Meguid Delivers Delft Double

Meguid Delivers Delft Double

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Kean Delft Open, Delft, Netherlands

Egypt's Omar Abdel Meguid made a successful return to the Dutch city of Delft when he retained the Kean Delft Open trophy after beating local star Piedro Schweertman in the final of the PSA Challenger 5 squash event at Squash Delft.

Seeded to reach the final for the second year in a row, the 23-year-old from Giza dropped just one game en-route to the climax - where he faced unseeded Schweertman.

The 28-year-old from Amsterdam had earlier scored two notable scalps in the event - firstly overcoming Egypt's No4 seed Karim A G A Samy in the quarter-finals, before shocking second-seeded New Zealander Kashif Shuja in four games in the semis.

But Meguid, ranked more than 25 places higher than Schweertman, was too strong for the Dutchman in the final - taking just 25 minutes to close out the match 11-6, 11-5, 11-5.

The win takes Meguid's Tour tally to five titles from seven final appearances.
