El Shorbagy brothers qualify to Windy City Open final
In Chicago, Marwan El Shorbagy knocked out fellow Egyptian Ali Farag after beating him in 48 minutes 3-0 (11-6, 13-11, 11-7), while his brother Mohamed was able to defeat Tarek Momen 3-0 (11-9, 11-7, 11-5) in 45 minutes, which means that the two brothers will face each other for a chance to win the Windy City Open 2018 title.
Farag’s wife and World No.3 Nour El Tayeb, however, secured her spot in the women’s final after defeating England’s Sarah-Jane Perry in the tournament’s semi-final after a thrilling 73-minute game as she won three sets of five 3-2 (11-6, 11-9, 3-11, 14-16, 11-7).
An all-Egyptian Women’s final was possible, as Raneem El Welily faced New Zeland’s Joelle King, yet King defeated the Egyptian Pharaoh 3-2 (7-11, 11-7, 7-11, 12-10) in 60 minutes.
