Dessouki Prevails In Pretoria Final

Just a week after reaching the first PSA World Tour final of his career, Egyptian teenager Fares Mohamed Dessouki went one better by picking up his first title at the NSA Open in South Africa.

The unseeded 18-year-old made his breakthrough in the second round of the inaugural PSA Challenger 5 squash event at the Pretoria Country Club in Pretoria when he toppled top-seeded Welshman Peter Creed in four games.

Victories over Englishman Thomas Ford and Zambian qualifier Kelvin Ndhlovu took Dessouki through to the final, seven days after making the climax of the Central Gauteng Open in Johannesburg.

His opponent Raphael Kandra, the second seed from Germany, survived a tough semi-final against Aqeel Rehman after fighting back from two games down to beat the No5 seed from Austria.

And Kandra, the world No75 from Essen, twice led in the final.

But outsider Dessouki, despite being ranked more than 160 places lower, held his nerve to take the match 5-11, 11-7, 5-11, 11-7, 11-9 to record his maiden Tour title.
