Frenchman Grégoire Marche will be favourite to move into the main draw of the 2016 El Gouna International after topping the qualification draw released today by the PSA.
Marche faces England’s Angus Gillams in the first round before a seeded decider with Farhan Zaman will decide on who makes the main draw of the final PSA World Series tournament of the season, while Swiss star Nicolas Mueller occupies the number two seeding on the opposite side of the draw.
A total of 14 Egyptians will take to the courts at the Movenpick hotel El Gouna when qualification starts on April 21 with Omar Abdel Meguid and Mohamed Reda the favourites to go through qualification and add their names to the home contingent in the main draw.
