World champion Ramy Ashour won a seventh successive Kuwait Cup on Thursday, beating England’s world number four James Willstrop, 6-11, 11-8, 11-3, 11-3.

Unbeaten since May last year, the 25-year-old Egyptian also claimed the 30th title of his career and has now won 36 matches in a row.

This year, world number one Ashour has already captured the first three World Series events, adding the Kuwait title to victories in New York’s Tournament of Champions and the North American Open.
