BUTTERFLY FAVORITE: Energy of Omar Assar

(by Steve Hopkins)

This is a Butterfly Favorite.  One of the strongest players through the Dusseldorf Masters Series a year ago was Egypt’s Omar Assar. This year in his first two appearances, he has already logged two Finals appearances (winning one).  The World’s No. 38 has an athletic and exciting style – amazing court coverage and long strokes create crowd-pleasing shots and great angles.  The video is one of his signature matches, overcoming the Series champion Dang Qiu in this Series VI Semifinal.

Assar uses a customized Butterfly inner fiber carbon blade that bears his name (OMAR ASSAR BLADE), and (very similar to the ALC Innerforce Blade) and Tenergy 05.
