retains in style:
The women's final featured
the defending champion Raneem El Welily in an all-Egyptian battle against the
Nour El Sherbini, winner of the ToC, the last World Series
was on top form, playing accurate and imposing squash with very
few errors. Sherbini recovered from an early deficit to take the
first game but after that it was Welily who was mostly in
control as she retained the title.
Shorbagy takes title as
the men's final it was the World number one and winner of the last three World Series events
against the defending champion in a repeat of the ToC final and
last year's Windy City final.
After a competitive first game with the Egyptian pulling away at
the end to take the lead, it became clear that Matthew was
suffering physical problems and after a short second game and
two points of the third he offered his hand.
Another Egypotian double then, and For Welily it was a return to
winning ways, for Shorbagy a fourth major title in a row and a
20th overall PSA win.
