Al Muzayen Celebrates Historic Lebanon Title

Kuwaiti Abdullah Al Muzayen celebrated an historic squash success in the final of the Senses Open in Beirut when he beat Egypt's Zahed Mohamed to win the first PSA World Tour event ever to be held in Lebanon.

The top seed from Kuwait City was in sensational form at Senses Squash Club in the Lebanese capital where he reached the climax of the PSA Challenger 5 event without dropping a game.

Left-hander Al Muzayen was marking his eighth Tour final - whilst Mohamed was making his maiden appearance in a PSA final after a series of stunning upsets.

The unseeded 19-year-old from Alexandria made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he beat second-seeded compatriot Ahmed Hawas in four games.

The unheralded teenager - ranked just inside the world top 200 - then battled for 52 minutes in the semi-finals to overcome fellow Egyptian Basem Makram, the No3 seed.

But Al Muzayen was too strong for his inexperienced opponent in the final, beating Mohamed 11-8, 11-8, 11-4 in 30 minutes to collect the fifth Tour title of his career.
