MATCH FOUR | (2) Mohamed Abouelghar (EGY) beat 3-1 (8) Mohamed Reda (EGY) 11-6, 10-12, 11-3, 11-6 (50 mins)
In the last match of the night, one that came after the Muller Ghosal marathon - the crowd had thinned. A fairly large number of enthusiastic juniors were in the arena well past their bedtimes. Abouelghar showed more urgency as he took the ascendancy. Reda, an experienced war horse showed some intelligent shot selection and creditably drew level winning the second over extra points. He came out with even more urgency quickly re-establishing his position on the T, winning the third rather handily. Abouelghar maintained the consistency to close the fourth 11-6, to take his spot with Muller in tomorrow's semi final Abouelghar paid tribute to his teammate saying he was one of the cleverest players on the tour and how he like other young Egyptians had learnt much from him over the years.
A long night of some very good squash in Mumbai.
