Khan Prevails For Persian Gulf Prize

Aamir Atlas Khan held off the challenge of fellow Pakistani Nasir Iqbal in the final of the 5th Kish Persian Gulf Cup to win the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash title after beating his unseeded opponent in five games at the Kish Olympic Sports Center in Kish Island, Iran.

Despite surviving a 108-minute five-game battle in the semi-finals, 18-year-old Iqbal opened up a 2/1 lead over the former world No14.

But Khan, who has never previously lost to his teenaged compatriot, reclaimed the upper hand in the encounter before closing out the match 11-5, 6-11, 7-11, 11-3, 11-8 in 85 minutes.

"I am very happy with my performance and enjoyed playing here on the best courts and in a beautiful place," Khan told the national TV channel. "It's a very well-organised event and I would like to come again next year.

"Thanks to Kish sports for this event and I wish them more success in squash and with their talented players who are the future of squash in the coming days," concluded the 22-year-old world No65.

The success takes Kahn's career tally to nine PSA Tour titles.


All-Pakistan Final For Persian Gulf Cup

For the second time in three years, a surprise all-Pakistan final will bring the Kish Persian Gulf Cup to a climax after Aamir Atlas Khan and unseeded Nasir Iqbal prevailed in contrasting semi-finals of the fifth staging of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Kish Olympic Sports Center in Kish Island, Iran.

Aamir, the second seed who ousted younger brother and 2011 champion Danish Atlas Khan to reach the semis, continued his powerful run in Iran to see off Egypt's Andrew Wagih Shoukry, the No3 seed, 11-7, 11-2, 11-7 in 32 minutes.

Khan is celebrating the 15th Tour final of his career.

It took Iqbal more than three times longer to produce the event's biggest upset when he beat top seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in another Pakistan/Egypt clash.

Reda, a former world No23 from Cairo and firm favourite for the event, twice had to stem leads by 18-year-old Iqbal, ranked 34 places lower.

But the Peshawar teenager held his nerve to close out the match 11-9, 6-11, 11-5, 9-11, 11-5 after 108 minutes to claim his fifth PSA Tour final appearance.


Aamir
Defeats Danish For Sibling Success

Brotherly love was cast aside when Aamir Atlas Khan defeated former champion Danish Atlas Khan to claim a place in the semi-finals of the 5th Kish Persian Gulf Cup, the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Kish Olympic Sports Center in Kish Island, Iran.

It was the third Tour meeting between the sons of the former Pakistan pro Atlas Khan - and the third victory by the senior sibling as 22-year-old Aamir despatched his 19-year-old brother, winner of the title in 2011, 11-4, 11-9, 10-12, 12-10 in 26 minutes.

Aamir now faces Andrew Wagih Shoukry, the No3 seed from Egypt who beat Pakistani Aqib Hanif 11-6, 11-7, 11-8.

The other semi will also be a Pakistan/Egypt battle after Peshawar-based Nasir Iqbal upset India's fourth seed Harinder Pal Sandhu 11-4, 11-6, 11-8.

Teenager Iqbal progresses to face top seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda, the world No47 from Cairo who dismissed Frenchman Geoffrey Demont 11-4, 11-7, 11-7.

 

Pakistanis Power Through In Iran

Pakistan players dominated proceedings on the opening day of main draw action in the 5th Kish Persian Gulf Cup, the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Kish Olympic Sports Center in Kish Island, Iran.

Second seed Aamir Atlas Khan led the way in his first appearance on the PSA Tour this year. The 22-year-old from Peshawar dismissed Jordan's Ahmad Al-Saraj 11-9, 11-9, 12-10 and will now face younger brother Danish Atlas Khan for a place in the semi-finals

Danish, aged 19, defeated Qatar qualifier Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi 11-7, 11-7, 11-8.

Another all-Pakistan battle took Aqib Hanif through to the last eight. Hanif, from Lahore, beat Khawaja Adil Maqbool 11-4, 11-5, 11-3 and progresses to meet Andrew Wagih Shoukry in the next round after the third-seeded Egyptian overcame Spanish qualifier Alejandro Garbi Caro 11-8, 11-13, 11-3, 11-4.

Nasir Iqbal ensured Pakistan interest in the top half of the draw. The 26-year-old from Lahore beat local hope Mohammad Reza Sadeghpour and will now face India's sole representative Harinder Pal Sandhu, the fourth seed, for a place in the last four.
