Glory day for the English in
as defending champions bow out
two reigning champions and five former champions in the lineup
the semi-finals promised a great deal, and they duly delivered.
Laura Massaro came from two games down to beat defending
champion Nour El Sherbini, then Sarah-Jane Perry set up
the first all-English women's final for 26 years as she stunned
five-time champion Nicol David.
Nick Matthew put in another tremendous performance to
beat two-time defending champion Mohamed Elshorbagy - ending the
Egyptian's reign as world #1 in the process - and he'll meet
Gregory Gaultier in the final after Ramy Ashour retired
injured after the Frenchman took the first game.
