Peru’s world number five Diego Elias has overpowered world number three Mohamed El Shorbagy to claim the first Mauritius Open at the RM Club in Pamplemousses.

Elias replicated the same heroics he showed against Coll to defeat England’s number one in straight games and to secure his 11th Professional Squash Association (PSA) title.

Head-to-head form proved to be a factor as Elias built on his previous back-to-back victories against El Shorbagy to dominate the first game 11-2.

It was almost a faultless start due to the score swinging 10-0 in the Peruvian’s favour.

El Shorbagy battled back in the second game but Elias countered his opponent, taking the second game 11-9.

Elias, who concluded the tournament without dropping a game , won the final game 11-8.

"I love being in this atmosphere, it feels like home," Elias said after his victory.

"I want to thank all the team, the club and Greg [Gaultier] for helping to organise this, as well as PSA for having a tournament here.

"I want to thank everyone for organising this huge event.

"I’m really happy to be the first winner of a tournament like this.

"Hopefully, this keeps happening every year and I can come back next year and try and win it again.

"I want to say thanks to Mohamed.

"He has been one of the best ever in squash, and I hope one day I can achieve what he has achieved and be like him when he loses.

"It’s like he is a winner too, I appreciate it a lot, you don’t see it very often."
