Number three seed Rachel Arnold recovered from a 2-1 deficit to beat surprise package Menna Hamed in the final of the Malaysian Tour XI, PSA M5 tournament - securing her first title of the year in the process.
Arnold had dropped just a single game en-route to the final while Hamed had shocked a trio of seeds to book her spot in the showpiece event.
It was Arnold’s third final on the 2015 instalment of the Malaysian Tour with her two previous final appearances ending in defeats.
A strong start saw the Malaysian surge into a one-game lead but a gargantuan effort from Hamed saw her turn the match on its head as she went 2-1 ahead for the loss of a solitary point in game three.
However, Arnold came battling back and wrestled the momentum of the match in her favour, eventually rising to claim an exceptionally hard-fought 11-4, 10-12, 1-11, 11-9, 11-9 victory.
