PSA report

Amjad advanced from his round one fixture with Spain’s Iker Pajares Bernabeu in bizarre circumstances.

Pajares was 2-1 up in games and 2-0 behind in the fourth game when he went to hit the ball back to himself off the front wall but inadvertently struck Amjad, who then had to go off court due to sustaining an injury.

Amjad was unable to return to court to finish the match and was taken to hospital but, as it was an opponent-inflicted injury, the match was awarded to the Qatar player, and he will take on 2015 World Championship runner-up Omar Mosaad in the next round.
