[2] Moustafa El Sirty 3-1 [1] Bernat Jaume (ESP)  6-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-8 (54m)

Moustafa El Sirty have claimed the title at the Capra Baerum Open, with the latter taking a Tour-leading eighth victory of the year.

Moustafa had already won seven titles over the course of 2021, with his ranking jumping over 30 places to be sat as the World No.51 coming into the tournament.

He was the No.2 seed behind Bernat Jaume at the Challenger 10 level event at Lysaker Squash & Fitness, and received a bye through to the second round where he got the better of Kuwait’s Ammar Altamimi in a four-game contest.

He then had to fight from behind to defeat England’s Nick Wall in a five-game battle which lasted over an hour, before overcoming Hong Kong’s Tsz Kwan Lau to make it into the final.

El Sirty came across top seed Bernat Jaume in the final, and after losing the first game, the young Egyptian batted back into the contest, and went on to win in four, claiming his eighth title of the calendar year.
