21-year-old fourth seed made her breakthrough in the semi-finals of the
WSA Tour 5 event when she downed event favourite Eun Chan Ahn,
the world No61 from South Korea.
Unseeded Chu, 19, also pulled off a notable semi-final upset when she
defeated home hope Rachel Arnold, the No3 seed from Malaysia, in
four games to reach the first Tour final of her career
after three previous runners-up finishes in Tour finals, it was fourth
time lucky for Meguid when the world No81 from Cairo despatched Chu
11-6, 11-8, 11-9 to clinch the title.
