Mendez caught the three seed and 2014 national champion off guard winning the first game 11-8, but the younger Sobhy sister responded by winning the match in four 11-5, 11-5, 11-5.

World No. 7 Amanda Sobhy recorded the quickest result of the round, defeating local Bostonian Corey Schafer 11-1, 11-1, 11-3 in thirteen minutes. Sobhy will face recent CSA Individual finalist Reeham Sedky in first semifinal Saturday.
