World's Top Eight Set For ROWE British Squash Grand Prix

The ROWE British Grand Prix – Manchester 2011, one of the year’s nine Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Series championships, will take place at the National Squash Centre in Manchester from 19th to 25th September.
 
With entries yet to close, a high-quality field is guaranteed for the biggest event to be staged in the UK in 2011 – led by England's World No1 Nick Matthew and defending champion Ramy Ashour, the World No2 from Egypt.
 
But these formidable players – Matthew is the reigning World Champion and Ashour winner of the world title in Manchester in 2008 – will have their work cut out against competition provided by Egyptians Karim Darwish and Amr Shabana, the World No3 and No5, respectively; Englishmen James Willstrop (World No.4) and Peter Barker (World No.7); plus French pair Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou, both former World No.1’s currently ranked World No.6 and World No.8.
 
And the full draw will feature a number of exciting young players – all eager to make inroads into the elite top eight group after success on the National Squash Centre's spectacular all-glass court.
 
The ROWE British Grand Prix, for the second year the biggest event to be held in England, will be the fourth PSA World Series event of the year, following the Australian Open in Canberra in August.
