El Shorbagy 3rd contender in the World semis!

"At 9-7 down in the fourth, I just went for it - he was playing more accurately than me at the time," explained Elshorbagy later, describing the sensational four points in a row he won to clinch the match 12-10, 11-6, 2-11, 11-9.

Egyptian Mohamed El Shorbagy repeats his victory from last years World Championship’s semi-final, when he beat James Willstrop.
