World No. 11, Egypt's Omar Mosaad, has finished second in the Abierto Mexicano de Raquetas squash championship that took place in Mexico, just behind first-seeded Gregory Gaultier.
The veteran Frenchman won his 22nd Tour final title, after beating the 23-year-old Egyptian in straight sets 11-6, 11-8 and 11-5.
Mosaad had a stunning run, beating Alfredo Avila of Mexico 3-0 in the first round, then compatriot and second-seeded Karim Darwish 3-2 in the quarters, before ousting Germany’s Simon Rosner 3-2 in the semis.
Mosaad and Darwish were among four Egyptians to reach the finals as Mohamed El-Shorbagy lost against Gaultier 3-1 in the quarterfinals before third-seeded Amr Shabana was surprisingly eliminated by Borja Golan of Spain 3-1 in the first round.
The PSA World Tour International 70 championship is Mexico's biggest-ever tour event, boasting a $70,000 prize.
