Carol Weymuller Open: Gohar Downs El Tayeb To Take Title

World No.3 Nouran Gohar is the 2020 Carol Weymuller Open winner after getting the better of the defending champion, and World No.4, Nour El Tayeb, with a stunning performance in the final in Brooklyn.

The Egyptian, who is the current U.S. Open and British Open champion, continued her run of reaching at the least the semi-finals of every tournament she has entered since May, and this is her third crown in that time, following her two PSA World Tour Platinum tournament victories.

The first game was tight, with the score level at 6-6 at one point, but ‘The Terminator’ took a run of points which helped her into the lead of the match, as she claimed the first game 11-9.

Over the course of the next two games, Gohar restricted her compatriot to just seven points, as she rounded out the victory in less than half an hour, to take the PSA World Tour Bronze crown away from El Tayeb, who had won the last edition of the event, back in October 2018.

Up next for Gohar is a return to the Platinum scene, with the Windy City Open 2020 presented by the Walter Family, while El Tayeb will feature in this week’s Cleveland Classic before making the trip to Chicago.
