Marwan Makes It Three In Edmonton

Two-time world junior champion Marwan Elshorbagy collected the third PSA World Tour title of his career at the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open in Canada when he beat Karim Ali Fathi in the all-Egyptian final of the PSA Challenger 15 squash event at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton.

"Just won my third PSA title here in Edmonton, very happy with the way I played the whole week!" tweeted the 20-year-old from Alexandria after his 11-5, 13-11, 8-11, 11-5 victory in 69 minutes. "Now waiting for my flight to Hong Kong."

Both players prevailed in four-game semi-finals - top seed Elshorbagy needing 57 minutes to overcome third-seeded New Zealander Martin Knight and second seed Ali Fathi, also 20, from Cairo, ending unseeded Pakistani Farhan Zaman's run.


Farhan Makes Second Surprise Edmonton Semi

Pakistan's unseeded Farhan Zaman prevailed in the quarter-finals of the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open to secure a surprise semi-final berth in the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton, Canada, for the second year in a row.

"Farhan won the Edmonton crowd over last year at the ReidBuilt Homes tournament with his electrifying style of play," said event spokesman Alvin Thomas.

The 20-year-old from Peshawar followed his breakthrough first round win over Mexico's No.4 seed Alfredo Avila by overcoming Spanish qualifier Carlos Cornes Ribadas 11-3, 12-10, 11-6 in 39 minutes.

Ranked 64 in the world, Zaman now faces No.2 seed Karim Ali Fathi for a place in the final of the Tour event in its sixth successive year at the Royal Glenora Club.

Egyptian Ali Fathi, ranked 23 places higher, ended home interest in the championship when he beat Canadian wild card Graeme Schnell 6-11, 11-7, 11-9, 11-8 in 49 minutes.

The other semi will the match predicted by the draw, between Egypt's top seed Marwan Elshorbagy and third-seeded New Zealander Martin Knight.

World No.32 Elshorbagy defeated England's Declan James 11-3, 11-6, 11-1 while Knight had to fight back from a game down to conquer Australian qualifier Scott Arnold 8-11, 11-5, 11-6, 11-9.

Zaman Zaps Avila In Edmonton Upset

Unseeded Pakistani Farhan Zaman claimed an unexpected place in the quarter-finals of the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open when he upset No.4 seed Alfredo Avila in the opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its sixth successive year at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton in the Canadian province of Alberta.

The 20-year-old from Peshawar took just 26 minutes to crush World No.56 Avila 11-3, 11-7, 11-5 to earn a clash with Spaniard Carlos Cornes Ribadas.

The qualifier from Santiago de Compostela also upset a Mexican, ousting World No.78 Arturo Salazar 5-11, 11-9, 13-11, 11-7.

Ribadas will be joined in the last eight round by fellow qualifier Scott Arnold after the Australian despatched Canadian 'lucky loser' Fred Reid 11-5, 11-9, 11-9.

But there will be Canadian interest in the next round when Calgary's Graeme Schnell takes on Egypt's No.2 seed Karim Ali Fathi.

Schnell defeated higher-ranked Welshman Peter Creed 11-8, 11-6, 11-5. But the 25-year-old wild card's hope to meet his younger brother Andrew Schnell for a place in the semi-finals were dashed when 20-year-old Ali Fathi beat 22-year-old Schnell junior, a qualifier, 10-12, 11-9, 11-9, 11-8 in 71 minutes.
