Tournament HistoryEdit

He first showed his mettle at the 2012 IMET Open, claiming the title after being seeded eighth for the tournament. Lobban broke the world's top 100 in March 2013 and his fifth PSA World Tour title came at the Steel City Open, beating George Parker in the final.

It was in his home-country of Scotland that Lobban lifted his first PSA M10 crown when he beat Joel Hinds in the final in April 2015.

He went on to reach the final of the Victorian Open three months later before losing to Ryan Cuskelly and he followed that up with a quarter-final finish at the Kolkata International which enabled him to reach the world’s top 40 for the first time.

2016 brought a number of early-round exits for Lobban which helped him consolidate his place in the world’s top 40 in the World Rankings for the majority of 2016. Lobban then reached the final of both the Chicago Open and Arnold Homes Tring Open in 2017, losing out narrowly to Campbell Grayson and England’s Declan James. Lobban was sidelined for seven months of the season after he suffered a hamstring tear during his final clash with Grayson. However, the Scotsman soon rediscovered his form when he returned to the squash court in May, reaching six finals and claiming three titles – including wins at the Vitesse Stortford Classic, the NZ International Classic and the Invercargill Open.[1]
