In the opening batch of matches, Mariam Metwally went the distance as she got the better of Hong Kong’s Ka Yi Lee. The pair did battle for 50 minutes, with the Egyptian eventually coming through a deciding game tie-break 14-12 to book her second round berth.

“I played Ka Yi in Malaysia and I lost, so today I was just trying to focus as much as I could and it worked well.

“I’ve been struggling with an injury since Black Ball, so I wasn’t playing my best. Today I was trying to stick to my game plan as much as I could. I was trying not to make it a long match, but I was happy to win.

“In the fifth I was struggling a bit with my ankle. I was trying to stay focussed and I was trying to keep pushing. I’m just happy with the way I managed the match today.”
