18-Sep, Quarters:
Gohar grabs semi-final place

Top seeds Joey Chan and Nour El Tayeb continued to impress as they reached the semi-finals, and sixth-seeded Lauren Briggs ended the run of Habiba Mohamed, but it was young Egyptian Nouran Gohar who again grabbed the headlines at Alexandria Sporting Club.

Having already beaten Emily Whitlock, Gohar, the reigning British Junior Open U15 champion, scored a second stunning upset as she beat fourth seed Aisling Blake in straight games!

17-Sep, Round One:
Qualifiers advance in Alex

While top seeds Joey Chan and Nour El Tayeb advanced safely enough to the quarter-finals, there were a couple of Atlantis Open upsets that delighted the home crowd at Alexandria Sporting Club in Egypt.

Nouran Gohar, the reigning British Junior Open U15 champion, produced a stunning upset as she beat sixth seed Emily Whitlock while Habiba Mohamed, the reigning British Junior Open U13 champion, also progressed at English expense as third seed Emma Beddoes was forced to retire with injury at 3-all in the third game.
