Wimbledon: ElShorbagy Defeats Pajares To Win Title

Marwan ElShorbagy claimed the 10th PSA World Tour title of his career, as he downed Iker Pajares Bernabeu to win the Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open.

The Egyptian was the No.1 seed for the tournament, and had made it through to the final after dropping just three games along the way.

However, he came up against a young Spaniard who had knocked out the No.2 seed Omar Mosaad, No.6 seed Daryl Selby and No.3 seed James Willstrop en route to the final.

Claiming the title would be a step too far for Pajares though, as he succumbed to a clinical performance from the World No.21, who won it 13-11, 11-7, 11-6.

The first game was a tight one, as Pajares pushed the ‘Jackal’ all the way, but he clinched it on a tiebreak, before securing both the second and third games in much easier fashion.

ElShorbagy will now turn his focus to the Allam British Open, which starts on May 20, while Pajares’ next tournament will be the Midgal Insurance 11K Tel Aviv at the end of the month.

Result – Final: The Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open
[1] Marwan ElShorbagy (EGY) bt Iker Pajares Bernabeu (ESP) 3-0: 13-11, 11-7, 11-6 (51m)
