World No.6 Nour El Tayeb Withdraws

World No.6 Nour El Tayeb has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming British Open due to an ongoing injury that she hasn’t been able to recover from in time for the event.

England’s Georgina Kennedy now replaces El Tayeb as a top eight seed and receives a bye in round one and will now play the winner of an all-Egyptian battle between Zeina Mickawy and Hana Ramadan.

Egypt’s Farida Mohamed has moved to a 9/16 seed and also receives a bye in the opening round and will now face a round two clash against either Wales’ Emily Whitlock or India’s Joshna Chinappa for a place in the third round.

Fellow Egyptian Yathreb Adel has become a 17/32 seed and faces England’s Lucy Beecroft in the first round. Whilst, Finland’s Emilia Soini enters the draw and will play Malaysia’s Aifa Azman for a spot in the second round.
