Marwan deposes Simpson as
Coppinger keeps the shocks coming ...

The second day of main draw action started with the defeat of defending champion Chris Simpson, but in contrast to yesterday that was a result predicted by the seedings.

Third seed Marwan Elshorbagy, one of three Egyptians in action tonight, held game balls in the first only to see Simpson snatch the lead, but responded strongly in the next three games to reach the quarters.

The upsets returned in the second match as South African qualifier Steve Coppinger added to the seeds' casualty list as he overcame second seed Omar Mosaad in five games.

Coppinger edged the first two games, but it looked as though Mosaad had weathered the storm and found his range as he levelled. But Coppinger dominated the decider to register one oh his best ever wins.

Tarek Momen made it two Egyptians through to the quarter-finals as he beat St George's own wildcard entry Joe Lee in four games.

Momen was on top for the first two games but Joe fought back well to sneak the third, but Momen quickly established a winning lead in the fourth.

James Willstrop completed round one with a tough three-game win over qualifier Nicolas Mueller. The Swiss had his chances in all three games, but Willstrop had the edge at the end of all of them as he advanced to the quarter-finals.

So, the last eight features two qualifiers, one non-seed and just two Egyptians - who play each other next.
