Schoor Shines In Historic All-German Tour Final

Schoor Shines In Historic All-German Tour Final

RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Club Esportiu XV Internacional d'squash Rocafort Open, Barcelona, Spain

In an historic first ever all-German PSA World Tour final, Jens Schoor upset second seed Raphael Kandra to win the Club Esportiu Rocafort XV Open Internacional d'squash Esportiu Rocafort in Barcelona, Spain.

Schoor, the third seed from Koblenz, made his breakthrough in the semi-finals of the PSA Challenger 5 event when he beat Muhammad Saqib Yousaf, the Pakistan qualifier who ousted top-seeded Englishman Olivier Pett in the previous round.

The unexpected Barcelona final saw the fifth Tour meeting between the German pair. Higher-ranked Kandra, the 22-year-old world No83 from Essen, built up a 2/1 lead.

But, in fittingly the longest match of the event, 25-year-old Schoor fought back to claim his 11-5, 7-11, 5-11, 11-6, 12-10 victory after 91 minutes - and pick up the fifth Tour title of his career
