After finishing as runner-up last year, England’s Adrian Grant (pic) went one better in the 2010 Santiago Open – by winning in Santiago de Compostela. The top seeded Londoner faced Egypt’s No2 seed Omar Mosaad – and, for the 3rd time in the event, had to fight back from behind to overcome his opponent. Mosaad, the world No17 from Cairo, took the opening game – but 30-year-old Grant, ranked just a single place higher, battled back to beat the 22-year-old Egyptian 6-11, 11-7, 11-7, 12-10 after 71 minutes. The 2nd win in 2010 takes Grant’s career tally of Tour titles to 17 – one more than England team-mate Nick Matthew, the world No2.
Grant came back to take Santiago title!
