It’s quarter finals day at the 2021 Qatar QTerminals Classic – and there are four mouthwatering matchups coming up at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex.
We’ll have reports and reaction from all four matches right here. Peru’s Diego Elias and Germany’s Raphael Kandra get play under way at 15:00 (GMT+3). Both players came through five-game battles in the previous round, with Elias coming back from two games down to defeat Frenchman Gregoire Marche.
Meanwhile, Kandra dumped No.4 seed Marwan ElShorbagy out of the tournament.
Egyptian shot-maker Mazen Hesham locks horns with No.8 seed Joel Makin after that, before Mohamed Abouelghar clashes with No.2 seed Paul Coll.
Abouelghar is appearing in his first Platinum quarter final for over two years and will look to avenge a 3-2 defeat to Coll during September’s CIB Egyptian Open, where he lost after 87 minutes of intense action.
2017 runner-up Tarek Momen and U.S. Open champion Mostafa Asal bring play to a close at 17:15 in what looks set to be the day’s standout fixture.
It was only two weeks ago that Asal came back from two games down to deny Momen a maiden Platinum trophy in the U.S. Open final. The pair also have the makings of an intense rivalry following comments made by Momen on social media where he claimed Asal has a ‘win at all costs mentality’.
