It’s been more than seven months since someone last won a platinum title. Hania El Hammamy did this with the CIB Black Ball Women’s Squash Open in March, but this is another era of squash that COVID-19 era, and the winners today will be the first winners of a major tournament under these new protocols.
In addition to the possibility of winning an important title, the world rankings No. 1 in the world rankings for men and women are also on the program tonight, with the possibility of a completely different combination at the summit on November 1st.
World Champion No. 1 competes against World Champion in the women’s final, while Nouran Gohar competes against Nour El Sherbini, while World Champion Tarek Momen competes against Ali Farag, the top seed of the tournament, for the men’s crown.

Here is the order of the game
(All times are local – ZONE)
Women’s Final: Nouran Gohar vs. Nour El Sherbini
That came at the JP Morgan China Squash Open and was one of El Sherbini’s ten wins against ‘The Terminator’, who only has three wins in that match. Two of them came in their last three battles, but it was the ‘Warrior Princess’ who won their last duel in the CIB PSA World Tour Final two weeks ago.
Compared to Gohar’s 196 minutes on the field, El Sherbini has spent an hour less in action and only lost a single game. That was yesterday’s encounter with Nour El Tayeb, which she won 3-1 after comfortable victories in a row against the Australian Donna Lobban, the Canadian Danielle Letourneau and the Indian Joshna Chinappa.
Can El Sherbini claim another win at this location after winning the World Cup on her birthday last year? Or will the number 1 in the world shape its authority at the top of the world rankings?
Men’s finals: Ali Farag versus Tarek Momen
This meeting in Chicago in March 2019 was one of eleven previous duels the Egyptian couple had on the PSA World tour with a 7-4 lead from Farag. However, they are 1-1 in the finals, with ‘the Viper’ winning the channel in 2018 YOU Championships on St. George’s Hill in an 87-minute epic.
Momen had to fight two intense five-game fights in the past few days to reach this stage. After beating Fares Dessouky and Cesar Salazar of Mexico in the first round, it took him 90 minutes to beat Diego Elias, number 6 in the world, before beating Marwan ElShorbagy in a tumultuous battle.
Can Farag recapture first place in the world in style? Or will Momen spoil the party by winning a first title on Egyptian soil?
