Selby beats top seed to take the title

England's Daryl Selby claimed the QSF #1 title as he beat top seed Omar Mosaad in straight games in the final at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex, just days after the end of the Qatar Classic at the same venue.

The win marks Daryl's 13th - and biggest - PSA title, and his first for two years.

Semis: Mosaad and Selby to meet in the final ...

The final of the QSF #1 will be contested by Egypt's Omar Mosaad and England's Daryl Selby after semi-final victories today at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.

Top seed Mosaad recovered from a slow start, losing the first game heavily to unseeded Englishman George Parker, but recovered to take the next three games with some comfort.

Selby, the third seed, also lost his opening game as Scotland's fifth seed Greg Lobban took a swift lead. Selby struck back, taking the next two games comfortably, but couldn't quite overhaul Lobban's 8-4 lead in the fourth as the Scot set up a decider.

After a close opening to the fifth, Selby forged ahead reaching 10-6 and closed it out on his third match ball.

Quarters: Tamimi bows out
as Lobban downs Kandra ...

Home interest in the QSF #1 PSA Bronze event ended as Qatar star Abdulla Al Tamimi lost out to England's Daryl Selby in the quarter-finals at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.

Selby, the third seed, took the first but Tamimi rallied well to level, and had game ball opportunities in the third before Selby regained the lead in extra points. The Englishman was always ahead in the fourth, and although it was close, the home favourite could never quite close the gap.

Top seed Omar Mosaad kept Egyptian interest alive as he despatched undeeded Englishman Josh Masters in straight games. He'll face more English opposition in the semis after George Parker followed up on his win over fourth seed Cameron Pilley with a three-nil win over Malaysia's Ivan Yuen, also unseeded.

In the final match of the day sixth seed Greg Lobban of Scotland ousted second seeded German Raphael Kandra in three close games.

Semi-finals start at 17.30 on Tuesday.

Round Two: Tamimi safely through to Quarters

Qatar’s Abdulla Al Tamimi made it safely through to the last eight as he beat Spain’s Iker Pajares in four tough games, setting up a quarter-final against Englishman Daryl Selby, who came from a game down to beat Finnish veteran Olli Tuominen.

Round Two saw the seeded players enter the fray, and three of them failed to make it past their first match. Eain Yow Ng fell in five games to Josh Masters, Ivan Yuen beat Chris Simpson in straight games, and in the biggest upset England’s George Parker beat fourth seed Cameron Pilley in three tough games.

That leaves Egypt’s Omar Mosaad as the only remaining seed in the top half of the draw, while all the bottom half matches went to seeding.
