Mohamed Elshorbagy will clash with France's Gregory Gaultier in the El-Gouna International 2016 squash final on Friday.

Egyptian top seed Elshorbagy, runner-up in the last two editions, beat first-time semi-finalist Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez in straight games 11/7, 11/4 and 11/5 to qualify for the final.

On the other side, world champion Gaultier brushed aside another Egyptian semi-finalist in Fares Dessouki to reach his first final of the competition.

The Frenchman needed 61 minutes to edge past the 21-year-old rising star, who is 21st at the PSA world ranking, 3-1; 7/11, 11/4, 11/7, 11/3.
