Nouran Gohar takes on Amanda Sobhy in the Hong Kong Open final

Gohar and Max Lee Named August Players of the Month


World Junior Champion Nouran Gohar and World No.17 Max Lee have been named as the PSA Players of the Month for August after both players impressed during last week’s Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open.

18-year-old Gohar lifted her first World Series title after a whirlwind week of action saw her power to the title just a matter of weeks after winning the World Junior Championship for the second time.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong No.1 Lee was also in fine form in the Men’s event as he rode the wave of fervent home support to reach a maiden World Series semi-final.

After a routine 3-0 victory against namesake Joe Lee in the opening round, Max Lee went on to record superb victories over Egyptian duo Ali Farag and Fares Dessouky to set up a last four fixture against a third Egyptian on the trot in Ramy Ashour.

A vociferous crowd backed Lee to the hilt, but the 28-year-old fell just short against the three-time World Champion to bring an end to his unlikely title charge.
