Aifa topples top seed
what a start to the day!
Malaysia's Aifa Azman sees a two-game lead
disappear and then comes back from 6-10 down
in the fifth, saving six match balls in all
before taking the match 16-14 in the
Two in a row for Shamy
five-setter in the Boys U13, but this time
the top seed triumphed as Mohamed El Shamy
retained his title in similar dramatic
fashion to how he won it last year..
At 2-1 down and 9-5 down in the fourth it
wasn’t looking good, as he took a second
injury break of the game and looked to be
struggling with leg and back problems. But
he returned to take a rumbustious fourth
game 12-10 - saving a match ball - and was
in control in the decider.
Siv does it this time
five-setter, this time a seesaw battle
between the unflappable top seed Siv
Subramanian, runner-up in lat year's final,
and the excitable Egyptian Hania El Hammamy,
still sporting her forehead bump from
It swung one way then the other, with
whoever got a lead in each of the games
staying ahead until the end, and in the
decider it was the Malaysians who were
cheering the loudest.
Ibrahim wins his first
saving a couple of game balls in a tight
first, top seed Youssef Ibrahim always had
the edge in the next two games of his
all-Egyptian final with Moustafa Montaser.
Habiba the fourth
Next up was another all-Egyptian final, and
once again it was the top seed who triumphed
in straight games.
The irresistible force that is Habiba
Mohamed was too strong for Hana Basem as she
stormed through to collect her fourth BJO
title in a row.
Suliman too strong for Ng
collected their fourth title - with one more
guaranteed to follow - when Boys U17 top
seed Youssef Soliman beat Malaysia’s Ng Eain
Yow - last year’s U15 winner - in four
The Egyptian looks strong as he took a 10-5
lead in the first, and although Ng closed
that gap and took a close second game,
Suliman was ion top again in the next two
games to claim his first title.
It's five for Yathreb and for
was a repeat of their 2010 U15 final, but
for Yathreb Adel the Girls U19 final was a
sixth in a row, and she repeated her 2010
win over Mariam Metwally - the top seed - in
four tough, uncompromising, tense, and
fiercely contested games.
Adel edged the first two after early
deficits, but couldn’t do the same in the
third as Metwally pulled one back. Adel was
always just ahead in the fourth though,
finally clinching her fifth BJO title in
just under an hour.
Ahmad claims the

the Boys U19 trophy, the Drysdale Cup, as
Peru’s Diego Elias, the U17 winner last
year, took on Jordan’s Ahmad Alsaraj.
forged ahead in the early stages of both the
first two games and held on to those
advantages, and although Elias rallied to
take the third, it was the Jordanian who was
on top from the start of the fourth,
capitalising on a 7-1 advantage against a
tiring Elias to take the game 11-3 and
with it the title.
