Reda Defeats Lee In Oslo

Egyptian World No.58 Mohamed Reda produced a scintillating display to defeat Joe Lee in the final of the Grays Norwegian Open, PSA M15 event with a stunning 3-0 victory.

Reda had already stunned second seed Eddie Charlton in the quarter-final before seeing off Kristian Frost Olesen in the next round. Lee meanwhile saw off Jonas Daehler, Steven Finitsis and compatriot Charles Sharpes without dropping a game en-route to the final.

It was Reda though who started the stronger of the two with a punishing barrage of attacking squash laying the foundations for his 11-6 victory in the first game.

He kept up the onslaught in the second game as Lee, appearing in his first PSA World Tour final of the year, struggled to gain a foothold in the match.

Game three was the closest of the lot as Lee pushed Reda to the limit in a tightly-contested affair. The Egyptian just managed to edge it and completed an 11-6, 11-4, 16-14 victory to lift his 13th PSA World Tour title.

Seeds through to Quarter Finals

The top eight seeds of the Grays Norwegian Open, PSA M15 tournament eased through to the quarter-final stage.

Number one seed Joe Lee sealed his last-eight berth with a straight games victory over lucky loser Jonas Daehler. The 25-year-old Englishman dominated proceedings at the Myrens Sportssenter to complete an 11-2, 11-6, 11-6 triumph.

Lee will go up against Steven Finitsis in the next round after the South African blitzed Geoffrey Demont in three.

Lee’s compatriot Eddie Charlton has also advanced to the quarter-final thanks to a 3-1 victory against Joel Makin. Welshman Makin pressed hard throughout the four games but Charlton proved to be too strong as he claimed an 11-9, 11-3, 2-11, 11-4 triumph. Mohamed Reda lies in wait for Charlton in the next round after the World No.58 dispatched Mark Fuller.

Elsewhere, Charles Sharpes has progressed to the next stage courtesy of a 3-0 win over fellow Englishman Angus Gillams. Jens Schoor will be his opponent there after securing a positive result against Adam Murrills despite flirting with elimination as he snuck the victory in five games.

Piedro Schweertman and Kristian Frost Olesen will contest the other quarter-final fixture after respective wins against wildcard Adrian Ostbye and Joe Green.
