REPORTS
ElShorbagy and Farag Seeded to Meet in All-Egyptian Channel VAS Championships Final

Egyptian duo Mohamed ElShorbagy and Ali Farag have been seeded to go head-to-head in the final of the 2017 Channel VAS Championships at St Georgeís Hill after the draw for the PSA M100 tournament was released today (September 19).

World No.3 and top seed ElShorbagy will look to improve on a shock first round defeat at last yearís tournament as he takes on Spainís former World No.16 Borja Golan for a place in the last eight.

A win for the Egyptian powerhouse could see him face compatriot Fares Dessouky, while he is seeded to meet younger brother Marwan in a titanic semi-final encounter.

The other side of the draw sees Farag take on tournament wildcard Joe Lee in round one, while the World No.5 is seeded to meet defending champion Paul Coll in a mouthwatering quarter-final clash if the Kiwi World No.10 can come through against Australia's Ryan Cuskelly in what looks set to be the pick of the first round matches.

Coll and Cuskelly are set to meet for the sixth time on the PSA World Tour, with Cuskelly currently leading the head-to-head record by four wins to one. It was the man from New Zealand who prevailed in their last meeting at the 2016 Delaware Investments U.S. Open, however, so it's all to play for in Weybridge.

Elsewhere in the draw, 2016 runner-up Tarek Momen faces a qualifier in round one and a win would see him take on either Englandís Daryl Selby or Peruís World No.17 Diego Elias for a place in the semi-finals - with the former getting the better of Mohamed ElShorbagy on the opening day of last yearís tournament.

Qualification for the Channel VAS Championships at St Georgeís Hill will take place between October 16-17, with the main draw held between October 18-22. The whole tournament will take place at the St George's Hill Lawn Tennis Club.

Every match from the main draw will also be shown live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World) or Eurosport Player (Europe only).
