Ramy Ashour takes Kuwait crown!

Ramy Ashour (pic front) claimed his 2nd Kuwait Open title after his victory in 2007. He beat reigning world champion Amr Shabana (pic back) in four games (9-11, 11-4, 13-11, 11-1). With this win Ashour took revenge on his defeat of the Kuwait world open final last year. This time Shabana took a tight 1st game and Ashour levelled with an easy 2nd game. The third was a brutal encounter as Shabana came back from 8-10 down into the tiebreak, which Ashour clinched 13-11. After this Shabana’s resistance was broken and Ashour eased through the 4th in less than 3 minutes. After taking the Hong Kong Open and the ROWE British Grand Prix titles, it’s Ashours 3rd Super Series Victory this year.
