El Shorbagy and Abouelghar to contest World Junior Title!

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.
