Omar Mosaad during his titanic tussle with Miguel Angel Rodriguez

Hong Kong Update: Mosaad Wins Marathon Battle With Rodriguez

World Championship runner-up Omar Mosaad produced one of the best performances of his career as he came from 2-0 down and the brink of elimination to defeat Miguel Angel Rodriguez in a mammoth 102 minute quarter-final encounter at the 2015 Hong Kong Open.

The powerful Egyptian, nicknamed ‘Hammer of Thor’, had to come through an 81-minute battle with Lucas Serme to make the last eight and the exertion of that, coupled with his exploits at the World Championships one week ago, looked to be taking its toll as he slumped to 3-11 losses in the opening two games and cut an exhausted figure compared to the sprightly Rodriguez.
