Maharashtra State PSA Open, Mumbai (2-7 Sept ’13)

Egypt’s Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry edged out fellow countryman Zahed Mohamed in a 61-minute final thriller to win the Maharashtra State PSA Open, a World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at the Bombay Gymkhana in Mumbai.
It was unexpected climax between No4 seed Ga Sabry and unseeded Mohamed, the 21-year-old from Alexandria who claimed the scalps of both top seed Ong Beng Hee and third seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda on his way to the final.
The win marks the fifth PSA World Tour title of Ga Sabry’s career – and his third this year!
