REPORTS

ElShorbagy and Gohar Headline Oracle NetSuite Open Draws

The draws for the menís and womenís Oracle NetSuite Open, PSA World Tour Gold tournament have been released with the event set to bring world-class squash back to San Franciscoís Embarcadero Plaza between September 23-27.

Four previous winners of the Oracle NetSuite Open will be present this year, with Amanda Sobhy, Sarah-Jane Perry, Ali Farag and defending menís champion Mohamed ElShorbagy all in action as the tournament returns to the PSA World Tour calendar following a hiatus in 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

This yearís Oracle NetSuite Open will see all 30 matches played on the Squash Engine Court on Embarcadero Plaza in the shadow of the iconic San Francisco Ferry Building. A best-of-three games format will be used once again at the event up to and including the semi-finals, with both title deciders reverting to best of five.

ElShorbagy, the current World No.1, will be the top seed for the menís event in San Francisco, and his campaign will start against compatriot Mohamed Abouelghar in a tough first round fixture.

He then faces the possibility of meeting either Colombiaís Miguel Rodriguez or 2016 World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad in the quarter-finals. Either Paul Coll - who won the historic Allam British Open last week - or younger brother Marwan ElShorbagy await in the semis, before a possible meeting with familiar foe Farag in the final.

Farag will be the No.2 seed for the tournament but will return to World No.1 ahead of the tournament, with his run to the final of the British Open ensuring he will overtake ElShorbagy on September 1. A mouthwatering first round clash against CIB PSA World Tour Finals winner Mostafa Asal awaits Farag, while either Fares Dessouky or Indiaís Saurav Ghosal will lie in wait for his last eight encounter.

From there, Farag could face either World No.3 Tarek Momen or Peruís Diego Elias in the last four before a potential meeting with ElShorbagy in the final, one that could have a large say in the battle for World No.1

World No.2 Nouran Gohar heads the womenís draw as she makes her Oracle NetSuite Open debut and she begins her campaign against Canadian No.1 Hollie Naughton. She could then face either another Canadian in Danielle Letourneau, or Egyptís Salma Hany in the second round.

The former British Open champion is then in line to do battle with either compatriot Hania El Hammamy or New Zealandís Joelle King in the semis, before a possible meeting with either 2015 champ Sobhy or two-time winner Perry in the final.

Perry is a real crowd favourite after wins in 2017 and 2018 and she will start her campaign against Rowan Elaraby, before facing either Belgiumís Tinne Gilis or Indian No.1 Joshna Chinappa in the quarter-finals.

US No.1 Sobhy, meanwhile, faces Egyptís Nadine Shahin in the first round before a possible contest with compatriot Olivia Fiechter or Welsh No.1 Tesni Evans. Perry would await Sobhy in the last four, if the two make it to that stage.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2021 Oracle NetSuite Open and you can make sure you reserve your seat to be a part of the action. Find out more information here.
