Assured Schoor Claims Kiev Crown

Jens Schoor maintained his membership of the exclusive club of players who have never lost in a PSA World Tour final when he clinched the inaugural Ukrainian Squash Open at Sport Life in Kiev.

The second seed from Germany reached his fourth Tour final when he beat England’s fourth seed Jonathan Harford in the semi-finals of the PSA Challenger 5 event in four games.

But despite the fact that his final opponent Piedro Schweertman also survived a four-game semi, the 23-year-old from Koblenz was able to keep the third-seeded Dutchman at bay in straight games.

The 11-9, 11-4, 11-5 victory marks Schoor’s second Tour title of the year – but the fourth of his career!
