Top seeds Omar Mosaad and Olli Tuominen will contest the final of the HKFC Meco Invitational after prevailing in today's semi-finals of the inaugural PSA World Tour International 25 squash event at Hong Kong Football Club in Happy Valley, Hong Kong.
It was the end of the road for local hero Leo Au, the Hong Kong qualifier who despatched third seed Ong Beng Hee en-route to a surprise appearance in the last four.
Indeed, the 22-year-old world No75 took the opening game against top seed Mosaad as the partisan crowd began to contemplate the prospect of local interest in the final.
But Mosaad, the world No13 from Egypt, turned up the pressure early in the second game - dropping just eight further points as he marched into the final following his 8-11, 11-1, 11-3, 11-4 victory in 38 minutes.
It took Tuominen longer to claim his anticipated place in the event's climax. The second seed from Finland faced unseeded Muhd Asyraf Azan - and claimed his second straight games win in the championship after beating the Malaysian 11-5, 13-11, 11-7 in 46 minutes.
Mosaad is celebrating the 16th PSA World Tour final of his career - but his first of the year - while Tuominen, the world No24, is marking his 18th, and looking for his second Tour win of 2012.
