Egypt’s World No.3 Tarek Momen has been crowned the 2019-20 PSA Men’s World Champion after beating New Zealand’s Paul Coll 11-8, 11-3, 11-4.
The number two seed took just 39 minutes to see off the challenge of Kiwi Coll to land his first world title in Doha, Qatar.
Momen was appearing in back-to-back World Championship finals after falling to World No.1 Ali Farag in Chicago eight months ago and had finished as runner-up in all three of the major finals he had appeared in prior to Sunday
There was no stopping Momen in the third game as he closed out the win by an 11-8, 11-3, 11-4 scoreline to lift the biggest prize in men’s squash just two weeks to the day since El Welily fell to World No.4 Nour El Sherbini in the final of the women’s World Championship, held in front of Cairo’s Great Pyramid of Giza.
Momen – who takes home over $45,000 in winnings – becomes the 18th man to get his hands on the iconic trophy, while he is the fourth Egyptian in a row to win the men’s World Championship.
He also qualifies for the season-ending PSA World Tour Finals which will take place in June and pits together the reigning World Champions and PSA Platinum title winners, with the remaining spots going to the highest-placed players on the Road to Egypt Standings, with points on offer at all PSA World Tour events.
