In the third match, the Egyptian team secured the semi-finals spot after Raneem El-Welily defeated Reeham Sedky 2-0 (12-10, 11-5).
“The last time we played in Hong Kong, I lost to her [Amanda] so this time, I was completely focused on the first game as I really wanted to win today for the team, for everyone else,’’ Nour El-Sherbini said in her post-match interview.
“Last time, we lost in the semis so hopefully luck will be on our side and it will be different here and we’ll all try to give 100%.’’
It’s worth mentioning that Egypt advanced to the quarter-finals in the third day after defeating Mexico 3-0. The Egyptian team was represented by Raneem El-Welily, Nouran Gohar, and Omneya Abdel Kawy who won all their games.
