Weaver and Brownell Crowned National Champions

After reaching career-high world rankings recently, Olivia Weaver and Timmy Brownell ended their seasons with a flourish by winning the U.S. Women’s and S.L. Green U.S. Men’s Championships Friday, June 14, at the Arlen Specter US Squash Center.

Finals evening opened up with the men’s final as the top seed and 2022 champion, Timmy Brownell, took on the first-time finalist and two-seed, Shahjahan Khan. After dropping the first game, Brownell battled back to claim the title 8-11, 11-7, 11-9, 11-6 in fifty-two minutes.

At twenty-six years old, Brownell adds his name to the S.L. Green trophy for a second time. Just two weeks ago, Brownell became the first American man to reach a PSA Platinum quarterfinal at the British Open, sending him to the world’s top thirty for the first time in his career.

“There’s a lot of history here, I know how much this tournament means,” Brownell said. “A lot of my heroes are on this trophy when you talk about Chris Hanson, Chris Gordon, Todd Harrity and Julian Illingworth. There are also a lot of great names who never won it so I realize how grateful I am to have won it and have my family name on here. It means the world to me. There was a lot of hard work that went into this. I’m just over the moon.”

A new name will be engraved on the Desai Family Cup for the first time after Weaver reached the nation’s squash summit for the first time. Weaver pulled out a close opening game 13-11 and held the rest of match’s momentum 11-6, 11-6 in thirty-six minutes.

Weaver’s first national title follow’s a semifinal appearance at the PSA World Championships, and reaching a new career high ranking of world No. 4 last month–becoming just the second American woman to reach the world’s top four.

“I knew I was going to have to play extremely well–you always do against Sabrina–we just had a battle the other week at the British Open,” Weaver said. “It’s always enjoyable playing her, she’s one of the best and cleanest player on tour. I was honestly just looking forward to a great match on home soil. Really happy with how I played tonight, and honestly, I can’t believe I’m holding this trophy. When I turned pro I never knew if this was going to be in the cards so to be standing here with it is incredible.”

Day THREE – SABRINA & SHAHJAHAN get their revenge!

Two seeds Sabrina Sobhy and Shahjahan Khan avenged their 2023 losses against Marina Stefanoni and Andrew Douglas, respectively, to reach the finals of the 2024 U.S. Women’s and S.L. Green U.S. Men’s Championships.

The men’s semifinal lineup fielded two rematches of 2023 with both ending in a different result. 2022 champion and top seed Timmy Brownell opened up the evening with a four-game win over 2023 finalist and five seed Spencer Lovejoy.

Two seed Shahjahan Khan then dethroned 2023 champion Andrew Douglas, 11-9, 11-8, 11-2, to reach his maiden U.S. Championship final.

“I’m really happy with my performance and congrats to Andrew for performing well this week,” Khan said. “I’m happy that I performed well in those first two games which was really important. Those could have gone either way. I played well and I’m happy to get to the final. It’s going to be a good show against Timmy, we’ve played so many times in practice matches. It’s great that we’re both in the final and I’m hoping for a good match tomorrow.”

The two women’s semifinals produced decisive victories for the top two seeds Olivia Weaver and Sobhy. Weaver, world No. 6, ended Riya Navani’s impressive run to the semifinals 11-5, 11-4, 11-2 to reach her second consecutive final.

After losing against world No. 54 Marina Stefanoni in the quarterfinals last year, 2014 champion Sobhy put in a dominant performance to reach her fourth career U.S. Championship final. Just last week, Sobhy and Weaver clashed in the third round of the British Open with Weaver winning the match in a narrow five games.

“The season’s nearly done and it’s just a matter keeping that focus as best as you can and make things as efficient as possible,” Sobhy said. “I’m excited for tomorrow. I think the growth of U.S. squash has been tremendous as everyone can see. It’s cool to be back in the final after losing to Marina in the quarters last year. I’m just not going to try to think about winning and just trying to enjoy the last match of the season.”
