Wowww what can I say about this weeek???

Can’t believe it’s all over and what an amazing response from the Boston Squash Community. I love you all because without you all I won’t be able to host this event. Big thank you to my brother from another mother Jahanzeb Masood who showed me this path and he stands right next to me from day 1. His vision for humanity and squash it’s just unbelievable. Thank you brother for all what you do for all of us!!!!

Now it’s time to tell you the winner of our first Equinox Boston Open and it’s none other than the Egyptian unseeded and HARVARD no.1 player Marwan Tarek who won the whole thing just dropping a single game. He’s a future star and we wish him all the best for his suture events.

Thank you to all the players who came from all over the world and participated in this beautiful event.

Last but not the least my sponsors, Equinox GM Mr. Curtis Duffy and the man of event Saboor Khan who helped me all week as my right hand and because of him I got some relaxed at pressure times 🙂

See you all next year with bigger and better Boston Open!!

Semi-Finals :

Unseeded local Harvard boy from Egypt Marwan Tarek continued his great run in this tournament, beating Addeen Idrakee in four games. In the second Semi Final David Baillargeon from Canada beat Ronald Palomino in straight games.

We started our day with full of Amateurs energy and where we started our Amateurs tournament with 40 players. So good to see Bostonians competing and showing their skills to the next generation who are keen to learn this sport!!!


Quarter-Finals :

Another amazing squash day has ended with full of fun! Love to see an amazing Boston Squash Community enjoying top quality squash.

Today’s best match was between 16 year old Muhammad Humza khan who was so close to create another upset against world no. 114 Addreen Idrakia. At one stage Humza was up 2 games to 1 and 10-9 match ball up in the 4th but couldn’t close it out. He had another chance in the 5th set when he was 11-10 match ball up but couldn’t finish it up. The match lasted 80 mins.

First upset came from an Egyptian unseeded player Marwan Tarek who are studying in Harvard currently and out classed world no. 82 Shawn Delierre from Canada in straight sets.

Second upset we witnessed from Ronald Palomino a Colombian unseeded player who outclassed world no.87 from Canada in straight sets.

Day One : 

What a wonderful morning in Boston with some amazing matches. This is the first squash event in any Equinox Club all over USA and we are very lucky that Boston Equinox got this privilege to host the Men’s international Squash Event for the first time.
