United States duo Amanda Sobhy and Reeham Sedky will meet in the final of the Novum Energy Texas Open Women’s Squash Championship after defeating Egyptians Nada Abbas and Mayar Hany, respectively, to set up the first all-American final at the tournament.
World No.18 Sobhy will compete in her first PSA World Tour final since rupturing her Achilles tendon in the semi-finals of the Ciudad de Floridablance tournament last March.
The 24-year-old came from a game down against number six seed Abbas to win 4-11, 11-5, 11-9, 11-3 in 28 minutes.
Sobhy will now face United States qualifier Sedky in the final of the PSA W25 tournament after she defeated number four seed Hany.
Hany – who was aiming to capture her third successive PSA World Tour title – took the first game before Sedky fought back to continue her ‘giant killing’ ways at the tournament, after knocking out number one seed Hania El Hammamy and number seven seed Danielle Letourneau in the previous rounds, to win 9-11, 11-1, 11-9, 11-6.
This will be the World No.223’s first final on the PSA World Tour after previously not making it past round one of qualifying in her previous four tournaments at the U.S. Open in 2017, 2016 and 2015 and the Tournament of Champions in 2015.
