Egyptian Ali Farag, the 26-year-old from Cairo, delighted a partizan crowd inside the Khalifa Tennis & Squash Complex, Doha, today as he defeated Germany’s World No.5 Simon Rösner in straight games to win the 2018 Qatar Classic – to mark his second PSA World Tour Platinum title victory.

Farag’s defence of his maiden Platinum title win, the U.S. Open, was crushed by Rösner last month when the pair met in semi-finals of the 2018 edition of that event, but the World No.2 earned his revenge with a near faultless display to down Rösner 11-9, 11-7, 11-5.

“I’m very happy with the win, and with my week and how I backed up match after match. And I’m really proud with the way I handled the whole week,” said Farag.
