R1: UPSET ALERT…. WC Azzam takes Mueller out

[WC] Omar Azzam (EGY) 3-2 Nicolas Mueller (SUI)  12-10, 4-11, 11-7, 4-11, 11-9 (55m)

What a treat for the home crowd as Wildcard Omar Azzam produced his best ever performance to take down the Swiss Rocket in five games.


“I’ve been dreaming of this match since I was a little kid. It’s a great thing to share a court with a tough player like Nicolas. He’s such a good player and I’ll remember this day until I die, I can’t believe it.

“I told myself to give it my all. I’ve been training my shots for the past year with my coach, Ahmed Eiffat. All of the hard work came out, so I’m really happy with my performance and I’m looking forward to the next match.”
