Reda beats top seed Lee in Oslo final
Stig Olsen reports

It was a very well played final that the audience at Myrens had the chance to see live this afternoon.

Both players got onto their games from the start and they followed each other up to 7-6, then Reda started to take the ball earlier and he played some winners to take the first game 11/6.

In the second game the Englishman tried to move Reda more up and down the court. Reda picking up everything, forced Lee to play lower and lower and he hit the tin to many times and lost the second game 11/4

Lee started a bit slowly in the third game and it looked like Reda would close out the match easy. But half way in the game Lee found himself again and succeeded with his short game. He survived first three match balls, then turned the tables to have two opportunities to take the game at 11-10 and 12-11.

But in the end Reda managed to win it 16-14 in a 54 min match.

03-Oct, Semis
Lee and Reda through to final
Stig Olsen reports

Both semi-finals were over in three games as Joe Lee and Mohamed Reda made the final in Oslo.

Lee, the #1 seed was up against his friend and training partner Charles Sharpes in the first semifinal.

Sharpes tried to move Lee around and to play the ball short when ever he got the possibility, but Lee covered the court very well as he has done the whole week.

Lee won it in three straight games 11/5, 11/6,11/4 in a 37 min match.

The second semi final match between Kristian Frost of Denmark and Mohamed Reda of Egypt was a much tougher match.

In the two first games Reda had control, but in the third Frost fought hard and played the ball well around the court.

It was some tough referee decisions against Frost in the end of the game, which cost him the match 11/7 in the third.

02-Oct, Quarters:
Mixed success for the English in Oslo

Joe Lee and Charles Sharpes will contest an all-English semi-final in Oslo after contrasting quarter-final wins - top seed Lee beat Steve Finitsis in three while Sharpes, the third seed, came from two games down to beat Jens Schoor.

There were two upsets in the bottom half of the draw as Kristian Frost edged out fourth seed Piedro Schweertman in five, and Mohamed Reda came from a game down to beat second seed Eddie Charlton in four.

Stig OLsen reports

It was four very well played quarterfinals, and Charles Sharpes fought very hard being 2-0 down against Jens Schoor, but fought back and won it in 5 after a 61 min match.

Frost played tough and kept the ball going and going, and he fought hard to get back after being under 2-1 in games.

Schweertman just missed a volley nick attempt on his match ball in the fifth, Frost Olesen manage to take it start 12-10 after that in a 83 min battle."

Mohamed Reda showed some old class against skilled player Englishman Eddie Charlton, and won 3-1 after losing the first game in a 64 min match - this was the best match of tonights quarterfinals.

01-Oct, Round One:
