Egypt’s Andrew Wagih Shoukry scored his second PSA World Tour title in two weeks when he upset top seed Kristian Frost Olesen in the final of the PSA Valencia Open, the PSA Challenger 10 squash event in its fourth year at Olympia Spa & Fitness in Valencia, Spain.

The No.3 seed from Cairo reached the final – the 17th of his career – when he ended the run of local star Edmon Lopez Moller in the semis. Spanish qualifier Moller had earlier upset the form book when he ousted Muhd Asyraf Azan, the second seed from Malaysia.

Shoukry needed 77 minutes to get the better of Olesen, despatching the World No.79 from Odense 11-4, 7-11, 11-1, 11-8 to notch up the seventh Tour title of his career.

The triumph, following November’s success in the London Open in England, also established a new eight-match unbeaten Tour run for Shoukry.
