BritOpen Update: Elshorbagy Takes Out Golan to Secure Second Round Berth

#PSAWorldTour

Egypt’s Marwan Elshorbagy progressed to round two of the prestigious 2016 Allam British Open, PSA World Series tournament after a gruelling 3-2 triumph over former World No.5 Borja Golan in the opening round of the ‘Wimbledon of Squash’.

Elshorbagy powered to a one-game lead, dropping just three points in the process, but Golan soon found his groove to overturn the deficit and take two games without reply. World No.11 Elshorbagy recovered though and outlasted Golan to close out a brutal 11-3, 6-11, 6-11, 11-5, 11-4 victory in 64-minutes.
