Ramy finally confirms for British Open

Ramy Ashour in action in the 2008 Tournament of ChampionsRumours that Ramy Ashour would skip the British Open after missing last year's event have proved unfounded.

The Egyptian world number 2 was confirmed in a mailout on Friday from the organisers, iSPORTmedia ...

British crowds have had few chances to see the 20 year-old from Cairo on these shores, but Ashour's statement in the email suggests he is looking forward to playing the BO and the Super Series Finals in Broadgate, London:

"English crowds have always given me a lot of support, and having not played in England since winning the ATCO Super Series Finals last August, I'm really looking forward to playing two back-to-back events".

The strongest line-up for the British Open for a number of years includes World number 1 and World Champion Amr Shabana, fellow Egyptian Karim Darwish, the Frenchmen Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou, Aussie David Palmer and England hopes Nick Matthew and James Willstrop.
