Raphael Kandra's tally of PSA World Tour titles extends into double figures as he has proven himself to be one of the foremost Gemans within the sport.
Fürth-born Kandra opened his account by lifting the New South Wales Open in July 2011 but faced a two year trophy-drought until his Gas City Open triumph over top seed Jan Koukal in the final.
Kandra made history in January 2013 when he competed in the first ever all-German PSA World Tour final with Jens Schoor in the Rocafort Open – eventually losing in five games to his compatriot.
His fifth title came at the Gibraltar Open in 2014 and his victory at the Finnish Open in February 2015 saw him elevated into the world's top 50 in the March World Rankings.
Four months later he captured his 10th title, and his first PSA M15 crown, at the NZ Southern Open where he came back from 2-0 down in the final to triumph over Tsz Fung Yip.
However, Kandra had some mixed results for the rest of the year and suffered a number of first round exits.
