Borja Brings Title Home In Valencia

The crowd at the inaugural Valencia Open in Spain urged home the winner they wanted when top-ranked Spaniard Borja Golan beat Egypt's Omar Abdel Aziz in the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Club Olympia in Valencia.

After reaching the final without dropping a game, the favourite from Santiago de Compostela - Spain's highest-ranked player of all-time - maintained his unbeaten run in the climax, despatching Aziz 11-2, 11-6, 11-8 in 40 minutes.

The triumph marks 28-year-old Golan's 23rd PSA World Tour title - a success which takes the world No36 and former world 10 up to fourth place in the list of current players' tour title successes, behind Amr Shabana and David Palmer (each with 27 titles), but ahead of Ramy Ashour and Thierry Lincou (each with 22).

Golan Glides Into Valencia Final

Top-ranked Spaniard Borja Golan delighted the partisan crowd at the inaugural Valencia Open when he brushed aside Bradley Hindle to reach the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Club Olympia in Valencia, the third largest city in Spain.

The favourite from Santiago de Compostela had reached the semi-finals without dropping a game - and continued his confident run by dismissing unseeded Hindle, from Malta, 11-2, 11-4, 11-1 in just 25 minutes.

"Today I was more relaxed than yesterday and I felt pretty comfortable with my moments and shots," explained Golan, the former world No10 who is the highest-ranked Spaniard of all-time. "Bradley is a great player but maybe he felt the five games from yesterday.

"I want to thank all the Valencian supporters and the organisation to make possible one of the best tournaments that I ever played," added the 28-year-old, now in the 32nd PSA Tour final of his career, but his first for a year.

Golan will line up against second seed Omar Abdel Aziz in the final. The Egyptian ended Max Lee's brave run, beating the world No58 from Hong Kong 11-7, 11-4, 11-6.

Lee made his breakthrough in the first round where he ousted third seed Chris Simpson. "It's a nice tournament," said the 23-year-old. "I am very happy to win two tough matches - but not very happy for today. I made many errors!"

Aziz, the 28-year-old world No42 from Cairo, is celebrating the 11th Tour final of his career, and his third this year.

Bradley Battles To Valencia Semis

Unseeded Bradley Hindle survived the longest match in the quarter-finals of the inaugural Valencia Open to claim an unexpected place in the last four of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Maestro Serrano in Valencia, Spain.

The 30-year-old from Malta fought back from 2/1 down to overcome Mark Krajcsak, the fourth seed from Hungary ranked 19 places higher, 11-7, 6-11, 7-11, 11-5, 13-11 in 85 minutes.

Hindle's next opponent took less than half the time to earn his place in the semi-finals. Borja Golan, the top seed leading home hopes in Valencia, despatched English qualifier Olivier Pett 11-7, 11-8, 11-2 in 40 minutes.

Max Lee continued his impressive run in his first appearance in a Tour event in Spain. After ousting third seed Chris Simpson in the opening round, the unseeded 23-year-old from Hong Kong took five games to get the better of New Zealander Campbell Grayson, winning 5-11, 13-11, 11-9, 2-11, 12-10 in 65 minutes.

Lee now lines up against second seed Omar Abdel Aziz, the world No42 who survived a close second game to defeat unseeded Frenchman Gregoire Marche 11-4, 12-10, 11-7.

Mighty Max Downs Simpson In Valencia

Max Lee of Hong Kong earned an unexpected place in the quarter-finals of the inaugural Valencia Open when he ousted third seed Chris Simpson in the opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Maestro Serrano in Valencia, Spain.

In his second successive upset over the higher-ranked Englishman this year, Lee recovered from a game down to beat Simpson 9-11, 12-10, 11-6, 11-5.

The unseeded 23-year-old, ranked 58 in the world, will now face Campbell Grayson after the New Zealander defeated South African qualifier Shaun le Roux 4-11, 11-2, 11-6, 11-1.

Top-ranked Spaniard Borja Golan eased his way into the last eight after overcoming compatriot Alejandro Garbi Caro 11-6, 11-5, 11-4. The top seed from Santiago de Compostela will face qualifier Olivier Pett for a place in the semi-finals.

Englishman Pett, ranked 87 in the world, scored a notable upset when he beat Frenchman Yann Perrin, the world No68 from Aix-en-Provence, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5, 11-3.

France's Gregoire Marche survived the longest match of the day, overcoming Dane Kristian Frost Olesen 2-11, 11-7, 11-2, 7-11, 11-1 in 80 minutes.

The 21-year-old from Aix-en-Provence will now take on second seed Omar Abdel Aziz. The Egyptian also took more than an hour to see off his first round opponent Davide Bianchetti, beating the former world No24 from Italy 11-9, 11-8, 11-13, 12-10 in 70 minutes.
