Unseeded finalist assured as the upsets continue at St George's Hill ...

The first two quarter-finals ensured that there will be at least one unseeded player in tomorrow's final after contrasting wins for Daryl Selby and Paul Coll.

Last year's beaten finalist but unseeded this year, Selby, having already beaten the top seed, looked in great shape as he beat Saurav Ghosal in straight games, while qualifier Coll continued to impress as he beat fourth-seeded Colombian Miguel Rodriguez in a five-game marathon.

There was bound to be an Egyptian winner of the third match, but again it was a seeding upset as Tarek Momen recovered from 3-10 down in the first game to take the lead against Marwan Elshorbagy, then proceeded to lead throughout the next two games to reach the semis.

The final spot in the semi-final was taken by James Willstrop, the sixth seed coming from a game down to beat qualifier Steve Coppinger to continue his recent run of impressive results.

Weird ending to Tarek/Marwan match:

 Match ball, looks like a stroke, video decision ... Marwan sees it and concedes, walks off court
but then the decision comes in as ‘no let’,  so Marwan’s back, but the reprieve is short-lived.
