El Hindi Retains Heliopolis Title

Despite being tested for more than 80 minutes for the third time in the event, top seed Wael El Hindi successfully defended his title in the Rotary Heliopolis Squash Open when he beat fellow Egyptian Karim Darwish in a five-game final of the $41,000 PSA Tour event at the National Stadium in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

 

Second seed Darwish, the world No11 from Cairo, twice led in the match - but was unable to contain his compatriot ranked a single place higher. 

 

El Hindi had been stretched for 90 minutes just 24 hours earlier, against fellow countryman Mohammed Abbas - but triumphed 5-11, 11-7, 7-11, 11-5, 11-8 in 84 minutes against Darwish to earn the fifth PSA Tour title of his career, and his third on home soil.

 

 

Hisham Assures Local Line-Up In Heliopolis Semis

Sixth seed Hisham Mohd Ashour caused a notable upset in the quarter-finals of the Rotary Heliopolis Squash Open to set up an all-Egyptian semi-final line-up in the $41,000 PSA Tour event at the National Stadium in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

 

The 25-year-old from Cairo, the older brother of teenage star Ramy Ashour, twice came from behind to conquer Spain's No4 seed Borja Golan 8-11, 11-10 (5-3), 5-11, 11-7, 11-5 in an 86-minute marathon.

 

Hisham goes on to face fellow Cairo-based compatriot Karim Darwish, the No2 seed, for a place in the final. Darwish, runner-up in the event two years ago, beat Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema, the No5 seed who was runner-up last year, 11-10 (3-1), 11-5, 11-3.

 

Top seed Wael El Hindi is on course to retain the title he won for the first time in 2006. The 27-year-old world No10 from Giza despatched compatriot Omar Elborolossy, a qualifier, 11-6, 11-3, 11-6, and now takes on third seed Mohammed Abbas - who also beat a fellow countryman, Omar Mosaad, 11-2, 11-8, 3-11, 11-4.
