Texas Open 2019

Sobhy aiming for second Lone Star success

The J Warren Young Memorial Texas Open gets underway this week in the heart of the Lone Star State. Dallas is the city that will play host to the event this year, with reigning champion and home favourite Amanda Sobhy looking to defend her title.

Sobhy is one of three Americans in the field, along with Haley Mendez and Olivia Fiechter, who will both be looking for victory on home soil.

Sobhy is second seed for the tournament, behind England’s Sarah-Jane Perry. There are two other Brits among the eight seeds alongside Perry, Tesni Evans and Victoria Lust, and a pair of Egyptians in Nadine Shahin and Nada Abbas.
