Nour El Sherbini

El Sherbini ruled out of British and Manchester Opens

Egyptian World No.1 Nour El Sherbini has withdrawn from the upcoming Allam British Open and Manchester Open, which are taking place from March 28-3 April and 13-18 April, respectively.

Defending British Open champion El Sherbini suffered a hip injury during her CIB Black Ball Open final against Nouran Gohar last week and has been unable to recover in time to compete in Hull and Manchester.

Following El Sherbini's British Open withdrawal, there will be a number of movements in the draw, including Gohar moving up to top seed, with Hania El Hammamy replacing her as No.2 seed. Spain's World No.48 Cristina Gomez enters the draw and will play Egypt's Nada Abbas in the first round.

Meanwhile, England's Sarah-Jane Perry will now be No.1 seed in Manchester, with New Zealand's Joelle King moving up to No.2 seed. Hong Kong's Tsz Wing Tong enters the draw and will face Egypt's Hana Ramadan in the first round.
