The quarter finals of the CIB Black Ball Women’s Squash Open take place this evening in Cairo, while the Canary Wharf Classic reaches the semi-final stage in London’s East Wintergarden – all the action will be shown LIVE on SQUASHTV (Rest of World), Eurosport Player (Europe only), and the official Facebook page of the PSA World Tour (excluding Europe and Japan for the Black Ball Squash Open and for Indian Subcontinent only for Canary Wharf).
The race for the title continues at Black Ball Sporting Club as the competition hots up for a place in the semi-finals.
World No.10 Hania El Hammamy will face USA’s World No.8 Amanda Sobhy in the first last eight battle of the day at 17:00 local time in Cairo (GMT+2).
There will also be match-ups between France’s Coline Aumard, who is featuring in her first Platinum quarter final, against reigning World Champion Nour El Sherbini.
They are followed on court by England’s No.1 Sarah-Jane Perry against unseeded Nada Abbas, who received a walkover into the last eight after World No.2 Nouran Gohar was forced to withdraw from last night’s match due to injury.
The last semi-final spot will be decided between World No.1 Raneem El Welily and World No.5 Nour El Tayeb in what is sure to be a thrilling end to a strong day of action at the PSA Platinum event.
In Canary Wharf, we have reached the semi-final stage with all-Egyptian battles set up to see who will reach the final of the PSA World Tour Gold event with play now reverting to the traditional best of five format.
There will be a blockbuster battle between World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy and World Champion Tarek Momen in the first match of the day in London in a repeat of their semi-final from 2019 which Momen won 3-1, before losing to New Zealand’s Paul Coll in the final.
Following that, World No.8 Marwan ElShorbagy will go up against World No.2 Ali Farag in the eighth encounter on the PSA Tour.
Marwan ElShorbagy is one of few players who has the better head-to-head record against the former World No.1, with him holding four victories to Farag’s three.
However, Farag did score the last win over his compatriot with a straight games victory in round three of last season’s Allam British Open.
All the action from both tournaments will be streamed live on SQUASHTV (Rest of World), Eurosport Player (Europe only), and the official Facebook page of the PSA World Tour (excluding Europe and Japan for the Black Ball Squash Open and for Indian Subcontinent only for Canary Wharf).
Live scoring will also be available here here.
