New Zealand's Coll Beats Momen to become 2019 Citigold Wealth Management Squash Classic Champion

22 March 2019Highlights

World No.7 Paul Coll has become the first New Zealander to get his hands on the Citigold Wealth Management Squash Classic trophy after he overcame Egypt's Tarek Momen by a 3-0 scoreline in their final fixture at London's spectacular East Wintergarden last week.

Both players were appearing in their second successive PSA Tour finals, with Coll falling to Peru's Diego Elias in the Troilus Canada Cup last week, while Momen went down to World No.1 Ali Farag in the title decider at the PSA World Championships in Chicago a fortnight ago.

The 26-year-old Kiwi was sublime in the final as he attacked with accuracy into the front of the court and hit a flawless length game to edge the first two games. The third game was all Coll though as Momen struggled with his movement, and the man from Greymouth closed out an 11-8, 12-10, 11-3 victory in 64 minutes to capture the 13th PSA Tour title of his career.

Coll was presented the debutant trophy by the title sponsors' Head of Digital Marketing, Channels and Client Experience, Rekha Rai White and Paul Hodes, Wealth Management Head for Europe, Middle East and Asia at Citi.

'This week has been fantastic, the players have shown great sportsmanship and the energy in the East Wintergarden, Citi and Canary Wharf has been electric. We are delighted to be the 2019 title sponsor of the Citigold Wealth Management Squash Classic', said Rekha Rai White.

Whilst the professionals played each evening, Citigold clients received complimentary prime back wall tickets and hospitality seating in the 1st floor gallery of the East Wintergarden with an unprecedented view of the court. Three lucky winners of the Citigold Pro-Player Prize Draw also received the once in a lifetime opportunity to play a 1 on 1 match with the 2019 Citigold Wealth Management Squash Classic Champion, Paul Coll, Egypt's Fares Dessouky and Germany's Simon Rosner.

"It is such a prestigious tournament, there are such phenomenal names on the trophy and to be a part of that is something special," said Coll afterwards.

"I have played this tournament three times, and I feel like I have played well every year. I love coming here, it is such a well organised event. The atmosphere is amazing, it is packed out every round and I love that."

Coll also had a message for people affected by the recent tragic events in Christchurch and dedicated his win to them.

He said: "To everyone back home in Christchurch, stay strong."

"It is a horrible thing that has happened to New Zealand and that was for you, and for everyone in Christchurch tonight. Stay strong guys."

Coll takes home $17,500 in prize money and his next tournament will be the DPD Open in Eindhoven, which takes place between April 9-14, 2019.
