RESULTS: PSA CCI Challenger 15, Mumbai, India

Giant-Killer Ga Sabry Wins Mumbai Title

Egyptian teenager Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry today picked up his second PSA World Tour title in little more than a month - both against expectations - when he upset second-seeded compatriot Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in the final of the CCI PSA Squash Challenger 15, the inaugural PSA Challenger 15 event at the Cricket Club of India in Mumbai.

Just 24 hours after toppling the top seed Alan Clyne, the world No31 from Scotland, 19-year-old Ga Sabry repeated his giant-killing exploits against the No2 seed Reda, despatching the world No47 11-6, 11-9, 11-9.

"It was an astonishing performance by the young Egyptian squash star," said tournament organiser Mahesh Mangaonkar. "What lovely nicks, lobs, deception. This guy is just unbelievable!"

The success marks the 19-year-old world No62 from Cairo's fourth career PSA Tour title, and his second since March when, unseeded, Ga Sabry took the West of Ireland Open crown in Galway.

Reda Shakes Off Mangaonkar In Mumbai

Mohd Ali Anwar Reda claimed his anticipated place in the semi-finals of the CCI PSA Squash Challenger 15 in Mumbai - but the No2 seed from Egypt had to fight back from two games down and then survive two tie-break games before overcoming local hope Mahesh Mangaonkar in the quarter-finals of the inaugural PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event at the Cricket Club of India.

It was an impressive performance by the 19-year-old from Mumbai who is ranked outside the world top 100. But after 115 minutes, it was Reda - the world No43 - who prevailed 14-16, 6-11, 16-14, 12-10, 11-8 to earn a place in the last four.

The 24-year-old from Cairo will now face fellow countryman Omar Abdel Meguid, the No3 seed from Giza who beat Malaysian Ivan Yuen 13-11, 8-11, 11-8, 14-12.

Top seed Alan Clyne came through an all-Scottish clash with Greg Lobban 15-13, 11-5, 11-6 to set up a semi meeting with fourth seed Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry.

The 19-year-old from Cairo defeated Malaysian Elvinn Keo 11-5, 11-6, 12-10 and will have his eye on an all-Egyptian final.


Mahesh Marches Into Mumbai Quarters

Indian hopes in the inaugural CCI PSA Squash Challenger 15 in the country's biggest city Mumbai rest solely on the shoulders of Mahesh Mangaonkar after the 19-year-old despatched Jordanian Ahmad Al-Saraj in the opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event at the Cricket Club of India.

"I'm happy to win 3-0," said the Mumbai-based teenager, ranked outside the world's top 100, after his 11-3, 11-6, 11-4 victory. "I was very focused today and played with the right game plan. Big for me tomorrow as I will play my first top 30 player Mohamed Ali Reda. I'm very excited to play him in front of my home crowd. Hopefully I will play well and win."

Second seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda, the world No47 from Cairo, defeated Egyptian qualifier Ahmed Atef 11-3, 13-11, 11-4.

Unseeded Indian Harinder Pal Sandhu took the opening game against Omar Abdel Meguid - but the third-seeded Egyptian soon imposed himself on the match to secure his anticipated win by a 3-11, 11-2, 11-9, 12-10 margin.

"It was a good first match for me," said the 25-year-old from Giza. "Harry played really well in the first game and the crowd were cheering him off so that got me pumped and I started playing well in the next games. Hopefully I'll be playing better tomorrow."

Wildcard Ravi Dixit took Elvinn Keo the full distance, but the higher-ranked Malaysian ultimately won 11-5, 11-13, 11-2, 8-11, 11-7.

"Ravi showed a superb performance," said an event spokesman. "But he could have done better as he was leading 4-1 in the fifth. Unfortunately, Ravi made many unforced errors which gave Elvin an 8-7 lead and from there on Elvin managed to close it 11-8."
