Overview

The opening round of action at the 2015 Macau Open saw Egyptian talent dominate proceedings in the PSA M50 tournament, with top seeds Omar Mosaad and Tarek Momen, the defending champion, leading a five-strong Egyptian contingent into the quarter-finals.

Mosaad, the 2013 champion, overcame compatriot Karim Ali Fathi 3-1 to move into the last eight to face Malaysian Nafiizwan Adnan, where he’ll be confident of reaching a second consecutive semi-final after making the last four at the Stars On The Bund China Open earlier this month.

Defending champion Momen suffered a first round exit at the China Open at the hands of Marwan Elshorbagy, who is also through to the quarters courtesy of a comfortable victory over Wildcard Steven Liu, and will face a tough last eight encounter with compatriot Omar Abdel Megiud as he hopes to keep his chances of securing back-to-back title triumphs alive while Fares Dessouki completed the Egyptian quintet courtesy of an impressive straight-games win over Olli Tuominen.

Australian Donna Urquart, the former World No.13, pulled off the biggest upset of the first round in the Women’s PSA W50 tournament as she took out former World No.2 Jenny Duncalf in a tense 3-2 encounter, eventually prevailing 11-3, 7-11, 11-8, 7-11, 11-7.

England’s Emily Whitlock further upset the seeding as she knocked out former World No.1 Rachael Grinham 3-0 to move into the last eight while top seeds Laura Massaro and Nour El Tayeb enjoyed comfortable first round victories.
