Day SEVEN : Semi-Finals

It’s semi-finals time in El Gouna, with four matches on the glass court at the Cultural and Conference Centre.

Top seed Nour El Sherbini kept her bid for a seventh title of the season going as she came from a game down to beat Tinne Gilis. In the final she’ll face perennial rival Nouran Gohar, who extender her run of 3-0 wins over Gina Kennedy. 

The men’s final will be a repeat of last week’s Black Ball climax after top seed Ali Farag made it 14 wins in a row over Tarek Momen and Mostafa Asal ended the run of Karim Abdel Gawad, also in three games.
