Hany Ibrahim Ahmed wins in Malaysia

Hany Ibrahim Ahmed wins in Malaysia

Salma 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.
