Nick Matthew denied Qatar Classic semi-final place by Tarek Momen

Three-time World Champion Nick Matthew, represented by internationalSPORTgroup, was denied a place in semi-finals by Egypt’s Tarek Momen after a 11-5 9-11 11-7 11-6 in a 43 minute defeat in the quarter-finals of the Qatar Classic staged at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.
 
"I’m very happy that I managed to get the win," said Momen after the Egyptian 'Viper' knocked out 37-year-old Nick Matthew of England in four games to secure his first World Series semi-final berth in three years - taking advantage of an uncharacteristically error-strewn performance from Matthew.
