CAIRO –8 June 2017: Mohamed Al Shorbagy and his younger brother Marwan are dreaming of facing each other in the final of PSA Dubai World Series which will be held in Dubai from June 6-10, according to the PSA Dubai World Series official website.
The squash brothers have met on the field nine times. Mohamed, world number three, won seven of these encounters, while Marwan, seeded fifth, won only twice.
Both got their PSA World Series career started this season with a victory on Tuesday as Marwan defeated Nick Matthew 2-1. Mohammad , who is a seasoned regular in this event having reached the 2014 final, beat James Willstrop 2-0, according to a Gulf news website.
The brothers are in two separate groups and are hoping to win their upcoming match in order to avoid a semifinal encounter. “It would be a dream come true to play against my brother in the final,” Marwan said.
