Egypt has three of the semifinalists who have made it to the round of the last four at the PSA Black Ball Women's Squash Open, currently taking place at the club's premises in the 5th settlement, New Cairo.

A high spectator turnout is expected for the two semifinal matches of the $107,000 prize money event.

Match one (19:00)

In an all-Egyptian semifinal, world number 1 Raneem El-Welilli is scheduled to take on compatriot Nouran Gohar in the first match of the day. To reach the semis, El-Wellili needed only 31 minutes to beat the former world no 1 Laura Massaro 3-0 in straight sets (11-7, 11-7, 11-4), while world no 8 Gohar beat fellow countrywoman Hania El- Hammammy 3-1 in 48 minutes (6-11, 11-7, 11-4, 11-4).

Match two (20:00)

The second game will feature New Zealand's Joelle King against Egypt's world no 2 Nour El-Sherbini. In the quarter-finals, King, the only non-Egyptian player remaining in the five-day competition, beat India's Joshna Chinappa 3-2 (7-11, 12-10, 2-12, 11-5, 11-8) in a tough match that lasted 64 minutes.

In the quarterfinal, El-Sherbini also had a hard 3-2 (4-11, 12-10, 6-11, 12-7, 11-8) win over France's Camilli Serme, the world no 4. The 23-year-old El Sherbini also took 64 minutes to secure her place in today's semifinals.
