Following a great run of wins in the recent QSF Event in Qatar, Perry Malik has broken into the top 100 for the first time in his career!
Perry knocked out the higher-ranked Martin Svec in round one and went one better in round two, edging eighth-seed Addeen Idrakie in 84 minutes.
Perry had to do things the hard way, winning the first game 16-14 after spurning four game balls before saving a game ball of his own en route to taking the second 13-11.
Idrakie hit back to take the next two and send the match to a decider, but Malik took control in the middle of the fifth, racing from 4-4 to 9-4 before closing out the win.
This set up a quarter-final showdown with No.1 seed Eain Yow Ng, who ended Perry’s run.
From his new ranking place of #90 his next target will be the Top 50!
