Morgan Tournament of Champions winners after respective victories over compatriots and World No.1s Mohamed ElShorbagy and Raneem El Welily.

El Sheribini also secured an incredible title as she became the first women’s three-time tournament champion.

The world’s top players will head to Chicago for the 2018-19 PSA World Championships, which will take place between February 23-02 March in the Grand Hall at Union Station.
