Shorbagy downs Willstrop for World Championship final!

Egyptians Rule In World Semis In Doha
13 Dec 12

The final of the Qatar PSA World Squash Championship will be an all-Egyptian affair for the third time in the last five years after underdogs Mohamed El Shorbagy and Ramy Ashour triumphed against higher-ranked Englishmen in today's semi-finals of the premier PSA World Tour championship in Doha.

Boasting a $325,000 prize-fund, the second biggest in the sport's history, the Qatar PSA World Championship is being hosted by Qatar for the third time and being held at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex.

El Shorbagy, aged 21 and the youngest player in the world top 25, faced top seed James Willstrop in the opening semi-final. The 29-year-old world number one from Leeds boasted a 7/1 career head-to-head record over the young Alexandrian - but had been stretched to five games in a 90-minute US Open clash only two months ago.

It was one-all after 46 minutes - and it took a further 34 minutes to resolve the third game, El Shorbagy taking it 14-12 after his third game-ball.

But the experienced Willstrop, eager to win the title for the first time, battled back from 2-4 down in the fourth to draw level.

The favourite led up to 8-7 in the decider, but it was El Shorbagy who then held his nerve to win the next four points in a row to clinch the match 11-9, 9-11, 14-12, 4-11, 11-8 after 112 minutes - and earn his maiden appearance in a world final.

"Before anything I want to hug my mother," the eighth seed Shorbagy (le) told event MC Robert Edwards (in Arabic) before charging off the court and into the arms of his weeping mother.
