Dominique Lloyd-Walter (ENG) bt Camille Serme (FRA) 9-0, 9-2, 4-9, 3-9, 9-4
With all eyes on the opening day on the comeback endeavours of retired Pakistan squash legend Jansher Khan - hoping to notch up the 100th Tour title of his career - it was perhaps remarkable that namesake Majid Kahn, from the same city of Peshawar, should ultimately prevail to win his maiden PSA Tour title.
The 23-year-old, ranked 108 in the world, made his breakthrough in the opening round when he upset top-seeded Englishman Bradley Ball. Khan went on to collect the scalp of sixth seed Tom Hoevenaars before quashing Jansher's conqueror Scott Handley, the No3 seed, in the semi-finals.
In a dramatic final against Alex Stait, an unseeded Englishman from Manchester, Majid triumphed 11-8, 9-11, 9-11, 11-4, 11-7 to win the trophy in his first PSA final since joining the Professional Squash Association exactly seven years ago!
Dominique Lloyd-Walter extended a distinguished record when she beat France's Camille Serme in the women's final. The 26-year-old from Harrow now boasts a 100% success rate in the four WISPA finals in which she has competed after defeating the European Junior champion 9-0, 9-2, 4-9, 3-9, 9-4.
