Hany Ibrahim Ahmed claimed the third WSA title of her young career
and second title in 2013 with a four game win over third seed Tong
Tsz-Wing in the final. The 17 year old Egyptian already tasted
success in Malaysia earlier this year at the NSC Series No.2 event.
After easy wins in her first round and quarter finals Hany Ibrahim
Ahmed was faced with the task of beating top seed and world number
22 Joey Chan. Chan, whose career high ranking of 16, looked on paper
like it might be too much for Hany Ibrahim Ahmed but the Egyptian
had other ideas and duly knocked out the top seed in four games.
On the other side of the draw Tong Tsz-Wing looked like her ranking
rise to no.47 was no fluke. Tsz-Wing stormed through her first round
and quarter finals and then overwhelmed second seed Lucie Fialova in
straight games to reach her second WSA final of the year.
As with her semi final Hany Ibrahim Ahmed won the first game of the
final, only to drop the second game before holding off Tsz-Wing to
win in four games. Hany Ibrahim Ahmed will see a possible spot in
the world's top 50 in next month's ranking which will make her the
youngest player in the top 50.
