After defeating compatriot Chris Hanson in the 50k Abierto Colombiano qualifying finals, Todd Harrity’s run in Bogota came to an end Wednesday night as the American lost his first career match against Egyptian world No. 35 Zahed Mohamed.
Mohamed, the tournament eight seed, won the first two games 11-9, 11-7, but Harrity came back to win the third 11-9. The twenty-three-year-old from Alexandria then closed the fourth game and match 11-6 in thirty-one minutes.
Mohamed now faces the daunting task of Colombian world No. 4 and top seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez in Thursday’s quarterfinals.
