Order of Play
(All times local GMT-4)

Nouran Gohar v Amanda Sobhy

The women's final will see both Gohar and Sobhy aiming to win the iconic Tournament of Champions title for the first time in their careers.

For Gohar, tonight marks her fifth final in a row, with the Egyptian coming out on top in three of those. Meanwhile, for Sobhy this is her second final of the season following her Oracle NetSuite Open victory last year in San Francisco.

The two players have met 11 times previously on the PSA World Tour, with American Sobhy holding a narrow 6-5 advantage in the head-to-head over the World No.1.

Head-to-head record: Nouran Gohar v Amanda Sobhy

In recent times it has been Gohar that has been getting the better of the American though, winning the last four meetings with Sobhy's last victory coming at the 2019 Manchester Open.

Their last match was not so long ago in the semi-finals of the Allam British Open where Gohar showed exactly why she is No.1 in the world with a rampant 3-0 victory in 29 minutes.

Since then, Sobhy has had time to reset and admitted in her recent interview with the New York Times that she has been analysing all the ways she can get the better of Gohar the next time they meet.

Spurred on by the home crowd in New York, could this be the moment that Sobhy upsets the order?

This week has been relatively straightforward for top seed Gohar, only dropping one game throughout the tournament which came in last night's semi-final against Sobhy's compatriot Olivia Fiechter and spending a grand total of 105 minutes on court.

Sobhy on the other hand, has been in action for 127 minutes this week with 66 of those minutes coming in last night's thriller of a semi-final against Salma Hany, where she came from 2-1 down to triumph.

SquashLevels prediction: Nouran Gohar v Amanda Sobhy

The SquashLevels algorithm has predicted a 3-1 victory for Gohar in tonight's final, with the Egyptian holding a mighty 91% win likelihood.

However, with the backing of the crowd anything can happen and Sobhy will be determined to add to her trophy tally tonight in New York.

Ali Farag v Diego Elias

The men's final will see Egypt's Farag go up against Peru's Elias under the chandeliers of Grand Central Terminal.

This will be a replay of the Optasia Championships final, which took place in Wimbledon in March, and saw a fiesty match unfold between the pair as Farag battled through a late injury in the warm-up to win 3-1, much to the frustration of Elias.

Farag has spent the least amount of time on court out of all of today's finalists, coming in with 89 minutes on the clock and most impressively no games dropped throughout the week.

Elias on the other hand has been forced to put in the work this week with 150 minutes on court – the most of any of today's finalists – and like Sobhy was forced to come from 2-1 down to reach today's final.

Head-to-head record: Ali Farag v Diego Elias

The history between Farag and Elias on the PSA World Tour dates back to the 2016 Motor City Open, with tonight's meeting being the 17th between the two talented players.

Farag seems to enjoy playing against the Peruvian with 14 victories over Elias, 11 of those have come in the last 11 meetings.

World No.5 Elias' last win over Farag came at the 2017 El Gouna International, however few would dispute that the 25-year-old is a much more consistent player these days and is more than capable of toppling Farag to get his hands on the PSA World Tour Gold title in New York.

SquashLevels Prediction: Ali Farag v Diego Elias

Our friends at SquashLevels have handed the advantage to top seed Farag in tonight's final – handing him a 74% win likelihood and predicting a 3-1 victory in the Egyptian's favour.

You can never write off Elias though and the Peruvian will be out to prove a point in tonight's match.

Tune in at 19:00 local time (GMT-4) on SQUASHTV and our broadcast partners around the world to watch the drama unfold.

We will also have the latest reaction and reports from tonight's finals on our website.
