High hopes for Ramy’s return to Linkoping in February
By Squash Mad Reporter
The CASE Swedish Open will return to the PSA World Tour in 2015 when some of the world’s best players will descend on the town of Linköping for the PSA International 70 tournament.
Qualification will get under way on February 3 with the title, won in 2014 by England’s World Champion Nick Matthew, set to be decided on Sunday February 8 and with the likes of World No.1 Gregory Gaultier and maverick crowd-favourite Ramy Ashour other regular names to appear on the draw sheet, the 2015 tournament is likely to be as strong as ever.
With every match to take place on the all-glass court at Linköping Sporthall, Swedish squash fans are set to experience a festival week of squash with the CASE Squash Cup running in conjunction with the PSA tournament, featuring some of the countries most promising junior and masters players competing in over 20 competition categories.
Having been held for the first time in the 1970s, the Swedish Open has grown to become one of the biggest International-level tournaments on the PSA World Tour calendar and will enter its twelfth year under the stewardship of ActiPro events.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming some of the world’s best squash players back to Linköping in 2015,” said Fredrik Johnson, CEO of ActiPro.
“The CASE Swedish Open is always a fantastic event and I am sure that in 2015 we will once again see some world class action on the magnificent glass court during what promises to be a very exciting week of squash here in Sweden.
“We’re delighted to be adding the CASE Squash Cup to the week’s proceedings and look forward to watching some of the stars of the future competing against the most established names in squash.”
