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
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
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.
