CAIRO, 14 October 2019: Wadi Degla duo Ali Farag, the world number one, and Noran Gohar, ranked fifth in the world, won the US Open Squash Championship.

Noran Gohar achieved the first title in their history and the third in the history of Egypt after beating Nour El-Tayeb in a historic come-back.

Noran Gohar lost the first two sets (11-3, 11-8) before she managed to come back in the score and win three consecutive sets (14-12, 11-8, 11-7).
