Krajcsak Crowned Kish Champion

Hungarian Mark Krajcsak returned to winning form at the Kish Persian Gulf Cup in Iran when he upset top seed Yann Perrin to claim the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash title at Kish Sports Centre at Kish Island.

The 28-year-old second seed from Budapest survived an evenly-contested clash with Perrin to topple the higher-ranked Frenchman 11-6, 11-7, 8-11, 11-5 in 40 minutes.

It was a major disappointment for the world No70 from Aix-en-Provence who won the Kish crown two years ago.

The success marks Krajcsak's ninth PSA Tour title - but the Hungarian number one's first for almost a year and a half.

Perrin & Krajcsak To Contest Kish Crown

Mark Krajcsak and Yann Perrin overcame their Kish Persian Gulf Cup semi-final opponents in straight games to set up the anticipated final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Kish Sports Centre at Kish Island in Iran.

Second seed Krajcsak, the 28-year-old world No77 from Budapest, defeated fourth-seeded Frenchman Fabien Verseille 11-4, 15-13, 14-12 in 49 minutes to reach the 14th Tour final of his career.

The other semi was an all-French affair in which favourite Perrin needed 50 minutes to see off No3 seed Joan Lezaud 11-3, 13-11, 11-8.

The 26-year-old world No74 from Aix-en-Provence is celebrating the fourth PSA Tour final of his career - but his first since winning the Kish title two years ago.

Krajcsak v France For Kish Crown

Second seed Mark Krajcsak is on course to reach the final of the Kish Persian Gulf Cup in Iran, but a trio of Frenchmen stand in the Hungarian's way of winning the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event in its fourth year at Kish Sports Centre at Kish Island.

The 28-year-old from Budapest ended Nathan Lake's run when he beat the English qualifier 11-2, 11-4, 11-7 in 30 minutes.

Krajcsak will now face Fabien Verseille, the fourth seed from Aix-en-Provence who ousted in-form Pakistani Muhammad Saqib Yousaf 11-5, 13-11, 11-5.

Top seed Yann Perrin offers Krajcsak's stiffest resistance in the lower half of the draw. The 2010 champion defeated Kuwait's Ammar Al-Tamimi 11-7, 13-11, 11-9.

The 26-year-old world No74 - ranked just three places higher than the Hungarian number one - will line up against fellow countryman Joan Lezaud in the other semi-final.

Lezaud, 26 and also based in Aix, was taken the full distance before overcoming Finn Matias Tuomi 11-9, 7-11, 11-9, 2-11, 11-6 in 47 minutes.

Seeds Progress At Kish Island

While all four seeds progressed safely through the first round of the Kish Persian Gulf Cup in Iran, England's Nathan Lake became the only qualifier to make the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Kish Sports Centre at Kish Island when he beat fellow countryman Reuben Phillips for the second time in 24 hours.

Lake, the European Junior champion from Cheltenham, despatched Phillips in straight games in the tournament's final qualifying round - then found he was paired up again with the 20-year-old Londoner when Phillips was handed a 'lucky loser' slot following the last-minute withdrawal of top seed Jan Koukal.

And a remarkable shock looked on the card when Phillips - who shares an identical ranking with his opponent - took the first game in the main draw match.

But 19-year-old Lake recovered to close out the match 11-13, 11-8, 11-3, 11-6 in 41 minutes to earn himself a quarter-final clash with second seed Mark Krajcsak.

The Hungarian number one saw off local hope Mohammad Sanaee, a qualifier, 11-4, 11-3, 11-6.
