Shahin 3-1 Adel

Nadine Shahin (EGY) 3-1 Yathreb Adel (EGY) 11-2, 11-7, 8-11, 11-9 (33m)


Well, like I was hoping yesterday, as she just got married and went on honeymoon, I think I was lucky enough for her not to be too prepared, and she probably had a few other things on her mind!

I was pumped up from the start, 8/0 in that opener, and I went that mode to the end of the second, 10/4. But she started finding a game, and came back point by point up to 7. She went on with the momentum in the third, took it 11/8, she has nothing to lose and I got a little nervous.

In the fourth, we were point for point, 4/4, then I had a couple of point lead, 10/6 match ball, and again, she clawed back to 9/10. I was lucky to take that one.

So happy to finally play in front of the Pyramids. I tried three times, so it’s my first time and I’m not done yet. Nour El Tayeb, here I come, everyone is creating upsets, so why not….
