ISLAMABAD - Pakistan top squash player Farhan Zaman vowed to exhibit his skills in the upcoming $15,000 PSA Kuwait Championship to be participated by the world's top players.
Talking to The Nation, Farhan said: “Now I have achieved the first task of grabbing the top spot in the national squash rankings and my next goal is to break into top 20. I am working hard on that plan and I have participated in USA and other PSA events. I am grateful to the Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) senior vice president Razi Nawab, the secretary and coach Jamshed Gul Khan for giving me countless opportunities and sending me for the PSA events which helped me a lot.”
Farhan further said: “The training which has been organised by the PSF is proving very beneficial for every participant. I have never witnessed such a high-profile camp in the recent past, which shows the federation’s seriousness in preparing well for the mega events and help them in regaining lost squash glory.”
“I will leave to play in Kuwait and will face British Junior Champion there in the first round. I am sure I will definitely win that encounter,” he added.
Toa query regarding PSA’s ban lifting from international players to take part in Pakistani events, Farhan replied: “It is definitely good news for every player and the squash crazy nation, who witnessed great Jahangir Khan, Jansher Khana and other squash legends playing in front of them.” “It will enhance our game level and provide chance to youngsters to play and learn a great deal while playing alongside one of the bests in the business. I am already waiting for the time to arrive when we get a chance to reflex muscles and show Pakistani players have what it takes to excel at the top,” he concluded.
