Egypt keeps causing upsets in the 2013 ITTF World Team Classic. After beating Sigapore in the group phase, Omar Assar and Co. emerged successfully over Germany in quarterfinals. In semifinals, Egypt will face Chinese Taipei of Chuang Chih-Yuan that defeated  Austria in the previous round.

Egypt continues on the victory route. After the victory over Singapore of Gao Ning in the group phase, the African country just eliminated Germany led by Bastian Steger and progressed to semifinals. Germans started leading as Patrick Baum stood victorious over Omar Assar by 3:1. Then El-Sayed Lashin surprised after beating Batsian Steger by 3:2 and leveled the score at 1:1. Ahmed Saleh and Lashin recovered from a 0:2 down and beat Patrick Franziska and Steger by 3:2. 

Ahmed Saleh came back to the table to face Patrick Baum. The Egyptian player took the first two games and it seemed that that would be the end for Germany, but Baum fought back and managed to win by 3:2. Omar Assar and Patrick Franziska met in the deciding match. Assar won the first two games but Franziska kept German hopes alive as he got the third game by 11:9. Assar recovered in the fourth match and sealed his victory in the fourth game.
