Mon 23rd April, Day SIX:
Round Two (B)
Edition of #ELGOUNASQUASH continues today with 8 second round matches as
Round Two concludes (and
it's Day Two of the MASTERS).
Waters and Au in Day
The quarter-finalists in the bottom half of the draws were decided on
Day Six, with Alison Waters and Annie Au producing big
upsets in the women's matches.
Waters got the better of fifth seed Nouran Gohar in a tense five-setter,
while Hong Kong's Au also needed five games as she beat Commonwealth
Games champion Joelle King.
Egyptian opposition in the quarters, Waters up against third seed
Nour El Tayeb who got past Hani El Hammamy in three tough games, Au
meets second seed Raneem El Welily who got the better of CWG
silver medalist SJ Perry in four games.
No upsets in
the men's matches as Ali Farag and Tarek Momen set up al
all-Egyptian quarter-fial as they impressively beat Borja Golan and
Miguel Rodriguez came through a titanic tussle with Cesar
Salazar, winning 18-16 in an action-packed fourth game. He'll face
defending champion Gregory Gaultier, who beat qualifier Chris
Simpson in straight games, in the bottom quarter-final.
