Iqbal Takes Royal Lake Club Crown

A stunning sequence of victories led to unseeded Pakistani teenager Nasir Iqbal winning the Royal Lake Club Open, the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at The Royal Lake Club in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

The 18-year-old from Peshawar made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he upset local hope Muhd Asyraf Azan, the No2 seed from KL.

Iqbal faced another Malaysian in the semis. But a 'contributed injury' in the match sustained by Kamran Khan gave the third seed the chance to recover overnight. When replayed the following morning, however, it was Iqbal who prevailed, claiming his third successive straight games win in the event.

The other semi-final was an all-Indian affair, in which fourth seed Harinder Pal Sandhu ended Ravi Dixit's run, beating the qualifier 12-10, 11-7, 11-3 in 40 minutes.

But Iqbal maintained his seed-slaughtering run in the final, beating Sandhu 11-6, 11-5, 11-5 to claim the second PSA Tour title of his career - but his first on foreign soil.

Top Seeds Suffer In Royal Lake Open

Upsets continued in Kuala Lumpur today where the top two seeds crashed out of the Royal Lake Club Open, the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Malaysian capital's The Royal Lake Club.

Kuwaiti favourite Abdullah Al Muzayen looked to be in control in his quarter-final match against Ravi Dixit after taking a two-game lead.

But the Indian qualifier reduced the deficit after a tie-break third game, and was leading in the fourth when a hamstring injury forced Al Muzayen to concede the match.

Dixit's unexpected success now ensures Indian interest in the final as he will meet compatriot Harinder Pal Sandhu in the semis. Fourth seed Sandhu snuffed out Sanjay Singh of Malaysia 8-11, 11-8, 11-3, 11-8.

But there will be home interest in the last four after KL-based third seed Kamran Khan defeated English qualifier Nathan Lake 12-10, 11-6, 11-5.

However, in the day's other major shock, Pakistan's unseeded Nasir Iqbal put paid to an all-Malaysian semi after upsetting Muhd Asyraf Azan, the No2 seed from KL, 11-6, 11-7, 11-7.

Upsets Awash At Royal Lake

The quarter-finals of the Royal Lake Club Open will feature two qualifiers and a lucky loser after a series of dramatic upsets in today's opening round of the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at The Royal Lake Club in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

Local teenager Sanjay Singh went down in Wednesday's final qualifying round - but bounced back as a lucky loser when Pakistan's Muhammad Saqib Yousaf was forced to withdraw from the event.

Undaunted by his Kuwaiti opponent ranked almost 150 places higher, Singh stemmed a late fight-back by Bader Al Hussaini to beat the experienced 28-year-old 12-10, 11-7, 8-11, 5-11, 11-6.

The 18-year-old from Sarawak now takes on Indian Harinder Pal Sandhu after the fourth seed beat Taiwan's James Huang 11-7, 11-9, 9-11, 2-11, 11-9.

And qualifier Ravi Dixit will provide additional unexpected Indian interest in the last eight after despatching Canadian Fred Reid, ranked 70 places higher, 11-6, 11-4, 11-2.

Meanwhile, Englishman Nathan Lake reduced home interest in the last eight by upsetting KL-based Elvinn Keo, the highest-ranked unseeded player in the draw, 11-2, 13-11, 7-11, 11-3.

The qualifier from Cheltenham will now meet his second Malaysian in the event when he takes on third seed Kamran Khan. The London-born 22-year-old from KL needed five games to overcome Pakistani qualifier Khawaja Adil Maqbool 11-7, 8-11, 9-11, 11-9, 11-5.
