Nour defeated Joshna Chinappa of India in 3 straight games in 26 minutes (11/4, 11/4, 11/4)
“I knew that Joshna had a hard match yesterday,” said Tayeb, “so I tried to make it fast from the start and it seemed to work. Joshna’s a fighter, she came back a little but I managed to close out each game”
