Number One spot in play…

The World No.1 spot will be up for grabs during the 2020 Qatar Classic, PSA Platinum tournament when three-time champion Mohamed ElShorbagy looks to wrestle it back from the grasp of fellow Egyptian CIB Ali Farag at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex from 1st to 7th November.

Farag, the 2018 champion, will overthrow ElShorbagy as the world’s leading male player on the day the tournament kicks off courtesy of his run to the final at the CIB Egyptian Open last week in front of the Great Pyramid of Giza, where he beat World Champion CIB Tarek Momen to lift the first Platinum title of the 2020-21 season.

But a failure to reach the semi-finals in Doha, coupled with title success for ElShorbagy, will see the latter gain the World No.1 spot once again in December.
