RESULTS: PSA Challenger 15 Jena International, Kuwait City, Kuwait

 

Al Muzayen Celebrates Biggest Tour Title

Kuwaiti squash star Abdullah Al Muzayen celebrated the biggest title of his career when he defeated Egypt's Karim Abdel Gawad in the final of the Jena International No1 at Qadsia Sporting Club in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

And the unseeded 24-year-old did so in fine style - despatching two higher-ranked seeds in the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event and making his career-title breakthrough without dropping a game.

It was after ousting top seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in the quarter-finals that world No55 Al Muzayen faced his third successive Egyptian, third seed Gawad, in the final.

But the local hero was on fire, beating 20-year-old Gawad - ranked 35 in the world - 11-8, 12-10, 11-4 in just 35 minutes.

The title marks the 11th of Al Muzayen's career - and his seventh PSA Tour trophy on home soil.

Al Muzayen Background: Biggest Final In Kuwait

Kuwaiti squash star Abdullah Al Muzayen reached the biggest final of his career at the Jena International No1 when he despatched Egypt's Omar Abdel Meguid in straight games in the semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event at Qadsia Sporting Club in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

The 24-year-old Kuwaiti number one followed his comprehensive defeat of top seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in the previous round to overcome Meguid 11-7, 11-6, 11-7 in 36 minutes in his third successive 3/0 win in the event.

Al Muzayen, celebrating the 14th PSA Tour final of his career - but by far the biggest - now faces third seed Karim Abdel Gawad.

The 20-year-old from Cairo survived a 72-minute marathon to upset fellow countryman Marwan El Shorbagy, the 18-year-old No2 seed, 11-8, 8-11, 11-5, 9-11, 11-5 to reach the 10th Tour final of his professional career.

Al Muzayen Denies Egyptian Full House In Kuwait

In upsetting top seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in the quarter-finals of the Jena International No1, local hero Abdullah Al Muzayen put paid to an all-Egyptian semi-final line-up in the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Qadsia Sporting Club in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Avenging his defeat on the same courts almost two years ago, Kuwaiti number one Al Muzayen downed Reda, the world No27 from Cairo, 11-3, 11-6, 13-11 in 52 minutes.

Now boasting a career-high world No55 ranking, 24-year-old Al Muzayen next faces Omar Abdel Meguid, also a non-seed.

Meguid, ranked nine places below the Kuwaiti, upset fourth-seeded Pakistani Aamir Atlas Khan 11-9, 11-13, 11-8, 11-7.

The semi-final match in the other half of the draw is the predicted Cairo/Alexandria clash between Karim Abdel Gawad, the Cairo-based third seed, and Marwan El Shorbagy, the No2 seed from Alexandria.

Gawad survived an 87-minute marathon to beat fellow countryman Omar Abdel Aziz 9-11, 12-10, 11-9, 2-11, 11-8, while 18-year-old El Shorbagy despatched unseeded compatriot Zahed Mohamed 11-5, 11-5, 5-11, 11-6 in just 29 minutes.

Egyptians Progress In Kuwait

Top seeds Mohd Ali Anwar Reda and Marwan El Shorbagy led six Egyptians through to the quarter-finals of the Jena International No1, the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at Qadsia Sporting Club in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Favourite Reda defeated Kuwait qualifier Ammar Al-Tamimi 6-11, 11-3, 8-11, 11-8, 11-1 in 56 minutes to earn a battle with a further Kuwaiti Abdullah Al Muzayen.

The Kuwait number one despatched Indian qualifier Mahesh Mangaonkar 11-7, 11-5, 11-2 in just 30 minutes.

El Shorbagy, the 18-year-old second seed from Alexandria, took out fellow countryman and fellow teenager Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry 11-7, 11-8, 11-9.

Aamir Atlas Khan has extended Pakistani interest in the event. The fourth seed from Peshawar beat Kuwait's Nasser Al Ramzi 11-4, 11-6, 11-2.
