There were two titles available on the PSA Challenger Tour this weekend, in Prague and Lahore, with Kristian Frost and Tayyab Aslam reigning supreme.
In the Czech Republic, Kristian Frost took the Prague Open title, after defeating Finland’s Miko Aijanan in the final. The Finn had won the Austrian Open last week.
Frost was the No.1 seed coming into the tournament, and he showed his quality in getting past Russia’s Vladislav Titov and home favourite Viktor Byrtus to reach the semis.
His last four clash was more difficult, as he fell a game behind to Englishman Miles Jenkins. However, the Dane fought back to win 3-1 in just over an hour.
The final was a surprisingly straight-forward task for Frost, who allowed Aijanan, the No.2 seed, to win just 12 points in their 50-minute clash.
It is the Dane’s 16th title on the PSA World Tour and his second in the 2018-2019 season, after he secured the Open Squash Provence Chateau-Arnoux in October.
At the FMC PVT Ltd International Men’s Squash Championship in Pakistan, it was No.1 seed Tayyab Aslam who took home the title, as he beat compatriot Danish Atlas Khan in the final.
Aslam dropped just a single game all tournament, as he went behind to Abbas Zeb in the second round of the competition.
He then won 3-0 in the quarters again Khawaja Adil Maqbool, before doing the same in the semis against Zahir Shah. The final took just 32 minutes, as Aslam won his fourth title in the last 18 months.
