he beat the Kuwaiti qualifier to reach the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally, Kuwait.

The 23-year-old left-hander, ranked outside the world's top 100, defeated No2 seed Farhan Mehboob in the opening round - but it was a match too far for the top-ranked Kuwaiti when he faced German number one Rosner.

The third seed from Paderborn, ranked 33 in the world, battled for 34 minutes to overcome Al Muzayen 11-7, 11-9, 11-4 to reach the tenth PSA Tour final of his career, but his first this year.

Rosner will face favourite Aamir Atlas Khan after the 20-year-old Pakistani, ranked 29 in the world, beat Egyptian teenager Ali Farag 11-9, 9-11, 11-9, 11-6.

Farag, an unseeded 19-year-old from Cairo, made his breakthrough in the previous round when he ousted fourth-seeded compatriot Omar Abdel Aziz.

Atlas Khan, eager to reclaim his status as Pakistan's top-ranked player, is marking the ninth Tour final of his career, but his first for exactly a year.

Farag Floors Fourth Seed Aziz In Kuwait Upset

Egyptian teenager Ali Farag scored the biggest upset in the quarter-finals of the Jena International Championship when he claimed his first victory over higher-ranked compatriot Omar Abdel Aziz to reach the semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally, Kuwait.

Unseeded Farag, the 19-year-old world No79 from Cairo, overcame a third game fightback by fourth seed Aziz to beat the experienced 27-year-old, ranked more than 30 places higher, 11-7, 11-9, 12-14, 11-1 in 44 minutes.

Farag, now in his first Tour semi-final since January, will meet favourite Aamir Atlas Khan for a place in the final.

Khan, eager to reclaim his status as Pakistan's top-ranked player, battled for 47 minutes to overcome England's reigning World University champion Joel Hinds 11-6, 11-8, 7-11, 11-6.

Khan, the 20-year-old world No29 from Peshawar, is celebrating his first Tour semi-final appearance for a year.

Local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen, who upset No2 seed Farhan Mehboob in the opening round, continued to delight the Kuwait crowd by defeating fellow qualifier Harinder Pal Sandhu to earn a surprise place in the last four.

The Kuwaiti number one despatched his Indian opponent 13-11, 11-5, 11-5 to set up a semi-final clash with third seed Simon Rosner.

The German number one saw off Malaysian Muhd Asyraf Azan 11-4, 11-6, 11-8
