Alexandria International 2015

David Heads WSA Alexandria
International Line-Up

Malaysia's world number one Nicol David heads a star-studded line-up at next month's Alexandria International, a new WSA International 100 squash event which will be staged on an all-glass court at the Library of Alexandria.

All but one of the WSA world top ten will compete in the $100,000 event which will take place from 4th to 10th June and will also feature all eight of the Egyptian players in the world top 30.

David begins her bid to reach the 100th WSA World Tour final of her career against England's Victoria Lust - while second seed Raneem El Welily, the world No.2 from Alexandria, also faces English first round opposition in Emily Whitlock.

Camille Serme, the world No.6 who last week became the first ever French winner of the women's British Open trophy, returns to the court for the first time since her historic success when she lines up against Welsh number one Tesni Evans.

"It's great to see a new major women's event in Egypt come on the calendar, in particular after the staging of a highly successful Women's World Championship in Cairo last year," said WSA CEO Tommy Berden.

"The Egyptian players are flourishing on the Tour at the moment, so it is a fantastic opportunity for them to showcase their talent in front of a home crowd."

Tournament promoter Amr Mansi added: "I am very delighted to be able to host this event it has always been a goal for me to host two of the biggest international events for men and women.

"It all started at El Gouna when the governor of Alexandria decided to host a major event in Alexandria - all the credit to him for his support and hard work. Looking forward to welcome all the top players in my hometown Alexandria."
