Women's Dubai PSA World Series Finals

Women's Dubai PSA World Series Finals

Finishing Line In Sight In Women's Race To Dubai

The race amongst the world’s top female squash players to qualify for a lucrative berth at the season-ending Dubai PSA World Series Finals reaches its conclusion next week when the sixth PSA World Series tournament of the season, the iconic Allam British Open, takes place in Hull from March 21-27 when the last qualifying points of the campaign will be up for grabs.

All of the top four players in the standings, Laura Massaro, Nour El Sherbini, Nicol David and Raneem El Welily, have tasted success on the PSA World Series so far this season and all are assured of their place at the World Series Finals, which will take place in Dubai from May 24-28.

World No.4 Camille Serme, No.6 Omneya Abdel Kawy and No.7 Amanda Sobhy are also all but guaranteed to appear in the eight-strong tournament - with only first round victories in Hull required to cement their status - while Egyptian teenage sensation Nouran Gohar, the World Junior Champion, is odds on to be the eighth player to qualify.

Gohar currently occupies the eighth berth and holds a commanding 55 point lead over Hong Kong's Annie Au - with the pair seeded to meet in the second round in Hull. Au faces a huge challenge to make it to Dubai, with nothing less than a runner-up place enough to get her through to the showcase tournament.

The Hong Kong number one will look to take inspiration from last year's British Open success stories Serme, the surprise tournament winner, and Delia Arnold, the qualifier who made it all the way to the semi-finals, when the action gets underway on Monday.
