Marwan ElShorbagy (EGY) 3-1 Victor Crouin (FRA) 8-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-9 (52m)
He played very well, but I was not surprised I have seen him play and I was expecting it. He has all the basis, the game is in place, and he sees the ball very well. He can build up from there, and I have played a lot of young French players, he is the most exciting of them all.
I’m quite happy with my performance, although the first match is never easy, but I’m quite excited to play, I can’t describe how excited I am for this event actually, I’m going to have a great tournament, that’s all I can say.
