Khan saw off competition from compatriot Syed Ali Mujtaba Shah Bokhari – who came all the way through qualifying to reach the final – to clinch the PSA M5 title in 48 minutes.

Meanwhile, tournament top seed Villard overcame India’s Sunayna Kuruvilla in the women’s final as the 24-year-old sealed her maiden PSA World Tour title with a 3-1 victory in 41 minutes.
