NEW SOUTH WALES OPEN 2011 (Men)
 

Kandra Crowned NSW Open Champion

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 New South Wales Open, Sydney, Australia

Kandra Crowned NSW Open Champion

Germany's Raphael Kandra celebrated title success in the New South Wales Open after beating Aqeel Rehman in a shock all-European final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 squash event at Willoughby Squash Centre in Sydney, Australia.

It was after beating England's third seed Lewis Walters in the quarter-finals that Kandra, the No8 seed, produced a major upset by ousting second-seeded Australian Rex Hedrick in a five-game semi-final marathon.

And in the other semi, Austrian Rehman denied the hosts the predicted all-Australian final when he despatched Sydney-born favourite Scott Arnold.

But Kandra, celebrating his second unexpected Tour final appearance in Australia in a row, was now on a roll.

After dropping the first game, the 20-year-old from Erlangen battled for 62 minutes to overcome fifth seed Rehman - winning 6-11, 13-11, 11-9, 8-11, 11-9 to claim the first PSA World Tour title of his career.
