The group stage of the CIB PSA World Tour Finals concludes today, as the tour’s top players compete to reach the semi-finals at the Mall of Arabia in Cairo.
Play begins at 19:00 (GMT+2) in Group A with Egypt’s World No.1 Nouran Gohar versus New Zealand’s Joelle King. While Gohar is already through, the Kiwi goes into the match needing to beat the Egyptian while hoping that England’s Georgina Kennedy can do her a favour by beating the USA‘s Amanda Sobhy.
The second match is a battle for pride as the already-eliminated Diego Elias faces Mazen Hesham, before the clash between Sobhy and Kennedy. Any win for Sobhy will see the World No.4 through to the semis, and the American could also progress with a 2-1 defeat if Gohar defeats King. Kennedy, meanwhile, needs to record a 2-0 win and hope that Gohar beats King to make it through.
There’s a battle for top spot in Group A in the second men’s match, as Egypt’s top seed Ali Farag goes up against England’s No.5 seed Mohamed ElShorbagy.
The day’s play concludes with two sets of players who have been eliminated from contention, as England’s Sarah-Jane Perry plays Egypt’s Rowan Elaraby and Egypt’s Tarek Momen faces Wales’ Joel Makin.
