Gawad claims World Title
as Ashour pulls up injured


Karim Adbel Gawad is the 2016 Men's World Champion after his opponent Ramy Ashour was forced to retuie with injury in the fourth game of the all-Egyptian final at the Wadi Degla Club in Cairo.

Three-time champion Ashour, who had a rest day when defending champion Gregory Gaultier pulled out of their semi-final with injury, took the first game but Gawad struck back to take the next two, and looked to be in control of affairs when Ashour's injury jinx struck again.

In the women's Wadi Degla Open final, also an all-Egyptian affair between Wadia Degla teammates Raneem El Welily and Nouran Gohar, it was Welily who prevailed in four games.

PREVIEW:

Finals Day at Wadi Degla, and first up will be two local favourites, both double world junior champions and both playing at their Home club.

Now, they'll be playing to become the inaugural Wadi Degla Open Champion.

After that's decided it's time for the  Men's World Championship Final which, for just the second time ever, features two compatriots playing in their home country (check the History page to find out who they're following - although you can probably make a good guess).

Ramy Ashour is no stranger to World Finals, he's won three and lost one, but for Karim Abdel Gawad this is a new experience, it will be just his second World Series final. 

They've met four times with Ashour winning them all. The last two meetings were in last year's Worlds third round, and in this year's Hong Kong final.

This time though they've got their sights set on not just a major title, but on becoming the World Champion, and there are only fourteen people who've done that before ...
