Egypt's world No.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy ended hopes of Amr Shabana retaining his J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions title with an impressive 3:2 victory over his 35-year-old fellow countryman. It was one of the most impressive matches ever seen at Grand Central Terminal in the competition's 18-year association with the iconic New York venue.
After beating world No.6 Peter Barker in a 120-minute encounter in the 2nd round, Colombia's Miguel Angel Rodriguez pulled off the biggest victory of his career, with a thrilling 3:2 victory over French World No.2 Greg Gaultier in the quarter-finals of the 2015 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in New York.
Four-time World Champion Amr Shabana (ri) says he is relishing the prospect of returning to New York for the 2015 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions to defend his last year’s title at Grand Central Terminal.
Mohamed Elshorbagy, Gregory Gaultier and England’s Nick Matthew, the world’s three highest ranked players, will be playing to a brand new audience at the AJ Bell British Squash Grand Prix after it has been confirmed today that it will be broadcasted live in the UK by BT Sport.
Reigning champion Nick Matthew got off to a successful start, as he overcame German opponent Raphael Kandra 11-2, 11-6, 10-12, 11-1 in his opening match of the 2014 Qatar PSA World Championship in Doha.
