Elshorbagy Claims Malaysian Open Crown
 
#PSAWorldTour
 
Egyptian Mohamed Elshorbagy, the 22-year-old World No.3 from Alexandria, picked up his ninth career title after defeating Hong Kong's Max Lee in the final of the CIMB Malaysian Open 2014 earlier today.
 
Having recorded impressive 3-0 wins over Kuwait's Abdullah Al Muzayen, local hope Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan and compatriot Tarek Momen on his way to the final, Elshorbagy maintained his perfect record in the tournament, taking just 34-minutes to complete an 11-6, 11-7, 11-9 victory over the World No.25.
 
The win, his first ever title triumph at the Malaysian Open, sees Elshorbagy begin his season in formidable fashion as he travels to next week's Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Squash Open 2014, the first PSA World Series event of the 2014/15 season.
 
Elshorbagy is seeded second for that event, with World No.1 Gregory Gaultier favourite for the crown, but having with a win to his name the rising young star will be hopeful of landing one of the sport's most prestigious titles
 
Elshorbagy Favourite For Malaysian Open Crown

#PSAWorldTour

Egyptian Mohamed Elshorbagy (right), the World No.3, will be aiming to claim his ninth PSA World Tour title when the CIMB Malaysian Open, a PSA International 50 event, gets underway in Kuala Lumpur on August 20.

The 23-year-old powerhouse, who has leapt up the rankings over the last year, tops the seeding for the 2014 staging of the event which has been a staple on the PSA World Tour circuit since 2008.

Elshorbagy's stiffest competition is likely to come from second seed and World No.7 Borja Golan of Spain while the Egyptian duo of World No.12 Tarek Momen and World No.18 Karim Abdel Gawad will be hoping to upset the favourites and steal glory for themselves.

"I am excited to start my season with the Malaysian Open," said Elshorbagy.

"I love going back to Malaysia, I have played there many times and it has always been such an enjoyable experience and I am sure it will be the same this year as the Malaysian federation and CIMB do an amazing job and we have to be thankful to them.

"It is very important to have a good start to the season as that builds up confidence for the rest of the year.

"I am normally a slow starter so my team thought playing Malaysia would be the perfect start for me and I am really looking forward to being back on court for the big battles again.

"I am taking the tournament as preparation for the season - I am not expecting to be at my peak - so I am going to just go there and enjoy myself and give it my best shot."
