Marwan ElShorbagy (EGY) 3-0 Nathan Lake (ENG) 11-8, 11-8, 12-10 (43m)
“I’m really happy with my first round win today,”
“I thought that I played well, first round is always tricky but I think I handled it well. All credit to Nathan, he got a big win yesterday against George Parker and it was a long match, so I tried to use that to my advantage and extend the rallies. I could tell at the end he was getting a bit heavier.
“We know each other’s games well because we train in Bristol together sometimes. Both of us had a little bit of an idea of how to play against each other today. I’m really happy with my performance overall, I could have done things a bit different, but I’m happy overall and looking forward to my rest day tomorrow.
“There were things I could have done better, one of those things was starting each game better. I didn’t start the first or third well and these are the kind of things that I need to be working on for my next round.”
