World class squash descends on Cairo, Egypt this week as the season-ending CIB PSA World Tour Finals take place from September 28 – October 3 with action LIVE on SQUASHTV (Rest of World) and Eurosport Player (Europe only), as well as broadcasters around the world and the official Facebook page of the PSA World Tour.
The tournament will finally bring the 2019-2020 PSA World Tour season to a close, following the enforced six-month suspension of the tour due to COVID-19. The event will take place at the Mall of Arabia, the same venue in which Raneem El Welily and Karim Abdel Gawad lifted the titles back in June 2019.
Gawad will be one of the main contenders in the men’s draw this week, after reaching the final of the Manchester Open in the first tournament back after lockdown. He is in Group A, alongside compatriot Tarek Momen, Peru’s Diego Elias and German No.1 Simon Rösner.
World Champion Tarek Momen heads up Group B, where he will face the man he defeated in that final in Qatar back in November, Paul Coll. Egypt’s Marwan ElShorbagy and Welshman Joel Makin also feature in the second men’s group, with the latter appearing in this tournament for the first time in his career.
Current World Champion Nour El Sherbini and current World No.1 Nouran Gohar will be alongside each other in Group A in the women’s draw, with England’s Sarah-Jane Perry and New Zealand’s Joelle King, both of whom performed well in Manchester last week.
The two finalists from the PSA Silver event, winner Nour El Tayeb and runner-up Camille Serme, will do battle once more as the top two seeds in Group B. They will face tricky tests against Hania El Hammamy and Amanda Sobhy to make it through to the semi-finals.
There will be four days of group match action, with the top two players from each group going through to the semi-finals. The sixth day of the tournament will finally draw the curtain down on the 2019-2020 PSA World Tour season.
Coverage from the CIB PSA World Tour Finals begins at 18:00 (GMT+2) on Monday, September 28 when group stage action begins.
