BritOpen Update: Simpson Secures Second Round Spot


World No.22 Chris Simpson sealed his place in the second round of the Allam British Open, PSA World Series tournament for the first time since 2013 with an extremely hard-fought victory over Egypt’s Zahed Mohamed in Hull.

The lead changed hands multiple times throughout a gladiatorial 84-minute battle with Simpson seeing one-game advantages being extinguished on two occasions. Simpson dug in though and finally managed to overcome his opponent in the fifth to complete a superb 11-5, 12-14, 11-9, 9-11, 11-7 triumph.
