2020 Women’s GOLD, SEMI-FINALS

2020 Women’s GOLD, Day FIVE, SEMIS

There was an unusual look to tonight’s CIB Black Ball Women’s GOLD semis, with four nationalities – and just one Egyptian – in contention after a quarter-final round which saw the top three seeds eliminated.

Sarah-Jane Perry reached her first Black Ball final with an up-and-down five-game win over Joelle King – all three of Perry’s games finishing 13-11, prompting the Englishwoman to declare “If I was a cat I’d have used up four of my nine lives!”

Hania El Hammamy – the sole remaining Egyptian – extended her Black Ball winning run to nine matches as she edged past Amanda Sobhy in three close games – saving four game balls in the second –  to keep up her hopes of a second CIB Black Ball Open title in 2020.

“Today’s match was a little bit weird, we both had our ups and downs,” said Hania.
