Finally found an obscure newspaper (Malaya news) that was the only one to report the news among the Basketball-crazy philippines newspapers .. here is it is.
Sanaa lost to Tamaela. No idea about the score. Sad to see that all three Indian girls lost in the QFs - but all to higher ranked players. Great run by Sanaa who turned 14 only a couple of weeks back! -- no idea who she beat Szili and Beier Ko !
