Tesni Evans is returning to best form in Cairo.

Tesni Evans Battles But Bows Out Against Black Ball Champ In Cairo

Tesni Evans saw her run at the Black Ball Open in Cairo ended at the quarter-finals.

The 28-year-old took a see-saw first game against No 4 seed Hania El Hammamy 12-10 having saved a game point.

But the Egyptian claimed the next three games 11-7, 11-5, 11-6 in a tough 49 minute battle.

But Evans can take heart from her displays in reaching the last eight of the tournament.

The No 8 seed and world No 9 is getting back to her best squash after seeing last season wrecked by an ankle injury.

“I am really happy that I managed to win in four,” said the defending champion. “Tesni is a tough opponent, very talented, very tricky.

“I really had to stick to my gameplan, try to not to run too much and I think in the first game, I was up and then I lost my focus and then she outplayed me.”
