Youth was ascendent during the semifinals of the U.S. Open presented by Truist as twenty-year-old Mostafa Asal and twenty-one-year-old Hania El Hammamy reached their maiden finals Tuesday, October 5, at the Arlen Specter US Squash Center in Philadelphia.

Defending champion Nouran Gohar ended Olivia Fiechter's remarkable run, while 2019 semifinalist Tarek Momen triumphed in a five-game marathon win over Welshman Joel Makin in front of the late-night crowd.
