Team USA’s Amanda Sobhy will take on the 2016 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions top seed, Raneem El Welily, Sunday night, after cruising through a three-game opening victory over Welsh qualifier Deon Saffery Satuday afternoon.

In last year’s Tournament of Champions quarterfinals, El Welily defeated the Harvard graduate in four games. El Welily, who became the first Egyptian female to reach world No. 1 in September, then defeated Sobhy in three games twice this fall in the China Open and Hong Kong Open.

The second round match is streaming live on SquashTV at 7pm ET.

Sobhy is the only remaining American in the tournament after teammate Olivia Blatchford fell against world No. 1 Laura Massaro. In her first career match against the 2015 Delaware Investments U.S. Open champion, Blatchford pushed Massaro to four games, which included an impressive third game win that had ten outright winners.

All glass court matches are streaming live on SquashTV.
