Rotary Heliopolis Open 2010
11-16 Apr, Cairo, $42k

17-Apr, Final:

Gregory Gaultier bt Omar Mosaad 8/11 , 11/2 , 11,6 , 11/5

Mighty Mosaad Ditches Darwish
In Heliopolis Upset


Egypt's Omar Mosaad recorded the best win of his career in his home city Cairo when he beat top-seeded compatriot Karim Darwish in five games in the semi-finals of the Rotary Heliopolis Open to claim an unexpected place in the final.

The 22-year-old's sensational victory marks Mosaad's first win over one his country's 'big three' - Ramy Ashour, Amr Shabana and Karim Darwish, the illustrious Egyptian trio which currently occupies three of the top four places in the world rankings.

Twice third seed Mosaad took the lead over the former world number one, and twice Darwish dug deep to draw level. And the all-Cairo clash went the full distance in the decider. But it was underdog Mosaad who ultimately prevailed, winning 12-10, 1-11, 11-4, 7-11, 12-10 to reach the tenth - and biggest, by far - PSA Tour title of his career.

Mosaad will face second-seeded Frenchman Gregory Gaultier in the final. The only non-Egyptian in the last four, Gaultier had to fight back from a game down to overcome fourth seed Hisham Ashour 7-11, 11-2, 11-4, 11-4.

The 27-year-old from Aix-en-Provence is making his second final appearance in a row after making the climax of the ISS Canary Wharf Classic in London last month.

Gaultier, who topped the world rankings for the first time last November, is marking the 38th Tour final of his career - but is looking for his first ranking title success since winning the Tournament of Champions in January 2009.

14-Apr, Quarters:
Darwish & Gaultier on course in Heliopolis

Former world number ones Karim Darwish and Gregory Gaultier remain on course to meet in the final of the Rotary Heliopolis Open after straight games' wins in the quarter-finals at Heliopolis Sporting Club in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

Darwish, the top seed from Cairo looking to win the long-established title for the first time, defeated top-ranked German Simon Rosner, the No7 seed, 11-4, 11-8, 11-6.

The world number four, who topped the rankings for all but one month of last year, now faces Cairo compatriot Omar Mosaad.

The 22-year-old ended Nicolas Mueller's run, beating the unseeded Swiss star 11-5, 7-11, 11-5, 11-4.

Gregory Gaultier will be hoping to deny the crowd an all-Cairo final when he takes on fourth seed Hisham Mohd Ashour in the other semi-final. The 27-year-old Frenchman beat fifth-seeded Egyptian Mohd Ali Anwar Reda 11-6, 11-5, 12-10.

Ashour faced sixth seed Tom Richards - and had to recover from a game down before defeating the Englishman 7-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-7.
