Egyptian squash player Karim Abdel Gawad got his World Tour Finals campaign off to a winning start as he overcame New Zealand's Paul Coll in Cairo on Monday 10/6/2019.
The Egyptian former World No.1 was in dominant form in the opening stages as he settled into his rhythm quickly to take the first game.
Kiwi Coll grew in confidence to settle into his game plan in the second as he began to break up the free-flowing squash that Gawad was producing in the first. However, it was not enough to prevent Gawad from claiming victory by an 11-5, 13-11 scoreline in 40 minutes and claiming the maximum points on offer and move him into a strong position in Group A.
