Aruna Quadri vs Omar Assar
Africa Cup
23 July 2015

Final of the men’s singles of the Africa Cup. There are a few spectacular topspin rallies, but mainly it’s a one sided contest. Omar Assar (Egypt) does very well playing to Aruna Quadri’s (Nigeria) weaker backhand side. Almost every time he plays to the backhand corner, Quadri struggles to keep the ball on the table. He either blocks long or gets in a tangle trying to play with his forehand. This match is a good example of how to exploit an opponent’s weakness.
