In Gaborone, the two Egyptian boys confirmed their reputation as the top players in world junior tennis. They led an Egyptian domination of the tournament as all the country's six boys finished in the top 10. Sahourbashy and Wageh are tipped to be in the top 10 in the professional category as early as next year.
