Squash: Ashour survives to British Open quarterfinals
Three Egyptians — Ramy Ashour, Amr Shabana and Mohamed El-Shorbagy — advance in London to the quarterfinals of the British Open for squash
Published in Ahram Online on 17 - 05 - 2012

Three Egyptian men have qualified for the quarterfinals of the Allam British Open 2012 for squash taking place in London, competing for $150,000 in prizes.
Fourth-seeded Ramy Ashour will face compatriot Amr Shabana, fifth-seeded, while seventh-seeded Mohamed El-Shorbagy will clash with No 1 seed, England's James Willstrop.
Ashour eliminated Englishman Daryl Selby, beating him 3-1, before surviving against Borja Golan of Spain 3-2 in Round 2.
"Mentally and physically I was two paces behind Borja," explained the former world number one (pictured with Golan) later. "Footwork, movement, racket preparation — everything — he was so much better than me. That's the first time I have played him and he played incredibly well at the start.” The 24-year-old Ashour won after coming from behind, losing the first two games against the Spanish No 1.
"I would have been really disappointed if I'd lost that 3/0, but not so much if it had been 3/2. Hopefully I learnt a lesson from that!
"I can't explain what goes on inside my head. I know it's something I should work on to find a solution," he added.
Shabana knocked out his Egyptian friend Tarek Momen after a 3-2 win before smashing Olli Tuominen of Finland 3-0, while El-Shorbagy defeated Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet 3-1 and English Adrian Grant 3-0.
Momen is the first of three eliminated Egyptians, as Mohamed Ali Anwar Reda left the championship after a 3-0 defeat against Tuominen before Marwan El-Shorbagy lost 3-0 to Indian Saurav Ghosal.
In the women's competition, Raneem El-Weleily and Nour El-Sherbini advanced to the last eight.
