R2: El Tayeb wins tough 3-1 over Elaraby

[5] Nour El Tayeb (EGY) 3-1 [25] Rowan Elaraby (EGY) 13-11, 11-9, 10-12, 11-8 (47m)

It was a very tough performance, she’s getting better every match.

“We played just 10 days ago, but she seems to be playing better and better and seems to have figured me out a lot better. I fell into the trap of being match ball up and thinking that the match was over, but I was very glad that I was able to come back in the fourth and win.

“It’s going to be very tough against Hany. We train a lot together, we’ve played so many times in PSA tournaments, so it’s going to be very tough, but I’m looking forward to it.

“It’s the one tournament you want to do well at, especially in front of the Pyramids and with it being the World Championship. I’m sure there is going to be a lot of pressure on both of us, but hopefully we can enjoy it and play well.”
