Order of play

Gohar v El Sherbini

First up is the women's final between World No.1 Nouran Gohar and reigning World Champion Nour El Sherbini.

This match is a repeat of last year's PSA World Championship final in which El Sherbini beat Gohar in a 53-minute 3-1 to lift her fifth World title.

Whilst El Sherbini holds a strong head-to-head record against Gohar, the younger Egyptian has won three of the last five encounters between the pair.

Stats

In the last meeting between the two, at the CIB Black Ball Open 2022 final, Gohar led by 2-0 before El Sherbini was unfortunately forced to withdraw due to injury, which would keep her out of action for a period of time.

‘The Terminator’ has only dropped one game on route to the final, against semi-final opponent Amanda Sobhy. After a tight fourth game, Gohar booked her place in the final after a 49-minute affair.

El Sherbini defeated compatriot Nour El Tayeb in her semi-final. After 51 minutes of attacking, entertaining squash, the World No.2 moved through to yet another World Championship final.

Squash Levels predictions

Our friends at Squash Levels have predicted a 4 game victory for the World No.1, Gohar and have given her an 80% chance of victory in tonight’s final.

Gohar is yet to win the biggest prize in the game and will be determined to capitalise on her excellent 2022 form to lift the trophy.

Farag v ElShorbagy

Following on from the women’s final will be an all-Egyptian battle between two former World Champions Ali Farag and Mohamed ElShorbagy.

The pair met in last year’s final in Chicago, USA. It was Farag who lifted the trophy after he won a 67-minute final 3-1 in July last year.

Squash Levels predictions

The Squash Levels predictions have got reigning World Champion Ali Farag winning in four games, just like he did a year ago. The prediction also had Farag at a 75% chance of winning compared to ElShorbagy’s 25%.

But as we all know, you can never write off ‘The Beast of Alexandria’, ElShorbagy. These two never disappoint and we’re expecting a match full of quality yet again in tonight’s final.
