Aziz Has His Revenge In Barcelona
Sweden's Badr Abdel Aziz made up for losing in the final twelve months ago by winning the 2006 Esportiu Rocafort Squash Open title, coming back from 2/1 down against England's Chris Ryder in the final in Barcelona, Spain.

Fourth seed Aziz was 2/0 down against Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet in the semi-finals. But the 25-year-old from Stockholm fought back to win 7-11 6-11 11-5 11-7 11-10 to earn a place in his third PSA final.

His unseeded opponent had reached the final after upsetting second seed Ahmed Mohsen Hassaan in the first round. The 25-year-old Englishman from Aylesbury disappointed the local crowds in the semi-finals when he beat Barcelona's Oriol Salvia in a four-game semi-final.

But Badr Abdel Aziz had the upper hand in the final, winning 11-9 8-11 8-11 11-7 11-7 to claim his second successive PSA title.

Spaniards Lead Upsets In Barcelona
Spanish qualifiers Constantino Casas and Oriol Salvia were the leading lights in a night of major upsets in the first round of the Esportiu Rocafort Squash Open in Barcelona, Spain.

Part-time player Casas defeated Italy's top seed Luca Mastrostefano 11-5 10-11 11-7 11-8 to set up a meeting with fifth seed Mathieu Castagnet, the 19-year-old Frenchman who had to fight back from 2/1 down to beat England's unseeded Philip Nightingale 11-6 5-11 9-11 11-8 11-1.

Oriol Salvia, a 30-year-old from Barcelona, overcame France's sixth seed Yann Perrin 11-4 11-5 6-11 11-2 and will now take on English qualifier Nick Wall for a place in the semi-finals. Wall, 33, from Sheffield, dismissed Hungary's third seed Andras Torok 11-10 7-11 2-11 11-10 11-4.
