While the world’s eyes turn to Seattle, Washington, this weekend for the 2015 Men’s World Championship, a group of upcoming professionals are in Madison, Wisconsin, to contest the $5,000 U.S. Pro Series Madison Open in search of valuable rankings points at Madison Squash Workshop to propel them to the world’s top stage.
An all-English final is predicted between top-seeded Angus Gillams, twenty years old and world No. 103, and two seed Rueben Phillips, twenty-three years old and world No. 124.
Gillams is seeded to meet another twenty-year-old Englishman, Alex Noakes, in the draw’s top half semifinal. Phillips is seeded to meet Cayman Islander Cameron Stafford, twenty-three years old, in the draw’s bottom half semifinal.
