Egypt’s Gawad Seals Place in Dubai Finals

After etching his name in last week’s J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, Egyptian World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad guaranteed his place at the season-ending PSA Dubai World Series Finals.

25-year-old Gawad came from behind against World No.3 Gaultier to win 6-11, 11-6, 12-10, 11-6, extending his unbeaten streak to 16 matches to win a third consecutive major title – adding to the Qatar Classic and World Championship titles he won last November.

said the Egyptian who was competing in the PSA World Series tournament title decider for the first time in his career.

As the PSA Dubai World Series Finals is underway in Chicago at the Windy City Open, Gawad is looking forward to the 2017 PSA Dubai World Series Finals slated for June 6-10 at the Dubai Opera house.

He said, “I have dreamed of playing in the World Series Finals, so to be number one in the Road To Dubai Standings is a great feeling right now.”

Gawad added, “I’m very excited about the chance to compete there and hopefully I can continue to enjoy my squash and keep playing well over the next few tournaments.

“If I can do that, then I’ll give myself a good chance to go to Dubai at the end of the season and become the World Series Finals champion.”
