Today sees the remaining players in both the men's and women's draws battle it out for a place in the semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Gold tournament in Shanghai.

Today sees some fascinating match ups with the likes of Egyptian pair Marwan ElShorbagy and Omar Mosaad, along with New Zealand's Joelle King – the only non-Egyptian female player left in the draw – taking on rising talent and World Junior champion Hania El Hammamy for a place in the last four over on the side courts at the SECA Academy.

The other quarter final matches at the side courts will see India’s World No.10 Saurav Ghosal take on Egyptian shot maker Mazen Hesham, while No.3 seed Nour El Tayeb takes on compatriot Nadine Shahin in the women’s draw.

Evening matches will take place on the glass court atop the Peninsula Shanghai, which overlooks the Bund and will see World No.1 and defending champion Raneem El Welily face compatriot Salma Hany, while men's World No.1 Ali Farag faces England's former World No.12 Tom Richards.
