Home hero Al Muzayen survives Kuwait Challenge

February 26, 2012 - Abdullah Al Muzayen provided home success in the Kuwait Open Challenger - but the top-seeded local hero was taken the full distance by England's second seed Joe Lee before winning the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event in its second year at the South Surrah Ministries Complex in Kuwait City.

Both players survived lengthy four-game semi-finals - Al Muzayen coming from a game down to beat Australian Steven Finitsis in 50 minutes, while Lee needed an hour and also had to overcome a game deficit before seeing off in-form Indian Harinder Pal Sandhu.

The 24-year-old from Kuwait twice led in the final - but Lee twice came back to draw level.

Spurred on by local fans, however, left-hander Al Muzayen maintained his focus to close out the match 14-12, 6-11, 11-7, 10-12, 11-8 in 70 minutes.

The win takes Al Muzayen's PSA Tour tally to nine titles - and should see the Kuwaiti number one improve his current career-high world ranking of 69.
