SERAJ TAKES TITLE IN EUROPE
Dec 21, 2016
Mohammad Seraj has stunned the European squash scene by winning the IMET Open Championship held in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The unseeded Jordanian shocked Dutch top seed Piedro Schweertman in the semi-final and went on to beat Hungary’s Farkas Balasz 3-0 in the final.
On his way to the last four, Seraj recorded superb victories over the Czech Republic’s Daniel Mekbib (3-0), Britain’s Miles Jenkins (3-0) and Britain’s Mark Fuller (3-1).
The win moves Seraj up to 150th in the world, a big move considering he was as low as 469 prior to winning the Amman Open Championship last month.
