Magic Marwan outs Mosaad in Cairo upset!

Clearly inspired by his new status as world junior champion, Egyptian teenager Marwan El Shorbagy (pic) pulled off his 3rd successive giant-killing victory in the Sportsmax Open when he defeated top-seeded compatriot Omar Mosaad to reach the final in Cairo. After 2 rounds of qualifying, the 17-year-old began his main draw run by beating India’s experienced Siddharth Suchde, before despatching 3rd-seeded Pakistani Aamir Atlas Khan in the quarters. Only 4 months after losing in straight games to world No14 Mosaad, El Shorbagy recovered from a game down to beat his opponent 4-11, 11-4, 11-8, 11-8 in 54 minutes. El Shorbagy will now face 2nd seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in the final, who was tested for 81 minutes before getting the better of unseeded compatriot Omar Abdel Aziz 11-13, 11-5, 11-9, 11-2.
