    Background: For the second year running, Geoff Hunt of Australia and Qamar Zaman of Pakistan will contest the final of the British Open Squash Championship at London's Wembley Arena on Saturday (7 April). Hunt beat Zaman last year. And, to reach this year's final on Saturday, Hunt beat Hiddy Jahan of Pakistan on Thursday (5 April) 9-3, 9-6, 9-10, 9-2.

    SYNOPSIS: From the start of the semi-final, Hunt displayed the form which has taken him to five British open titles, by racing to a 7-0 first game lead against world-ranked number four, Hiddy Jahan. There was never any doubt about the outcome of the match, Hunt always looked the more adventurous and consistent player.

    But, by the third game, Jahan had overcome his initial nerves and fought back with some powerful shots. Jahan played brilliantly at various stages in the match.

    The Pakistani took the third game to 9-9, and gained the extra point to take the game 10-9. It was not enough -- Hunt applied the pressure in the fourth game and won 9-2 to take the match 9-3, 9-6, 9-10, 9-2. In the final, Hunt will be trying to equal the record of Britain's Jonah Barrington, and win the title six times.
