Commenting his victory Soliman said “I knew from a previous game that Joshua likes to play winners, so I just played solid like I have from the start of the tournament, and hit some errors and that’s what happens when you play solid,” Soliman added “I am very happy with everything, with this as the way to end the season.”

This is the fifth Professional Squash Association (PSA)’s title Soliman wins.

Since the beginning of the tournament, Soliman showed an outstanding performance. The only game which the Egyptian champion lost was that of 8-11 in the final to Masters. Regardless this game, Soliman did not lose a single game throughout the whole championship. In the first round he won over England’s Connor Sheen 3-0 (11-2/11-7/11-4).
