Teenage Youssef Soliman won his first PSA title as he beat Jamaica’s Cristopher Binnie 3-0 in the final.  

Youssef Soliman managed to win his first PSA title after coming all the way from the qualifying rounds to defy all the odds and win the $10K title in Aberdeen.

Soliman managed to beat his Egyptian teammate Karim Ali in the quarterfinals, in a match which lasted 73 minutes. Later on, he managed to beat the Indian 3rd seed Mahesh Mangaonkar in a grueling contest which was 100 minutes long.

The Egyptian young Pharaoh managed to beat his Jamaican counterpart Christopher Binnie, in a match that lasted for 33 minutes, in which Youssef dominated and won 11-4, 11-4, 11-5, to win his first title in his professional squash career.

Egypt will be expecting a lot from Soliman, who managed to win the British Junior Open last January, as well as finishing second in the last World Junior Squash tournament.
