Massaro: Too strong for Gohar

Hong Kong Update: Massaro Into Last 4

World No.2 Laura Massaro showed her experience and resilience to overcome hard-hitting World Junior Champion Nouran Gohar to reach the semi-finals of the 2015 Hong Kong Open as she seeks a third consecutive PSA World Series title.

Massaro triumphed at both the U.S. Open and Qatar Classic prior to making the trip to the Far East and she continued her dazzling run of form, which now extends to 13 matches unbeaten, as she countered the talented Egyptian to come through a tough four-game battle.

Massaro took the first game but soon saw her advantage wiped off as Gohar increased her precision and pace to take the second and she continued in the ascendency in the early stages of the third. But Massaro’s experience came to the fore as she mixed up the tempo, frustrating the 19-year-old, to take the third before hammering home her advantage to take the match 11-5, 6-11, 11-8, 11-6.
