El Torky & Khalifa Claim Egyptian Double In Cairo

 

Amr Khaled Khalifa and Heba El Torky made it a home nation double in the Egyptian Circuit No1 after winning the finals of the inaugural international squash circuit event at the Shooting Club in Cairo.

 

Unseeded Khalifa continued his giant-killing run through the men's PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event by despatching second-seeded fellow countryman Omar Abdel Aziz in straight games.

 

The reigning world junior champion from Cairo removed the fourth seed in the quarter-finals, then defeated 27-year-old Aziz, the world No42, 11-7, 11-9, 11-7.

 

The triumph marks Khalifa's first Tour title success on home soil but the seventh of his brief career to date and is sure to see the 18-year-old improve on his current PSA world ranking of 78.

 

The final of the women's WISPA World Tour 8 event was a more dramatic affair, in which South African outsider Siyoli Waters twice led the Egyptian favourite in a bid to win her maiden Tour title.

 

But El Torky, the 20-year-old world No36 from Alexandria, held her nerve to keep fourth-seeded Waters at bay. 

 

And after 59 minutes, the Egyptian clinched victory over her 28-year-old opponent, winning 6-11, 11-8, 9-11, 11-4, 11-5.

 

The triumph marks Heba El Torky's fourth Tour title and extends the Alexandria star's unbeaten record in WISPA finals.

Siyoli Spoils Egyptian Party In Cairo

 

South African Siyoli Waters put paid to all-Egyptian finals in the Egyptian Circuit No1 after upsetting second seed Kanzy Emad El-Defrawy in the women's semi-finals of the WISPA World Tour 8 squash event at the Shooting Club in Cairo.

 

After dropping the first game, the fourth seed from Cape Town survived a tie-break second game before going on to claim an impressive 7-11, 13-11, 11-3, 4-11, 11-7 victory over El-Defrawy, the world No41 from Cairo.

 

Now in the second Tour final of her career and her second of the year world No64 Waters will face favourite Heba El Torky, the world No36 from Alexandria.

 

El Torky also had to come back from a game down to beat England's third seed Emily Whitlock, the 17-year-old recently-crowned European junior champion, 8-11, 11-5, 11-2, 11-3.

 

The 20-year-old Egyptian is celebrating her fourth WISPA Tour final and will be looking to extend her unbeaten record in finals to date.

 

Unseeded Amr Khaled Khalifa will face second seed Omar Abdel Aziz in the final of the men's PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event after the Egyptian pair survived contrasting semi-finals.

 

Khalifa, the reigning world junior champion from Cairo, needed 54 minutes to overcome Giza-based 23-year-old Omar Abdel Meguid, also unseeded, 6-11, 11-5, 11-2, 11-2.

 

The 18-year-old is celebrating the eighth Tour final appearance of his career but, surprisingly perhaps, his first on home soil.

 

Aziz, the 27-year-old world No42, made it into the final after just a few points into the second game of the other semi when his Italian opponent Amr Swelim retired injured with the score at 11-2, 1-3.

 

The brief victory takes Aziz into his 10th PSA Tour final.

 

Men's Seeds Suffer In Cairo

 

Omar Abdel Aziz became the lone men's seed to make it through to the last four of the Egyptian Circuit No1 after beating fellow Egyptian Wael Farag in the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at the Shooting Club in Cairo.

 

The 27-year-old second seed from Cairo despatched 21-year-old Farag 11-5, 11-6, 11-3 in just 28 minutes and will now face Amr Swelim for a place in the final.

 

The Cairo-born Italian ousted Egyptian qualifier Mohamed Abouelghar 11-8, 14-12, 11-5.

 

But Omar Abdel Meguid pulled off the biggest upset when he overcame favourite Karim Abdel Gawad 13-11, 5-11, 11-7, 8-11, 11-9 in a 113-minute marathon.

 

Unseeded Meguid, ranked more than 60 places lower than his opponent, now takes on fellow countryman Amr Khaled Khalifa.

 

Unseeded Khalifa, the reigning World Junior Champion, stunned fourth seed Andrew Wagih Shoukry 11-6, 11-7, 11-8.

 

Order was restored in the women's WISPA World Tour 8 event when the four top seeds survived the quarter-finals in straightforward style.

 

Favourite Heba El Torky faced her sister Nouran El Torky for the second time on the WISPA Tour but again kept her younger sibling at bay with a 10-12, 11-7, 12-10, 11-6 victory.

 

The 20-year-old from Alexandria now faces England's newly-crowned European Junior champion Emily Whitlock after the 17-year-old third seed defeated 18-year-old Egyptian Salma Hany 11-9, 11-8, 11-3.
