Ex-Squash Pro: 11-Year-Old Beat Elder Sister To Qualify For Next Round
Eleven-year old Mistura Durosinlorun on Friday defeated elder sister Ahisa 2-0 in one of the matches at the ongoing Second Ex-Squash Pro International Tournament at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.
The press reports that Mistura, who was compared to Serena Williams by several spectators at the event, had defeated Ahisa in the final of the 2017 edition.
Shortly after winning, she said she wished she had played against someone else, instead of her sister.
“I wish we both could have gotten to the next round and eventually play in the final, but I believe everything happened for a reason.
“Playing in the final together is what I always look forward to. I’d have to ensure that I make it to the next round. My victory is our victory,” she said.
Reacting to the development, Ahisa revealed that the 0-2 loss came as a shock, and added that she would soon resume training to enable her work more on her game.
“I guess I probably didn’t train hard enough. I need to do better and get better at my game. Mistura’s game keeps getting better and I’m proud of her.
“But I need to task myself and get better. Today, the better player won,’’ she said.
