Egyptian World No.5 Nour El Sherbini secured passage through to the last eight of the Women’s J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions for the second year in succession after a commanding straight games victory over younger compatriot Mariam Metwally in round two.
El Sherbini was in good form throughout the 27-minute encounter with her consistent play and sublime shot selection enabling her to fend off Metwally’s attempts to gain a foothold in the match. After narrowly edging the opener, El Sherbini’s range of spectacular winners came to the fore in the second and she doubled her lead courtesy of some crucial errors from Metwally towards the end of the game.
