World Junior Individual Squash C’ship ’19: QF Day; 6 Semi-Finalists Egyptian

MALAYSIA: The Quarter Final matches of the 2019 WSF World Juniors Individual Squash championship were held at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

As expected Egyptians remained dominant in both the Men’s and Women’s categories. In both of the categories, out of the total 8 Semi finalists 6 (3 Women and 3 Male) are Egyptians.

The remaining two are an Englishman Lewis Anderson and a Malaysian Aifa Azman female player who defeated English woman Elise Lazarus in straight games. For Aifa it was also a revenge as she had lost to Elise in their last 2017 encounter, which was the quarter-finals of the British Junior Open.
