Yousry dashes home hopes

Hopes of a repeat home champion were dashed as 15-year-old Egyptian Amina Yousry came from a game down to beat defending champion and home favourite Maria Toorpakay in a four-game semi-final.

"I feel over the moon," said Amina. "Maria is a very tough player especially in front of her home crowd. It was very difficult to beat her. Last year in the 2nd Bahria Town Tournament was my first Senior PSA Event. I did qualify for first time for a 15K US-Dollar Tournament & I am very excited.

"I congratulate the organizers for such a wonderful event. Thanks to the Pakistani Supporters my parents and my coaches."

Maria reflected:  "I am very disappointed, people had very high expectation from me. It was good match, loss and win part of game. I have to learn from my mistakes and I will overcome my short comings for British open, I am said that I could not defend my title."

In the final Yousry will meet Liu Tsz-Ling, the top seed who won her all-Hong Kong clash with Tong Tsz-Wing in straight games.

This is first time I qualify for $15k PSA Tournament." said Liu, "it's been a very good experience."
