Trio of upsets at St George's
as Selby takes out top seed Shorbagy

After two days of qualifying, it was time for the world's best to take to the Glass Court at St George's Hill LTC, with four matches in the top half of the PSA $100k draw.

It was a dramatic opening too, with the first three matches all producing upsets -including a massive one.

Spain's Borja Golan, the seventh seed who plays PSL for St George's, was playing his first match for three months, and looked a little rusty as he lost in four games to India's Saurav Ghosal, who was obviously delighted with his first ever win over Golan.

Kiwi qualifier Paul Coll was delighted with his five-game win over Hong Kong's Max Lee, coming from one-two down to claim his biggest quarter-final spot to date.

An even bigger upset was to follow as Daryl Selby - a former St George's PSL player - got the better of world number one and top seed Mohamed Elshorbagy it a brutal five game encounter.

A semblance of order was restored as fourth-seeded Colombian Miguel Rodriguez beat Greg Marche to conclude the evening, although the French qualifier pushed Rodriguez close in all three games.
