Watch Live Action from the Windy City Open

The Windy City Open presented by the Walter Family & EquiTrust Life Insurance Company gets under way on Thursday February 22 as the top players in the world descend on Chicago for the next World Series event on the PSA World Tour calendar.

The University Club of Chicago’s iconic and intimate Cathedral Hall will play host to the world’s best players between February 22 – 28 with the action shown LIVE on SQUASHTV and Eurosport Player.

Egypt’s Raneem El Welily will return once more to defend her title, which she has claimed on the last three occasions, but will face tough competition from compatriots Nour El Sherbini and Nour El Tayeb as well as England’s Laura Massaro and France’s Camille Serme.

In the men’s event, Egypt's Mohamed ElShorbagy heads up the draw as he looks to capture another World Series title this season but will have to hold off competition from compatriot Ali Farag and recent Tournament of Champions winner Simon Rösner.
