Egypt’s Tarek eyes maiden Malaysian Open title

21/11/2022 04:44 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 (Bernama) -- Egyptian Tarek Momen who returns to the Malaysian Open Squash Championship scheduled at the National Squash Centre from Nov 22-26, after nine-years, has set his sights firmly on the title this time.

Being the top seed, the world number seven Tarek only featured in the tournament once, where he finished runner-up to Peter Baker of England in the 2013 edition.

“I am looking forward to grab the title here after having played some good level of squash in my career lately and trying to accomplish great results for the seed placement in the next tournament,’’ he told reporters here today. 

The 34 year-old said he was excited to be in Malaysia, where he had fantastic memories of reaching the final of the 2013 World Team Championship during his debut year for his national team.

“I do have some great memories here and it is always nice to come back to see the bigger levels that I can achieve as well as take a step forward in my career,’’ he said.

Tarek, who received a first round bye, will face the winner of the match between his compatriot Yahya Elnawasany and Malaysian Mohammad Syafiq Kamal, in the second on Wednesday.

Last week, Tarek only managed to reach the Singapore Open 2022 quarter-finals, before going down to compatriot Mohamed ElShorbagy.
