Hungarian Mark Krajcsak (ri) returned to winning form at the Kish Persian Gulf Cup in Iran when he upset top seed Yann Perrin (le) to claim the at Kish Island.

The 28-year-old 2nd seed from Budapest survived an evenly-contested clash with Perrin to topple the higher-ranked Frenchman 11-6, 11-7, 8-11, 11-5 in 40 minutes.

It was a major disappointment for the world No70 from Aix-en-Provence who won the Kish crown two years ago.

The success marks Krajcsak's ninth PSA Tour title – but the Hungarian number one's 1st for almost a year and a half.
