Momen Maintains Momentum In Detroit [view Draw/results]
The top two seeds Adrian Grant and Borja Golan will contest the final of the Motor City Open after securing straight games wins in the semi-finals of the $30,000 PSA Tour squash event at Birmingham Athletic Club in Detroit, USA.
Grant, the favourite from England, brought to an end the 'giant-killing' run of unseeded Egyptian Tarek Momen. The 20-year-old from Cairo upset two higher-seeded Australians, Stewart Boswell and Cameron Pilley, to claim his surprise place in the semis.
But left-handed Londoner Grant was too strong for the promising Egyptian, winning 11-9, 11-9, 12-10 to earn his 21st PSA Tour final appearance - but his first in Detroit at his third attempt.
Second seed Golan, in his maiden Motor City Open appearance, also defeated a surprise opponent, Olli Tuominen. The Flying Finn, a firm favourite in Detroit, earned his place in the last four after upsetting Laurens Jan Anjema, the third seed from the Netherlands.
But the in-form Spanish number one cruised to an 11-5, 11-4, 12-10 win over Tuominen to claim the 26th Tour final appearance of his career.
