The seventeen-year-old American first topped Mexican eight seed and world No. 96 Diana Garcia in a quick quarterfinal, 11-5, 11-5, 11-7.
Sobhy next faced Canada’s world No. 80 and six seed Hollie Naughton. Naughton advanced to the semifinal after a four-game upset victory over three seed Carrie Ramsey of England. Sobhy stopped the Canadian’s run and picked up her third career win over Naughton in a three-game semifinal victory, 11-5, 11-6, 11-8.
Two seed Sobhy will take on top seed Heba El Torky in today’s final at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club. El Torky advanced to the final after defeating five seed Nayelly Hernandez of Mexico in a three-game quarterfinal, 11-2, 11-3, 11-5. She then ousted four seed and fellow Egyptian Salma Nassar in four games, 10-12, 13-11, 11-8, 11-7.
Sobhy will hope to replicate her performance against El Torky in August’s National Capital Open quarterfinal in which Sobhy upset El Torky in five games, 12-10, 5-11, 11-1, 8-11, 11-6.
Cecelia Cortes, the other remaining American in yesterday’s action, was dispatched after a three-game quarterfinal loss to Salma Nassar, 11-4, 11-7, 11-2.
