Egyptian Women’s World Junior Champion guaranteed!

Egypt’s former champion Nour El Sherbini (pic ri) upset title-holder Amanda Sobhy (pic le) in the semi-finals (11-5, 12-10, 11-9, in 30 minutes) of the Women’s World Junior Championship to deny hosts USA home success in Boston. El Sherbini, the 15-year-old 2009 champion, will face Nour El Tayeb, the 18-year-old who reached the final for the 3rd year in a row after despatching England’s Emily Whitlock in straight games (11-8, 11-3, 11-5, in 25 minutes). The climax will mark the 2nd all-Egyptian world junior squash final in 8 days, after Marwan El Shorbagy took on Mohamed Abouelghar in the men’s individual final in Belgium.
