Zahed Scores Surprise Jordan Win

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Al Hassan Open, Amman, Jordan

In a rare seedless final, Egyptian teenager Zahed Mohamed picked up the first PSA World Tour squash title of his career when he beat fellow countryman Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry to win the inaugural Al Hassan Open in the Jordan capital Amman.

Unseeded Mohamed made his breakthrough in the opening round of the PSA Challenger 5 event at the Al-Hassan International Squash Center when he beat Elvinn Keo, the No3 seed from Malaysia.

But Ga Sabry, a 17-year-old qualifier from Cairo, claimed the event's biggest scalp by defeating top-seeded Egyptian Omar Abdel Meguid. It was a 68-minute semi-final match which went the full distance - and earned the youngster a place in his first Tour final.

Mohamed, a 19-year-old from Alexandria, was too strong for his opponent in the final, however, winning 11-9, 13-11, 11-7 in 36 minutes.
