R2: Hania/Hana, Siva/Salma

[3] Hania El Hammamy (EGY) 3-0 Hana Ramadan (EGY)  11-2, 11-5, 11-8 (29m)


“I’ve never played against Hana, so it was a little bit tricky to play an Egyptian. I’m glad I was able to get through.

“I tried as much as I could to get in the zone after the World Championships.

“We didn’t have much time recover and regroup, so I tried to take this match as if it was a practice match and release everything that happened [at the World Championships]. I managed to do that and played well.

“I’m definitely looking forward to playing on the glass court, playing in El Gouna is amazing, it’s always exciting and I always look forward to coming back here. Hopefully, after tomorrow, I will be ready for another match.”
