Mosaad In NetSuite Open
match of the championship brought the inaugural NetSuite Open to a close
when Laurens Jan Anjema held off Egyptian challenger Omar Mosaad
in a tie-break decider to win the PSA World Tour International 35 squash
title at the Arillaga Center for Sports & Recreation at Stanford
University in California, USA.
"Omar came out
of the blocks fast," said Stanford University Squash Coach Richard Elliott.
"He was very aggressive and jumping on any of LJ's loose shots."
third-seeded 23-year-old from Cairo soon opened up a two-game lead against
Dutchman Anjema, the world No12 ranked just a single place higher.
The third game
was tight, level up to four-all before the rallies began to lengthen as Anjema
seemed to be working the tall Egyptian with his boasts.
Dutch champion pulled away to reduce the deficit, then drew level after the
fourth following a game characterised by errors from Mosaad.
"The fifth was
nip and tuck all the way through - with tons of lets," continued Elliott. "The

championship-ball which - after numerous long rallies that ended in lets - he
finally won a stroke after 100 minutes!

his career - and his fourth in the USA.

upper hand in the decider to record his second career victory over the
Englishman, winning 11-1, 7-11, 11-8, 6-11, 11-4 in 82 minutes.
