Both of Mexico's Salazar twins won their first round matches in the men's tournament on day two of the Professional Squash Association (PSA) Oracle Netsuite Open in San Francisco. 

Arturo Salazar, the older of the 31-year-olds by two minutes, came from behind to beat Qatar's Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi 6-11, 11-3, 11-7 at the Bay Club.

His brother Cesar also needed to bounce back from a slow start as he came through 4-11, 11-8, 11-5 against home American player Faraz Khan.

"Abdulla is a top player, so I tried to just play the match point-by-point," said Arturo.

"I knew I had to fight, so I just tried to run and tried to finish it, and I got it done."

Cesar added: "I came from behind and I felt I had to win, but tomorrow I need to be a lot better. 

"Faraz is a good player. 

"He has improved a lot, but I still need to play better squash tomorrow."

In other men's matches today, Scotland's Alan Clyne beat England's George Parker 11-9, 11-6.
