Kemp Claims Honours In Greek Open
The final of the Greek Open Squash Championship produced a fitting climax to the new PSA Tour event at Athens Lawn Tennis Club, the oldest club in the Greek capital which hosted the first Olympic Games tennis event in 1896, the year after it opened.

After beating Italy's eight seed Luca Mastrostefano in the semi-finals, England's top seed Jonathan Kemp faced another Italian in the final – second seed Davide Bianchetti, who struggled to a five-game victory over the Czech No1 Jan Koukal in the other semi.

In the final, honours were shared after the second game - and the third went to a tie-break before Kemp finally prevailed 5-3. However, the 25-year-old Englishman, a left-hander from Telford in Staffordshire, took control in the fourth to clinch his 11-9, 7-11, 11-10 (5-3), 11-4 victory.

The title success marks the third PSA Tour title of Kemp's career, but his first since winning the Goodlife Open in Canada last October.

Qualifying finals:
Morten W Sorensen (DEN) bt Fabian Kalaitzis (GRE) 9-11, 11-10 (2-0), 11-4, 11-3
Alejandro Garbi Caro (ESP) bt Petros Tzamaloukas (GRE) 11-6, 11-5, 11-3
Rene Mijs (NED) bt Mohamed Elkeiy (EGY) 6-11, 11-4, 11-9, 11-4
Ahmed Gamal Swaify (EGY) bt Andre Holderegger (SUI) 10-11 (2-4), 11-10 (2-0), 11-7, 2-11, 11-6

Moustroufis To Carry Greek Open Home Hopes Alone
Former national champions Fabian Kalaitzis and Petros Tzamaloukas crashed out of the qualifying finals of the Greek Open Squash Championship, leaving wild card player Nikolaos Moustroufis to carry home hopes alone in the first round of the new PSA Tour event at Athens Lawn Tennis Club in the country's capital.

Denmark's Morten W Sorensen beat six-times National champion Kalaitzis 9-11, 11-10 (2-0), 11-4, 11-3, while Spain's Alejandro Garbi Caro defeated Tzamaloukas, the 2003 champion, 11-6, 11-5, 11-3.

Moustroufis will face Hungary's sixth seed Andras Torok in the first round of the event which England's Jonathan Kemp is seeded to win. Kemp faces Egyptian qualifier Ahmed Gamal Swaify in the first round, while second Davide Bianchetti the Italian he is expected to meet in the final will meet Ireland's Arthur Gaskin.
