Egypt’s Abdel Gawad wins Qatar Classic 2016


Doha, November 19, 2016 – Egypt’s Karim Abdel Gawad won today Qatar Classic 2016, after defeating his compatriot Mohammed El Shorbagy 3-0.
The final, which took place in Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex, ended 12-10, 15-13 and 11-7 for 25 year-old Abdel Gawad.
President of Qatar Squash Federation Nabil Ali bin Ali and CEO of Professional Squash Association Alex Gough handed the trophy to the winner.
