Unseeded local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen produced the title win that the crowd wanted when he beat fourth seed Omar Abdel Meguid in the final of the Jena International No2, the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally, Kuwait.

The Kuwaiti number one has enjoyed a sensational run the international tournament in his home country. His biggest scalp came in the opening round where he upset third-seeded Englishman Joel Hinds, a victory he followed with wins over unseeded Italian Amr Ramsy Swelim, then Egyptian qualifier Karim Ali Fathi - all in straight games.

And the 23-year-old left-hander from Kuwait City maintained this momentum against Meguid, ranked ten places higher.

In another straight games victory, Al Muzayen despatched Meguid 11-4, 11-8, 11-6 in 36 minutes to earn the seventh Tour title of his career.

Local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen delighted crowds at the Jena International No2 when he secured an unexpected place in the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally, Kuwait.

Left-hander Al Muzayen, aged 23, will now face a second Egyptian, Omar Abdel Meguid.

The fourth seed from Giza faced rising compatriot Mohamed Abouelghar, a qualifier. But 23-year-old Meguid was too strong for his 17-year-old opponent, winning 2-11, 11-7, 11-6, 11-5 in 44 minutes to claim the sixth Tour final appearance of his career.

Bader Battles To Conquer Khan

Local qualifier Bader Al Hussaini pulled off a major upset on the opening day of action in the Jena International No2 when he ousted top seed Kamran Khan to reach the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Qadsia Sporting Club in Hawally, Kuwait.

The 27-year-old Kuwaiti, ranked 144 in the world, recovered from a game down to topple Malaysian Khan, ranked more than 70 places higher, 8-11, 11-4, 11-9, 4-11, 13-11 in 74 minutes.

And there was further Kuwaiti success when the country's number one Abdullah Al Muzayen upset third-seeded Englishman Joel Hinds 11-9, 11-4, 11-5.
