PESHAWAR (APP) - World no. 50, second seeded Farhan Mehboob clinched the title after defeating Safeerullah in the straight sets final of the NWFP All-Pakistan Senior Squash Tournament played here at PAF Hashim Khan Squash Complex on Wednesday. NWFP Sports Minister Syed Aqil Shah was the chief guest. President of the NWFP Squash Association Muhammad Shafi, former World Champion Qamar Zaman, Director PAF Sports Control Board Wing Commander Farooq Bokhari, and large number of game's spectators were also witnessed the final. It was expected that former British Junior Champion Shafeerullah would have to give tough fight to Asian Junior Champion Farhan Mehboob but all such predictions proved otherwise because Farhan got full control over his rival. Farhan exhibited his classic display of long rallies and attacking approach but Safeerullah did not play the way he played against Mansoor in the semi-final. Safeerullah later on also confirmed that he had some pain in his lower back muscles, which caused him the most. "I could not pick some of the easy shorts of Farhan," Safeerullah added. "I had a tough semi-final against Mansoor, who though later on retired hurt as a result of illness, but we played three games and the first won by Mansoor at 10-11 while the other two decided in my favour at 11-7 and 11-7," Safeer added. Farhan was happy the way he played against tired Safeerullah. "I took the first set by 11-8 by closing the other sets at 11-7 and 11-7," Farhan said. "My backhand and some of the nick shorts were worked nicely," he said. When asked about hitting tins, four-time in the first set and three times each in the second and third sets, he said: "I was bit relaxed because of the slow response of Safeerullah but anyway I played my game," proud Farhan, who once reached to 41st in the world ranking. Earlier, in the last night semi-finals Safeerullah got an easy go to the final after Mansoor exit and Farhan defeated Arshad Iqbal Burki by 3-2 in thrilling match. The score was 11-9, 9-11, 11-9, 4-11, and 11-9. A total of 32 players took part in the Tournament organised by NWFP Squash Association. At the end, the chief guest Syed Aqil Shah gave away trophies and cash prizes to the winners and runners-up. In his brief speech Aqil Shah said that the government is working hard to streamline the derailed sports train on its actual track for which certain steps have been designed. He assured the association to organise an International CM Squash Cup for which all financial support would be provided. He said one squash court each in all districts across NWFP has been planned. He said lack of hard working is one of the major reasons of the downfall in the game so he urged upon the players to work hard so they could be able to achieve the lost glory.
