Ali Farag and Hania El Hammamy have sealed their places at the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour Finals after winning Egyptian Open titles in front of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Farag battled Paul Coll in the men's final, with the New Zealander also seeking to usurp his Egyptian rival as number one in the world.

Farag came out on top in the first game, triumphing 11-6, but Coll responded to the setback by taking the second game 11-8.

This did little to upset Farag's rhythm as he rallied to win the next two games 11-4, 11-7 to get his hands on the pyramid-shaped trophy for a third time.

Victory means Farag joins Qatar Classic champion Mohamed ElShorbagy - also Egyptian - as the only man to have already qualified for the season-ending competition.

Victor Crouin of France currently leads the men's standings in the race to the PSA World Tour Finals with 3,670 points.

Meanwhile, El Hammamy became the first woman to reach the finale after taking down fellow Egyptian and world number one Nouran Gohar in four games.

El Hammamy, who was making her first appearance of the season, unsettled Gohar by winning game one 11-7, before the two fiercely battled for the second, though the top-ranked player ultimately levelled the score with a 13-11 triumph.

Gohar's fightback did not faze El Hammamy as she then went on to cruise the next two games 11-3, 11-4 to win her first Egyptian Open crown.

El Hammamy also rises to world number two thanks to her achievement.

Gohar is top of the women's leaderboard for PSA World Tour Finals qualification with 3,560 points.
