Here’s the Order of Play for tonight
(All times are local GMT+4)

First up is the RMCLUB Women’s Open where Belgium’s No.1 seed Tinne Gilis will lock horns with Egyptian No.3 seed Farida Mohamed to decide the destination of the PSA Challenger Tour 30 title.

The pair have met just once on the PSA Tour, with that fixture coming during the 2021 CIB Squash Open Black Ball. World No.18 Mohamed won that match 3-1, but it was a tight win by an 11-9, 11-9, 3-11, 13-11 scoreline.

Gilis has already won two titles on the Challenger Tour this season with back-to-back victories at the Annecy Rose Open and the Cannon Kirk Irish Squash Open in April.

Mohamed, meanwhile, is hoping to win her first PSA title since the Grand Sport Armenian W5 Challenger III back in June, 2019.

The final of the Necker Mauritius Open will pit ‘Peruvian Puma’ Diego Elias up against ‘The Beast’ Mohamed ElShorbagy in what promises to be a mouthwatering final.

ElShorbagy narrowly shades the head-to-head record between the pair, with four wins to Elias’s three, however the latter has won their last two matches.

Elias comes into tonight’s title decider after dispatching top seed Paul Coll in devastating fashion. It was as close to a perfect performance as you’ll see from the World No.5, who put New Zealand’s Coll to the sword in a statement 3-0 victory.

ElShorbagy, meanwhile, looks like a man reborn following a mixed run of form – by his lofty standards, at least – earlier this season.

Working with coach and former rival Gregory Gaultier, the World No.3 – who will compete in his first final under the England flag after switching allegiance from Egypt earlier this week – reached the final of the CIB PSA World Championships three weeks ago and has now made it three finals in his past four events.

SquashLevels predict that Elias will lift his third title of the season with a 3-2 upset win over the Englishman.

However, with ElShorbagy back firing on all cylinders, few would bet against him adding to his prolific tally of PSA titles – which would move him above Frenchman Gregory Gaultier to sit fifth in the all-time men’s PSA title winner list.
