The World’s number one Ramy Ashour beat his fellow country man from Egypt Amr Shabana 3-1 (9-11, 11-4, 13-11, 11-1) to clinch the Kuwait Open title on Tuesday for the second time of his career.

 

Shabana, the four-time World champion, had a good start of the game as he one the first set 11-9 but Ashour produced his master class to come back from behind and win three sets in a row to claim his second Kuwait Open title.

 

The game was just going one way as Ashour dominated most of it and he was even leading 10-0 in the last set before giving a way a point to Shabana before smashing the winner with a crushing victory of 11-1.

 

Ashour, 23, has extended his lead on the PSA ranking and consulate himself after losing the final of El Gouna Open last October against Karim Darwish because of injury.
