Men’s World No.1 Ali Farag and former World No.1 Karim Abdel Gawad will meet in the second round of the upcoming U.S. Open when the world’s best players descend on Philadelphia’s Arlen Specter US Squash Center between October 7-14.
Farag and Gawad contested the PSA World Championship final in May and will go up against each other again in the last 32 in Philadelphia in what is a tricky start to the event for both players. Farag won that World Championship battle and is aiming to win his third U.S. Open title, having been forced to retire from last year’s final due to injury.
The defending champion Diego Elias is seeded at No.2 and will play either US No.4 Faraz Khan or India’s Ramit Tandon in round two. Elias, the only South American to win the trophy in the event’s history, is then predicted to face Englishmen Nathan Lake and Marwan ElShorbagy in round three and the quarter-finals, respectively, before a semi-final clash with No.4 seed Paul Coll.
Three-time U.S. Open champion Mohamed ElShorbagy is seeded at No.3 and is on the same side of the draw as Farag and Gawad. He will take on Egypt’s Mohamed ElSherbini in the last 32.
In the women’s draw, World No.2 Nouran Gohar will look to become the first player ever to win the U.S. Open four times in a row. The 25-year-old Egyptian, who is now based in Stamford, Connecticut will get under way against either World No.26 Hana Ramadan or World No.52 Salma Eltayeb.
From there, Gohar is seeded to play the Gilis sisters, Tinne and Nele, in the third round and quarter-finals, before a potential semi-final with No.4 seed Joelle King.
On the opposite side of the draw lies World Champion Nour El Sherbini, who is seeded at No.2. Despite four previous final appearances, the 27-year-old is yet to get her hands on the prestigious trophy, making the U.S. Open one of the few major events that El Sherbini has been unable to win.
The World No.1 will look to make amends but will need to come through a tough draw which includes No.8 seed Georgina Kennedy – who took El Sherbini to five games in April’s British Open – and 2021 runner-up Hania El Hammamy.
