Farag won the first game by 11-6. And then, El-Shorbagy won the three following games by 11-9, 11-5, and 12-10. Thus, the match ended 3-1 in El-Shorbagy’s favour.

It did not take long for El-Shorabgy and Farag to meet in a world championship’s final. On October 14. 2017, both met in the US Open Squash’s final which took place in the US. Victory was for Farag who won the final by 3-0 (12-10/11-9/11-8).

 

In this regard, El-Shorbay commented, “He beat me last week, I beat him this week, so maybe it’s going to be his turn next week [in Qatar] but hopefully we’re not going to play again. I thought we played a great match, it was really clean and fair and I’m happy that I was part of that.”

Both squash players Ali Farag and Nour Al-Tayeb won the 2017 U.S. Open Squash Championships making them the first married couple to seal the championship on the same night.
