World Champion denies Sarah-Jane Perry quarter-final place in El Gouna International

Sarah-Jane Perry extended Raneem El Welily to four games but was denied a quarter-final place in the El Gouna International as the World Champion eventually triumphed 11-5 8-11 11-4 12-10 in the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Series event being staged on the banks of Egypt’s Red Sea.

 

“I wasn’t consistent enough against a quality Raneem El Welily and her sublime attacks,” conceded Sarah-Jane after her 2nd round match. “It’s always a fair battle with Raneem and I wish her all the best for the rest of the tournament. Maybe next year I’ll win a match on this court! - I certainly look forward to trying.”
