Ali Farag, Noran Gohar are US Open Champions

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).

Nour El-Tayeb was the first Egyptian to win the US Open Championship in 2017 before Raneem Al-Waily won the title in the next edition.

At the men’s level, Ali Farag managed to win his second title at the US Open after beating Mohammed Al-Shorbagi to repeat the 2017 final.

Farag won with three sets without charge (11-4, 11-7, 11-2) in a 40-minute match.

Mohammed El Shorbagi has won the US Open three times in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

Egypt’s champions are preparing to take part in the Women’s World Championships and Egypt’s International Men’s Championship in the Pyramids from October 24 to November 1.
