QSF No.1 RoundUp: Semi-Finalists Confirmed

The semi-finalists have been confirmed for the QSF No.1 PSA Bronze tournament after Scotland’s Greg Lobban and England’s George Parker scored big wins at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex in Doha.

World No.32 Lobban downed number two seed Germany’s Raphael Kandra in straight-games to reach his second semi-final of 2018.

The Scottish player was in dominant form to put World No.20 Kandra to the sword and complete an 11-7, 11-8, 11-7 win in 48 minutes. He will now take on England’s number three seed Daryl Selby in the semi-finals after he defeated home favourite Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi.

Selby took the first game before Al Tamimi battled back in the second to level the scores, however, the Englishman utilised his vast experience to close out an 11-4, 5-11, 13-11, 11-8 in 60 minutes.

The other semi-final will see top seed Omar Mosaad take on England’s George Parker for a place in the final.

Former World No.3 Mosaad scored a comfortable 11-8, 14-12, 11-2 victory over England’s World No.53 Joshua Masters to reach his second semi-final of the year.
