DPD Open Squash, Eindhoven, the Netherlands (April 9 – 14)

Egypt’s Ali Farag and Raneem El Welily, the world’s current number one male and female squash players, won the inaugural DPD Open Squash championship after claiming respective wins over compatriots Mohamed El Shorbagy and Nour El Sherbini. El Welily claimed her second successive title after her win last month at the Black Ball Squash Open. Farag extended his dominance over El Shorbagy with a 3-1 win. The first game looked as though it would set the tempo for the rest of the match, reaching a tense tie-break won by El Shorbagy.

Final: [1] Ali Farag (EGY) bt [2] Mohamed El Shorbagy (EGY) 3-1: 11-13, 11-6, 11-4, 11-4,
[1] Raneem El Welily (EGY) bt [2] Nour El Sherbini (EGY) 3-2: 10-12, 9-11, 11-8, 11-8, 11-8,

Zinedine Zidane has dismissed suggestions Karim Benzema will be leaving Real Madrid this summer. Speculation has grown that the French striker will be moved on as Zidane reshapes a squad that has under-achieved at home and abroad this season. But speaking on April 15, Zidane was full of praise for Benzema, saying that he offers something different to many forwards.
