RESULTS: PSA Challenger 15 CAS International, Peshawar, Pakistan

Farhan Despatches Danish For CAS Crown

Pakistan's Farhan Zaman pulled off his second national upset in two days when he beat third seed Danish Atlas Khan in the final of the CAS International Squash Championship to win the long-established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event at the PAF Hashim Khan Squash Complex in Peshawar.

Zaman reached the final after overcoming top seed Nasir Iqbal in the previous round.

The 20-year-old fourth seed from Peshawar was the underdog going into the final - having met the higher-ranked 19-year-old Khan twice before on the Tour, on both occasions losing in five games.

And Danish carried on where he left off, taking an early lead after surviving a tie-break opening game.

But Zaman struck back, winning the next three games in succession to secure his title-winning 10-12, 11-4, 11-6, 11-8 victory in 60 minutes.

The triumph marks the second Tour title of Zaman's career - but his first on home soil!

Danish Deals Out Brotherly Breakthrough

It was a case of fifth time lucky for Pakistan's Danish Atlas Khan in today's semi-finals of the CAS International Squash Championship when the teenager finally recorded his first ever PSA World Tour win over his older brother Aamir Atlas Khan to earn a surprise place in the final of the long-established PSA Challenger 15 event at the PAF Hashim Khan Squash Complex in their home city of Peshawar.

It was more than three years ago in Islamabad that the now 19-year-old Danish first faced Aamir, then ranked just outside the world top 20, in the PSF-CAA International Pakistan Circuit No2 - an event which Atlas Khan senior went on to win.

Further Tour meetings in Pakistan and Iran failed to change the status quo until this meeting on hometown soil - where third seed Danish recovered from the loss of the second game to beat his 23-year-old second-seeded sibling 11-1, 7-11, 11-8, 11-9.

It was defending champion Aamir Atlas Khan's first defeat in the event since 2006 - since when he has built up a 14-match winning streak, which included three titles.

There was also a shock in the other semi-final when fourth seed Farhan Zaman beat event favourite Nasir Iqbal, the Pakistan number one from Bannu, 11-5, 10-12, 11-5, 7-11, 11-6, to reach the fifth Tour final of his career.

Danish Atlas Khan goes into his seventh career PSA Tour final boasting a 2/0 career head-to-head record over Zaman, who also hails from Peshawar.

Atlas Khans In CAS Final Bid

Peshawar brothers Danish Atlas Khan and Aamir Atlas Khan will meet for a place in the final of the CAS International Squash Championship in their home city in Pakistan after surviving today's quarter-finals of the long-established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event at the PAF Hashim Khan Squash Complex.

Second seed Aamir, the defending champion, needed only four games to see off qualifier Nosherwan Khan 11-7, 11-3, 9-11, 11-9.

But his younger brother Danish was taken the full distance before finally overcoming former champion Mansoor Zaman, also from Peshawar and also a qualifier, 13-11, 8-11, 7-11, 11-1, 12-10.

Top seed Nasir Iqbal was also stretched to the limit before getting the better of fellow Pakistani Muhammad Saqib Yousaf 12-14, 11-4, 11-7, 9-11, 11-8.

The 19-year-old world No49 will now face fourth seed Farhan Zaman who made the last four after his namesake Farhan Mehboob retired injured after just two games, the score standing at 11-6, 12-10.

Qualifiers Zaman & Khan Progress In Peshawar

Qualifiers Mansoor Zaman and Nosherwan Khan progressed to the quarter-finals of the CAS International against expectations after upsets in today's opening round of the long-established PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at the PAF Hashim Khan Squash Complex in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Peshawar-based Mansoor Zaman, the 33-year-old former world No11, rolled back the years to see off 17-year-old fellow Pakistani Syed Ali Mujtaba Shah Bokhari 11-8, 11-6, 11-8.

Making his 14th successive appearance in the Tour event - and a finalist on six occasions - 2001 champion Zaman will now face Danish Atlas Khan, the No3 seed who beat wild card Owais Khan 13-15, 3-11, 11-7, 11-6, 11-5.

Nosherwan Khan, a 19-year-old also playing in his home town, defeated German-based fellow countryman Karamatullah Khan 11-4, 11-5, 10-12, 11-9.

The teenager, boasting a career-high world No 174 ranking, now faces Danish's older brother Aamir Atlas Khan, the No2 seed and three-time champion from Peshawar.

Title-holder Khan beat Tayyab Aslam 11-5, 11-5, 11-8.

Austrian Aqeel Rehman, the highest-ranked unseeded player bidding to become the only non-Pakistani to make the last eight, went down 11-7, 12-10, 4-11, 12-10 to local boy Farhan Mehboob, the 24-year-old former world No16.
