Sabry Celebrates Crocodile Cup Success

Unseeded Egyptian teenager Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry pulled off a dramatic title triumph in Hong Kong today when he recovered from two games down to beat top seed and local favourite Max Lee in the final of the Crocodile Challenge Cup.

It was Ga Sabry's second successive five-game match in the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre after being taken the full distance by fellow non-seed Harinder Pal Sandhu, from India, in the semi-finals.

A confident performance in the other semi saw Lee, the top-ranked player from Hong Kong, despatch New Zealand's No3 seed Campbell Grayson in four games en-route to the final where he was expected to win the title for the third time in a row.

And the 24-year-old world No34 took a two-game lead over Ga Sabry - ranked 80 places below - as the packed crowd anticipated a home victory.

But Ga Sabry, an 18-year-old from Cairo who won the All Africa Junior Championship in April, dug deep to gain the upper hand - and maintained this advantage through to the decider before closing out the match 11-13, 6-11, 11-9, 11-4, 11-3.

The win marks Ga Sabry's second PSA World Tour title and is likely to see the youngster break into the PSA world top 100 in October.

Sandhu Strikes Out In Hong Kong

There will be unexpected Indian interest in the semi-finals of the Crocodile Challenge Cup in Hong Kong after Harinder Pal Sandhu beat fourth-seeded Australian Matthew Karwalski in today's quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its eighth year at the Hong Kong Squash Centre.

In his first ever meeting with world No59 Karwalski, the 23-year-old from Chennai - ranked almost 50 places lower - won 11-6, 5-11, 11-6, 11-9 to earn a clash with fellow non-seed Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry.

Egyptian Sabry also took four games to earn his semi-final berth, beating Malaysian Elvinn Keo 12-10, 11-6, 7-11, 11-9.

Local interest will be led by Max Lee, the top seed from Hong Kong who outmatched fellow countryman Dick Lau 11-5, 7-11, 11-5, 11-5.

World No30 Lee's hopes of meeting another Hong Kong rival in the next round were thwarted by Campbell Grayson after the third seed from New Zealand beat Hong Kong number two Leo Au 11-6, 11-5, 8-11, 11-7.

 

Keo Conquers Koukal In Crocodile Cup Shock

Unseeded Malaysian Elvinn Keo pulled off one of the biggest wins of his career when he upset No2 seed Jan Koukal in today's opening round of the Crocodile Challenge Cup, the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its eighth year at Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong China.

Just four days after triumphing at the Henderson Open in New Zealand, Czech number one Koukal was clearly not at his best after his 6,000 mile flight from Auckland.

The world No50 took a 2/1 lead, but Keo - ranked more than 60 places lower - kept up the pressure on his tired opponent before closing out the match 7-11, 13-11, 7-11, 11-9, 11-9.

Keo, 24, from Kuala Lumpur, now faces Egyptian Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry, an 18-year-old from Cairo who despatched Indian qualifier Ramit Tandon 12-10, 11-7, 11-4.

A trio of local players dominate the top half of the draw, led by top seed Max Lee. The world No30 from Hong Kong saw off Malaysian left-hander Kam Hing Choong 11-5, 11-7, 11-6 - and will now face fellow countryman Dick Lau, an 8-11, 11-4, 13-11, 11-3 winner over Indian qualifier Ravi Dixit.

Hong Kong's Leo Au also overcame Indian opposition when he defeated qualifier Mahesh Mangaonkar 11-4, 11-6, 1-11, 11-13, 11-4.

Au, the Hong Kong number two, next meets Campbell Grayson, the third seed from New Zealand who ousted Canadian Fred Reid 11-7, 11-6, 11-2.
