There has been an update to the men’s Manchester Open draw due to the withdrawal of former World No.1 Gregory Gaultier, Peru’s World No.6 Diego Elias, Colombia’s World No.9 Miguel Rodriguez and former World No.9 Daryl Selby.
The Manchester Open will take place at the National Squash Centre between September 16-22 and will feature both a men’s and women’s draw at the first PSA World Tour event since the six-month suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
England’s former World No.1 James Willstrop will replace Rodriguez in the draw and now faces Pakistan’s Tayyab Aslam in round one.
Meanwhile, England’s World No.43 George Parker comes into the draw and will line up against Egypt’s World No.11 Mohamed Abouelghar on the opening day of action.
Other changes see Scotland’s Greg Lobban take Gaultier’s place in the draw and now faces England’s Richie Fallows in round one, who comes into the main draw. Nathan Lake will face World No.2 Ali Farag in the opening round.
Joel Makin becomes the No.8 seed and will face England’s Tom Richards in round one, with Declan James taking on France’s Victor Crouin.
Frenchman Benjamin Aubert takes Selby’s place in the draw for the tournament, and will face World No.7 Marwan ElShorbagy in the first round.
The Manchester Open will be shown live on SQUASHTV (rest of world), Eurosport Player (Europe only), the official Facebook page of the PSA World Tour (excluding Europe and Japan) and multiple mainstream broadcast channels around the world.
