ElShorbagy and Gawad Seeded to Meet in Blockbuster Channel VAS Championships Final

World No.2 and 2017 winner Mohamed ElShorbagy is set to face World No.4 Karim Abdel Gawad in a mouthwatering title decider during the Channel VAS Championships at St. Georgeís Hill, which takes place in Weybridge between November 19-24.

This will be the fifth edition of the PSA World Tour Gold tournament, which will be staged at the St. Georgeís Hill Lawn and Tennis Club, where a total prize fund of $106,000 will be on offer.

ElShorbagy is the No.1 seed for the tournament once again, with fellow Egyptians Gawad, Mohamed Abouelghar and Marwan ElShorbagy also featured in the draw.

The World No.2 has been drawn to meet Peruís Diego Elias in the semi finals, while Gawad is seeded to meet 2016 winner Paul Coll in the bottom half of the draw.

The Kiwi caused a shock when he rose through qualifying to take the title, and he will return to Weybridge in November, where he will face either Arturo Salazar or Daryl Selby in the second round after receiving a first round bye.

Selby is one of seven Englishman to feature in the event alongside World No.20 Declan James, World No.23 Tom Richards, World No.40 George Parker, World No.42 Chris Simpson, World No.50 Richie Fallows and the tournamentís wildcard, Joe Lee, a former World No.29 who is set to make his first PSA appearance since May 2017.

Indiaís Saurav Ghosal and Welshman Joel Makin are the No.7 and No.8 seeds, respectively, and they are expected to face ElShorbagy and Coll in the quarter finals.

All matches will be shown live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World), Eurosport Player (Europe only) and the official Facebook page of the PSA World Tour (excluding Europe and Japan).

Tickets can be purchased from Ticketmaster, with prices starting at £16.85.
