Kuwait Cup Day Two Schedule

Today is genuinely easy to describe – Round Two, sixteen matches with all the top 16 seeds involved, each taking on one of yesterday’s Round One winners (actually, having 16 seeds means it’s easy to spot the upsets – what chances all 16 going through?**)

It promises to be a long one, with ten matches at the Qadsia Club from 13.00 followed by six on the glass court at Green Island, starting at 18.00. The highlight will again be local favourite Abdullah Almezayen, this time taking on England’s Daryl Selby.
