The top American squash players will vie for the first S.L. Green U.S. Men’s Championship and U.S. Women’s Championship titles since 2019, June 14-17, at the Arlen Specter US Squash Center in Philadelphia.
All matches will live stream from the Specter Center’s two all glass show courts, and attendance is free and open to the public. View streaming, draws and match times on the U.S. Championships tournament page.
The men’s and women’s draws will offer prize money parity, and includes Team USA’s top-ranked professionals, college players and juniors.
“This is an important event to have back on the calendar for our top American players, and it’s certainly exciting to host it at the Specter Center for the first time,” said Ong Beng Hee, the Ganek Family US Squash Head National Coach. “Many of these players have trained together here throughout our first full season at the Specter Center and know each other’s games well. This tournament presents an opportunity for both new and familiar faces to prove themselves on court, and will no doubt be a spectacle for squash fans.”
The 2019 U.S. Championships saw Todd Harrity and Olivia Blatchford Clyne lift the iconic trophies together in Washington, DC, and both players return to defend their titles.
The women’s draw features Team USA’s four top-twenty-five-ranked players as the top four seeds: world No. 4 Amanda Sobhy, world No. 10 Olivia Fiechter, world No. 22 Sabrina Sobhy and world No. 23 Blatchford Clyne.
Amanda Sobhy, who is in search of her fifth career national title, leads the women’s draw and could face nineteen-year-old Marina Stefanoni or Blatchford Clyne in the semifinals. Three years ago, Fiechter was ranked world No. 52 in the midst of her first season as a full time professional, and the twenty-six-year-old now enters nationals as world No. 10 and the two seed. Sabrina Sobhy, the 2014 champion and three seed, enters nationals following a world championship third round appearance last month and could face Fiechter in the semifinals.
The men’s draw will feature a first-time contestant and top seed in world No. 31 Shahjahan Khan, who will make his debut after becoming a U.S. citizen and choosing to represent Team USA over his birthright Pakistan. Khan could face 2013 champion Chris Gordon or four seed and Specter Center training partner Timmy Brownell in the semifinals.
World No. 36 Todd Harrity opposes Khan in the draw as the two seed. The thirty-one-year-old’s path to a fourth national title could include difficult hurdles against world No. 78 Spencer Lovejoy in the quarterfinals, and three seed Faraz Khan or two-time finalist Andrew Douglas in the semifinals.
