Shoukry Shocks Koukal In Resistencia

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 10 Tour de las Americas Regatas Resistencia Open, Resistencia, Argentina

Shoukry Shocks Koukal In Resistencia

Final:
[2] Andrew Wagih Shoukry (EGY) bt [1] Jan Koukal (CZE) 11-3, 11-13, 11-9, 11-7 (65m)

Egypt's Andrew Wagih Shoukry upset top seed Jan Koukal in the final of the Tour de las Americas Regatas Resistencia Open to win the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Club Regatas Resistencia in Resistencia, Argentina.

The 21-year-old from Cairo took the opening game, but Czech number one Koukal battled back to draw level.

"The third was a pretty even game, similar to the one before, but this time won by the Egyptian," said tournament spokesman Ramiro Maldonado. "Once in the fourth, Shoukry achieved to put himself together again, hitting a good combination of winners and some precise cross court drives, taking out from Koukal the possibility to attack, leading him again to win the game and the match."

Shoukry's 11-3, 11-13, 11-9, 11-7 victory in 65 minutes marks the Egyptian's fifth PSA Tour title - but his first of the year.

Top Seeds Make Argentina Final

Czech number one Koukal, the defending champion, ended Alex Ingham's impressive run by beating the unseeded Englishman 11-5, 15-13, 11-7 to clock up the 35th PSA Tour final of his career - and his second this year.

Wagih Shoukry, the second seed from Egypt, disappointed the local crowd by ousting home hero Gonzalo Miranda, the No4 seed from Argentina, 14-12, 11-8, 11-3.
