Gaultier Leads Plethora Of International Gold Medalists In Men's NetSuite Open Draw

2015 World Champion Gregory Gaultier will go toe-to-toe with three-time World Champion and Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Nick Matthew, Pan American Gold Medalist Miguel Angel Rodriguez, Asian Games Gold Medalists Saurav Ghosal and Max Lee and 2014 Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Cameron Pilley when the 2016 NetSuite Open gets underway on September 27 in one of the most competitive ever editions of the PSA M100 tournament,

In what promises to be a compelling battle for the title, 2014 winner Gaultier will be hoping to regain the silverware ahead of a field that includes seven of the world's top ten players – with 14 nations in total represented in the draw.

“We are delighted to have so many of the world’s top players competing in the 2016 NetSuite Open in what looks certain to be one of the most competitive and entertaining editions of the eight-year-old PSA Tour championship,” said tournament promoter John Nimick.

“While we are very fortunate that players like Gaultier, Matthew and James Willstrop have made San Francisco a regular stop on their schedules, we are equally excited to welcome some of the most talented up-and-coming players in the world this year to create a draw that will have West Coast fans packing in around the all-glass NetSuite Challenge court once again.

“Squash is booming in Northern California and with the NetSuite Open now comprising high level PSA-sanctioned events for both men and women, a new US Squash Junior Gold tournament and the perennial Latitude38 adult skill level tournament, the week is a true squash jamboree.”
