R2 : Asal beats Mosaad

[4] Mostafa Asal (EGY) 3-0 Omar Mosaad (EGY) 11-5, 11-3, 11-4 (33m)


“I’m super proud that I’m playing in front of my country and my friends. It gives me lots of confidence and I have won finals on this court. Step-by-step, match-by-match, I’m going to focus on the next one.

“Omar is an unbelievable player and a legend for Egyptian squash. I improved a lot of my basic game because of him. All the time, me, my father, my coaches, watched him and how he attacks with volleys to the back corners. I’m really thankful to share a court with him for a few years and I’m so glad that I managed to win today.

“Lots of fans are coming to the museum. I’m playing for the fans and for my country and my team, Al Ahly Club. It’s a dream to play at the museum. We have an army of fans here in Egypt and I think all of the other players will be a bit worried!”
