Elshorbagy was 2-1 down and saved multiple match balls, to defeat Salazar during an opening day of action at Philadelphia’s Drexel University that saw the Men’s draw blown wide open.

ElShorbagy, who won the tournament in 2014 to go top of the World Rankings for the first time in his career, struggled to contain an inspired Salazar during their 77 minute battle.

In the end he managed to do just enough in the end to avoid joining World No.3 Omar Mosaad and number seven seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez in exiting the event at the first hurdle, as they fell at the hands of former World No.1 James Willstrop and Malaysian qualifier Nafiizwan Adnan, respectively.
