World number one Nouran Gohar of Egypt crushed England’s Georgina Kennedy 2-0 at the PSA World Tour Finals to reach the semi-finals.

Gohar registered a dominating 11-3 win in the first game and followed it up with a 11-4 victory to seal the match in only 19 minutes.

In the second women’s game, Amanda Sobhy of the United States was at her attacking best to triumph against New Zealand’s Joelle King.

King, who boasted a 10-1 advantage over Sobhy in the head-to-head going into the match, went down 5-11, 5-11.

The final woman’s game of the day saw world champion Nour El Sherbini of Egypt take on compatriot and British Open winner Hania El Hammamy in a classic.

El Sherbini’s aggressive display caused problems for El Hammamy as she lost 9-11 in the first game.

But there was an instant response from El Hammamy with a 11-4 win after what looked like a minor injury to El Sherbini.

With the game going to a decider, El Sherbini who received treatment before the final game, lived up to her nick name of "The Warrior Princess" by clinching 11-9 win.

Among men, England’s Mohamed El Shorbagy cruised to a 2-0 win over Diego Elias of Peru to reach the semi-finals.

El Shorbagy started the match with a 11-6 win in the first game and closed the match with a 11-7 victory in the second game.

The second men’s game saw world number one Ali Farag of Egypt seal a semi-finals slot by getting the better of compatriot Mazen Hesham.

Farag gave no chance for Hesham in the first game as he won it 11-3 but the momentum swung in Hesham’s favour in the second.

Some sensational winners in quick succession helped him to get a 11-9 win.

The decider saw Farag storm to a 5-1 lead before finishing the game and the match with a 11-2 win.

New Zealand’s Paul Coll was no match for El Gouna International winner Mostafa Asal of Egypt in the remaining men’s game of the day.

It took only 21 minutes as Coll won the first game 11-8 before adding another 11-5 triumph to reach the semi-finals.
