Two in a row for Schnell, a first for Hany

Canada's Andrew Schnell ended the run of unseeded Indian Vikram Malhotra as he claimed his second PSA title in quick succession with a four game win in the final

"This is my second title in two weeks, so really happy to win today," said a delighted winner.
