England's Eddie Charlton, the 26-year-old World No.58, pulled off one of
the biggest wins of his career to dump top seeded World No.13 Marwan
Elshorbagy out of the 2015 VIII Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta,
International 35 tournament taking place in Guatemala, at the first
Charlton has failed to progress beyond the first round in 11 of his last
13 tournaments but produced an inspired performance to come from
two-games down to see-off the English-based Egyptian player in an epic
five-game encounter, eventually sealing the win 6-11, 4-11, 11-7, 11-7,
11-8 to set up a quarter-finals encounter with Scotland's Alan Clyne.
"I'm really pleased to get the win and with how I played against Marwan
as he's a top player," said Charlton.
"I'm looking forward to the quarter-finals now."
Elsewhere there was also a shock win for Dutchman Piedro Schweertman,
the World No.75 who booked his place in the main draw after coming
through qualification, as he came from a game down to defeat World No.29
Adrian Grant, the number four seed from England.
Schweertman will line up against Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar in the last
eight after he rallied from two games down to see off teenage sensation
Diego Elias amidst an opening day of drama.
