Egypt’s Squash Players on Quick Climb to Success

By Maydaa Abo El-Nadar

Egypt’s Squash Player Mohamed El-Sherbini achieves his fourth Professional Squash Association (PSA) title after defeating England’s Kyle Finch on May 6.

In the final match of the Bull Ring Open Squash Championship, El-Sherbini won by a score of 3-0 (11-4/11-8/11-2).

Throughout the whole championship, El-Sherbini only lost one game which was in the first round of the match, against Belgium’s Joeri Hapers. This match ended 3-1 (11-6/6-11/11-9/11-6) to El-Sherbini.

In the quarterfinals El-Sherbini defeated England’s Mark Fuller by 3-0 (11-8/11-5/11-7), while in the semifinal the Egyptian champion won against France’s Benjamin Aubert by 3-0 (11-9/11-9/11-2).

The Pharaoh is taking a quick climb to the ladder of success. On April 13, he achieved his first ever PSA title by winning the Assore & Baldwin Parkview Open. 

On April 21, he clinched his second title after winning the West Rand Open.

One week later, on April 28, the Egyptian champion won his third title in row, thanks to being the champion of the Keith Grainger Memorial UCT Open Squash Championship.

The four tournaments took place in South Africa, which seems to be the country of luck for El-Sherbini. “South Africa I am sure you will remember my name for a long time,” El-Sherbini said in a Facebook status.

Egypt’s Menna Hamed has defeated South Africa’s Milany Louw by 3-1. Although the match started by Louw winning the first game by 7-11, the Pharaoh turned the table and won the following three games by 11-5, 11-7 and 11-8, respectively.

This is the third PSA’s title for Hamed. Her first one was on the second of March 2017 as she won the Riga Ladies Open Squash.

Her second PSA title came after winning the Grainger Memorial UCT Open Squash Championship on April 28.
