As Team USA juniors compete against Team Ontario in the ‘Battle of the Border’ this weekend, so will three Americans professionally at the Canadian National Squash Academy in Toronto, August 11-16.

Boosted by his two $1,000 Professional Squash Association (PSA) Bay Club Open titles this summer, twenty-three-year-old Chris Hanson is the only American slated for the main draw of the $5,000 PSA Colony Ford Lincoln National Squash Academy Open.

Hanson, who reached his highest career world ranking of 242 in August, faces Seattle-based Pakistani international Shahjahan Khan in what will be the first encounter of their young careers. Nineteen-year-old Khan qualified for a number of PSA tournaments in 2014, which also resulted in his highest career world ranking of 121 this month.

Brown University Alum Bradbury Thompson and eighteen-year-old Cody Cortes will vie for main draw positions in qualifying.
