Mohamed Abouelghar (pic) and Marwan El Shorbagy will contest the final of the WSF Men’s World Junior Individual Championship in Herentals (Belgium) in the 2nd successive all-Egyptian final of the championship in its 18th year. Abouelghar, a 5/8 seed, produced the upset of the tournament when he beat top seed Amr Khaled Khalifa 9-11, 11-8, 3-11, 11-7, 11-9 in 70 minutes – denying the defending champion the chance to become only the 3rd player in history to win the title for a 2nd time. Marwan El Shorbagy is one match away from making squash history by becoming the 1st brother of any world individual title to become a world champion. The 17-year-old – whose older brother Mohamed El Shorbagy is a 2-times winner of this trophy – took just three games to despatch fellow Egyptian Mazen Hesham Ga Sabry, a 9/16 seed, 11-6, 11-9, 11-9 in 34 minutes.
