The draw for the 2015 PSA Men’s World Championship has been announced. The tournament will be played in Bellevue, Washington, between 15 and 22 November. 

“The World Championship is the most prestigious title in and to be taking the sport’s pinnacle event to an American audience for the first time in history is tremendously exciting for everyone involved,”claims PSA CEO Alex Gough.

Ramy Ashour defeated compatriot Mohamed El Shorbagy – who is currently ranked at no.1 in the world – in the 2014 final in Doha, and with both Egyptians on opposite sides of the draw, there may well be a repeat of last year’s final.

Below are the ties involving at least one Egyptian player:

[1] Mohamed Elshorbagy v Alfredo Avila (MEX)
Ali Farag v [Qualifier]
[11] Peter Barker (ENG) v Karim Ali Fathi
Nasir Iqbal (PAK) v Fares Dessouki
Omar Abdel Meguid v Adrian Waller (ENG)
[4] Ramy Ashour v Mazen Hesham
