Charlie does it again !!!
The second day of Round Two action at The Wimbledon Club saw the quarter-finalists in the bottom half of the draw decided.
There was only one upset result tonight, but what a result it was as home favourite and wildcard Charlie Lee downed England #1 Mohamed ElShorbagy in four games !!
In the quarters he’ll play Youssef Soliman, who came from a game down to stop Swiss Nicolas Mueller, while the only all-seed quarter-final will feature top seed Ali Farag, who needed all five games to get past Greg Marche, and Mazen Hesham, who overcame compatriot Youssef Ibrahim in the shortest match of the round.
