    Japan with Masahiro Otsuka and Yuto Higashi on duty captured the Boys’ Team title at the Tunisia Junior Open on Friday 30th April 2010, to once again underline the excellence of the coaching systems employed in Asia.

    Seeded no.2, they overcame top seeds, Egypt `A’ at the final hurdle with Yuto Higashi the backbone of success.

    He beat both Khalid Assar and Karim El-Shaarawy, whilst teaming with Masahiro Otsuksa to clinch the doubles; the one Egyptian success came from Khalid Assar in the opening contest of the final. He defeated Masahiro Otsuka in three straight games. Series of Fine Performances
    It was another in series of fine performances by the Japanese team.

    They had progressed through the initial stages without surrendering a single individual match to qualify for the semi-finals and in their penultimate round duel they maintained their ascendancy.

    They beat the Tunisia `B’ team of Oussama Chaieb and Ben Hmida Anas by three matches to nil.

    No Stopping Egypt
    Similarly, there was no stopping Egypt `A’; they beat the Czech Republic duo of Kamil Matejka and Jan Holan without the loss of a singles individual match. However, the end result did not reflect on the effort made by the Czech team.

    Kamil Matejka extended Khalid Assar to four games whilst Jan Holtan fell min a five games full distance contest in opposition to Karim El-Shaarawy.

    Tunisian Hero
    Silver for Egypt in the Boys’ Team event and in the Cadet Boys’ team competition it was exactly the same scenario but Tunisia `A’ but it was close.

    Tunisia `A’ overcame Egypt `A’ by three matches to two with no match being decided in straight games.

    Hero
    Hero of the hour for the host nation was Karem Ben Yahya; with the match score level at two-all, he beat Mahmoud Nabil 11-9 in the deciding fifth game to secure the title.

    It was Tunisia who made the better start with Thameur Mamia beating the luckless Mahmoud Nabil in five games but Egypt responded immediately.

    Stage Set
    Shady Magdy overcame Karem Ben Yahya in four games; the Egyptians secured the doubles by the same margin before Thameur Mamia recovered from an opening game deficit against Shady Magdy to level matters.

    The stage was set, Karem Ben Yahya responded; the host nation celebrated.
