2015 US Open Draws Released
By Squash Mad Reporter

The draws for the 2015 Delaware Investments US Open – the first PSA World Series event of the 2015/16 season – has been released and will see some of the top stars on the PSA World Tour pitted against each other from the off in what promises to be a dramatic week of action across both the men’s and women’s tours.

Philadelphia’s Drexel University will play host to the week-long event which gets underway on October 10, when World No.1s Mohamed Elshorbagy and Raneem El Welily will begin their campaigns against potentially tricky opposition in the form of Cesar Salazar and Emily Whitlock, respectively.

In the men’s draw defending champion Elshorbagy will be pleased to see championship rivals Nick Matthew, the World No.2, Gregory Gaultier, the World No.3 and World No.4 Miguel Angel Rodriguez all drawn against difficult first round opposition in the form of top 25 players Chris Simpson, Saurav Ghosal and Stephen Coppinger.

In the women’s draw El Welily will be hoping to add to the China Open title she won earlier this month while defending champion Nicol David will be aiming to make a successful return from injury to lift the title for a fifth consecutive year but could face talented Egyptian youngster Nouran Gohar – the 17-year-old that knocked her out of the China Open at the quarter-final stage – in the second round of what is a tough looking women’s draw,
