According to the seedings for the National Bank Financial Group Open, Egypt’s Hisham Mohd Ashour (pic) secured an unexpected place in the final in Montreal. But the win was the Egyptian’s fifth in six Tour meetings with the world No12 from The Hague since October 2006. 3rd seed Ashour was trying to hit the nick at every given opportunity and took the 11-7, 10-12, 11-4, 15-13 after 61 minutes of play. The Egyptian, now in his 10th PSA Tour final, faces 2nd seed David Palmer after the veteran Australian clinched his 2nd Tour final place in a week – and the 55th of his career – by beating unseeded Alister Walker after a 92 minutes encounter (5-11, 11-5, 8-11, 11-8, 11-6).
