WASHINGTON DC: Due to a revision of seedings, USA the hosts will now face top seeds and title-holders Egypt in the opening tie of the WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championship 2019. Which will commence from Sunday-16th December at Squash On Fire in Washington DC.
USA have been elevated to 12th seeds (from 13th) and moved into the Pool A group following an 11th-hour revision of the seedings caused by the late withdrawal of Switzerland’s world No.30 Nicolas Müller. The Swiss No.1 sadly had to return home following the death of his mother.
The weakened Switzerland team has been re-seeded at 15, raising USA to 12, Colombia to 13 and Canada to 14. All other seedings remain the same.
The 26th edition of the biennial World Squash Federation championship, featuring 23 nations, is being hosted by US Squash at the new state-of-the-art eight-court Squash On Fire facility from 15-21 December.
Today’s revised pool line-ups, including team seedings in brackets, are:
- POOL A:  Egypt,  USA,  Switzerland
- POOL B:  England,  Wales,  Canada,  Nigeria
- POOL C:  France,  Malaysia,  Colombia,  Republic of Korea
