Nele Gilis is the Belgian No.1 and is the sister of fellow PSA World Tour player Tinne Gilis.
She has shown herself to be an adept competitor at junior events with the German Junior U19 Open, the Europan Junior U19 Championship and the Pioneer Junior U19 Cup all going to the youngster in 2014. Gilis narrowly missed out on both the London Open and Edinburgh Open titles in 2014 and 2015, losing out to Yathreb Adel and Fiona Moverley, respectively.
In 2016 Gilis marched to the final of the Paderborn Open, falling short of clinching the title as Nada Abbas sealed the victory over three games. The Belgian then went one better at the Open International Des Volcans sealing victory with a 3-1 win over Amanda Landers-Murphy leading her to break into the world’s top 40 for the first time that year.
The next year Gilis continued her strong form with a win in the final of the Irish Open over five games against England’s Millie Tomlinson. Her next tournament saw her finish runner-up to Fiona Moverley at the Open International de Squash de Nantes. She also made the quarter finals of the Monte Carlo Classic in 2017.
Gilis reached the last eight of the Novum Energy Texas Open Women’s Squash Championship in 2018, before winning the Open International de Squash de Nantes later in the year.
The Belgian then had a slight dip in form, only reaching the last 16 in the Carol Weymuller Open, Cleveland Classic and DPD Open, but bounced back to win the Cannon Kirk Irish Open in April 2019.
Gilis then followed that up by reaching the last eight of a Platinum event for the first time in her career, doing so at the British Open. With that result, she moved into the top 20 in the World Rankings for the first time.
