NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 20/04/2017

Leading Kiwi Paul Coll has brushed aside an Egyptian opponent to reach the quarter-finals of the Houston Open in Texas.

World No.13 and tournament seventh seed Coll beat 24th-ranked Zahed Mohamed 11-7 11-9 11-9 in his opening match to advance to a showdown with ninth-ranked Egyptian Fares Dessouky.

Coll's next opponent was very nearly 39th-ranked Campbell Grayson but the Kiwi No.2 just fell short of one of the biggest results of his career. He went down to Dessouky 4-11 11-4 2-11 11-8 11-9 in a 62-minute struggle.
