Egypt March On On Opening Day Of World Junior Team Champs

Less than 24 hours after winning both world individual titles in New Zealand, Egypt claimed two wins on day one of the WSF Women's World Junior Team Squash Championship at the Devoy Squash & Fitness Centre in Tauranga to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the biennial World Squash Federation event.

After beating Australia 3/0 in the morning, Egypt faced hosts New Zealand in the evening as the eighth seeds bid to upset the favourites who are bidding for a sixth successive title.

With the new world champion Rowan Reda Araby rested, runner-up Hania El Hammamy put the top seeds into the lead by beating top Kiwi Kaitlyn Watts 11-5, 11-8, 11-8. Zeina Mickawy clinched victory after an 11-4, 11-5, 11-3 win over home player Camden Te Kani-McQueen before Amina Yousry made it maximum points by beating Anika Jackson 11-5, 11-2, 11-5.

Second seeds Malaysia also recorded a positive start in Pool B, beating Germany 3/0, courtesy of straight games wins by Andrea Lee, Aifa Azman and Zoe Foo Yuk Han.

Pool C favourites England, the No.3 seeds, also claimed a pair of victories - over France (both pictured below) and sixth seeds India.

The day's only upset came when South Africa, the 13th seeds, beat France, seeded two positions higher, 2/1. 16-year-old Faith Panashe Sithole put the underdogs into the lead, but when a win by Lauriane Maingot saw France draw level, Cape Town's 18-year-old Jennifer Preece sealed victory for South Africa by beating Maelle Fuhrer 8-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-7.
