CNS International 2013
18-23 Dec, Karachi, Pakistan, $15k

23-Dec, Final:
Farhan Mehboob bt [1] Nasir Iqbal  116, 11/6, 11/5 (51m)

Mehboob makes it five in Karachi

Farhan Mehboob collected his fifth PSA title with a straight-games win over top seed Nasir Iqbal in the final of the PDA $15k CNS International at the Roshan Khan/Jahangir Khan Squash complex in Karachi

The final may not have gone into a cliffhanger five setter but Magic boy Mehboob played the match with ease and magical racket skills to win comfortably. No doubt Nasir Iqbal is an up coming future player who has the ability to fight for every rally, but all the credit today goes to Hawk eyed Farhan Mehboob who made Iqbal  visit the four corners of the court.

Chief Guest for the final was Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Mohammad Asif Sandila who gave away the prizes. Beside the chief guest Squash Legend Jahangir Khan, SVP PSF Syed Razi Nawab, Secy Amir Nawaz were also witnesses the final.

"It was a big moment in my career, as critics had long written me down and out and said my days are over, but now I proved all my critics wrong by defeating the top seed Nasir and that too without any major difficulty," Mehboob told The Nation later.

"I must thank head coach Jamshed Gul for spending a lot of time with me in the training as it was his hard work which paid off. Another motivation behind me was my father Mehboob Khan who also spent day and night with me in the courts to polish my game and skills.

"I am happy that the performance in this event is one of the best in my entire career and I have not trained much before the event. I have to play the likes of Danish, Farhan Zaman and now Nasir Iqbal, but I managed to show outstanding skills against the three tough opponents and won the title."

The final match was Live Telecast on Pakistan Television.

Thanks to Pakistan National Coach Jamshed Gul for the report and results.

Farhan outlasts Danish in Karachi

Farhan Mehboob beat fellow Pakistani Danish Atlas Khan for the third time in a row in the first round of the CNS International in Karachi, in a mammoth 114-minute five-setter.

Left-hander Mehboob, a former World #16 now languishing at #147 who won the last running of the event in 2008, will now face fellow non-seed Muhammad Saqib Yousaf, who took 70 fewer minutes to get the better of qualifier Muhammad Asim Khan.

Twice runner-up Mansoor Zaman's bid to reach a third final came unstuck when he went down in straight games to fourth seed Aamir Atlas Khan.

Top seed Nasir Iqbal beat Waqas Mehboob in straight games, and will now line up against Tayyab Aslam for a place in the semi-finals.
