Fares Dessouky (EGY) 3-1 Raphael Kandra (GER) 3-1  14-12, 11-8, 10-12, 11-6 (61m)

“Raphi is a very talented player and very athletic on court, so it was a good preparation for the next round and I’m happy to be through.

“Mostafa has been playing very well, he’s the World No.1 and everyone is chasing him these days. I’m just trying to find my consistency on court, but I have a lot of good memories here, so I have a lot of confidence to play the next round.

“I’m trying to play a lot of hard matches back-to-back so when I step on court I can lose a game or two but still come back to win the match. I’m working on that every day.”
