REPORTS
Gaultier Excited to Begin Season at Oracle NetSuite Open

World No.1 Gregory Gaultier is aiming to make a strong start to the 2017/18 season when he gets his campaign under way at the 2017 Oracle NetSuite Open, which takes place in San Francisco, United States between September 26-30.

Gaultier has dominated the PSA World Tour in 2017, winning six titles and 27 matches in a row en route to becoming the oldest ever World No.1, male or female.

The Frenchman defeated Englandís James Willstrop to lift last yearís title - his third Oracle NetSuite Open crown - and he is eyeing up further success as he looks to begin the season in style.

"Iíve played the event five times and have always enjoyed playing there," said 34-year-old Gaultier.

"Itís the first tournament of the season, so of course itís important to have a good start from there and try to build up some confidence for the rest of the season. We will see what happens.

"[Tournament Promoter] John Nimick always does a good job with organising events and always tries to set up the glass court in spectacular places.

"After all these years going there, I know lot of people and friends, so it's even more pleasant to go somewhere you have already experienced, spent good time and have a lot of good memories. Itís a great place to visit for people who come to watch the event also."

Gaultier is part of the strongest ever menís draw, with World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad, World No.3 Mohamed ElShorbagy and World No.4 Nick Matthew all seeded to join him in the semi-finals as they battle it out for a share of the $100,000 prize fund.

A womenís tournament featuring $50,000 prize money will also be held alongside the menís event and sees defending champion Laura Massaro headline the draw ahead of Malaysiaís eight-time World Champion Nicol David, World No.6 Sarah-Jane Perry and World No.13 Emily Whitlock.

The qualifying stages and first round of the Oracle NetSuite Open will be held at local clubs between September 24-26, with matches from the quarter-finals onwards taking place on the Oracle NetSuite Challenge court on Justin Herman Plaza between September 27-30.

Action from the Oracle NetSuite Challenge court will be shown live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World) and Eurosport Player (Europe Only), while tickets start from $20 and can be purchased at www.netsuiteopensquash.tix.com
