World No.3 Mohamed Elshorbagy claimed his third PSA World Tour title in less than a month by defeating brother Marwan in the final of the Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas PSA International 70 tournament in Huixquilucan, Mexico.

The 22-year-old, who followed up his victory in the CIMB Malaysian Open on August 23 with a dominant performance in the Hong Kong Squash Open, where he beat World No.1 Gregory Gaultier in the final, continued his recent career-best form to see off his 21-year-old younger brother 3-0 in the final.

It was the third time the brothers have met on tour, with Mohamed undefeated in their meetings so far, and it was the elder brother who asserted his dominance from the start, completing an emphatic 11-3, 11-3, 11-2 win which sees him continue his so far unbeaten start to the 2014/15 PSA World Tour season.

He Tweeted: “Had a great time in Mexico and glad it was a Shorbagy title this year. Being No.2 in next month’s rankings for the first time doesn’t sound too bad. Now I need some rest.”
