It's all Egypt in SKY Quarter-finals

An Egyptian champion of the Banque Misr Sky Open 2013 was guaranteed as home players won all four quarter-finals at the Sky Resort in New Cairo (mind you, three of the matches were all-Egyptian so it's not that much of a surprise!).

First up Marwan El Shorbagy beat Fares Dessouki, who had upset third seed Omar Mosaad in the previous round, in straight games,

"It hasn't been a great start to the season for me," admitted Marwan, "so I'm really pleased to reach the semis and looking forward to producing my best performance tomorrow."

Top seed Karim Darwish also came through in three as he beat Zahed Mohamed with none of the drama of his comeback from two down last night.

"I played a much better match today," admitted the 2009 champion, "happy to be in the semis and still fresh."

Mohamed El Shorbagy, fresh from his Qatar Classic success, joined his younger brother in the semis as he won a thrilling fast-paced encounter with Mazen Hesham in four games.

"I expected fast and furious, and I got fast and furious," said a relieved Shorbagy. "The cold conditions would normally suit me but tonight they suited him more!"

Finally Omar Abdel Meguid upset fourth seed Alister Walker in four to make it all Egypt in the semi-finals. 

"I had a game plan, I stuck to it, and it worked!" said Omar.
