El Sherbini Leads Egypt To Early World Teams Success
22 Jul 2013
Less than 24 hours after making history by becoming the first player to win the world junior individual squash title for a third time, 17-year-old Nour El Sherbini was back on the courts at the Hasta La Vista Club in Poland's historic city of Wroclaw to lead defending champions Egypt to victory on the opening day of Pool action in the WSF Women's World Junior Team Championship.
The event favourites beat former champions Australia 3/0 in the opening tie in Pool A, before No8 seeds New Zealand recorded the same scoreline over hosts Poland in the pool in preparation for the Egypt/New Zealand clash in round two.
Second seeds USA, due to meet Egypt in Saturday's final, also cruised to a 3/0 win, beating France without dropping a game.
