21-Dec, Semis:
Rosner ends Abdullah run in Kuwait

The final of the Alwatan & Asnan International in Kuwait will be between top seed Borja Golan and fourth seed Simon Rosner.

In today's semi-finals at the National Squash Centre in Kuwait City Golan dropped his forst game of the tournament to Dutchman LJ Anjema, but stormed back to take the next three and claim a place in the final after 74 minutes.

Rosner ended the run of home favourite Abdullah Al Mezayen with a straight-games win in 40 minutes.

"Yes!" tweeted the German number one. "Beat A.Muzayen 3:0 and thru to the final tomorrow. Really happy. Now preparing for the final tomorrow."

20-Dec, Quarters:
Abdullah marches on in Kuwait

Home favourite Abdullah Al Mezayen followed up yesterday's sensational win over second seed Daryl Selby with another five-game win in the quarter-finals, this time over Hong Kong's Max Lee.

"Second win today in alwatan & asnan psa tournment against world no.32 max lee from hongkong 3/2," tweeted Abdullah. "happy with my performance now playing semis!"

Abdullah now meets seed Simon Rosner for a place in the final, following the German fourth seed's four-game win over Alister Walker.

Top seed Borja Golan recorded a second consecutive straight-game win as he beat Ryan Cuskelly, but faces unexpected opposition in the semi-final after Dutchman LJ Anjema beat third seeded Egyptian Tarek Momen in four games.
19-Dec, Round One:
Home ace Abdullah axes Selby

Home favourite Abdullah Al Mezayen, who always performs his best at home in Kuwait, did it again with a sensational five game win  over second seed Daryl Selby in the first round of the $50k Alwatan & Asnan International at the Kuwaiti national squash centre.

Selby, who has just returned to the world's top ten in the December rankings, fought back from two games down to force a decider, but Abdullah struck again to take the fifth 11/5 to complete a famous upset on the hour.

"Happy 2 win today against @DarylSelby best win in my career  looking forward to play max lee from hong kong in quarter," tweeted a jubilant Abdullah.

Abdullah now faces Hong Kong's Max Lee for a place in the semi-finals.

Selby was suitably impressed: "By the way never seen anyone hit so many outright winners tonight and I felt I was moving well!" he tweeted. "Dead glass court made it tough but still... well played buddy. Good luck for the rest of the tournament."

That was the only upset of the day, but third seed Tarek Momen had to battle for five games to see off Joe Lee, and he now meets Dutchman LJ Anjema.

Top seed Borja Golan beat in-form Egyptian qualifier Fares Dessouky in four games to set up a quarter-final with Ryan cuskelly, while Germany's fourth seeded Simon Rosner meets Alister Walker, who also needed the full five games to beat young Egyptian Mazen Hesham.


18-Dec, Qualifying Finals:
Kuwaitis fall on day two

Kuwait's Ali Bader Al-Ramzi and Fallah Mohammed were unable to follow up their day one upsets as both home favourites fell at the qualifying hurdle.

Al-Ramzi fought back from two games down only to see Malaysia's Muhd Asrraf Azan take the decider after 78 minutes, while Mohammed lost in straight games to young Jordanian Ahmad Al-Saraj.

The other qualifying spots were taken by Egyptians, in-form Fares Dessouky - who drew top seed Borja Golan in the main draw - and the highest remaining qualifying seed Omar Abdel Aziz.

17-Dec, Qualifying Round One:
Top seeds fall to Kuwaitis on day one

While four home players failed to progress on the opening day of the Alwatan and Asnan tournament in Kuwait, it was a good day for Ali Bader Al-Ramzi and Fallah Mohammed as the two Kuwaitis recorded upset wins over the top two seeds Ali Anwar Reda and Leo Au in the qualifying competition.

Qatar's Abdulla Al Tamimi made it a bad day for the high seeds as he overcame Shaun Le Roux, the third seed, in five games.

Also upsetting the seedings in their bid to qualify for the last PSA International event of the year were Egypt's Fares Dessouky and Jordan's Ahmad Al-Saraj.
