Egyptian maverick Mazen Hesham has withdrawn from the upcoming Canary Wharf Classic, PSA M70 tournament after continuing to suffer with the leg injury that has plagued his 2016 so far.
The World No.17, whose last PSA World Tour appearance came in December’s Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open, will be replaced as the event’s number eight seed by Spanish former World No.5 Borja Golan.
Golan’s move up to a seeded position means that Pakistan No.1 Nasir Iqbal moves into the main draw and he will face former World No.1 James Willstrop, who would have faced Golan prior to Hesham’s withdrawal, in the opening round as the Yorkshireman looks to kickstart his ambitions of winning this tournament for the fifth time in his career.
