Selby Withdraws From Tournament of Champions

England’s Daryl Selby has withdrawn from the upcoming J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions.

The World No.20, who reached the semi finals of the tournament back in 2012, will not feature in New York this week, due to illness.

The Englishman, who captained his country at the WSF World Men’s Team Championships in Washington, D.C. prior to the Christmas break, tweeted out his frustration at having to pull out.

“Gutted to have to withdraw from (probably) my last TOCSquash. Been sick as a dog the last 48 hours from either food poisoning or that Noro virus. I love that glass court, hope everyone has a great tournament (especially the dynamic7sport squad!)”

With Selby’s withdrawal from the first PSA World Tour Platinum event of the calendar year, the main draw has changed, with Lucas Serme taking Selby’s spot, where he will now face Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi.

The reserve, who is yet to be named, will now face Campbell Grayson in the first round of the tournament, which begins on Thursday January 9.

Movements are as follows:
Lucas Serme replaces Daryl Selby and plays Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi
[Reserve 1] replaces Lucas Serme and plays Campbell Grayson.
