Day 1 U13 ROUND UP


I counted 3 matches going against seedings. Ayad Hany lost the first game against Youssef Bahgat Waheed but won the next three, 6-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-7 and got to play top seed Hamdy Ehab Hamdy, lost in 3 (in an early round two match).
Also what a battle between Youssef Mohamed Mahmoud [33/64] and Aly Ezzat Mokhtar [17/32], with the former clinching the 5th 11/9!
Yassin El Atmas [33/64] also created the upset, ousting another Yassin funnily enough, Ayman Mohamed in 4 games.
The rest of the draw went according to plans….


In that category, we have 4 groups, and only 2 upsets, Zeina Moataz [9/16] taking the better of [3/4] Farah Ibrahim Ali 11-7 11-6 11-6, and Jude Tantawy [17/32] representing the U.S.A., ousting Egypt Nour Hatem [9/16] in one of the toughest matches of the day, 11-13, 11-6, 14-12, 12-10 (33m)
More news at the end of the day as they keep playing till late tonight…
